Love these gloves! They Fit great,quality is excellent. My last pair lasted 17 years before a hole wore through on the thumb from using the turn signal button.
I did crash in them once and they held up great.
I’m a racer fan for life.
I initially went for the Short version ( also great - and has palm sliders ) but opted for the gauntlet version for additional protection/warmth from the longer cuff. It’s a great fit and feel and very happy with them. Also extra special thanks to Lee for helping me with the exchange and advice.
These are the best fitting gloves I've owned. Period. And I've had at least a dozen for both street and track. I have been a HELD customer for years but Racer's are just a better glove in every category - including price! My track gloves are Racers and I love them so I decided to get a pair for my 5 day ride in Oregon. Hard to decide between gloves but settled on the MultiTop2's.
Not insulated but the waterproof lining cuts the wind and it is what I would call a 'warm' glove. The fit is super comfortable and true to size right away. Finger length was perfect and there was virtually no bunching. The gloves provide excellent feel and flexibility. The build quality and material is first rate. I've seen questions about the temps for the Multi's. Generally the temps on this trip were low 50s in the morning and a high of mid 70's. I think they're great up to about 70 to possibly 75. It was upwards of 80-85 in spots. My hands weren't really sweating but if I had a summer glove I would have switched in the late PM. One thing - I wouldn't call it an issue really- is the you can feel the waterproof liner slipping or sticking a bit when you pull the gloves off or even slip them on. When wearing them its a non-issue.
One suggestion would be a wiper on the left index finger like the Held or similar. Especially if its a waterproof glove you expect to be in the rain so a wiper would be handy.
If you have just one pair of gloves these were 100% the glove to have. The Multitop is a 9.5 out of 10. It's a GREAT glove.
Fantastic gloves. Returned the first pair, they were too small.
Excellent customer support.
Great fit. They look really nice.
Order the gloves one size smaller,, normally a large,, medium was perfect,, like the look and feel,,, haven’t been in the rain yet??? Time will tell if I love them
MULTITOP 2 WATERPROOF
I would agree if asked that they're comfortable in temps between 40 to 60 degrees F.
This range covers you (north east) from the break of winter in April into May, then onto the cooler days in September down to Mild days in November (Review made Nov, 19th)
Once above 60 degrees, riding in the north east I change to a summer glove (as you should), when the MULTITOP 2 begins to makes the hands perspire.
My experience with the MULTITOP 2 and my hand sweating was; minimal at 60 F., moderate at 62+ F. and wet hands at 70 F. Making ungloving and re-gloving difficult until the glove liner dried (about an hour) Below 40 F. at expressway speeds my fingers let me know I needed an "alpine" glove, but then I'm the only one I observed on a naked bike at 38 degrees in November.
To conclude, I will say the RACER MULTITOP 2 fit my needs for the temp range outlined. Provides me enhanced protection a bargain glove can not equal when needed most. A secure, quality feel with leather equal to Italian gloves. Making it unbeatable for what it does in this price range. Recommend, recommend, recommend!
Another winner from Racer Gloves
I was first introduced to Racer Gloves back in 2007 and have confidently worn that pair of gloves for many years. They lasted through all types of weather, locations, and conditions. I only just retired them with this pair of MultiTop gloves. I have had them for a few months now and I am very happy. The fit and finish are both high quality and have 100% met my expectations. Looking forward to many years with this pair.
Multi top 2
As an instructor these are perfect! I like the coloring, as I to wear more visible gear. The waterproofing in a clincher as well. Great fit and tactile response.
Fit is unsurpassed. First of all I'm one of those riders that has lots of gloves. I like the right glove for the job and I'm also pretty cheap. I've had my eye on Racer Gloves for a while but never pulled ttthe trigger. Finally did because I needed these for track days. First pair was slightly big, ordered the next size down and "shaman" they are made for me. They are my favorites now by far. Comfort, quality, protection, badassness....its all there and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg (or even a ?). You won't be disappointed.
I borrowed a pair of Racers to tour Tuscany years ago, thought they were the finest moto glove I'd ever used -- and recall them working on screens. I'm XL and usually end up buying XXL and putting up with the fingers being too long and the gloves ending up fumblesome and annoying. I took a pic of the brand and size, hoping they still existed and I could find them. Damn. Discontinued. I took a chance on the M2s being cut from the same cloth, so to speak. They arrived last week. It's winter, bike's in pieces, so no road test. Fit's a bit snug around the knuckles. Hope they stretch, because the way they are now they'll tire me fast when offroading. They lack screen-friendly tips, hence the 4/5 stars. Isn't that a given these days? Otherwise, they look terrific and feel great and appear to be very well made. Time will tell.
Lesson for manufacturers: When you achieve perfection, don't discontinue it.
These gloves fit perfectly. Make sure you measure according to the instructions and follow the size chart. The only problem I have is that the plastic knuckle guards, at the joint, over both ring fingers, closest to the tip, dig in a little if I completely close my hands, like a fist. It's fine when riding because my hands aren't completely closed. I hope to not be making too many fists so these gloves should work fine otherwise.

I purchased the first version of this glove to use as a rain glove. It became my favorite glove whenever the temperature was below 70 Fahrenheit. These gloves were so comfortable and warm I stopped bothering with my electric gloves. My recent purchase of the second version of this glove was to go a size larger to accommodate a glove liner for when the temperature is in the 30's. The comfort and quality of these gloves is the best I have experienced including a pair of gloves that was three times as expensive. Couldn't be happier.
