Announcing the latest in Icon's line of MX inspired street-specific, lightweight riding gloves.
All our standard performance amenities are here such as a pre-curved palm and finger design, thermoplastic rubber knuckle armor, and a secure wrist closure system.
Of course a street motorcycle glove isn't really a glove without a leather palm.
The Twenty-Niner glove features an abrasion resistant premium grade goatskin palm capable of hand to hand combat with gravel choked asphalt.
With its hi-flow mesh backhand the Twenty-Niner glover is perfect for spring and summer riding.
Comment: Bought these for my husband to replace his summer gloves so he only wore them a couple times and then switched to winter gloves. So far he likes them. His old summer gloves were expensive, not a Jafrum product and the leather on the palm was cheap and tore up in one season. The leather on the palm of these look more durable.

I like them
Comment: Bought them and used them three times and the stitching started to fall apart at the thumb. Jafrum quickly sent me another pair. I hope that it was just a defect in the manufacturing of my first pair. They were great for the couple of rides I took with them- plenty of gives to ride with but still a good fit.
Comment: Go perfect with my arc jacket n they came on time!
Icon Twenty Niner Gloves Mens
Comment: These vent really well and are incredibly comfortable for the price. My first pair had a tear where the mesh meets the finger material above the vent on one finger, but Jafrum took them back and is sending me another pair. Do not take that as a quality issue, they are very good gloves, I just got unlucky and got a glove that slipped through quality control unnoticed. Icon makes incredible apparel.
Good Hot Weather Glove
Comment: The Icon 29er is a good summer weight glove. Fits as advertised. I expected the knuckle guards to be made of hard plastic, but they are rubberized plastic.
Icon Twenty-Niner Gloves
Comment: Just completed a 3500 mile journey through UT, CO, WY, MT, ID, NV, and CA, and wore these gloves every day on the bike. They're very comfortable. They padded more than one big bug to the knuckles, yet were cool and airy. I was undecided between Med/Lg, and opted for Lg., which fit just right.
Icon Twenty-Niner Mesh Gloves.
Comment: My first pair of riding gloves, They were comfortable to wear and did not even think that I had anything unusual on my hands. I like the idea of the knuckle protection feature and hope I never have a need for them.

Today we’re going to look at a pair of gloves for every riding condition,
from a variety of different pricepoints, from a variety of manufacturers.
The first pair is from an apparel company called River Road. River Road
specializes in cruiser apparel and makes everything from Jackets to gloves and
boots. The Hollister glove is one of your favorites. These fingerless gloves
have an all leather construction with padded palms, vented knuckles, an
expansion seem on the top of the hand, and an adjustable hook and loop closure
at the wrist. These are perfect for hot weather riding. The design promotes cool
comfortable hands while maintaining a firm grip on the handlebars…
Another one of your favorite warm weather gloves are these 29’ers from Icon.
This is a glove that offers excellent breathability from the large cell mesh
construction and finger vents on the top of the hand, but also sneaks a fair
amount of protection in there with their padded Battlehide goatskin leather
palms and padded knuckle protection. They also feature reinforced areas all the
way around the finger tips, and an adjustable hook and loop strap at the wrist
for added comfort. I own a pair of these gloves myself for around town riding
and I agree with you, they’re great.
The next glove on your list is sort of a hybrid style glove. This Drymesh glove
from TourMaster combines the breathability of an all mesh glove with a
waterproof, breathable membrane to keep your hands dry. This membrane makes this
a great solution in all sorts of different riding conditions. The top of the
hand is well vented and protected by this abrasion resistant Armor-Link mesh
material. The palm is constructed using perforated goatskin with padded areas
for vibration absorption. Cool when you want to be cool? – Dry when you want to
be dry? Believe me, I get it.
Next, we have hands down one of the best values in motorcycle gloves you’ll find
anywhere. These are the GL2068 Naked Leather riding gloves available exclusively
from Jafrum. These gloves are made of very high quality naked cowhide leather
making them incredibly soft. They are windproof but the full aniline leather is
breathable, which allows water vapor to escape, which keeps your hands from
getting overly sweaty. The glove features a reinforced panel on the palm and
thumb and a dual hook and loop strap for added style and an adjustable fit. If
you are not yet familiar with this glove, check out the listing for the 2068’s.
You’re going to think the price is a typo.
These next few pairs of gloves are the favorites of some of our more aggressive
riders. Whether it’s speed, or adverse riding conditions that get their blood
pumping, these guys and gals are in need of gloves with a little something
For the street sport rider, our customers love the Joe Rocket Sonic Gloves.
These gloves have a high level of protection that comes from the reinforced
knuckles, padded fingers and gauntlet, and the all leather construction with
reinforced areas on the palms and thumb. They have the aggressive look of a race
glove, but with less bulk, making them perfect for the streets. The dual strap
on the gauntlet provides rider and gear specific adjustability, and the low
price is no doubt a big factor in their popularity.
This next glove is definitely not a price point glove. This is a glove for the
rider looking for the best. This is an ultra-premium, top of the line offering
from Alpinestars, the GP Pro Race Glove. This customer is in need of the most
protection that a pair of gloves can possibly offer, to ensure that he or she
stays as competitive as possible on the racetrack. These GP Pros feature an all
leather construction with a full kangaroo palm, thermoplastic urethane knuckle
and hand protection, a bridged pinky and ring finger, and a full Kevlar
reinforced liner. For added comfort, the seams on the palm side fingers are on
the exterior, and the thumb has an accordion style stretch panel for mobility.
Lastly we have the favorite of the inclement weather riding elite, the Venture
Heat Epic 2.0 Battery Heated Gloves. These are top of the line heated gloves
that are designed to heat your hands in the nastiest riding conditions, using
the included 7.4 volt battery packs. After a full charge of the batteries, you
can install them into the gloves by simply plugging them in and sliding them
into their pockets on the gloves. This is one of my favorite battery designs
because connecting two slim cells together side by side allows this now flexible
battery pack to lay nice and flat against your wrist. The heat level is
controlled with this button on the back of the hand. Green is warm, yellow is
warmer, and red is molten lava hot. I use the high setting to warm the gloves
initially, then turn them down to yellow once they get to temp. These are
primarily a textile glove, but they do have reinforced leather palms. They also
feature these patches on the index finger and thumb that are able to manipulate
a capacitive type touch screen on a phone or tablet. My personal favorite
feature of the Epic 2.0’s is their availability. We have them in stock, you see.
Many of the heated glove models of other brands are very difficult to find after
the New Year, and they don’t become available again until late October.
