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 Shifter design as scaphoid protection can be ensured only if the placement is correct.
Impact Protection for Wrist & fingers
PVC protectors and memory foam padding provide impact protection on the fingers and the wrist.
Goatskin Leather for enhanced abrasion protection
The Shifter 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 Shifter allow maximum airflow - a boon for the Indian climate.
Optimum Comfort & stretch with accordion
The Shifter comes with floating Knuckle protectors and a stretch 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.
Wrist velcro closure with lycra gusset
The wrist closure is designed to get a snug closure. This ensures a stronger hold around the wrist to avoid slippage during crash
Silicone SuperGrip for smooth throttle operation
The Shifter 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.
Touchscreen friendly for BOTH hands!
The Shifter 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 Shifter helps clean the helmet visor in rainy conditions.
Being the shorter version of the Grid the only thing that’s a big miss is the pinky finger protection. I bought the shifter expecting it have the protection for the pinky finger which was a disappointment at this price tag. Else I am happy with the quality and comfort.
Good product, comfort is amazing grip on palm is soo stickey.
Visor viper feature is unique.
It's always not about a product. Expected brand value existed to even try this... Lack of listening and customer care. Unethical and no transparency in services. Waste of time and feedback.
