I have done this already.
Have not ridden withers gloves as yet but yghe fit and the warmth tell me they are going to be a great addition to my riding kit.
I've got several pair of gloves due for replacement. I just bought a pair of Racer Guide gloves for use in the city and they're excellent, including after the first >1000 mi of use. I purchased these Race Carbon II waterproof gloves to have something insulated and waterproof ready for fall. It's been roasting hot since I bought these, so I haven't done anything more than put them on and sit on my bikes. Out of the box, they greatly exceed expectations. They have way more functionality than the old glove they're replacing, with legit protection/armor elements and better security against premature removal. I had the choice of two sizes, and went with the smaller one. Given the additional padding built in, they fit perfectly, not QUITE as snug as the mostly-leather Guide gloves. As I don't expect them to stretch as much (being more textile), but also with the potential for the insulation to pack down a little, I think the size and fit are probably perfect. They are almost too nice to take out in the weather they were made for, but I am looking forward to cooler fall weather and I cannot wait to bust these out and take them for a spin.
Exactly what I was looking for to ride with heated grips.
Perfect sport touring winter gloves, very warm and comfortable with no break in period needed, great tactile feel on the bike, excellent level of protection and they look fantastic as well. More perfection from Racer gloves!
I love racer gloves. I’ve been on motorcycles for about 7yrs now, I ride every day for transportation, most days off I go for all day rides, weekends often multi day trips, yearly I take at least a month off and do a nice tour. I ride adv and touring bikes mostly. Every so often I on a sport bike.
The Race Carbon II Waterproof gloves are great. I like the pull light elastic draw chord in the gauntlet, which gives yet another adjustment, making sure you have the cuff adjusted as you’d like.
I really like the High Racer Gloves. In particular I like the palm sliders and how the pinkie and ring fingers are joined. I prefer this glove over everything else.
I bought the Race Carbon II Waterproof for colder and rainy days. I’d love to see the Race Carbon II in a waterproof version!
Basically waterproof adv glove meets race glove. Love those Knox sliders and pinkie/ringer joined!
Love Racer gloves! Great fit. I quit buying other stuff.
Excellent glove. I have big hands and have tried most brands of gloves and even the 3xl would not fit me. The racer 3xl is perfect fit, and even brought a second pair
Comfortable Glove, Liner Problems
Although this is the most comfortable cold weather glove I've owned, it did not hold up as I had hoped in wet weather. Bought two pairs, but had the same result. Liner came with the hand both times. If the liner can be fixed, it is a perfect glove.
Great glove, liner is not fun
This is my 3rd pair of Racer's and this is a great glove. Good protection, palm sliders, warm enough. The only thing that keeps it from 5 stars is that the liner wants to come out with your hand, especially in the wet and it's a pain in the @ss to get back in.
Best Motorcycle gloves on the market hands down!!!
History: Club racer of 8 years. I think I have owned about 12 pairs of off the shelf gloves and 5 pairs of custom. These gloves are not only the most comfortable. They keep my hands warm to the point they feel like heated gloves. I have already been down once in these gloves on the trails. They protected my hands and took a bit of abrasion without tearing the glove. I love these so much I am ordering the full Racer glove right now!.
Racer gloves - Carbon II
Simply the best. My second pair of Racer Gloves and what they seem to understand better than anyone is that being the best is very important to motorcycle riders who want either the highest in safety or the highest in performance - or both. I understand if the second goal is not most riders concern but I cant imagine why the first wouldnt be. Why go with anything less?
My new favorite gloves
I started riding with these in the San Francisco fog and they have been fantastic! Temps down to 45 and up to 70 I was comfortable but personally I think 50s are the sweet spot. I haven't taken them in the rain so I can only vouch for the cooler weather. I'm a size 8 in Held and a small in Rev'it Monster gloves, medium fits me perfectly after following their size chart and double checking with an email to Racer.
Great Winter Glove
This glove fit according to the chart, plus I got some useful advice when I called customer service. The glove is well made and beautiful. Even though it is insulated it is very flexible and not clumsy. The cuff is adjustable and fits over my leather jacket sleeve--even though my jacket is a little bulky at the wrist. I've worn it in weather down to 50 degrees and I think it's going to work out well even below that temperature.
great gloves, perfect fit!
These were my first pair of racer gloves, and I am very impressed. They work well with my heated hand-grips, are very comfortable (spot on fit using the sizing chart) and impeccable quality. The palm sliders are much larger and more substantial than my alpinestars gloves, and they have every other safety feature you could ask for in a street glove: separate wrist strap and hard protection on the fingers and of knuckles. They also work well with my heated hand grips. Great pair of gloves!
Great cold weather gloves!
Picked these up a fe months ago and really love them. Have worn down into the 20's & 30's on more than one occasion and just fine along with heated grips. Very comfy in 40's with no heat and like all Racer gloves very high quality. Sizing is pretty consistent with other Racrer Gloves (I wear a M in this Sprint, and the Grip) but L in the Rally. If in doubt on sizing give Lee a call... he's always super helpful
