Gloves are fantastic, these are jist as good as previous Racer gloves I’ve had. Good design. Comfortable right off and after 1 track day were broken in perfectly and they continue to get better. Motosport customer service was great when I called about shipping time and they helped ensure I’d get them in time for an event.

I'm a tourer and I was looking for protection, comfort and durability. I got all that and a beautiful pair of gloves to boot. The leather is supple with a slight matte finish, the carbon fiber looks good.
Hard to know what is voodoo and what is real in motorcycle protection. 2 things that make sense to me are palm sliders, and the pinky wrap. The other armor is in all the right places and never gets in the way.
Because they use good quality leather, this glove is light weight. The fit is form fitting and the control interface is nicely tactile. Though it's a racing glove with a substantial gauntlet, it's easy to take off and put on.
I've done maybe 8k miles in all sorts of weather, and they have been wet - very wet (I use nitriles underneath), but they're still supple and in excellent condition. I always look forward to wearing them.
Yeah, they're nice.
I ordered the black version in large after trying the Racer R Safe gloves. The R Safes didn't fit right (fingers too long) and were very bulky, but I'd read that the High Racers fit differently. The did, they fit perfectly, and while having great protection, they're also not bulky.
The gauntlet is long, and the gloves are pretty easy to get on and seem like they'll stay that way once cinched up. I've ridden about 2000 miles with them, including through the rain, and they've been comfortable while providing good feel. In the rain I just wear nitriles underneath and all is good.
They're a beautiful glove to look at, and though not cheap, they offer more comprehensive protection than anything else I could find at this and higher prices. They seem durable, with good stitching and materials; time will tell, but I feel pretty confident.
Also, thanks to motosport for their excellent customer service.
I'm going to keep this short, because there's really not much to say. These gloves are fantastic in every way. Supple leather, protection where you need it, grippy silicone-impregnated pads on the fingertips and palm... Only thing to keep in mind is that these are racing gloves, so the pinky and ring fingers are bound together, and the scaphoid sliders are very large. Great for crashing, not so great for touring. Every track rider needs a pair of these.
Awesome glove. Very comfortable. Did a 650 mile trip on them right out of the bag with no issues. For a day to day glove, the gauntlet can be a little finicky, but not a deal breaker. Love the tan kangaroo skin palm, looks and feels great. All in all not sure there's a better glove our there.
Starting to see this brand more and heard about the great fit. Was very happy when they arrived to see the level of quality and protection they have. Fit is great and am told by Racer USA they will break in nicely. Now after 1mth riding/commute they are coming in nicely. Highly reccomend.
The glove construction and feel over all is great. I unfortunately fall between a Small and almost a large because I am a smaller guy with shorter fingers and larger hands.
I decided to get the Medium since I was border-line M or L for the palm, S for fingers. The glove actually fit nicely on the palm but after breaking it in I realized I probably could have gotten the S.
So now the bad part is that I am stuck with a great pair of gloves where the fingers are just too long for me and some what are now uncomfortable because the palm is broken and the whole glove feels big. Just fro reference, I wear a M in Alpinestars.
High Racer and R-Safe = ~4.5”
High Speed =~ 4.0", but the cuff is curved and max length from where the wrist protector is ~5.0”
Overall length of all from tip of middle finger to end of cuff is ~11.5-12”
