Back on Track Riding Gloves
The Riding Gloves have been extensively tested in Sweden, with excellent results. These Gloves provide superb grip and will withstand tough usage. The outer shell is Polyurethane coated Polyester, lined with the revolutionary Welltex™ ceramic infused fabric, making them a perfect, robust glove for cold conditions (and are fitted wrist with Velcro tab for a close fit). Plus, they are not restricted for use by the equine fraternity!
PLEASE NOTE: Sizing tends to run small, so the manufacturer recommends ordering between a half to whole size up from your normal glove size.
How to measure your size:
Use a tape measure to measure all the way around your hand at the widest part, excluding your thumb. The measurement in inches is your glove size. If you are right-handed, measure your right hand; if you are left-handed, measure your left hand. We recommend rounding up to the nearest half inch size.
Fabric is manufactured in China and consists of 100% polypropylene (with ceramic powder) or 50% polyester (with ceramic powder) and 50% cotton. Washed at a maximum of 40 degrees with gentle washing program.
About Back on Track:
The company Back on Track manufactures joint and muscle protection, which are manufactured from a “ceramic textile” which is sold under the registered brand name Back on Track.
The textile is made up of fibres of polyester and polypropylene (some of the products are mixed with cotton fibres) with a ceramic powder fused into the fibres. The ceramic gives the fabric its unique property, which reflects body heat in the form of infrared heat radiation.
How does Back on Track work?
It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.
Heat energy can be transported in three ways: conduction (transfer), convection or radiation.
- When heat transfer or conduction occurs, the heat in a material spreads from one part of the material to another.
- Convection is the loss of heat when a heated liquid or gas (e.g. air) is displaced, carrying the heat with it. The insulating material in ordinary clothing and joint supports, for example cotton, wool and neoprene, is designed to prevent convection and thus retains body heat in the air outside the skin.
- Radiation occurs when a heat source emits heat radiation, where upon it collides with another surface and heats it. Back on Track’s products work with radiant heat, the purpose of which is to avoid trapping the heat through insulation. This is so that the protection has a respiratory function, while heat energy in the body tissues increases.
