Knox's Orsa OR3 Glove is a short length, off-road sport style glove designed to offer excellent levels of protection to riders throughout the spring summer months. The Orsa has been crafted using a perforated leather palm combined with highly breathable textile to offer optimal ventilation in hot and sweaty riding conditions.
In the knuckle region and along the fingers Knox have built in a honeycomb gel layer which is in place to offer a high standard of protection against any impact injuries to the hand, while additional protection against abrasion comes from carefully placed finger sliders. The Orsa is a top choice for those who value fit and function and hate riding with sweaty, sticky hands when the sun comes out.
Another outstanding feature of the Orsa is its popular BOA closure system which means Knox are able to delete the typical wrist strap altogether. Made from aircraft grade stainless steel this closure system will give the rider a more tailored seal when compared to traditional velcro fasteners for a better overall fit and security. The clicking ratchet system is also immensely satisfying to do up.
The Orsa OR3 also comes equipped with Knox's simple yet innovative SPS system. SPS stands for Scaphoid Protection System and refers to the sliders located on the palm area of glove. This technology has been engineered to safeguard riders against breaking of the scaphoid bone in case of an accident. The scaphoid, found at the base of your wrist, is one of the most commonly broken bones in motorcycle accidents. This comes down to the fact that it is human instinct to put your hands out in a fall and as soon as your wrist grips the floor it over extends which results in a break. SPS allows the wrist to slide without gripping the tarmac, therefore preventing this common injury.
