The Viking Hydro Glove is the first summer motorcycle glove that monitors the user’s hydration levels and provides an increase in airflow for cooling while still offering with full protection in a fall. Hydration levels are monitored through an advanced technology that analyses sweat and skin temperature which then alerts the user of their hydration. The Hydrator Glove provides extra airflow to provide cooling in the area of the ulnar artery in the wrists to most effectively reduce overheating risk.
Motorcyclists are prone to dehydration due to the hot weather and their protective clothing, thus it is important to stay cool and hydrated to minimise the chances of affecting their riding ability.
