Go-kart gloves - Guide and information

Go-kart gloves are an important part of your go-kart equipment!
Your grip on the steering wheel is crucial to getting a good feel in steering the go-kart - In addition to a loose feeling a poor grip can also cause arm pump/cramp in the forearms as you will need to hold the go-kart steering wheel too hard.
Important differences between our various go-kart gloves from Sparco and Alpinestars:
Gloves for go-karts and karting can be divided into two main groups - Gloves with internal seams & gloves with external seams.
The most common thing both for karting gloves and gloves in general are internal seams. These gloves are easier to manufacture and therefore also cheaper, but they can be perceived as less comfortable and give you worse contact with the steering wheel in your Gokart.

External seams are used on more expensive racing gloves and are also common on finer leather gloves.
By moving the seams to the outside of the fingers instead of the inside, you get less fabric that folds against your fingers. This is more comfortable and can also give you better blood flow in your fingers.
Our most popular go-kart gloves with internal seams (standard) are the Sparco Rush. For external seams, Sparco Arrow and Sparco Record are very popular.
Fit / Size
On each go-kart glove / product on the website you will find a size guide that gives a good indication of which size to choose. The go-kart gloves should be tight when they are new, after you have driven for an hour or two they will mold to your fingers and stretch a little. Expect the gloves to be around ~½ size bigger after they have been used for a while. Make sure you don't have too much loose fabric in the palm of your hand when cupping your hand, otherwise the extra fabric can get caught between the steering wheel and hand and impair the contact with the go-kart.
Increased grip strength
Go-kart gloves are designed with grip in mind, with a grip surface made of durable silicone you get maximum grip on the steering wheel which makes it easier to control the go-kart more precisely, it also reduces the risk of cramping in the forearms because you don't have to hold the steering wheel as hard when cornering .
Protection and Comfort
Go-kart gloves are often as thin as possible, to give you the best possible contact with the steering of the go-kart. They provide good protection against chafing and provide a good grip, but if you are driving for longer periods / endurance, it may be a good idea to use racing gloves / car gloves instead, as these are thicker and give you more insulation against vibrations.
Gloves for karting and go-karting are not covered by the regulations, so you can use exactly which gloves you want and all the gloves we sell are approved for go-kart training and go-kart competition.
In conclusion, go-kart gloves are an important piece of equipment for both beginners and experienced go-kart drivers. They improve your performance, increase your safety and allow you to relax more in your hands and arms when driving. At Radne, we offer a wide selection of high-quality go-kart gloves in various sizes and styles. We always offer free open purchase and resizing of equipment.
