Berik release G-8087 GP-Type 1 glove

Published: 17 July 2009

The Berik G-8087 GP-Type 1 is the latest race glove to come out of the Berik factory.

They feature a new split-knuckle carbon protector system with titanium sliders to prevent the hands gripping on impact.

There are soft PU protectors lower down the back of the hand to take away much of the initial impact and a cuff extension system exclusive to these gloves allowing you to adapt the length of the glove.

A carbon slider on the little finger is also to protect the pinky in a crash – a system now on all Berik and Areln Ness gloves after Troy Bayliss lost his little finger at Donington two years ago.

They cost £109.99 and are available from
