7. Roadgear CarbonMaxxx $69.90


Roadgear started its existence as a glove retailer, and its gloves still feature the same quality and reasonable price that helped establish the company as one that delivers high-value products for motorcyclists. The CarbonMaxxx is a full-featured, well-built glove that Dad will appreciate as we roll into the heat of summer. Constructed of cowhide, the pre-curved CarbonMaxxx gloves feature double layers of leather on the palm and other abrasion-prone areas. The back of the gloves are perforated to flow cooling air to the rider’s hands. Impact protection is provided by carbon-fiber knuckle armor. Additionally, finger backs receive a combination of dual leather layers with foam padding between the layers plus plastic knuckle protectors that act as wind scoops, directing air into the glove.

CarbonMaxxx gloves are short, without a gauntlet, meaning they allow air to flow up jacket sleeves. A wrist closure will keep the gloves in place in a tumble. These XS-XXXL black gloves fit with almost any style of motorcycle, offering timeless styling with high-tech protection that Dad will appreciate throughout the hottest riding days of summer.
