The SPES heavy gloves v. 1.0 are designed to protect your palms which are exposed to injuries during trainings of historical fencing. Our protective heavy gloves provide full cover for four fingers and thumb.
The outside part of the palm and fingers are also protected by the overlapping plastic elements made of polypropylene. Polypropylene represents a high resistancy to cracks which guarantees a higher durability and resistance.
The 11cm cuff made of fabric is reinforced by six covered with leather elements which aim is to protect the wrist’s bones.
On the wrist there is also a leather belt with a buckle which enables the fencer to better adjust the glove to fit the palm.
The inner part of the gloves is covered with synthetic leather. The quilting of the gloves provides additional amortization against the hits.
Now thanks to our heavy gloves, trainings with heavy weapon, feders or dussacks will become much safer.
