Infos & Characteristics
The MAGMA LOBSTER gloves exist in 2.5mm and 5mm. These are made for really cold days, and for people prioritizing warmth over freedom of movement.
The MANERA team has been working on glove designs for two winters now, trying to provide the best comfort-to-warmth ratio possible. After testing different types of patterns, we came up with the LOBSTER as the best one.
Featuring less useless fabric and stitching than a classic design, the LOBSTER gloves are light and comfortable. Because most fingers stay together, you will feel much warmer than with traditional gloves. The separated thumb and index give a great grip and handling.
This new design will have you happy to bring the gloves out when winter kicks in!
It’s well known that the extremities are the first to freeze when weather is cold.
Our MAGMA material is one of the warmest on the market. Besides, it is highly stretchable, which brings an unmatched freedom of movement to the suits.
Its plush loops work as effective insulators and heat generators while providing a smooth and soft feeling that makes the suit incredibly comfortable. It also dries extremely fast.
Light & Comfortable
Because the glove doesn’t go around every single finger, we use less fabric, less stitching, and the overall design is less bulky. It results in a glove that doesn’t sacrifice comfort for warmth.
Because most fingers stay together you will feel much warmer than with traditional gloves.
Good Grip & Handling
Having separated the thumb and index, we made sure that this new shape doesn’t compromise grip/handling, as a mitten could. Don’t stress about your take-off or how you will handle the kite bar and the wing handles, it won’t be different from traditional gloves.
We have also added a puller inside to pull these on easily.
DESIGNED IN 3D
When the industry standard is to develop 2D patterns and try to fit it on a 3D body, we decided to break new ground and take the opposite direction. We use computer design to model good-fitted gloves in 3D, then we employ an innovative software that converts it into a precise 2D pattern for the factory.
It creates a natural, second-skin fit that makes the MANERA gloves stand out.
