Details

The Held Phantom is one of Held's top of the range race gloves. Their meticulous attention to detail is clear to see all throughout this glove and they have created something perfect for both track days or extra safe road riding.

The glove is made from a combination of stingray, kangaroo, leather, Kevlar and carbon meaning that this is one of the toughest gloves available from any manufacturer in the market.

What's so good about stingray leather?

Well apart from getting one back for the fans of Steve Irwin stingray leather happens to be the most abrasion resistant leather available. Perhaps as a side effect or maybe as a consequence of millions of years of evolution this makes it a perfect material for motorcycle gloves.

Its exceptional strength actually serves two purposes- It will serve you well should the worst ever happen and you find yourself sliding along the asphalt, and also its sheer abrasion resistance also means thinner panels of material can be used which keeps weight and bulkiness down and helps you feel the controls better.

The key use of the stingray leather in this glove is in the ball of the thumb. As many will remember from childhood falls, and possibly even more recently if you're unlucky, this is the area which takes the brunt of grazing in any fall. Held have used SUPROTECT© foam cushioning to help absorb any energy and coated this with the donated skin from our stingray friends.

Why kangaroo leather?

Kangaroo leather is cheaper than stingray leather so this is used to make up the bulk of the Titan glove in the less exposed areas. As you can see from the little table above these trusty 'roos are still considerably more hardy than those cows and there is also the added benefit that this toughness allows it to be kept very thin and so it gives you an amazing bulk-free feel of your bike's throttle and brakes almost as if you weren't wearing gloves.
