RACER is back with a further optimized version of its Eurobike Award-winning heated glove.
No matter how tough and ambitious: The arrival of winter is quite a challenge for everybody who is into outdoor activities. Road, CX and mountain bikers know perfectly, what a turn-off cold fingers can be during winter training or a very early season ride. Passionate cyclists who are not willing to suffer any longer, should turn their attention to the E-GLOVE 2, the heated glove. French glove and protection manufacturer RACER is back with a further optimized version of its Eurobike Award-winning 2nd-generation heated glove – a centrepiece of RACERs HEATED RANGE
The improved heating and insulation technology of the revolutionary multi-purpose glove ensures that the hands of winter cyclists and other outdoor fans stay warm – even when the temperature drops to minus 10 degrees. The heating wires of the IR-WARM 2.0 heating system reach all the way to the fingertips for a perfect warmth sensation. A microprocessor in E-GLOVE 2 regulates the temperature and maximises battery life – depending on the heat level, the battery will last up to six hours.
Thanks to the qualities of Softshell and Clarino, E-GLOVE 2 is an exceptionally comfortable performance glove. While leather-like Clarino, which was used for the palm, is very breathable and provides maximum grip, Softshell on the outside ensures great insulation and protects the hands against light snowfall or rain. Furthermore, elastic bands on the wrists offer great wearability. For better visibility in all weather conditions or in darkness, the heated glove has been provided with reflective bands on the back of the hand. Furthermore, E-GLOVE 2 sports a touchscreen compatible index finger for an easy handling of one’s smartphone. To make sure that the gloves are fit for a king, E-GLOVE 2 has been developed in cooperation with the French Army Biomedical Center.
The E-GLOVE 2 is available in stores now.

The French glove and protection manufacturer RACER has proven its competence as a producer of performance gloves since 1927. At the headquarters in Salon de Provence, around 20 employees ensure the production of more than 250,000 pairs of gloves and their distribution in over 20 countries per year. Even today, all prototypes are handcrafted in RACER’s very own workshop in Southern France.
Originally a producer of ski gloves, the long-established company has demonstrated its innovative capability with the development of the first heated motorbike glove in 1983. In 2015, RACER has introduced their first bike collection which includes gloves, protection wear and from 2018/2019 on, also shoe covers. The heated bike glove E-GLOVE 2 was awarded with a prestigious EUROBIKE Award in 2017.
