Mechanix Wear – Specialty Vent Glove – beat the heat!
Summer is here and when the heat is on – the gloves
come off to catch a breeze. The Specialty Vent glove provides working hands with
evaporative cooling on those sauna-like workdays with its fully ventilated design. The
durable synthetic leather palm is fully perforated and the breathable mesh back-of-hand
circulates air throughout the entire glove keeping your hands cool while you work.
The Specialty Vent glove was developed with professional Supercross & NASCAR
mechanics to provide better breathability when working in the pits under hot and humid
conditions. In addition to full ventilation, the glove features a low-profile top-closure to
improve wrist mobility when turning wrenches, and a convenient micro-fleece thumb
panel to wipe away perspiration.
“The sweltering heat during outdoor national races can be challenging for mechanics as
they tune bikes between motos. Last summer our Pro-Circuit mechanics asked if we could
improve the ventilation of our existing Vent glove, and incorporate the slim-fit design of
our high-dexterity Original® 0.5mm glove into a new model. The result…the Specialty Vent
glove,” says Ted Abdon, Mechanix Wear’s Director of Racing.
Monster Energy Pro-Circuit Kawasaki mechanic, Oliver Stone, has worked closely with
Mechanix Wear on developing the Specialty Vent glove over the past year. “The lightweight,
slim-fit design and high-dexterity palm allows us to pick up the smallest items while giving
you the protection and cooling required during the hottest outdoor national races. Hands
down my favorite glove.”
