In this video Adam Bleakney shows you how to make a pair of hard custom made wheelchair racing gloves – as used by many of the top racers today. uCoach would like to thank Adam, Wataru Horie and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign for their assistance with this video. If you try this at home, as with any DIY activity make sure you take appropriate care in terms of safety and ventilation - including safety glasses etc.

    interesting but isn’t this more appropriate for the athlete? To make a custom fit pair this needs to be done by the wearer. As the video says you will find out what you need and change them over time.
    Personally i would have liked a little more explanation about why gloves were made as they were, in relation to the technique used in wheelchair racing.  Wear points, and how this may differ between athletes.. Also any obsevations about gloves for juniors .....should these be any different to those used by seniors?
