Description Technical Specs Sizing Information
The HEROIC SP-R PRO line is the ULTIMATE road racing glove in North America. 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 luxury 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

5 of 5 Best glove I’ve ever had March 4, 2021
Reviewer: Mark Pajak from Iselin, NJ United States  
I tend to go a bit overboard at times, so I’ve tried all the top of the line gloves you can buy off the shelf. Alpinestar, dianese, hand droids. I met Todd at a track day and he went over the benefits of the gloves he makes. I tried them, fell in love instantly. They fit amazing, super comfy, and the precurved shape cuts down on a lot of hand fatigue. This past year i was forced to put them to the test. Someone’s motor blew up. I hit the oil slick doing over 100. I slid on my hands for a good 50 yards. The gloves did their  job wonderfully.  My hands took 0 damage. Not even a scratch. Brought the gloves back to Todd for an inspection. He cleaned them up and they are good as new. I can’t recommend these enough. Thanks Todd!

5 of 5 Brilliant product - owned and used for 3 years! February 28, 2021
Reviewer: Yaron from Mountain View, CA United States  
I'm a street/adventure/enduro rider, and these gloves have been my to go set for street riding. My current pair has accumulated roughly 70k miles over 3 years, mostly navigating backcountry technical roads in western USA/Canada.

What originally drew these to me was the double-flap wrist wrap design, since I often ride with a heavy KLIM jacket and thermals. This design allows for a snug fit, and keeps the gauntlet secure, something I've always had trouble with.

It's a very comfortable glove: fabric does not bunch up, the stitches stay out of the way, and the ventilation keeps your hand cool in extremely hot environments. Control feel is spot on, and break in period is minimal.

While these are not water proof gloves, they hold well in cold weather. With a slight tilt, venting is minimized.  

Build quality is stellar. In 2019, I've purchased the shorty variant as an adventure riding accessory (see separate review).

5 of 5 Proper finger length and width for American hands February 22, 2021
Reviewer: Mark from Tiburon, CA United States  
I've tried gloves from multiple other manufacturers, and no one else seems to get the fingers the right length and thickness for Americans. With Italian gloves the fingers are long and thin, so I don't get good feed with the tips of my fingers, Alpinestars puts the thumb web in the wrong place so if you get the right size fingers now you can't feel the grip in the palm of your hand. Heroics just fit, out of the box, and I don't have to do some ritual break in period where they don't fit.
They protect well also, I've used them in crashes more than my fair share of times, I'm a software engineer so I take hand protection seriously. These are the best gloves on the market, and Todd is great to work with.

5 of 5 1st impressions December 18, 2020
Reviewer: Jack Kimball from Auburn, ME United States  
An incredibly well thought out and crafted glove.  Very good materials and not overly cumbersome or too light.  Fit is absolutely spot on.  Now, here’s the important part...  Todd actually reached out to me to discuss my purchase and verify fit before sending anything out.  NOBODY does that!  That alone, his commitment to outstanding service and a level of care in this highly contested market has earned my business moving forward.
