In motorsport, chicane naturally means a narrow section of the track that forces you to reduce speed and challenges maneuverability. But “chicane” always has a slightly negative connotation, after all, it can also be understood as a form of bullying. What does it all have to do with the tested short glove??

A little tight on the thumb

Well, it is also suitable for motorsport, thanks to goat and cow leather, knuckle and finger protectors and plastic sliders. At the same time, however, it also leaves a slightly negative aftertaste, namely due to its proportions: While the fit on the metacarpus fits the specified size very well, the glove is a bit tight on the thumb, the index and middle fingers fall optimally, but the ring and little fingers a little too long.

This is by no means the end of the world, but rather high-level whining. Otherwise, the glove, which is available in black-gray, black-red and black-yellow, does a great job, pleasing with good ventilation, great materials and high-quality workmanship. It is not waterproof, but it is very suitable for summer or the dry early autumn.

Noticed positively: Materials, optics, workmanship, function

Noticed negatively: Finger lengths, fit

MOTORCYCLE Rating: 3.5 stars out of a possible 5

Conclusion

Quality material, beautiful appearance and also well processed. The Macna Chicane summer gloves made a good impression in the first test. Unfortunately, the fit wasn’t convincing in every area, for which points are deducted.
