The Rimfire Glove by Icon 1000 is a modern take on the classic motorcycle glove, it’s fitted with state-of-the-art D3O® knuckle armour – giving it far more protective ability than a standard leather glove. The palm had double-layer leather with 22 stainless steel rivets to offset the chance of palm rash and the leather used is all select drum-dyed French cowhide.
Each finger has a line of perforations to keep your hands cool when underway and the velcro wrist strap has been designed to keep the gloves fixed to your hands, no matter what.
