The Limes Glove (pronounced Lee-mas) is a new edition to the Racer Glove line up. A value priced sport glove that combines cowhide and goatskin, the Limes glove is soft yet provides needed protection. Perforated fingers, cuff and TPU vent provide airflow.
Check the review of the Limes glove on WebBikeWorld
- Goatskin leather palm with Pittards® leather insert
- Hard shell leather-covered knuckle protector
- Perforated fingers, cuff and TPU vent for airflow
- Extra leather layer on outside-of-hand impact area
- Double closures on wrist for secure fit
- Available in Black or White/Black
- Sizes S-3XL
The Inside Line Notes - We find the Limes runs about 1/2 size small. It is pre-curved and is a tighter fitting glove which fits similar to the R-Safe or Sicuro race gloves. If you don't like a tight fitting glove for the street, order a size up than usual. Also vents very well !

This is my first purchase of Racer gloves and the Limes I bought are great! I have the white and black pair and the looks don't disappoint. Craftsmanship is very high quality. It didn't take long to break them in and now the fit is very comfortable. The gloves fit naturally to my hands and I can easily use all mechanical and electronic controls to include the GPS. If you buy Limes gloves you will be very pleased!

Experience from friends had me looking for a retailer that had a selection available. I found the company booth at a recent event and tried several pairs on then settled on the Lime.
At first it was a bit snug, but after a few hundred miles it is as if there is no glove there.
Well done Racer. This pair is awesome.

In most ways these are superior and I recommend them for fit, quality, and stitching/construction. I do believe that the thumb should have knuckle protection and adjacent to the grip areas the palm should wrap over the perforated area of the thumb for better wear. For summer use more holes should have been provided in between the fingers. The outside of the wrist area/gauntlet flap maybe should be more robust for pavement sliding.
Love the leather, comfortable and has good control feel. The fit is just right with finger length perfect. Overall initially they were snug but quickly loosened up and have remained perfect.
Maybe on the white gloves switch to black hard knuckles?

I purchased these gloves based on the webbikeworld review and could not be more satisfied. Per the review, the gloves run a little small which is perfect for me since I not quite a size large.
The initial quality is excellent and similar to gloves I have that cost quite a bit more.
I highly recommend these gloves

I find they are well made ,workmanship is really good but the finger lengths are a little long for me(on some fingers).but thats normal for my hands.
I did find them a proper fit and not on the small size as mentioned on the website.
