Brass Knuckle SmartShell Gloves

July 9, 2021

Brass Knuckle SmartShell is the next-generation, cross-functional glove that does it all. It’s loaded with features that are engineered to provide protection on multiple fronts, all while excellent flexibility and top-rated ergonomic design make it one of the most wearable gloves in its class.


SmartShell BKCR4499 gloves start with a machine knit, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) with ANSI cut level A5 protection on the palms. Its strength-to-weight ratio is 8 to 15 times higher than steel. Next, thermoplastic rubber (TPR) padding is sonically welded to the back of the glove for protection from contusions, smash injuries, object strikes, pinch-point injuries to the tips of each finger, and other impact hazards. The gritty black nitrile palm coating offers excellent wet grip and the bright lime green shell color meets the requirements of American National Standard (ANSI/ISEA 107-2010) for high-visibility safety apparel.


SmartShell naturally shapes to the contours of the hand and flex points, helping to ensure maximum comfort and increased compliance. For extra durability, SmartShell is double-stitched in high-wear areas including fingertips, index finger, and palm.


SmartShell was engineered to excel in a variety of industries where impact protection, cut protection, and a perfect fit are all priorities. It is ideal for assembly, agriculture, construction, forestry and logging, heavy equipment, machine operation, manufacturing, oil and gas, and other petrol-based refining, mining, rigging, and other heavy-duty work environments.

  • Sandy finish has millions of tiny pores that absorb oils and liquids for increased grip. Nitrile finish enhances abrasion resistance and cut protection while improving wet grip. 
  • Double-stitched in high-wear areas—fingertips, index finger, and palm—for extended wear. 
  • High flexibility and top-rated ergonomic form make this glove one of the most wearable gloves in its class. 
  • Back-of-the-hand TPR padding for durable, long-lasting resistance to abrasions, contusions, punctures, and cuts. 
  • UHMWPE knit shell provides ANSI cut level A5 protection without bulk. The strength-to-weight ratio is 8 to 15 times higher than steel. 
  • Meets the American National Standard ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 for high-visibility safety apparel. 
  • Elastic cuff with hook-and-loop closure for secure, stay-on fit.
