The STX features a clean design with effective protective foam panels on the fingers and thumb, and the wrist area. The palm panel made out of the Poron®XRD™ shock-absorbent material. Additionally, the side of the glove is reinforced with a single-piece protective layer extending from the tip of the little finger, all the way down through the cuff. The glove’s design provides a superior grip and the A+ grade leather ensures a comfortable and stylish fit.
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.
SOFT FINGER PROTECTORS
With soft fingers' protectors you can enjoy your comfortable ride with getting protected by soft impact absorbers at one time.
HARD TPU MAIN KNUCKLE PROTECTOR
Ergonomically profiled synthetic hard knuckle protector provides exceptional impact and abrasion protection
EXTRA LEATHER ON THE SIDE OF GLOVE
An additional layer of leather as reinforcement panels placed on palm and/or side hand provide additional abrasion resistance and improving overall protection performance.
A pre-curved fingers construction means that the fingers surface is made to reflect the natural glove's position, which is usually an almost closed fist. This way it closes naturally and operates more efficiently on the throttle.
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.
