SAS Tec CE Level 2 rated Knuckle protection
The SAS Tec CE Level 2 rated Viscoelastic knuckle armour provides best in class impact protection for the Kruger gloves while keeping the comfort level high due to excellent damping characteristics.
The knuckle protectors are made of viscoelastic soft foam for excellent adaption onto the knuckles and come with different shapes for the left and right hand to guarantee a perfect fitting.
Best in class SuperFabric abrasion protection
- Protection on the palms is provided by the SuperFabric/HD EVA combination. Superfabric is world renowned for its superlative abrasion and pierce resistance.
- The reason we chose this instead of the harder palm sliders is to reduce the bulk on the palm and retain feedback from the bars.
- The sides of the pinky finger as well as the gauntlet also have SuperFabric/HD EVA inserts for added slide protection.
Finger impact protection
To ensure that your fingers are protected against impacts, we've incorporated soft, flexible PVC protectors into the design. These protectors are strategically placed on each finger, allowing for greater flexibility and range of motion while still providing impact protection.
Superior Grip and tactile feedback
The Kruger gloves are designed to provide excellent grip and control while touring. To achieve this, we've strategically positioned silicone accents on the palm of the gloves. These accents greatly improve your grip and feedback from the levers and throttle, which is critical while touring. With improved grip and control, you'll be able to ride with greater precision and confidence. Whether you're navigating tight turns or cruising down the highway, the silicone accents on the palm will provide a secure and comfortable grip, ensuring that you're always in control.
Excellent Ventilation & Breathability
We've used heavy-duty 3D air mesh in the construction of these gloves to ensure maximum airflow and breathability. This high-quality mesh material allows for air to circulate freely, which helps to keep your hands cool and dry, even in the hottest and most humid weather conditions. With superior airflow and breathability, you can ride with greater comfort and ease, without having to worry about your hands getting sweaty or uncomfortable.
A visor wiper for the rainy rides
We've incorporated a soft viper on the left hand of the gloves to help clean the helmet visor in rainy conditions. This allows you to easily wipe away raindrops and other debris from your visor, ensuring that you always have a clear view of the road ahead, even in rainy conditions.
Phone Friendly for both hands!
The Kruger has special conductive leather panels strategically placed on the index finger and thumb tips of both hands - 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.
External seams on the fingers
We've incorporated external stitching on the finger seams of the gloves, which helps to eliminate irritation and discomfort during extended periods of riding. With this design, the stitching is positioned on the outside of the glove, which ensures that it won't rub or irritate your skin, even during long rides. This feature is particularly important for riders who spend hours on the saddle, as it helps to prevent chafing and discomfort on the fingers.
Dual Velcro closure with wrist accordion
The Kruger has an accordion design on the wrist closure, which allows for a snug fit around your wrist. This feature ensures that the gloves fit securely on your hand, providing maximum comfort and protection while you ride.
In addition, the Kruger gloves also feature a dual closure system at the wrist and the gauntlet. This feature allows you to wear the gloves over your jacket or under the jacket cuff, depending on your preference.
It also ensures a stronger hold, which helps to prevent slippage during a crash. With this design, the gloves remain securely in place, even during high-impact situations.
Whether you prefer to wear your gloves over or under your jacket, the Kruger gloves provide the functionality and versatility that you need to ride with confidence and comfort.
Extra visibility with 3M reflective piping
The Kruger has subtle 3M reflective piping on the base of the middle & ring fingers for added night visibility.
Full gauntlet construction
The full gauntlet construction of the Kruger offers a longer protection area over the jacket and allows you to properly tuck it inside the riding jacket.
- Durable Materials: The Kruger uses goat skin leather that is durable, light and naturally water resistant. The thickness of the leather is kept high for enhanced abrasion resistance.
- CE Rated Level 2 Protection: The Kruger comes equipped with premium, top-of-the-line CE Level 2 rated Sas-Tec knuckle protectors.
- The palms, wrist and side of the pinky finger come with SuperFabric™ EVA reinforced panels to offer significant impact protection while also allowing more flexibility and dexterity for the rider
- Designed for Indian weather: We use heavy duty 3D mesh on the upper part of the gloves for superior ventilation with perforated leather on the lower part. This allows sweat to evaporate quickly making your rides during hot weather more comfortable!
STEP 1 - Measure your hand using a tailor's measuring tape
There are two key measurements that you need to take into consideration for figuring out your glove size.
- Circumference - Wrap the tape measure around your palm at its widest point and lightly close your hand before taking the measurement.
- Length - Measure from the tip of the middle finger to the base of your palm at your wrist.
STEP 2 - Find your glove size by checking hand measurements against the chart provided
- If both the measurements do not fall in one particular size - use the larger of the two measures to choose the glove size.
- If the two measurements are on the border line between two sizes, try both the sizes and choose the one that offers a better fit.
