Women motorcycle riders need gear and apparel made specifically for them. Motorcycle gloves are no exception.

Here are the inside tips on how to find the perfect motorcycle glove to fit your hands, and your riding needs.

Women's Motorcycle Gloves: The Right Fit for Smaller Hands

Here's the key: gloves need to fit just right. 

We know some women will try to get by with a men's size small glove ... and some women can.

But the scale and proportion of a woman's hand truly is different.  We design gloves specifically for women -- not only to make them feminine from a style perspective -- but to make them fit.

Truth is, fit complaints are the #1 concern of riders of BOTH sexes. 

We suggest that you purchase gloves specifically designed to fit a woman's hand, not scaled down versions of a mans gloves.

Want to know why?  Read on.
