Riding a motorcycle in the rain can offer a variety of extra issues that add to the dangerous nature of riding a bike on public highways.
Now Frederick H C Brewer has designed a new safety motorcycle glove which includes innovations to combat bad weather and potentially lethal sudden death downpours.
Brewer explains a little more about his new revolutionary Cham FB bike glove design :
“At the moment all you can do when caught out in bad wheather on a motor-cycle is painfully look through the drops on your visor for as long as you can, and then forfeit to smearing it with your leather glove. This only makes things worse.
All the while you have the added pressure of your safety and others. It is near on impossible to see in front of you, let alone your mirrors on a motorcycle in a downpour and i’m surprised that a safety commission has not yet recognised this as a serious preventable road hazard for motorcyclists.
My innovative idea is based on research and use of my own knowledge through my experience in riding throughout my life. I came to my light-bulb moment whilst out riding my 2008 Yamaha R6 in mid-summer of 2011, as soon as I got home I looked for a product to match my problem, but it was to no avail. My excitement grew massively, my idea had potential and hadn’t hit the mass market or magazines.
My Idea is to add a fine grade chamois leather to the left hand, inside fingers and thumb of the motorcycle glove. This will give the motorcyclist a massive safety boost in bad wheather and sudden downpours. This will then grant the motorcyclist the same attribute that every other motorised road user has; a windscreen wiper! ”
The Cham FB motorcycle safety gloves project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise £14,500 in pledges to make the jump in to production.
