3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Racing Glove Online

When the light on the track turns green, and you push that throttle to the extreme, the last thing you’d want is to have a poor grip on the car. A good grip that allows you to steer and maneuver the vehicle to your liking is fundamental to having a good race.

For proper grip and control, you need to invest in a premium racing glove. Now, you can find a plethora of racing gloves in the market, but not everyone would be worth purchasing. You need a glove that helps you with precise and smooth turns on the steering.

Here are a few things to consider when buying a racing glove online.

A Proper Fit

Perhaps one of the first things you must consider when buying a racing glove online is ensuring it’s a proper fit. Gloves that don’t fit properly can impact your ability to control the steering wheel and vehicle. Moreover, it can also allow fire egress.

So, the next time you buy a racing glove online, make sure to measure the size of your hand to find a proper fit. It is also important to remember that different brands may have different sizes, so look at the size chart online for race gloves.

Apart from gloves being a proper fit, you also need to check whether they have quality features that will provide excellent utility on the racetrack. They should be made from breathable materials, comfortable, and absorb sweat.

In the good old racing days, gloves came with a thick layer of leather on the palm area for grip. With recent technological advancements, we are now seeing modern gloves equipped with silicone-printed grip panels that offer impeccable grip while being ultra-lightweight and flexible.


Another important thing to consider is the type of certification the glove has. If you’re a professional racer, you must buy a glove sanctioned by the FIA or SFI. Make sure to learn more about the relevant certifications and how they impact your ability to race on a professional level.
