Protective Sport Gloves for Women and Men The Racer “High Racer” motorcycle gloves are very protective. These are a sport-type racing glove, with nearly identical features made in sizes for both women and men. They are designed for the track or street rider looking for a high level of protection. The gloves are loaded with protective features but …

Waterproof Gloves for Women and Men The Traveller gloves strike a good balance of protection and comfort in a touring style glove. The mcFIT liner system adds comfort and ensures that the gloves remain waterproof. In case you’re wondering, the word “Traveller” is the British spelling of the word, which means “someone who is traveling …

Street/Sport Gloves With Style They have protection for the aggressive street rider and they offer more protection than most commuting or touring gloves. This makes them a good all-around pair of motorcycle gloves that offer a good balance of protection and comfort. SuperFabric and CE certification, along with a proper gauntlet and wrist closure instill …

Racer “Queens” Women’s Leather Motorcycle Gloves The Racer Queens gloves are made from black goat leather with a light pink liner. The design is feminine with functionality at its heart. Right from the package, the gloves fit well and have remained comfortable. While not without some shortfalls, the Queens gloves represent good value, like most …

Racer “Advance” Gore-Tex Gloves Review Like other winter gloves being reviewed in this series, the Racer Advance Gore-Tex “2-in-1” gloves are very comfortable when properly sized. They’re also very warm and quite unassuming in appearance, less the numerous branding markings. Setting them apart from many gloves though is the clearly labeled and highly valued Gore-Tex …

Racer “Race Carbon” Gloves Review The Racer Race Carbon gloves sacrifice some insulation and the Gore-Tex liner to both the Racer Advance gloves (review) and Racer Elevate gloves (review). Nevertheless, the Racer Race Carbon gloves have become my favourite. They are lightweight but solid, flexible but supporting, pliable but protective and they sure do provide lots of grip, wet …

Racer “Elevate” Gore-Tex Gloves Review The Racer Elevate gloves aren’t much like the other two Racer models evaluated — the Racer Advance gloves (review) and the Racer Race Carbon gloves (review). That is somewhat of a disappointment, although in retrospect, first impressions did count. We also had our doubts about how they would fare once exposed to the wBW “Bucket …

Racer “High Speed” Gloves Review The Racer High Speed gloves are the new flagship motorcycle race gloves for the Austrian-based company. The High Speed gloves are made from cowhide with kangaroo leather palms for protection and feel. A Pittard’s “digital leather” overlay is used for grip on the palm of each glove. The latest Knox SPS …

Racer “R-Safe” Gloves Review The Racer “R-Safe” gloves currently occupy the top spot in the Racer Gloves lineup. These may just be the most protective motorcycle gloves I have ever come across. They have many different protective features, backed up by redundant layers just in case. The gloves are made with kangaroo leather palms, which …

Racer “Stratos” Waterproof Gloves Review The Racer “Stratos” gloves are a combination of leather and goat hide with a full-sized gauntlet. Also included is a leather-covered hard knuckle protector for the main knuckles. The Stratos gloves are an all-around, multi-season type but they’re not as heavy as true winter motorcycle gloves. They also feature the …

Racer “Limes” Gloves Review The Racer “Limes” (lee-muhs) gloves are made from leather and goat hide with a full-sized gauntlet. These gloves also feature a large and hard leather-covered knuckle protector on the mains. The Limes gloves have a lightweight feel with a comfortable fit. They also feel a bit more protective than the short-gauntlet Racer gloves …

Racer “Guide” Gloves Review The Racer “Guide” Gloves have a short gauntlet and perforated sections for cooler summer riding. The gloves also feature Clarino and goat hide palms and large Knox scaphoid protectors (sliders). The nylon tricot lining is attached using the “mcFIT” (Maximum Comfort Fit Technology) system described in detail in our introduction to the VQuattro gloves review. Perforations …

Racer “Mickey” Gloves Review The Racer “Mickey” Gloves are another short gauntlet summer type but with more protective features than the Racer Guide gloves (review). The most prominent feature of the Mickey gloves is the large bifurcated Superfabric-covered main knuckle protector. Another Superfabric-covered slider protects the scaphoid. Only the top of the inside of the gloves has a liner; …

Racer “Summer Fit” Gloves Review The Racer “Summer Fit” Gloves have a 100% leather (goat skin) outer shell and a full-sized gauntlet. The goat skin makes these gloves lightweight and comfortable. Soft padding knuckle protectors means the gloves are very flexible, another plus for hot-weather riding. The palms are lined with Kevlar and the Summer Fit gloves …

Racer Supply RSC2 Gloves Review Visitors send us many different suggestions for products to review. Some of the ideas work out pretty well, while others are a flop. The time it takes to order the product, run the evaluation, write the article and get it published can vary from days to weeks, depending on the schedule, and …

Racer “High End” Gloves Review Very nice gloves, loaded with features that really make a difference. Well worth the money and actually surprisingly inexpensive compared to others we’ve seen. It’s interesting to watch how the popularity of different motorcycle clothing items waxes and wanes over time. We recently featured several articles on back protectors and visitors kept …

Add Comfort and Protection to the Ride The new Racer “Profile” D3O motorcycle shorts improve riding comfort and add some padding with their integrated D3O protectors and Lycra fabric. Shorts and underwear. These aren’t the types of apparel we often have the opportunity to review here at webBikeWorld, but occasionally it does happen, as you …
