MSR's Impact glove is for riders who want more impact protection for the backs of their hands than the thin, unprotected motocross style gloves favored by so many brands. Riders want more from a glove then this as MSR are those riders too. They know you hit trees, rocks, bushes, cactus, other riders, the ground in all its forms and you do it in the pursuit of your riding fun. A lightweight, impact-absorbing glove that still flows freely with your hand movements is what you need and that is what the Impact glove is. The Impact glove offers knuckle, digit and tendon protection provided by remarkable D3O technology. D3O(r) is a soft, free flowing, flexible material that when impacted temporarily locks up into a much stiffer impact-absorbing material. It is quite simply the most technologically advanced way to protect your delicate knuckles, tendons and ligaments of the back of the hand.
