The Sector 9 Downhill Division Lightning Slide Gloves are high-end leather gloves for aggressive downhill skateboarding. The Lightning Gloves feature integrated knuckle reinforcement, palm padding, reinforced rubber fingertips and the new DD Lightning Pucks. The Lightning Gloves also include a carrying bag for easier travels.
In order to test these gloves, we hit up some hills in Brooklyn.
These gloves offer some serious protection for your dainty digits. Our favorite things about the Sector 9 Lightning Gloves are the grippy fingertips and short cuff length. There’s plenty of mobility to allow for grabbing and quick hand-related movements.
In colder weather these gloves are an excellent choice. In warmer weather, however, they could be a bit too warm. But that’s just how it goes with leather protective gear.
These are some top of the line slide gloves. They’re super durable, pretty much BADASS, and will be able to handle any kind of skateboarding you can throw at them.
