Let me start by saying I've always been a Held guy (and I still love my Helds), but I've finally found a viable alternative, and perhaps an even better glove.
I've liked Helds because their fit/finish is second-to-none, and they always seem to break in quickly, usually being comfortable from the second or third long ride/track day.
Well, the R-Safe from Racer has fit/finish that is as good, and they are as comfortable early on. In addition, it appears that they may offer more protection (although I pray that I never need to test this) than the Helds.
My only "negative" comments are that the gauntlet is a bit loose (I have really skinny wrists), and that there is a bit of discomfort on the middle joint of my left ring finger (although it will go away with a few more rides).
Protection looks to be phenomenal, and the overall closure system they've chosen is solid. I look forward to wearing these more and even trying some other models!

Rode 3 track days with them new. Bought the size based on measurements and the measurements were spot on for the right measured hand. Left hand felt a bit large but in the end they are supremely comfortable from the git go.

I ride about 20 track days a year wearing top-of-the line Held, Rev'it or RS Taichi gloves. My new R-Safe gloves combine the best safety features of these gloves while providing a comfortable fit. The only discomfort I noticed while riding was a point of pressure between the joint of my thumb (both hands) while gripping the handlebars. I turned the glove thumb inside out and found some excess leather and fabric along the internal seam. It just needed to be trimmed closer to the stitching. With the excess bulk of the internal thumb seam reduced the gloves fit perfectly and more comfortably than any other glove I have worn. Guidance on size selection provided on the web site was spot-on for me. Ordering was easy and delivery of my new gloves was prompt. Thanks for a great product!

These are without a doubt, the nicest gloves that I have tried. I was worried that the protection might be a little too good, but once I broke a sweat in them, they felt great on my hands and I was operating my controls just the same as the thinner gloves I had used in the past. These gloves have earned my respect and I will be a customer fore life.

I'm extremely happy with the R-safe glove. They broke in within a few sessions and are very comfortable. Construction is top notch and the protective features are what you'd expect from a high end glove.

These gloves are very comfortable and well built. They were a little snug for the first session, but they broke in and fit perfectly after that.
