What touchscreen devices or apps are essential while on the road?

How many times have you been riding, and pulled over to consult your GPS?  Or perhaps there's a weather or traffic app on your iphone that you needed to check.

More and more, we rely on our touchscreen devices, and touchscreen gloves are a great option for tapping, swiping and scrolling.

They keep hands comfortable and protected, and make these devices easier to use on the road.

Next Generation Touch Screen Gloves for Motorcycle Riders

While touchscreen motorcycle gloves have been around for a while, the latest generation of touchscreen gloves are more useful than ever.

Updated technology includes:

  • Touch screen leather fingertips on the index finger and thumb, using nano-technology enabled leather
 These conductive fingertips allow you to simulatenouly tap or swipe your android or iphone with  thumb and index finger.
  • Gloves with conductive leather fingertips, with nanotechnology enabled leather, means that there are no seams, lumps or bumps at the fingertips ... which enhances comfort in use with all your digital devices.

Introducing 2 New Touch Screen Gloves

If your last season's lighter spring gloves aren't road worthy, check out these 2 new touch screen styles:

The Roper men's style has long been a rider favorite, and is as handsome as ever.

The new women's style, which we call The Rose has the same great performance features.

These new styles have the following updated digital performance features and lots of other great comfort features:

  • supple "touch screen enabled" glove leather 

  • a brushed tricot lining (wicks moisture and adds a bit of warmth)

  • curved finger construction for optimal rider comfort

  • a digital palm for advanced grip

  • Adjustable velcro strap for secure fit

  • Reinforced stiching to hold up to the road, mile after mile.

NEW Touch Screen Motorcycle Gloves: Review

The picture (above) really doesn't do these gloves justice ... pictures rarely convey how soft or comfortable they'll feel on your hands.

Read what loyal Olympia consumer, Al G. had to say about our traditional Roper (before the touch screen enhanced tips were added):

The newest model has that same great fit and comfort, and now has been enhanced for use with touchscreen phones and other digital devices.  Hopefully Al would approve!

To learn about these or any other gloes, see below: visit a local dealer or our online store. --  we make over 70 styles of gloves, many with free shipping.

Ride safe!
