Sick of not being able to find women's gloves (not just small men's gloves and that weren't covered in pink) locally we were on the hunt to find a product which not only met our standards aesthetically, but also in safety. The first thing that goes down if you do come off your bike is your hands, so armour was essential. When Hannah from Black Arrow designed the Queen Bee gloves we were hooked.
These gloves are designed specifically for women. They have a smaller more snug fit across the palm which is generally where small mens gloves let us ladies down. Smaller knuckle armour gives better fit, stretch panels for better comfort, the palm and side have a double layer of leather with quilted diamond stitching and the gloves are fully lined.
A feature we love though, is the tech leather in the thumb and index finger so you can still use you phone without having to take your gear off.
The fit of these gloves are hands down the best we have tried. I have quite petite hands, and not only do they fit tight and snug, I don't feel like I am in ski gloves or have gaps at the ends of the fingers. And I am in love with the Forest Green. Can't wait to pair them up with the Forest Green Cashmere Neck Warmer. The investment in these gloves will take you through many years of riding.
We stand by our opinion that you don't have to compromise safety for style. These Queen Bee Gloves are the bee's knees.
