AbstractA vented racing glove suitable for motorcycle use in which a flexible protective pad is attached over the top of the gloove. The pad has various integrally formed upstanding air scoops which receive air when the glove is in motion to provide positive ventilation to its interior, and protect the wearer's hand in case of a fall. Ventilation grills are also provided in the pad in the form of parallel upstanding ribs with vent openings in the pad between adjacent ribs. The grills likewise provide both ventilation and protection. The fingers of the pad include forward facing air scoops behind the finger joints and rearward facing air scoops forward of the finger joints, with the air inlets of both scoops facing forward when the wearer grips a motorcycle hand grip.
