Sumo® R

(48 reviews) Write a Review

Never choose between durability and dexterity again! Inspired by the needs of supermoto racers who require both extreme flexibility and extreme protection, the Sumo® R gloves are ideal for street riding too. In fact, to make it even more useful for everyday riding, we added a new touch screen interface to the finger tips for controlling your iPhone/Android/GPS, etc.

The secret to adding protection without sacrificing our legendary flexibility and comfort is the use of a specialized Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) material. Its computer optimized, segmented design is transparent to the user yet provides serious impact resistance. 

Compared to the standard DeerSports®, the Sumo® R has a completely outseam construction. It also adds impact protection to the knuckles, fingers and wrist bones. 

It is suitable for all kinds of street and track riding, and includes all the same features as the standard Sumo model.

Proudly made in the USA.

Due to variations of color settings and qualities of phone/tablet/computer screens, it is unavoidable that colors will appear differently for everyone. The colors in photos and named descriptors (e.g. "black", "gold", "tan", etc) are subjective, approximate, and may vary. Color dyes within an item may vary due to different leather hides. Color and texture may vary among different production lots of the same item. Different products with the same color name may not match in color.

    Top notch protection

    Posted by Chuck Dyer on 17th Aug 2023

    These gloves are super comfortable and proved excellent protection. I previously owned the standard deer sport gauntlet gloves and liked them. These glove are one another level for protection. It feels like the leather is a little thicker than the standard deer sports and the armor feels like it will protect well. The flexibility of the armor is good and does not interfere with hand movement. These gloves are definitely worth the money.

    Superior build quality - top notch. The outside stitching on the touch sensitive fingers is so large it makes those fingers clumsy. I dont know if you can trim those seams, but I have some revit League 2 gloves that actually swap to an inside seam on just the tips of those fingers and it works very well.

    The gloves you sent look great, however, I ordered too small. Will you please send a shipping label so I can exchange for a size small (originally ordered XS)

    Dear Lee Parks Team,
    I have just opened the package that arrived and found an Extra Large pair of Sumo R but I ordered a Medium.
    Picture is attached. After trying them on, a LARGE size will fit me best.
    Please advise. I am currently residing in Taiwan so it will take time to arrive back to your factory.

    In my honest opinion, best and last pair of gloves you will need. Great impact protection. Soft comfort yet durable. Couldn’t ride with them yet because of the snow. I just decided to walk around the house all day while wearing them. Wife thought I was crazy but it was worth the criticism.
