Vegan Motorcycle Glove Guide

Kale Seitan Motorcycle Club Vegan Riders!

I spent a lot of time researching options for vegan motorcycle gloves and figured I'd share my findings with you in hopes to make your shopping experience easier. I found that only THREE brands of motorcycle gloves actually markets some of their products as vegan - Corazzo, Andromeda, and Straight to Hell. Beyond these brands, I've also provided links and information for other gloves that are also made from vegan materials. 

Corazzo is not a 100% vegan company, but several of their products like jackets, hats, and gloves are PETA-approved and can be ordered from Piston Ported

Andromeda is a 100% vegan company! Based in Spain, Andromeda offers boots, gloves, jackets, and my sources tell me they have some new products launching really soon.

Straight to Hell is more of an apparel company than a riding gear company, however, they make the most durable vegan leather I have found and offer very punk-looking vegan leather jackets and gloves.

Corazzo - Bolla Vegan Motorcycle Gloves

Corazzo claims that this is the best fitting motorcycle and scooter riding glove to date and offers a new level of protection for those who want to ride. The knuckle impact protector is sandwiched between 2 layers of textile to insure a comfortable fit without digging into your hand. The highly abrasion resistant and reinforced impact zones on the palms and sides are there in case of a slide while the venting around the grip is there to keep your hands cool during a hot summer day. They incorporated thumb and forefinger touch screen finger tips and added grip strips to the middle and ring fingers for brake and clutch lever use.  The neoprene cuffs feature Velcro closures for a tailored fit while the 3M Scotchlite reflective strips across the back increase nighttime visibility when using hand signals.

The Corazzo Urbano Glove is the glove for people who do not want to wear gloves, but know it is the right thing to do anyway. A very low profile design, this glove is perfect for the casual scooterist, or putting around town on your motorcycle. An abrasion resistant palm, excellent breathability and a conservative style make this glove perfect for the right situation.

Aside from Corazzo, Andromeda, and Straight to Hell, your other vegan-friendly options require you to click each glove one-by-one and examine the descriptions to determine whether or not they are made with animal skin. That being said, all the options below appear to be vegan to the best of my research.

Olympia 760 Men's Air Force Gel Gloves

This glove is a great all-around glove for the sport, street and touring rider. Its mesh backing provides airflow and allows sweat to be wicked away, evaporating from the material quickly and leaving the rider’s hands dry.

The ribbed nylon knuckles are great for flexibility and protection. A gel palm reduces vibration and hand fatigue, and in the hot summer months, terry cloth on the back of the thumb even wipes sweat from your brow!
