Make every stroke count with the Harness Wheelchair Racing Mitts from IndeMedical.com. Incorporated with the finest materials and workmanship, Harness Wheelchair Gloves are innovative and original. Stay off the seams, push primarily on the fingers, let the gloves dry out after every use, and the standard racing gloves are good for about 1000 miles. Custom made PER ORDER, please allow up to 10 day to build, plus ship time from Florida. Not available for Expedited Shipping. Various styles available, read below for full options.
All four fingers are enclosed in a leather mitt with a seam dividing the fingers into pairs. If you contact the push ring with your ring or little fingers, this is the style you will want.
Standard mitts have rubber push surfaces, tabs, and full padding on a leather mitt. Options include ½ padding, and without tabs.
The rubber push surfaces on the thumb and first two fingers are identical to that of the mitt styles but the ring and little finger are separated from the first two fingers and covered only in leather.
Standard gloves have rubber push surfaces, tabs, and full padding on a leather glove. Options include ½ padding, and without tabs (shown).
Standard: Standard mitts and gloves are made on leather base gloves with rubber push surfaces and tab closures and there is full ½" padding over the index and middle fingers, ¼" on quads, and ¼" over the thumb. If you don't specify any options, this is what you're going to get.
½ Padding : ¼" padding over the index and middle fingers. Less padding here can increase the tactile feel of the glove against the ring but can also increase bruising on the fingers from impact. This option is not available on quad styles.
Tab Closure: The purpose of the tab closure is to unify the hand and fingers, stabilize the push surface, and maintain the hand in an optimal push position. Both can help reduce blistering and improve the effectiveness of your contact with the ring.
Because using gloves with tabs may restrict your hand movements and dexterity, we strongly encourage you to re-familiarize yourself with steering and brake controls when first using gloves with tabs.
If you're not sure if you want to use tabs, we recommend that you order your gloves with tabs, try them and if you don't like using them you can cut them off.
