78 Motor Co. Sakura Motorcycle gloves
78 appreciate the Japanese philosophy of Sakura, to embrace those brief but unforgettable moments on the open road. The Sakura glove is not only beautiful but take design a step further.
The Sakura story begins with the finest Scandinavian aniline calf hides, chosen for their natural top grain. Each receiving a 3-stage dye process for deep, striking colour. Each pair passes through a 6-hour production process from die press, machine stitch to hand finish by skilled craftsmen. The Sakura’s ribbed upper creates a tough, resistance free surface while the palm features intricately padded lines reminiscent of the human hand.
The palm is delicately padded providing comfort and feel without ‘bunching’ up whilst gripping the handlebars. The Alloy & polymer YKK zip ensures smooth operation whatever the weather. The Sakura is lined in polyester for a luxury feel. Sakura also adopts 78’s 3 in 1 ‘buddy tabs’ that allow the gloves to be kept together when not in use, provide additional abrasion protection on the wrist and also aid fitment.

78 Motor Co. is a company in Brighton, England making gloves to fit well, look great and most importantly give you the confidence to grab your machine by the scruff of the neck. All too often gloves are ill fitting and distinctly lacking style or colour but they set out to change that by making gloves panel by panel to ensure they fit great, suit your style and look timeless. Each pair is hand cut and crafted from the finest hides each with their own unique patina. They carefully select the hides personally and spend time getting the tanning process just right. Every pair has been designed to sit close to the hand yet allow fluid motion with enough protection should the going get tough.
