Schwenkel has revealed its new gloves that use CeraTex effects that reportedly help to “increase the blood flow in hands by up to 80%.”

CeraTex fibres claim to “give added warmth and stimulation in the fingers” as well as “reduce muscle tension in the hands, accelerate bone healing and activate cell metabolism.”

A spokesman from the German glove manufacturers, said: “They are the world’s first riding and driving glove that use the therapeutic effects of Ceratex.

“They have been tested in Germany over a period of time and have proven to counteract any stiffness and dramatically improve riders and drivers who suffer from Raynaud’s.”

The gloves are made from Pittard’s Armor-tan leater and are available in black or cognac in sizes 6.5-10 — RRP £65.99. For stockist information head to www.zebraproducts.co.uk or call 01352 763350.
