The HEROIC SP-R PRO line is the ULTIMATE road racing glove in North America. This glove line was designed in 2009 and has been the most imitated glove in the industry. HEROIC SP-R Pro V1 is the latest design offered by HRA.
The chassis of the V1 glove is solely built out of kangaroo skin. The appearance of the glove at first appearance is bulky yet protective. Pull the glove on and you will feel the immediate mobility and value that this glove has to add to your program.
The glove is built around the bodies natural rest point. A handlebar hold position. In 2009, HEROIC invented articulated fingers. You will immediately notice that once your fingers are extended into a reach; the articulation returns the fingers to the rest point. The center joint of the glove behind the heel of the hand allows for full radial and ulnar mobility. Mobility to the MAX. Yet you will notice that your wrist is also protected by the chassis of the gauntlet.
The gauntlet of the glove is actually a bell that sits on the end of your shortened HEROIC racing sleeve. HEROIC makes a shortened sleeve to allow for uninhibited mobility between suit and glove. The loosely fastened butterfly gauntlet will allow the glove full mobility and motion.
The knuckles. We place the knuckle bed on the top of your hand so that you experience full mobility and zero pinching. The metal knuckles are highly impact resistant and long lasting. The feedback is that they are the most comfortable knuckles in the industry.
The protection. WE LOVE Stingray fish leather. The leather is actual authentic leather from the stingray that you see in the water. We were the first to put hard high density foam behind the leather and sew this into our gloves and suits. The stingray leather slides on the road like ball bearings. The shock foam dissipates energy and prevents shock return to your joints. We have used seen the stingray skin slide up to 600ft with barely any abrasion other than scuffing. If you are looking for the ultimate protection that looks like a luxury ingredient off of a Louis Vuitton bag.... HEROIC SP-R Pro's V1's are for you. We are confident in the performance and your safety. These V1's are nothing short of HEROIC.
The best glove you can trust your hands in. HEROIC
