Manufacturer details: Held
Made by bikers for bikers
What began as a small glove-making business back in 1946 is now one of Germany's largest motorcycle clothing and accessory firms. Ever since they developed the first out-and-out racing glove for Toni Mang, back in 1983, Held has rightly been regarded as THE glove brand. Continuous development and innovation coupled with top-quality craftsmanship have built an excellent reputation. And one that has long since extended far beyond gloves: textile and leather clothing, helmets, tank bags and saddlebags are just a few of the products from the Allgäu-based family firm creating a sensation around the biking world.

SuperFabric brand technology ia an advanced, multi-step engineered process that takes ordinary fabrics and transforms them into a variety of unique, protective solutions, known collectively as SuperFabric brand materials. These new protective fabrics is engineered for optimum resistance to cut, punctures and abrasions while remaining highly flexible. Optional properties such as flame resistance, specialized grip and more, make for a complete customized solution.
There are around 48 different species of kangaroo, some of which are protected. However, the population of the huge Macropus giganteus kangaroo has grown so rapidly that it has become a real pest. This is why it is permitted to shoot this animal with a trapper's licence from the Australian government and to export it subject to the terms of the Washington Convention on endangered species (CITES).
A special dying technique ensures that our kangaroo leather is absolutely colour-fast, while a special tanning process makes it highly resistant to moisture and sweat.
Normal leather becomes hard and brittle and shrinks when exposed to the wet, and in particular to perspiration. Kangaroos do not sweat through their skin, but only under their tail and on their tongue. So the surface of a kangaroo skin has no pores, and this also affects the fibre structure. While the fibre structure of cowhide becomes slightly looser when subjected to stress, it remains more tight-knit in kangaroo leather.
