Sumo® R

(37 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.

    Amazing feel and quality

    Received my Lee Parks gloves, and I am taking them back to Australia. These are the most amazing gloves I have tried and the quality is first class. Will be showing these off... but more importantly enjoying the riding feel on my bike. Thank You! Mat

    Amazing Fit, Unparelled Comfort

    Posted by Brent on 28th Aug 2019

    These gloves are amazing. When I originally checked them out, I thought they may be a tad uncomfortable and thick, but this is absolutely not the case. These gloves are amazingly comfortable and give your hands great mobility and control over throttle and clutch. They allow you to feel the grips and controls, are warm but not hot, and they are very sturdy. The gloves look great, feel great, and offer amazing protection. These gloves are now my go-to for all future glove purchases for my bike. I used the measurement guide on the site and ordered a small (usually I'm a medium in men's gloves), and they fit perfectly. Great product all around!

    Great gloves!

    These feel like you are wearing the most luxurious gloves money can buy. I wear them for my commute, in the mornings the temps are just under the 60's and this past week I've had to drive back in ~100° weather. My hands have been doing just fine for the hour long commute.
    The only reason I didn't give it a perfect score would be because the left glove is larger than the right. I've flipped the sizing chart for the glove and both hands are the same size, but everything from the finger length to the wrist strap is noticably larger. If you have the opportunity to try the pair before you buy you'll be one ahead of me.

    Most comfortable glove I have tried on.

    Posted by Erik C on 18th Jun 2019

    I have a wide hand but shorter fingers. I bought 4 other pairs of gloves but non fit right. If I got a large, fingers would fit but it was a pain to get them on. USE THE SIZING CHART THEY PROVIDE. Make sure to print and follow directions as I am a medium because they do run big. They are so comfortable and fit perfect. I did read on other sites that the sizes don't match up, but mine did. They showed up on time in a bubble wrapped envelope. Your hands will feel the cold.

    WoW ! Awesome gloves.

    Posted by Wayne Arnold on 5th Jun 2019

    I had a pair similar to these back in the 80’s and always loved them. I saw “Fast Eddie “ on his YouTube channel “Motojitsu “ (highly recommended) wearing theses gloves and asked what brand they were. I needed a long gauntlet because I recently acquired a custom Aerostich and sadly they sleeves came up 1-2” too short (maybe because of the back protector) but these gloves will be a quick and easy solution.
    They fit and feel AMAZING. Just a classic simple style glove , the fit using the sizing tool I printed out at home is spot on. Thanks so much for such a fantastic product. Worth every penny.

    Most comfortable gloves I've ever used!

    Posted by Johann Helf on 13th May 2019

    Amazing comfort and workmanship. Easily the the best gloves I've ever worn in 30 years of riding. Took them out for a ride yesterday up the Angeles Crest and I am thoroughly impressed. Used the printable fit guide to measure my size and I am a medium in these gloves. In every other glove I purchased I have been a large or XL. These fit perfectly so use the fit guide. Craftsmanship is flawless. Worth every penny!

    Sumo-R model gloves - awesome!

    Posted by on 7th May 2019

    These gloves are even more comfortable than I expected. I heard about them from Fast Eddie’s youTube channel (Motojitsu), and he was spot on with the rationale for recommending them. Deer and elk skin is absolutely more durable than cowhide without question.

    Excellent gloves, safety comfort, and protection.

    Posted by Chad Peabody on 4th May 2019

    I've been riding with the Sump R gloves for approximately 1500 miles now. The break in period was very short and the gloves are so comfortable I can barely feel them. The armor is perfectly positioned. Very well built and if and when they wear out I will be buying another pair. My girlfriend has been asking for a pair as well.
