"Being innovative by tradition. Preserving what is tried and tested. Improving what is good!" This is the Roeckl motto and has stood strong for six generations. Roeckl riding gloves fit like a second skin. This global company is family-owned and prides itself in quality, workmanship and remaining strong as a true market leader. Roeckl holds many patents for constructing the most comfortable, well-made, lightweight yet protective gloves on the market. From skiing and cycling to riding, Roeckl gloves are the choice for competitors and sports enthusiasts around the world.
German manufactured Roeckl has been around for more than 170 years. Jakob Roeckl was a master leather tailor who started this company in 1844 and discovered a method to tan leather to make it softer and ideal for gloves. After many successful years producing gloves for sports such as skiing and cycling, riding gloves were introduced in 1978. In 1973 Roeckl patented a cut and style to reduce the fabric on the finger seams and advanced the world of gloves by providing comfort and durability without bulk. By 2000, the 6th generation leader Stefan Roeckl brought what is now Roeckl Sports to over 60 countries and Roeckl has steadily remained at the head of the field for premier gloves.
Roeckl riding gloves from Horze come in dozens of varieties to please each and eve-ry rider. The innovated technology of the Coldblack system allows you to wear dark colours without absorbing the sunlight and heat typically associated with black gloves. As a result, your hands stay cool and will not perspire thus allowing you to maintain your grip and not let your reins slip through your hands due to sweat or perspiration. This unique patented material keeps you comfortable and will feel like a second skin as your ride and maneuver your reins in any temperature.
The colorful options from Roeckl offer just the right look for schooling or show. Adjustable back straps and closures provide the perfect fit for optimal comfort. Choices include leather, micro fleece and many ventilated fabrics with plenty of stretch and flexibility. Primaloft and Polartec materials will keep you warm during cold weather rides with the features you expect in a traditional riding glove. The palms and finger grips of Roeckl gloves are designed with the rider and placement of the reins in mind and are specifically designed for the sport. Roeckl designers understand that gloves for skiing, cycling and riding all require different and unique hand positions and grips and these gloves are created with each sport specifically in mind. Unlike other manufacturers, Roeckl also understands that young riders need gloves especially made for small hands. Instead of selling small gloves, Roeckl children’s gloves are created uniquely for the hands of young children so they may feel the same level of comfort as the carefully created adult-sized gloves.
Whether you are looking for waterproof every day riding gloves, warm winter fleece gloves or that special, elegant pair for show, Roeckl Sports has a glove you will fall in love with and wear with pride.
