We like to use the right bit of gear for the job and when it comes to streetbike gloves, we’ve had the opportunity to use quite a few lately. From long gauntlet gloves to short moto-x/supermoto style, the styles and quality of gloves available for the streetbike rider are extensive.
One player in the field that’s been getting some buzz lately is Racer Gloves USA, and they offer three ranges of high quality gloves…
Racer, Sport and Winter. Racer Gloves USA is the exclusive US Importer and Distributor for Austrian motorcycle apparel brand Racer Outdoor GmbH.
Racer Gloves USA is the culmination of years in the motorcycle and apparel industries for company founder Lee Block, a lifelong motorcyclist. A former Loudon, New Hampshire road racer in the late 1980′s and early 1990′s, Lee has raced a variety of motorcycles at racetracks across the country.
We’ve spoken at length with Lee and he’s very plugged into the business and has a damn good idea of what riders and racers want and what they need when danger looms.
One offering that we liked quite a bit in the Sport category was the Mickey glove, a supermoto style short gauntlet street glove with a European streetfighter attitude. It’s a very lightweight glove, made from premium ingredients like Clarino, Teramid and Super-Fabric® (Super-Fabric is created with a base fabric and is overlaid with tiny, hard guard plates in a specific pattern, creating incredible abrasion and cut resistance).
Having ridden daily in the UK in a past life, I can say that Europeans in general take this whole motorcycling thing very seriously and go more for function than flash, and the Racer Gloves range reflects that mantra. Hence this, the Mickey gloves come in any color you want…as long as it’s black…which matches everything.
When sliding these gloves on the first thing you notice is the weight. The are super light and initially that almost feels a bit weird. The Mickey gloves are one of those gloves that are a tight fit at first, but once you have them on it’s like a second skin, and the lightweight chassis of the glove does a great job of imparting some sense of protect, albeit the light weight.
Once on and riding, the gloves are invisible. Although the glove does offer what you’d expect in any street glove like armor on the knuckles and palm, it does it in such a way that these features are very unobtrusive during the operation. One tester here felt the palm slider got it the way a bit, but that view wasn’t shared among the staff at large. We also liked the silicone overlay on the fingers, which is a nod to a pure motocross-type glove, and adds a small measure of control at the levers.
The gloves are just as stubborn coming off as they were putting on but this was a small price to pay for the enhanced feel of the glove and it got better with time. Many reviews on the web from users mention the fact that the gloves take a bit of time and use before they break-in perfectly and we expect our pair to be no different.
In conclusion, the Mickey glove offers a great alternative for riders looking for a high quality, high performance lightweight glove when riding. We used the Mickey glove when riding all types of bikes, from the requisite sportbike to the occasional cruiser and the subtle design worked with all types of gear and bike setups.
We wouldn’t recommend the Mickey glove for cold weather riding…but when it’s warm these gloves are the bomb, highly recommended and a great addition to any rider’s apparel selection.

I am typically a size M in male sizing, and based on the reviews decided to order a L. The fit was perfect for me. The construction is extremely high quality and the gloves actually offers real protection, as opposed to alot of other short gloves out there.

Really love the look of the sporty yet subtle Mickey glove! The flex panels, the precurved fingers, the grip on the palm. Everything about the glove is really well done! If i had to think of anything to maybe refine, It would be the palm slider. For a street every day glove, it might be a little too race oriented. Initial ride in them I was aware of its presence on an upright riding position bike like my FZ09. However after a few miles it became less noticeable. I would highly recommend these gloves over any of the other minimalistic short gloves a lot of brands put out which offer little to no real protection.

This is solid middle weight, short glove that I expect to cover 80% of my riding. It's well constructed and has been comfortable from the first ride, probably due to the pre-curved fingers. Though not vented it let's air flow up my open sleeves. Customer service at Racer is tops; they will make it right.

Great fit already broken in feel, I needed a XL, large was too tight.
Lots of venting for warm weathrweather riding (not for the cold)
Superfiber knuckles and palm slider
Very light weight gloves
You can feel the sewn seams inside
Thin materials in the middle palm, feels like it may not be as durable as it could be.
Customer service was top notch!

These are the best fitting gloves i've ever had... and I had MANY!
Hard to get in... but ones you are... the glove lays over the wrist like a second skin.
Fabrication quality 5 star!
