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.

After a year of wearing gloves that just weren't that comfortable, I decided to take a look on WebBikeWorld to find some gloves that they recommended. I came across the R-Safe glove review and was very impressed by what they had to say. The gloves had everything I wanted and received their top safety mark of approval....sold!
I didn't give them much of a chance to break in before they went straight to track duty. In my opinion, the best gloves you can have while riding offer maximum protection and you don't think about them while you're riding. Well, I haven't had a chance to test the protection (thankfully), but I can tell you that I didn't think about them once during my track day. My previous gloves caused my thumb to go numb by the end of every session...it was night and day with the R-Safes!
Look at the price, look at the features and then go compare those two variables to the big name gloves. In some cases you're paying $150 more for less. Protect your hands, save yourself some money and just get these gloves in the first place.

My palm measures 8.5" and fingers 7.5". I went with the medium and they were a little stiff and tight at first. The fingers were the right length but the thumbs felt about half an inch too short and it was a little uncomfortable.
After about 5 hours of use they broke in and the thumbs eventually stretched abit and now they fit perfectly. I've never had palm sliders on a glove before and did find I had to adjust my grip positioning a little and I got cramps in my right palm until I got used to them. The gauntlet is the perfect size to fit over the cuffs on my Alpinestars GP Plus leather jacket. The wrist strap is a little fiddly if it comes loose while trying to attach it. After practice and abit of patience it's no problem unless you're doing it in the dark.
Protection is excellent and I feel confident wearing these gloves. Just took a little getting used to. They are a little warm but nothing to complain about. I've been wearing these everyday now for 6 months for my 35min daily highway commute to work and back.
Delivery took 3 weeks to Australia which is pretty standard when I order stuff online from USA or Canada.
I highly recommend these gloves if you want comfort, awesome abrasion protection and palm sliders.

I've owned 10 different motorcycle gloves over the last 20 years, and these are the best. My last pair survived two crashes on track. These are great gloves.

I've had the gloves for a week and have put about 500 miles on them in heat, cold, rain; on the road and on the track. They are actually pretty waterproof! They have broken in nicely, are very comfortable, and provide the protection I've always wanted for my hands (I make my living typing), including a long gauntlet. Seriously, I enjoy putting them on for every ride.
I have non-standard hands, so I contacted Racer over email. Lee helped me choose a glove and size. The gloves arrived a couple of days later but I decided I needed a snugger fit. Since I live 40 minutes from Morgan Hill, I called them and rode down to try gloves in person. Lee helped me choose the best fit for my odd hands.

Very impressed with these gloves. I wanted something with the palm "knox" protectors, and these also have so much other protection.
I am confident that this purchase has given me as much protection as possible in case of a "get off".
My measurements = medium, yet the gloves seemed a bit tight. Especially when first placing the hand into the glove, a bit hard to get into the opening - then once "in" they were simply snug but not tight or binding or uncomfortable.
After one ride they fit great. Still a bit of effort to get the hand into the glove, then once in, very comfortable. Length of fingers is perfect with like 1/8 inch to spare.
So I would say they run true to size, but if you border on a larger size you may want to order that.
These turned out to be perfect for me.

Lee helped me figure out the proper fit for the R-Safe glove. Great customer service right off the bat. Then the gloves arrived and I could finally see why it is nearly impossible to find a negative review. They are as well constructed as anything you'll find at any price, and they are comfortable. A bit tight at first, but that is explained as normal, and they have begun to loosen up and break in. Within minutes of putting them on I knew they were not going back! I'm not sure you can get a glove this good even paying $100 more. No carbon fiber crap, painful seams, glitzy do-dads, or bad stitching like you find in the competing brands. But plenty of protection.

Fit great, fast break in and many features of gloves costing more. Shipping was fast and very well packaged.

This is my 2nd pair of Racer Gloves. I never had a chance to wear out the 1St pair, someone swiped them off my desk. Sad day in the office! Felt naked and unprotected wearing my old pair of Alpinestars. Enjoy working with Lee Block he turned a new pair so Racer Gloves to me in a matter of days. Fantastic quality & workmanship! Really love these gloves would and have recommended them to anyone.

I found these gloves to be a little bit of a challenge to get on due to the very narrow wrists on them. The length was perfect for me. After a few rides they are some what easier to get on and off. That being said, once on, despite all the Knox armor, these are very comfortable gloves and I would rather they break in to my hand size than be floppy and loose in another year or two. I have had several pairs of less expensive but trendy LOOKing gloves, the R-Safe makes me realize what the extra cash gets you. I would recommend these to any one is serious about hand protection.
