Our Roots Run Deep
Shawn Schild began designing gloves more than 30 years ago, back when he was competing as a bareback rider in Rodeo. His goal was to create a glove that would give him an advantage in grip strength, while also protecting his hand. Over the years, Shawn’s gloves have become THE standard in bareback riding and are quickly gaining prominence in bull riding still to this day. It has been perfected over the years and now built for every successful bareback rider, including all top 15 in the National Finals Rodeo.
Now, Bear Knuckles™ is bringing Shawn’s patented Double Wedge™ ergonomic design to the working man and woman-not just bareback riders. Our gloves are built with curved fingers, the way your hand is naturally. The result is a leather glove that not only has a better grip, but reduces fatigue and lasts much longer.
With Shawn’s rodeo expertise, we know how much strain and pain can be on a hand for 8 seconds. We also know that those who have to wear gloves for work and other strenuous activities actually suffer from these same symptoms all day.
Having been designed by an actual user and tested in the toughest of environments, these gloves are different than any typical working glove due to our quality and experience. Crafted to be long-lasting, comfortable, and provide less resistance, Bear Knuckles comes to your rescue with our ergonomic Double Wedge™ work gloves! We’re happy to share our story and experience by providing you the assurance your hands will be protected and feel great no matter what task is at hand.
