Wow, it doesn’t feel all that long since we did a 2016 race gloves special, but here we are many months later with the latest and greatest mitt-protectors in the business for you to sink your consumer teeth into – and there are some lovely examples on these pages! A race glove is one of the hardest

things to create, because no other limb or appendage has the same wealth of movement to accommodate. And, at the same time, they must be as protective as possible without being restrictive, but also allow a huge amount of feel.

Not an easy task when you think of it in those terms, nor is it a surprise that the now venerable race glove often takes a little longer to break in than examples for other disciplines.

Like any other product in our market, we have those at the ‘bottom’ and those at the ‘top’, in terms of specification and price. But, even the ‘cheap’ gloves are now brilliant, with similar spec’ to top drawer offerings. And when we say cheap, we don’t mean £20 bargain bin fare – avoid these like the plague. With decent gloves not costing the earth there’s no excuse to ever pick up that kind of woeful tat, and shame on you if you do. On your head (or hands…) be it!
