When a good friend of yours who happens to be connected in the Industry in a very unique way tells you to "check out Racer Gloves" you do it. Joe Salas, owner of 4TheRiders, pretty much told me they were the best gloves he had every ridden in. I, of course, did not believe him. But I put the statement to the test. The R-Safe are amazing gloves. Super comfy, perfect fit, excellent feel and just the right amount of protection. The gauntlet portion is a pinch longer as well compared to the High Speed gloves, which I like. Gives the gloves a more secure fit. The additional Knox slider on the palm is a nice touch as well, and does not interfere or hamper my riding at all. I happened to crash at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway while racing this past weekend. Tucked the front in T4 at around 80+ mph. The external gauntlet slider and knuckle armor took most of the impact and slide damage, with the leather being that did touch the ground holding up very nicely. I'll be wearing these gloves for a while; you can count on that.
