With over 17,000 nerve receptors in your hand, it’s immediately apparent how well a glove fits the moment you slide it on. My right hand was smiling by the time my fingertips touched the ends of the Racer Women’s Comfort 2 gloves. The inside is invitingly fleecy, and the fit closely follows my hand’s lines without being constricting.
I am not surprised. I have two other pairs of hand protection from Racer Gloves USA that have spent countless miles wrapped around the handlebars of a variety of motorcycles. Being a gloves-only company, Racer knows what’s essential to making a glove work—it needs to fit right while in action. This can be tricky if the focus is defending against cold weather, hard objects, or water. If the fingers are too bulky, if the fit across the top of your hand is constricted, or if your hands get sweaty and can’t breathe, it interferes with the seamless operation of levers, switches, and buttons, which can be a safety issue.

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)
