by BIKEEXIF - Matt Nuendorf Racer Gloves Mickey Gloves I know I said riding pants are the trickiest bit of kit to get right, and I stand by that. But for me specifically, gloves have become the bane of my existence. I can only guess that I have weirdly shaped hands, because it seems that no manufacturer has a glove that fits me…like a glove. Or maybe I’m not alone. Enter Racer Gloves USA. If you haven’t heard of them before, know this: Racer Gloves make the best-fitting gloves in the industry, full stop. Unlike the issues I’ve had before with small palms, elongated fingers with short thumbs and stitching that, somehow, always finds its way just under my nails, the Mickeys feel like a second skin.
Crafted from a combination of textiles, leathers and hardened armor throughout, the Mickeys are also one of the most comprehensively protective shorty gloves on the market, too. Integrated palm sliders are placed at the most likely impact areas, there’s armor at the knuckles, and the pinky finger features a double-layered leather treatment for added support.
From behind the bars, the synthetic, clarino leather palm is both flexible and breathable. I’ve been riding with these gloves almost exclusively for just over a year now, and they’ve still got miles of life left in them. If you want a lightweight, breathable glove that actually fits and offers levels of dexterity and ‘feel’ you never thought possible, these should be the next thing you buy.

The size chart is a general guide and is not exact to every hand. The limiting factor is the larger measurement of either your palm or finger length.
For reference, the hand in the size chart measures, 9.5" palm width, 7.5" finger length and wears a large in all but 1-2 styles.
NOTE: If you are a man and have small hands, a women's size glove will not necessarily fit. A women's pattern is different.
If you are unsure of sizing, please send an email with your measurements and which glove you're interested in for a recommended size.
Place your dominant hand lightly on a table and using a flexible measuring tape, measure the circumference of your palm at its widest point. The widest point of your palm is just below your index finger knuckle, to the mid-point between your pinky knuckle and wrist. (See photo 1)
Measure from the tip of the middle finger to the base of the palm where it meets the wrist. (see photo 2)
