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.

    Excellent upgrade to an awesome product

    I bought these as a anniversary present for my husband. He previously had the DeerSport PCi, and after many many years eventually wore holes in the fingers and palm. Here are his impressions of the Sumo glove:

    My wife ordered these for me to replace my well worn PCI DeerSports. They arrived this week and I have worn them for the past two days (July 22, 2017).

    Very comfortable. The outer seams make a very comfortable glove. The touch screen fingers work with my phone and GPS fine, but require a careful placement due to being thicker than my finger.

    Control feel is GREAT! I can feel everything while being very protected. The TPR disappears in feeling and the design flexes very easily. I don't think about them at all when I am wearing them, a testament to their comfort.
