Safety is paramount even during your daily commute. Keeping this in mind we have designed the Holeshot to offer comfort along with protection even during your day-to-day commute. Holeshot offers high airflow through the 3D air mesh panel on the back of your hand and between the fingers yet provides maximum protection by incorporating perforated goatskin leather on the palm. In addition, we have integrated KNOX SPS sliders as well on the palm to prevent Scaphoid injuries caused by the grab effect when the palm comes in contact with the road in case of a fall.

Things to remember

  • 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.
  • If you have never used gloves with a pinky bridge you may find it odd or uncomfortable. Give it a few days of riding and you will get used to it. Remember, any protective gear is relatively uncomfortable to wear compared to riding without any protection.
  • You may find the Knox SPS on the palm to be uncomfortable in 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. These devices are incorporated in the gloves is to ensure you are well protected when you most need it.
  • 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, primary area of fitment should always be the palm area, even if you are to be left with some extra room near your fingertips.
  • We have used high density TPU to maximise protection and longevity. While we have added an additional foam layer underneath the TPU, they may feel a bit too hard at the beginning. Thinner and more flexible knuckle protectors are not very effective during a crash and do not last long either.

Care instructions

Our gloves use full grain goat leather that is naturally water resistant. This means that the gloves do not get ruined if they get wet in rains. 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 moisturise 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.

  • If your gloves get wet, dry the gloves by pressing softly with an absorbent towel.
  • If there are stains, clean the gloves by hand with a pH neutral leather cleaner using a damp cloth or a soft bristled brush. DO NOT USE HOT WATER
  • DO NOT allow your gloves to come in contact with solvents (do not use fabric softener!), fuel or cleaning agents.
  • Do not use a washing machine or high pressure devices to clean the gloves, as high temperature and pressure will damage the leather.
  • Do not place your gloves near, or let your gloves get into contact with a direct heat source - this will harden the leather and lead to damage. Also dry the gloves indoors away from direct sunlight where there is good ventilation.
  • 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. 
  • 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 micro fibers will move freely in the leather. Use a good quality leather conditioner that will allow the leather to breathe. Apply conditioner generously and rub into the leather. Allow the conditioner to soak into the gloves and reapply (you can do this in the sun). Wipe off any excess conditioner and make sure the gloves are not slick on the motorcycle controls.
  • Make sure that your gloves are completely dry before you store them. 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.

    This is my first ever gloves I’m purchasing, so I do alot of research on deciding the material used, all kinds of safety measures, quality of stitching, fit and finish.

    I was little skeptical on the size which i need to buy, since this is my first gloves. But seems to be the gloves came to be the right fit for me.

    It is stiff at the palm at the beginning, which will wear out and fit perfectly to my hands in mean time. Goatskin leather is the best quality leather for the gloves. It’s very breathable, comfortable to wear, and it works well when using my mobile with the gloves.

    It’s the newest product in the market and the quality is top notch!

    Great product ViaTerra, looking forward for more products in future. 🙂

    Both the gloves that are available from Viaterra are really good. I would say best in the market at this price range. I have searched a lot for good quality gloves in 5k range and the only one I though of buying was Rynox Apex Evo. But I would say the full gauntlet available from Viaterra is superior to Apex Evo in material quality and craftsmanship.

    Thank You Viattera!!

    This is my second set of gloves from Viaterra. I have used Viaterra Grid full gaunlet gloves for 1.5 months and over 2000 kms of riding, and I was very impressed with the design and comfort.

    I have aspida gloves for city commute but they are old now and I thought the 3D mesh should be an interesting feature to experience on the holeshot gloves, hence I purchased them.

    My thoughts on it Holeshot gloves –

    1. The 3D mesh works well. Despite having leather, the presence of 3D mesh offsets most of the sweating that may occur.

    2. These are the only daily commute/city gloves in the entire Indian market that have the following features –

    a. best in class knox scaphoid bone protectors.

    b. touch screen inserts on both Left and Right hand glove (all city commute gloves, in this price range, have touch screen inserts on only left hand(Royal Enfield gloves). Some gloves, like Aspida brand, do not even have offer it. Such a shame.

    c. nice blend of soft, plush leather and mesh. Very well executed design and stitching.

    Few pointers for buyers :

    1. How to decide on the size of gloves –

    Measure both your hands as shown in Viaterra chart. Most of the times, one hand turns out to be bigger than the other. Take the bigger measurement for choosing the gloves.

    If your hand size according to Viaterra chart is “M”, order “L” sized gloves.

    In most cases, one size up is always comfortable. Especially if you are buying gloves for the first time or you are new to wearing gloves. If you feel the size is too big and the gloves come out easily, then you can exchange for smaller size.

    My advice would be to get the bigger size first and then go for exchange if the fit is not ok.

    2. Please keep in mind that the gloves can feel a little tight if you are used to riding without gloves or with gloves of other material. But gloves will get comfortable after first few 100 kilometers. Do a proper “break-in” and these gloves will last a really long time.

    3. How to do a proper break-in for the gloves

    Do not go on long rides with new gloves immediately after purchase. New gloves need a proper “break-in”, just like new engine. Wear the gloves for 1~2 hours every day for at least a month. If you cannot ride for 1~2 hours, you can wear the gloves at home and move your fingers, close your first etc.

    4. Lastly, follow the leather care instructions given by Viaterra on this webpage. Leather gloves will last really long if cared well.

    Bottom-line :

    Best city gloves that your hard earned money can buy you, in India. Simply go for it! You will love it.

    Hoping to see Viaterra venture into making hard parts like tail racks and top boxes.
