  • Improved ergonomic fit
  • Strong Clarino textile on the palm with extra padding
  • Velcro stroke side/bow side
  • Breathable (mesh on the back)



Rowtex Protect Glove SP


    For almost 15 years, we have been designing the most advanced rowing gloves on the market. It all started as a project to help ourselves when we were rowing for the national team in Austria. Suffering from horrible blisters in the beginning of every season, we wanted to find a solution to protect our hands. We were fed up with not being able to train for a couple of days. We wanted to train harder. So we designed our first ROWTEX Rowing Gloves, the predecessor of the Protect Rowing Glove SP model.


    The Protect Rowing Glove SP (Strong Protection) is all about preventing blisters, even more than the LP. Foam pads on the most sensitive spots on the palm and fingers build an extra layer of protection. We use a strong but thin Clarino textile on the palm and front side of the fingers to achieve this. The Clarino material has built in laser cut micro holes to prevent sweat buildup. The fit of the glove is designed to comfortably take the shape of your hand and adapt to the changes in grip throughout the stroke. The red and green detailing on the label remind of port side and bow side. The pain of blisters and rough calloused hands doesn’t need to be a trade-off that athletes make for loving this sport with our athletic looking, highly functional protective gloves.


    We offer our customers four different models: For maximum protection from blisters during the summer season, the Protect Rowing Glove SP is the one for you. For the same level of protection in the cold season, take the GLOVE SP+ with a breathable Mesh fabric on the back of the hand for air ventilation. If you think the SP+ is one layer too thick, we recommend to opt for the GLOVE LP for the summer months or the GLOVE LP+ for the colder season.
