High Racers are track-oriented mitts that check all the right boxes in terms of protection: lots of carbon-fiber hard armor, Knox sliders on the palms, full gauntlets, and skirt-protected wrist straps. The gloves fit well out of the package—snug and flexible—and only got better with use. The thin Kangaroo-leather palms and external-seam fingers yield perfect control feel, and while there is comprehensive armor and double-thick leather, none of it inhibits feel or causes pressure points. Comfort claim confirmed. In fact, even though these are race-specific gloves, they're comfortable enough for all-day rides.
