Unless they’re overconfident, if many downhill riders have skimped on protection, including in extreme conditions, it’s probably because they weren’t satisfied with the equipment available thus far. With our extensive experience at the very highest levels in motocross and speed Grand Prix, FIVE has developed an ultra-protective glove that offers the ultimate in wearing comfort. This glove will satisfy downhill riders who need extreme steering precision, without sacrificing safety.
At first glance, what makes the DH unique are the ventilated Polyurethane shells that are directly inspired by our motorcycle racing gloves. Placed under the FIVE logo in 3 mm Sonic TPR, these two shells protect the joints, and mini PU shells are placed on the first phalanges, with high-density foam padding protecting the last ones. The top structure is made of wide 3D cell mesh, for optimal airflow. The outer fingers, which are more exposed, are covered in perforated full-grain kidskin leather. The end of the middle and index fingers in Spandex allows greater mobility of the most-used fingers. The finger contours combine Lycra for the outer fingers and ventilated Mesh for the inner fingers. When riding downhill, the outer part of the hand is particularly exposed. Trees and rocks are elements that the hand may come in contact with. That’s why we’ve made the side of the hand in full-grain kidskin with a wide Stretch Kevlar panel that includes a Soft PU protective shell, all sewn together with Kevlar stitching for high tensile strength. The end of the radius features 2 mm gel padding placed within a 2 mm Airprene band, providing excellent wrist support. The Soft TPR and Velcro adjustment tab allows for ultra-precise adjustment, and a pull tab makes it easy to put on. The palm of the DH in AX Suede synthetic leather with a silicone print provides ideal grip and flexibility on par with the very finest gloves. The thumb covered with Micro Wipe fabric allows you to easily wipe off your forehead after a steep descent. And finally, you can easily activate your GoPro using your smartphone, using the conductive wires in the thumb and index fingers. The DH protects you with total freedom, from the first to the last second of your descent.
