Heavy "Lobster" Gloves - SPES


Prix €157.50

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.

Bought on recommendation. Very good protection of the hands. Personally, too clunky for me. I will probably look for something slimmer and more mobile. For tips from you I am gladly open.

I tried the Gloves several times before I ordered them, they give very good protection for heavy sparring and tournament fights.

Thiccck. I like it. Suprised by the flexibility they allow, but i do recommend wearing them a bit randomly to make them softer, smoother, oil it with your skin.
