Why Olympia?

Why Olympia?

On the Road Since 1941.

At Olympia gloves, we’re proud of our past … after nearly 75 years, who wouldn’t be?  But we’re not resting on our laurels.  We’re focused on building the future!

  • Olympia first began manufacturing gloves for the U.S. military in World War II -- a legacy we're truly proud of.
  • We're known for quality, high performance gloves at fair prices.  Classic gloves with great fit, and feel … all the technical features you need, for less.
  • We’re not known for trendy styling or racing gloves. But that’s OK … ‘cause not every rider is on the track.

    Great Gloves, at a Price You Can Love.

    You work hard for your money. We respect that.

    Riders tell us that they've tried on gloves at 2x the price, and still prefer ours.  That makes us smile.

    How do we deliver high quality gloves less expensively than other brands?  It's really pretty simple:

    • We're one of the world’s largest makers of high performance gloves.  Our buying power is reflected in our prices.
    • European imports and many other brands use a "distributor". With Olympia there's no middleman, which keeps our retail prices lower. 
    • Dealers also buy directly from us with no middleman. So however you shop for Olympia Gloves, at a dealer or online, you'll always get great value

      Rider Tested, Built to Last

      You put our gloves to the test everyday. We routinely hear from riders who have worn the same pair of Olympia Gloves for 20K miles, or more. 

      • We get lots of letters with rider suggestions, and we take them to heart. Styles that have been in our line for years, are always being improved.
      • We get feedback from our Road Tester program, below.
      • We welcome hearing your comments and suggestions on our products.  Leave a review here in our online store, or contact us directly.
