Unfortunately, they aren’t motorcycle gloves as they have no abrasion or impact protection, although they do make leather versions which would have reasonable abrasion protection.
And managing director Remy Nagelmaeker says they have no plans “at the moment” to make them more compatible with riding.
“Since our products are made for minimalistic yet efficient design for regular everyday use, adding extra features necessary for riding could hinder their look and feel for the general audience,” Remy says.
And that seems to be the major problem.
The “extra features” such as abrasion-resistant material and armour seem to be hindering the sensitivity.
Some motorcycle instruments and GPS units use resistive screens.
But in testing, we have also found these to have erratic functionality and lack the fine detail to perform many functions.
In fact, because touchscreen-sensitive gloves and screens are so hit and miss, they can be a dangerous distraction as it can take longer to get them to work.
Meanwhile, your eyes are off the road for longer …
Again, we suggest leaving the screen alone until you pull over.
Then, it’s more convenient to have gloves or a screen that works with gloves, rather than having to remove your gloves first.
