Superior Impact Protection for Knuckles
The Knuckle protector comes with a dual-layer on the outside of the knuckle to absorb impact better.
To increase comfort, there are two layers of foam: one under the knuckle guard and the second layer that covers the back of the hand.
We have also configured the knuckle protectors in 2 sizes for better fit & coverage across a wide range of hand sizes.
Palm protection with Full Wrap Knox SPS 404
Scaphoid injury is the most common hand injury in motorcycle accidents caused by the grab effect when the palm makes contact with the ground.
The dual compound, full wrap SPS 404 is made from a layer of Knox's latest Micro-lock armour on the inside and abrasion-resistant LDPE on the outside.
SPS position has been approved by Knox headquarters, London for the Grid design as scaphoid protection can be ensured only if the placement is correct.
Impact Protection for Wrist & fingers
Dual Density hard TPU protectors are used to absorb impact on wrist.
The fingers on the gloves have PVC protectors and memory foam padding for impact protection.
Pinky finger bridge for roll protection
During a crash, your pinky finger can encounter finger roll, causing a very painful injury.
The ring and pinky fingers are stitched together in the Grid to prevent finger roll during a crash.
Goatskin Leather for enhanced abrasion protection
The Grid uses goatskin leather that is durable, light and naturally water-resistant. It is the most comfortable leather to use in gloves due to its suppleness.
We kept the thickness of the leather to the highest level possible (1.2 to 1.5mm) to ensure enhanced abrasion resistance.
Excellent Ventilation & Breathability
Strategically placed air inlets on the top of the fingers and perforated leather used throughout the Grid allow maximum airflow - a boon for the Indian climate.
Optimum Comfort & stretch
Grid comes with floating Knuckle protectors and an accordion panel underneath to allow the knuckle to float giving you room for movement when operating the clutch and brake.
Similarly, large accordion panels have been integrated on all the fingers and thumbs to allow free movement while operating levers.
Dual velcro closure with wrist accordion
Accordion on the wrist closure allows you to get a snug closure whether you are wearing over the jacket or under the jacket cuff. This also ensures complete contact of the male and female velcro patch for a stronger hold around the wrist to avoid slippage during crash
SuperGrip for smooth throttle operation
The Grid has an engineered super grip silicone panel attached at the purlicue (the area between forefinger and thumb), offering a much superior grip on the bars.
Having a grippier palm allows you to hold the bars lightly while ensuring you can operate the throttle smoothly.
The Grid has special conductive leather panels strategically placed on both hands' index finger and thumb tips - so you can operate your smartphone during quick breaks/ stops without removing the gloves!
This leather has properties that mimic a conductive path and enable easy operation of touch-sensitive electronic devices.
A visor wiper for the rainy rides
Strategically placed soft viper on the left hand of the Grid helps clean the helmet visor in rainy conditions.
Viaterra Grid gloves are exceptional in their segment, offering great comfort and impressive quality. Ideal for long rides, these gloves provide a satisfying combination of comfort and durability.
This gloves stand out not only for their excellent comfort and quality but also for the outstanding safety they provide. These gloves offer a commendable level of protection, making them a reliable choice for riders seeking both comfort and safety on their journeys.
In terms of protection at this price point, there's simply no competition whatsoever. In fact, I would go so far as to say that the gloves hold their own against any gloves under the 10,000 Rs Mark. No issues with the quality of materials and finish as well. There are just a couple of improvements I would want. Firstly, the comfort could be improved by using softer material to pad the interiors of the gloves. This would help significantly with comfort during the break-in process. Secondly, the gloves are stitched in such a way that it is a little too precise with the finger measurements of an ideal hand. Everyone's hands will have variations; I discovered on trying this glove that there are a few Millimetres of difference between my left and right palm in terms of both length and width, apparent at the area where the fingers join the palm. Because of this, the gloves felt weird the first few times I used them, but now are much better. Having just a little excess leather on the joint areas will make it a comfortable fit right from the get-go. Overall though, I'm very happy with my purchase.
I have Purchased & Used this Gloves for My Muktinath Trip from 30/10/23 to 06/11/23(Nepal)
Just used for 8 day's and Stitches are frmoving and Lather skin peeling and gloves are vary uncomfortable for iner hard part, contunue can't use for 2 hour's.
And after that the problame Customer support not Vary Good

These gloves are what you need of you are looking for something best in the market with classy looks & safety. The gloves are little hard to fit in for 4-6 days and once that period is complete they are very comfortable.
I have some points to share from my experience with these gloves while riding. (I ride a RE Classic 350)
1. The gloves will be a little tight at the beginning but eventually within a week they will feel better.
2. If you are new with the riding gloves than initially it might feel that there is something wrong with the Clutch while changing the gears with the gloves, but don't worry it is just a mere misconception of one's mind. Once the gloves get adjusted to the hands everything goes smoothly.
3. The safety of these gloves are at par and best in this price range.
4. The gloves can be worn for either city ride or long tours, but don't just go for long ride while trying the gloves for the first time do some city rides and let the gloves be synchronised with everything first.
5. Choose the gloves according to the size chart and don't casually place the order by just merely lookin the hand and thinking that this particular size will fit me (I have one set of Royal Enfield gloves also and they are of XL size but these viaterra gloves I ordered were of L size and both the sizes fits my hand perfectly). So basically every company has different measuring perspective so order accordingly.
The gloves are very comfortable and also very durable. The protection is very good it has everything one can ask from a Riding Gloves.
