Kushitani Race GPR6 Leather Gloves
Next generation of Kushitani racing gloves.
Reinforced Zylon covering ring and pinky finger
Full gauntlet wrist protection
Pre stretched and formed Kangaroo leather palm
We at Kushitani are proud to anonounce the next generation of motorcycle leather gloves to the public, the GPR6 gloves. For many years we have taken our experience from the race track to the street and designed gloves for maximum protection and comfort. The new line of Kushitani motorcycle racing leather gloves, the GPR6, is built by mimicking the structure of our hands and its complex physical makeup. The ligaments, muscle groups and bone structure in our hands are in fact reflected in the different layers of protection, leather and sections of the GPR6 gloves. The GPR6 racing leather gloves have the ability to perfectly follow every contracting and expanding movement of the hand when in motion. The GPR6 flexes both in length and in width conforming perfectly to your hand. The Kushitani GPR 6 glove perfect fit is also achieved by adding stretch panels at the highest stressed point, the side of the glove.
The GPR 6 is constructed in both cowhide and kangaroo, cowhide at the top of the hand for durability and kangaroo on the palm for maximum feel on the grip.
The GPR6 armor has also been improved this year by applying 5 layers of protection to the glove starting with Zylon lace inside the glove, to 2 layers of K-Foam, and a new gel pad for the knuckles. We also have redesigned the Zylon protection on the ring finger and the pinky to have more freedom of movement.
In line with Kushitani GPR gloves’ tradition, the technology behind the new GPR6 racing leather glove makes it possibly the best motorcycle glove we have ever made.
The Kushitani GPR6 are going to be introduced in the US market before summertime and will be available for purchase shortly on the online store or at the BMW dealer closest to you.
Kushitani Leather Gloves are made of the following materials:
K-Foam is a shock absorbent material developed by Kushitani, which is made by special acrylic emulsion. It has memory, which gives 100% restoration, is durable and molds to your body shape through the natural body temperature. The shock absorbing foam is built into vital body sections of the Kushitani motorcycle suits, gloves and other products.
Kushitani Leather-all of our racing suits are model from Holstein leather which comes from cows bred in Japan specifically for kushitani. That's how we get the leather so smooth and supple yet EXTREMELY strong. All the" bad section" of the hide are out off and only the best parts are used to make all Kushitani motorcycle products, In fact only about 60% of hide is used to from 1 1/2 Japanese cows
ZYLON has excellent performance, in such properties as creep, chemical resistance, cut/abrasion resistance, and high temperature abrasion resistance, which far exceed all other fibers. It is 5 times stronger than carbon fiber, and 7 times stronger than Kevlar.
Punched mesh-Kushitani suits are punched mesh for maximum airflow and minimum body exhaustion. Punched mesh and punched mesh shirring are also a Kushitani patent.(Pat:1810469 and 1810470) It has secured safe ease of movement, comfortable and gives great ventilation. The debut of Kushitani's punched mesh suits were at the grueling SUZUKA 8 HOUR endurance race in Japan.
