Dainese 4 Stroke EVO Gloves
Might be nit picking but...
I received these gloves this morning, and I tried them to see if I wanted to use them or keep them. I was in a bit of a hurry, but I COULD NOT stand the fact that my pinky had a little extra room. Everything else was fine. They didn't move all that great because they're new, but I feel like I will be returning them as soon as I get a chance. Perhaps I might reconsider.

Best short cuff glove out there
This is a great short cuff. Its full featured, very protective. A little tight as to be expected during break in, but after it fits exactly how it should.
I wasnt sure how I would like the Dainese/Rossi "tickler" but I actually like it quite a bit. Its really helps with control interface without exerting grip pressure. XL fist true to size.

Great technical gloves that are not gauntlets. Love these gloves.

Amongst the Best Summer Protection
I have the Full Metal RS gauntlet gloves but needed a shorter summer glove which still afforded a lot of protection which led me to these.
Airflow isn't as good as I'd like it to be but it is good enough for most weather conditions. I'm also not convinced about the so called "Rossi ticklers", as Anthony refers to them. I have them on both my main sets of riding gloves and feel they may contribute to accelerated grip wear but don't notice any real benefit to feel. I'd rather have softer, thinner kangaroo palms like you find in Held gloves to improve feel over an additional, somewhat gimmicky obstruction between my hand and the throttle.
I can't fault the protection though. For a short street glove it is superb - hard parts and sliders everywhere. I don't feel I am losing anything from the Full Metal RS that isn't already redundant for the majority of street riding.
For me it came down to these and the Held short race glove. I went with the Dainese gloves as there is just a little bit more hard protection and the fit is slightly better for me. Plus, as usual, the Dainese styling is just great.

Perfect warm weather gloves!
I love these 4 Stroke gloves! The quality is far above what I expected which is saying a lot because of the high price my expectations were high but these exceeded my expectations. They exude quality & luxury. The leather feels so soft but seems durable as well. The metal knuckles & back of the hand look even better in person. They give great feel of the bike which gets to one of the two concerns I had when shopping. Would these gloves both offer enough feel for my sport bike & enough vibration protection for my Harley? Yes they do both very well though they are slanted more towards providing feel & on a long all day highway ride on my Harley they will probably let too much vibration through but I haven't ridden that bike with these gloves on for more than a few hours yet. My other concern was that they would be too hot. They aren't & I very easily feel too hot but these gloves breath enough to keep my hands comfortable. Compared to a pair of Icon 1000 gloves my girlfriend just bought for around the same price, it's no contest. These Dainese gloves are far better in every way & combined with the Street Runner Shoes have turned me into a Dainese fan. These are by far the best gloves I've ever seen, If you can afford them, buy them!

A Great Glove For The Money
These gloves are not cheap, but are well worth the price. They provide top level protection with a short cuff making them ideal for the street. The fit is perfect for my medium sized hands. The fingers and thumb length are as good if not better than a couple pairs of custom made gloves that I have purchased. They are especially snug to put on initially, but break in nicely after a couple of rides. Even after break-in they are snug to put on, but no big deal if you are not in a big hurry. Cuff closure is nice and secure. Received them the day after placing my order, excellent service from the Revzilla crew.

Awesome pair of gloves...
Awesome pair of gloves. Fits true to size. I noticed some pressure points on my knuckles after about 30 minutes of riding during my first two rides and expect this to go away as the gloves fully break in. Another quality product from Dainese. I am very happy with this purchase and believe that the higher price of these gloves reflects the added durability and protection you get with the new 4 Stroke Evo model.

Bought these cause I loved color scheme and I was shopping for short gloves with a lot protection and Evo's was the right choice to make.It's a bit pricier than others but I do believe you get what you pay for.Styling is awesome,got a lot of compliments so far and I'm just wearing them for a week now.
The first time that I've tried these on they seam bit to tight and I had limited maneuverability,also had a problem with pinky on right hand,stitching underneath top of a finger and my nail,was super annoyed by that.Also protection pieces on same finger almost pierced my skin,I was about to return them to RevZ.But I chose to suck it up and just ride to give them time to brake in and oh boy they have.No problem wearing these all day long on 90F ,the hands do get sweaty a bit,but still I can feel the airflow.The white peace of leather on palm area showing some wear from handlebars,but I do think that's normal.I've chosen Dainese ski gear for my skiing needs and I was thrilled with quality and durability and I do believe there's no any difference in moto gear,I can just assume they're even better in that field.
