PROTECTION YOUR HANDS ARE PRECIOUS
The hand is the most complex part of the human body – and also the hardest to protect. The hand contains the highest number of bones, joints, ligaments, and nerve endings in such a limited space. If you try not using your hand, even just for an hour, you soon realize how important it is in daily life. A hand injury can prove to be a serious disadvantage in motorbiking, including professionally. Would you be able to continue your activity with an injured, immobilized hand?
In biking, the hand is the most exposed member in the event of a fall. Our reflexes make us instinctively place our hands between us and any obstacle that comes along. We often put out a hand to save ourselves and soften the impact when we hit the ground. And even at low speeds, tarmac is rarely a welcoming surface.
When we are developing gloves, we take account of the specific characteristics of the hand — a member that is at one and the same time complex, fragile, and exposed. The degree of protection they offer proves systematically superior to the average for other commercially-available products. When you look at a FIVE glove, you will appreciate that each protective element, each material is positioned in strategic places so as to offer optimum protection.
Each component that goes into the composition of a FIVE glove, each model is subjected to laboratory tests (all our gloves are CE approved) and above all trials by a panel of users and riders, some of them particularly experienced in terms of non-simulated falls… Protection, fit, design — on all these levels, they are all contributing to the evolution of FIVE gloves. Among them are our official riders. All of these have chosen to wear FIVE gloves as they don’t neglect a single detail, aim for performance, and want only the best. Logically, all of them place their trust in the glove specialist! They know that a glove with a perfect fit can help them gain precious seconds on a lap. They know that a perfectly-fitting glove can avoid the appearance of painful blisters that can be a handicap over a race. They know a protective glove can help them avoid injury and long weeks of convalescence, which can spell the loss of a title. Whatever their discipline (Speed, Supermoto, Enduro, Motocross, etc.), they know that a FIVE glove constitutes a psychological advantage over their adversaries… Our riders sometimes have to tussle with their equipment-manufacturer sponsors (who often produce their own gloves) to get their choice allowed — already the sign of the character of a champion.
One thing is certain, our riders never choose FIVE for the money: we don’t offer them any! But we do sometimes reward them for a title or some glorious feat… most often with a pair of customized gloves and a meal out in a top restaurant! Oh yes, at FIVE, professionalism always goes hand in hand with having a good time.
