Merlin Explorer Collection
The Merlin Explorer Collection has been designed to complement the rise in accessible, do-it-all motorcycles, along with the increased desire to get out and travel thanks to nearly 18 months of COVID-19 lockdowns. Also behind the design – the rise of younger motorcyclists, with Instagram’s heritage scene rapidly growing and the build-up of motorcycling in popular culture encouraging more young people to get their licences. Explorer offers rugged styling, durability and protection while incorporating the signature Merlin styling using only the best materials and components, such as Halley Stevensons® waxed cotton, D3O® armour and Cordura®.
Merlin Mahala Raid Explorer Glove
Combining an abrasion-resistant Cordura outer with a hardwearing kangaroo leather palm, the Merlin Mahala Raid glove is durable, lightweight and highly protective. D3O® armour adorns the knuckles, and protection is enhanced by the addition of SuperFabric® reinforcement to the palm. Punched leather on the palms and fingers further aids breathability on warmer rides, while the mid-length cuff with Merlin-branded closure tab easily slots under the Mahala jacket range.
Caring for your Mahala Raid gloves
To care for your textile glove, rinse it in water to allow dirt to loosen. In a bucket, mix some mild hand soap or diluted detergent to wash the inside of the glove. Let the gloves soak for a while – you can use your fingers to clean the inside liner. Then, rinse the gloves out and leave to dry in a well-ventilated area.
