Without doubt, the true king of motorcycle gloves are HELD. Having been around for 70 years this year, there isn’t a company around today that knows more about creating things that ‘fit like a glove’!
Starting out their family business back in 1946, in the picturesque municipality of Burgberg, Allgäu, HELD initially created couture and working gloves. By the mid 70’s they had developed gloves that were perfectly developed for the use of motorcyclists.
In 1983, HELD earned their place in history, and developed a radically different sports glove in collaboration with Germany’s most successful road racer of all time, Anton ‘Toni’ Mang. The 5 time 250 and 350GP World Champion gave HELD the inspiration to create the most advanced racing glove known to man! It was so advanced in its specification, that it forms the basis of ALL modern sports gloves, even today!
Wind forward to 2005, and HELD Produced the now Legendary HELD ‘Phantom’ glove. This awesome motorcycle glove went on to win numerous awards throughout Europe’s motorcycling press. In 2006, Europe’s biggest circulating biker magazine, MOTORRAD, awarded HELD the coveted MOTORRAD BEST BRAND award for gloves. HELD has since been awarded this prestigious award for 10 years running!
Still family run, and still operating from their factory in Burgberg, Allgäu, you can be sure that your gloves have been hand crafted, and given the love and attention that you can only expect from a family run business that backs their products with the same passion that they started out with 70 years ago.
