Featuring best protective materials and multiple comfort attributes, the RS-1 is a perfect sporting glove. Its A+ class natural goatskin construction ensures longevity and elasticity. The outer stitching on the fingers provides with superior and tactile grip, while several ventilated elements keep the air flowing. The glove’s safety features include: Poron®XRD™ impact absorber, KNOX® sliders in the palm area, ceramic-covered SuperFabric® as well as a hard knuckle and finger protectors.
PORON®XRD™ IMPACT ABSORBERS
Imagine that up to 90% of impact force never reach your body. Sounds good, right? That’s because of high performing foams that rapidly hardens under the impact making kind of “forcefield”. On the other hand on molecule level material is able to re-distribute the impact force in many directions so the impact that gets out is dissipated on much larger area.
One of the best cut- and abrasion-resistant materials. The reason why SuperFabric® works so good is that tiny laser-cut ceramic plates are attached over a fabric surface. This unique approach and solution, in addition to the fabric’s surprisingly eco-friendly textiles, demonstrates the high level of performance. In short words - SuperFabric offers over 10x better abrasion resistance performance than leather.
Ergonomic and comfortable, the V-Lock wrist strap features is also designed to be safe. With its adjustment strap positioned at a 30-degree angle, and its buckle on the outer side of the glove, the V-Lock eliminates the need for endless tightening and ensures a good, firm fit, while ensuring your glove will never fall off thanks to its base-of-the-thumb strap placement.
EXTERNAL SEAMS ON FINGERS
Outer seam stitched fingers to reduce pressure in fingers for maximum comfort and functionality
MATERIAL GRIP PATCH
Additional layer of material with improved grip performance for easier and more precise shifter handling.
Additional ventilation panels. Air vent panels are areas where it is possible to provide extra airflow without compromising safety. SHIMA Air Vents are made of a specially selected, breathable material.
Motorcycle clothes, including gloves, should reflect the character of their owner. The SHIMA RS-1 is an expression of their owner's sporting spirit and passion. Naturally, gloves aren't just for show - with this in mind we ensured they provide the maximum possible level of protection. The RS-1 is certified for CE cat. 2 in accordance with EN-13594:2015, guaranteeing the highest possible level of protection, as proven in a series of utterly grueling endurance tests.
The RS-1 is made of the most durable, specially selected materials. Constructed from A+ grade goatskin leather, the glove features a Superfabric palm over a set of impact-absorbing PORON foam absorbers. The wrist features KNOX sliders, while the fingers and knuckles are protected with a set of hard protectors and PORON XRD inserts. To ensure maximum safety, the ring and little fingers have been stitched together, thereby preventing serious injury in the event of an accident.
Safety is a priority. Comfort is a priority. There's no need to sacrifice one for the other, though. The RS-1 features large ventilation panels which ensure your hands stay dry. The large, comfortable wrist fastener prevents the glove from slipping, while the pre-curved fingers, the elastic panels, and the external stitching ensures a sure, stable and tactile grip.
