'Haefliger [57] ABSTRACT A sports glove has multiple finger receptacles projecting from a hand receptacle, and includes a. a backer layer having multiple elongated finger sections corresponding to the backs of said glove finger receptacles, and a back hand section corresponding to the back of the glove hand receptacle,

7 Claims, 2 Drawing Figures US. Patent Nov. 11, 1975 FLEXIBLE MOTORCYCLE GLOVE BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to gloves, and more particularly concerns motorcyclists gloves constructed to aid the gripping of a motorcycle handle.

Conventional leather gloves used by motorcyclists are not easily bendable at their fingers, and as a consequence the cyclist must constantly exert finger pressure and hand pressure to grip the handle. This in turn causes stiffening and cramping of the hand, after a period of time on a motorcycle.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is a major object of the invention to provide a glove construction overcoming the above problems, while retaining glove finger receptacle flexibility. Basically, the invention is embodied in the combination with a sports glove having multiple finger receptacles and a hand receptacle of:

a. a backer layer having multiple elongated finger sections corresponding to the backs of said glove finger receptacles, and a back hand section corresponding to the back of the glove hand receptacle,

b. the backer finger and back hand sections respectively having attachment to the backsides of the glove finger receptacles and hand receptacle to impart thereto a convex curvature at the palm side of the glove.

and conforming to the users hand curvature.

As will appear, the backer may consist of an elastomer, and the glove typically consists of leather or leather-like material; the attachment consists of stitching, preferably about the entire periphery of the backer; the backer finger sections are substantially narrower in width than the glove finger receptacles; the backer thickness uniform and about A; inch; through holes in the backer hand section improving overall flexibility.

These and other objects and advantages of the invention, as well as the details of an illustrative embodiment, will be more fully understood from the following description and drawings, in which:

DRAWING DESCRIPTION FIG. 1 is a perspective view ofin cyclists glove incorporating the invention; and

FIG. 2 is a section taken in elevation through the glove of FIG. 1.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION ing to the back of the glove hand receptacle. Further,

the finger and back hand sections 6 and 7 of the layer 2 have attachment to the back sides of the glove finger receptacles and hand receptacle, to impart thereto a convex curvature at the palm side of the glove and conforming to the users normal hand curvature. This condition is illustrated in FIG. 2, wherein a motorcyclists hand grip 8 is also illustrated.

The backer may consist of an elastomer, such as sponge rubber, for example, and is characteristically about )4; inch thick, for best results. It must be no more than about 3/16 inch thick, so that finger and hand flexibility is preserved, to operate the motorcycle. Also, the attachment of the backer to the glove consists of stitching 9 along all edges of the backer, the stitches connecting the backer and glove and holding the glove in a naturally curved condition as seen in FIG. 2. The backer, at the same time, allows full flexing of the finger and hand receptacles. Note that the backer finger sections are typically substantially narrower in width than the glove finger receptacles, along their major lengths. Also, the finger receptacles closely fit the fingers, to preserve finger and hand flexibility, to operate the motorcycle. The thickness of the glove material is thus no greater than that of the backer, and normally less than backer thickness.

Stretchability and flexibility of the glove, with backer attached, is enhanced by provision of a hole or holes, as at 2', through the backer at the back hand section 7, proximate the stitch connected rear portion 7' thereof. Such a hole or holes extends crosswise of the hand section, along the major width thereof.

I claim:

1. A sports glove having a hand receptacle and multiple finger receptacles projecting therefrom, comprising a. a backer layer having multiple elongated finger sections corresponding to the backs of said glove finger receptacles, and a back hand section corresponding to the back of the glove hand receptacle,

b. the backer finger and back hand sections respectively attached to the backsides of the glove finger receptacles and hand receptacle to impart thereto a convex curvature at the palm side of the glove and conforming to the users hand curvature.

2. The combination of claim 1 wherein said backer layer consists of an elastomer.

3. The combination of claim 1 wherein the backer finger and back hand sections are respectively stitched to the backsides of the glove finger receptacles and hand receptacle.

4. The combination of claim 1 wherein said backer finger sections are substantially narrower in width than said glove finger receptacles, along the major lengths of the sections.

5. The combination of claim 4 wherein said glove consists of leather or leather-like material.

6. The combination of claim 2 including hole means through the back hand section, and extending across the major width thereof.

7. The combination of claim 2 wherein said backer layer has uniform thickness of about 6 inch.
