In the world of motor sport, pit stops and repairs are measured in tenths of a second. That means every hand movement has to be right first time. So it's hardly surprising that it was a NASCAR race mechanic who created his ideal work glove at the start of the 90s - the original Mechanix glove. The trickiest problem was to design a glove that would provide the best possible protection against injury, while still giving maximum dexterity and feel. These gloves from Mechanix Wear clearly succeed in squaring the circle perfectly. That's how a race mechanic's idea gave rise to a company whose name is known the world over. So normal DIY mechanics like us can also benefit from the motor sport experience of Mechanix Wear.