STEP 1 - Confirm that the gloves are a comfortable fit. They should not be excessively tight on any finger (especially the thumb) & knuckles. To check this, try the gloves on and form a fist several times and verify if:
- Adequate room for all fingers (specially thumb) to move and operate controls comfortably.
- Check the fitment on both hands since your left and right hand sizes do vary.
While leather gloves do take some time to break in, ensure that the fit on first try is not so tight as to cause discomfort and/or restrict movement.
STEP 2 - Ensure the knuckle protectors are properly positioned. The way to check this is:
- Roll your hand into a tight fist and hold the position for 5-10 minutes. This position should be easy to hold without causing any discomfort or causing any stress points.
- Ensure that the edge of the knuckle protector is not over the knuckle when the fist is formed.
A few things to keep in mind when you start using the Kruger full gauntlet touring gloves -
- Putting on and taking off may be slightly difficult, because the wrist area is narrowed down for safety reasons. This is done to prevent the gloves from coming off your hands during a crash and to offer a snug fit.
- Remember, any protective gear is relatively uncomfortable to wear compared to riding without any protection. You may find the SuperFabric on the palm to be uncomfortable on the first try. But just like any protective gear, over a period of time, you will get used to it so you do not even notice it.
- We have used Sas-Tec knuckle protectors to maximise impact attenuation. In very cold weather, these might feel a bit hard, but don't worry as they become soft & comfortable once you have worn them for a few minutes.
- In our research, we found that the palm size and the finger length are not in the same proportion for everyone (that makes each of us unique in the truest sense!). In such cases, the primary area of fitment should always be the palm area, even if you are to be left with some extra room near your fingertips.
- Fit and comfort are subjective matters and will vary from person to person. We recommend that you follow the instructions on "How to measure size & check glove fit" before finalising the purchase.
- Do not let the hard velcro come in contact with the mesh fabric of the gloves to avoid linting/ fraying.

Our gloves use full-grain goat leather that is naturally water-resistant. However, when leather gets wet, the oils get stripped from the leather – this will stiffen the leather and eventually cause it to crack. Think of it as your skin after taking a bath – you need to moisturize to replace the natural oils in your skin removed by the water. So, what matters for your gloves is what you do after it gets wet. Here is a step by step process to keep your glove well cared for and last longer.
- Microfiber/ soft cloth
- Small bowl or mixing cup
- Absorbent towels
- Soft-bristled brush
- pH neutral leather cleaner
- Leather conditioner
- Lukewarm water
How to clean riding gloves?
1. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix a portion of leather cleaner in lukewarm water.
2. Dampen a microfiber cloth with the mixture and gently wipe the stained areas. If the gloves have mud splatters, allow the mud to dry before attempting to clean it away. Use a soft-bristled brush to brush it away before cleaning with cloth.
3. Clean the gloves starting at the wrist and working toward each fingertip. Be sure to clean well between each finger. Keep moving to a clean area of the cloth as the dirt is transferred. 4. Rinse the cloth often as the dirt is transferred. Turn the gloves over and repeat on the other side.
4. DO NOT USE HOT WATER
5. DO NOT allow your gloves to come in contact with solvents (do not use fabric softener!), fuel, or cleaning agents.
6. DO NOT use any kind of CHEMICAL or scrub the leather
7. Do not use a washing machine or high-pressure devices to clean the gloves, as high temperatures and pressure will damage the leather.
How to dry wet gloves?
1. Dry the gloves by pressing softly with an absorbent towel after cleaning. You can also do this when your gloves get wet in the rain.
2. Allow damp gloves to dry slowly, as this will prevent the leather from stiffening and cracking.
3. Never dry wet gloves with a blow-dryer or put them on a radiator or direct sunlight or other heat source to dry – this will harden the leather and lead to damage. Also dry the gloves indoors away from direct sunlight where there is good ventilation.
4. While your gloves are drying, periodically put them on your hands to stretch the leather and ensure they don't shrink.
5. Just before the gloves are completely dry, put the gloves on and shape them to your hand while still damp. Remove the gloves gently, trying to retain this shape in the gloves and allow it to continue drying.
How to condition gloves?
After the gloves are completely dry, apply a good quality leather conditioner. This is very important. Properly treated and conditioned (oiled) leather will breathe and the internal microfibers will move freely in the leather.
1. Use a good quality leather conditioner that will allow the leather to breathe.
2. Apply conditioner and rub it into the leather.
3. Allow the conditioner to soak into the gloves and reapply (if needed).
4. Wipe off any excess conditioner and make sure the gloves are not slick on the motorcycle controls.
How to store riding gloves?
When gloves are stored wet or in a non-ventilated area, this may cause deformations and ruin your gloves, not to mention this allows mildew to grow on the leather causing discoloration and damage.
1. Make sure that your gloves are completely dry before you store them.
2. Place them in a breathable cotton bag to protect them from dust but with enough air circulation to prevent mildew from forming.
3. Store them in a cool, dry, well ventilated area
