Detailed Description

HARNESS DESIGN have been in business since 1990 providing there customers with the best wheelchair gloves possible.

They incorporate the finest materials and workmanship into original, innovative designs that are the result of collaboration with wheelchair users like yourself from around the world.

You'll make every stroke count with our specially formulated rubber push surfaces which grip well in both wet and dry conditions. Racing gloves are padded to absorb shock with foam that will hold its shape for many miles.

Stay off the seams, push primarily on the fingers, let the gloves dry out after every use, and the standard racing gloves are good for about 1000 miles.

Harness Design guarantee materials and workmanship for 30 days, so if you have a problem just give us a call and we will contact Harness Gloves.


Standard Features

2 FINGERED GLOVE (2F) - Our most popular glove style...If you do not contact the push ring with your ring and little fingers or you want more dexterity than the 2-Pocket Mitt, consider this style. The rubber push surfaces on the thumb and first two fingers are identical to that of the mitt styles but the ring and little finger are separated from the first two fingers and covered only in leather. Standard gloves have rubber push surfaces, tabs, and thinner more flexible 1/2 padding padding on a leather glove. £169


2 POCKET MITT (2P) - If you contact the push ring with your ring or little fingers, this is the style you will want. The mitt style provides a very stable base for the rubber push surfaces which cover the thumbs and the fingers to slightly over the back of the hand on the first two knuckles. Standard padding is ½" thick on the fingers and ¼" on the thumbs.  All four fingers are enclosed in a leather mitt with a seam dividing the fingers into pairs.  Standard mitts have rubber push surfaces, tabs, and full padding on a leather mitt. £169


2 POCKET MITT MINIMUM RUBBER (2PMR) - The slightly lower cut rubber push surface on the fingers and a lightweight non-woven synthetic suede thumb make this a good lightweight choice if you don't push with your thumbs and need less contact area on the fingers. Minimum rubber mitts (shown) have rubber push surfaces, tabs, full padding on a leather mitt, and grey non-woven suede thumbs. Padding on the thumbs is ¼" thick and extends over the heel of the hand to cushion your fingertips. Padding on the fingers is ½" thick. £169


2 POCKET MITT QUAD (2 PQ) - The rubber push surface extends higher onto the back of the hand to accommodate a quad backhand stroke and a patch of rubber is added to the palm for contacting the ring when pushing steep hills.

The back opening of this mitt is wider and a second wrist strap provides additional wrist support. Finger padding is ¼" thick on the fingers and thumbs.  In general, most quads should choose the size recommended in the size chart-not a smaller size to compensate for atrophy. As with the wider back opening, any additional "size" will make the mitt easier to put on and take off.  The rubber push surface extends higher onto the back of the hand to accommodate a quad backhand stroke and a patch of rubber is added to the palm for contacting the ring when pushing steep hills.  Standard Quad mitts have rubber push surfaces on full padding on a leather mitt. £187

  • 1/2 PADDED - ¼" padding over the index and middle fingers. Less padding here can increase the tactile feel of the glove against the ring but can also increase bruising on the fingers from impact.  Our most popular padding option, usually in stock (this option is not available on 2 pocket Mitt quad style)
  • STANDARD PADDING - Standard mitts and gloves are made on leather base gloves with rubber push surfaces and tab closures and there is full ½" padding over the index and middle fingers, ¼" on quads,  and ¼" over the thumb.  Available only by special order.
  • TAB CLOSURE - The purpose of the tab closure is to unify the hand and fingers, stabilise the push surface, and maintain the hand in an optimal push position. Both can help reduce blistering and improve the effectiveness of your contact with the ring. This also allows you to relax your fist while pushing, while maintaining the shape, reducing forearm fatigue. Our standard option for all racing gloves - if you don't like using them you can cut them off: There is a positioned line of stitch with the purpose of allowing tabs to be cut off without causing fraying or weakening of the glove.

Because using gloves with tabs may restrict your hand movements and dexterity, we strongly encourage you to re-familiarise yourself with steering and brake controls when first using gloves with tabs.

If you're not sure if you want to use tabs, we recommend that you order your gloves with tabs, try them and if you don't like using them you can cut them off.
