With this glove we have addressed the critical requirements for off-road riding – better grip and control feedback while offering best-in-class protection. The glove is constructed using perforated stretch textile material on the back and perforated microfiber Amara suede on the palm to improve dexterity and comfort. The knuckles come with Sas-Tec™ CE level 2 rated Viscoelastic armour. The palms come with SuperFabric™ EVA reinforced panels. The index and middle fingers have silicone accents and index finger tips are touch screen sensitive.
STEP 1 – Measure your hand using a tailor’s measuring tape
There are two key measurements that you need to take into consideration for figuring out your glove size.
- Circumference – Wrap the tape measure around your palm at its widest point and lightly close your hand before taking the measurement.
- Length – Measure from the tip of the middle finger to the base of your palm at your wrist.
STEP 2 – Find your glove size by checking hand measurements against the chart provided
- If both the measurements do not fall in one particular size – use the larger of the two measures to choose the glove size.
- If the two measurements are on the border line between two sizes, try both the sizes and choose the one that offers a better fit.
STEP 1 – Confirm that the gloves are a comfortable fit.
They should not be excessively tight on any finger (especially the thumb) & knuckles. To check this, try the gloves on and form a fist several times and verify if:
- Adequate room for all fingers (specially thumb) to move and operate controls comfortably.
- Check the fitment on both hands since your left and right hand sizes do vary.
STEP 2 – Ensure the knuckle protectors are properly positioned.
The way to check this is:
- Roll your hand into a tight fist and hold the position for 5-10 minutes. This position should be easy to hold without causing any discomfort or causing any stress points.
- Ensure that the edge of the knuckle protector is not over the knuckle when the fist is formed.
A few things to keep in mind when you start using the Roost off road trail riding gloves –
- The Roost gloves are meant to be used in off-road conditions primarily. These will not offer the same level of on-road protection as our street gloves. By nature, off-road riding is more strenuous on the gloves due to higher movement and impact on the hands. While we have taken steps to improve durability, depending on usage, the gloves will wear out faster than traditional leather gloves.
- This is because the gloves are made using textile material to offer greater grip, feedback and comfort. The wear is entirely dependant upon individual use and will not be covered under the warranty policy. Since the gloves are used off-road, depending on use they will get dirty. If this is a concern, we recommend cleaning the gloves after each session.
- Fit and comfort are subjective matters and will vary from person to person. We recommend trying out the gloves before finalizing the purchase.
- Do not let the hard velcro come in contact with the fabric of the gloves, which will make the fabric fray off.

How to clean & dry off road gloves?
1. Clean the gloves as soon as you are able to, after your off-road session. This will make removing any stains easier. Leaving the gloves un-clean will make removing any stains tougher.
2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix a portion of diluted cleaning solution in lukewarm water.
3. Dampen a microfiber cloth with the mixture and gently wipe the stained areas. If there are stains which you are unable to remove using a damp cloth, use a soft bristled brush soaked in a mild pH neutral soap and rinse off using cold water. Please note that using a brush could lead to piling which will not be covered under warranty.
4. Clean the gloves starting at the wrist and working toward each fingertip. Be sure to clean well between each finger. Keep moving to a clean area of the cloth as the dirt is transferred.
5. Rinse the cloth often as the dirt is transferred. Turn the gloves over and repeat on the other side.
6. DO NOT USE HOT WATER
7. Do not use detergents, fabric stain removers, bleach or any chemicals for cleaning.
8. Do not wash the gloves in a washing machine.
9. Dip dry the gloves after cleaning in a ventilated area away from direct sunlight.
10. Do not wring the gloves.
11. The fabric is quite efficient at sweat wicking. To counter any odour, use a mild glove deodorizer to spray inside the gloves.
How to store riding gloves?
When gloves are stored wet or in a non-ventilated area, this may cause deformations and ruin your gloves, not to mention this allows mildew to grow on the leather causing discoloration and damage.
1. Make sure that your gloves are completely dry before you store them.
2. Place them in a breathable cotton bag to protect them from dust but with enough air circulation to prevent mildew from forming.
3. Store them in a cool, dry, well ventilated area
