Great fit by following the guide I bought these for my MSF class and broke them in that weekend. I have been wearing them in hot weather and they are fine. Good knuckle protection! September 28, 2015
Great looking glove feels even better I bought this pair of gloves based on good reviews, great style, and all the protection they offer for a short cuff glove. I'm 100% happy with the purchase. Though the price does seem a little high for me, the quality is great and they are comfortable for city riding and offer a lot of protective features that might save your hands in a fall. September 2, 2015
waiting for break in I ordered a size L at first, but couldnt grab my bars without my fingertips getting sore. Noe the XL's fit nice, i like them. And hopefully they break in nicely, i only have <100 miles on these bad boys. August 24, 2015
Excellent short cuff gloves These gloves are great. Fit sung at first, which is what I want in a pair of leather gloves, but broke in quickly and now fit perfect. Great protection and features. My only complaint is that the airflow isn't great. On a 90 degree day they can get a little hot even cruising on the freeway. I would definitely buy them again. September 14, 2015
Great product The gloves are not cheap but they are well worth the price. Protection is great comfort is real good. They are a little tight but are breaking in nicely. If you follow the sizing chart on revzilla you will be fine. Great service and fast free shipping from revzilla. I will be buying all my new gear from here. July 20, 2015
Sacrifices After riding with these gloves for a few thousand miles this is my initial take so far. Pros: -I bought the red and black gloves to go with my cbr600, needless to say these gloves look badass and really accent my motorcycle very well. -I feel much more protected in these gloves if I was ever to have an off. Cons: -pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for in quality I suppose. -For me on both gloves the index and middle finger about an 1/8th inch to long. -As others have stated the stitching on the inside seams around the finger tips particularly the pinky can become uncomfortable. My right hand tends hurt relatively quickly and it's not due to hand positioning because I've never had this issue before. -Airflow seems nonexistent. I ride in weather that is 80-90's and humid, so I do some serious sweating in these gloves to the point where it takes multiple days for them to air dry. If I had the chance to do it over I would go with a different glove. I expected perfection for the price is was paying and it just wasn't quit there. July 20, 2015
Great fit after break-in I would highly recommend these gloves. After an initial break in period of a few days they became very comfortable and easy to put on or take off. I have had small objects hit my knuckles to no effect which otherwise would have been painful. Pros- Pre curled fingers for good length -High Strength Knuckle and pinky reinforcements -Comfortable leather interior provides decent protection from temperature and sharp objects Cons- Sweat stays trapped in there, which is kinda gross to put back on. -little difficult to put on, remove until properly broken in. July 13, 2015
Great for southern California three season. I bought these to replace my revit chevron gloves that I wore out. These are everything you expect from Dainese. Out of the box they look very well made. Once you slip them on you find them snug, which I want in a leather glove so they don't get loose when they break in. The leather quality is top notch and all the armor fits exactly where it is supposed to be. The carbon fiber knuckle protection is heavily padded and there is a hard plastic palm slider that wraps around to the outside to protect the likely impact areas. My only issue is airflow. Even the perforation between the fingers doesn't feel like any air gets through. It's not a big deal in so cal. I would definitely recommend these gloves to anyone looking for race glove protection without the gauntlet. July 6, 2015

Jeffrey M: Solid protection. Dec 1, 2014

EDSON T: protection and style. Oct 18, 2013
A shopper asked: Hello!

I'm looking to grab a pair of these (Dainese Carbon Cover S-ST Gloves). My hands measure 8.75". Is it better to size up to a 9", or or can I rely on the gloves stretching out a bit and going with the 8.5"?

Michael R: Go with the size up, yes, they will stretch a little bit, but if they remain too tight then they can start to cut off circulation and make your fingers numb. They are good gloves but I almost never wear mine because they are a little tight for my hands, and they are designed for thin fingers which is just a matter of personal preference and hand shape. if you have thin fingers then maybe they'll stretch out okay.

Alberto H: I bought a pair of Dainese S-ST gloves, and later lost one of the pair. As was very satisfied with them, I bought a second pair. There was no difference in size among purchases, so it seems Dainese keeps `size quality control´. In the past I twice bought the same glove again, and was surprised with small differences, like a larger thumb, or a slack cuff. My gloves stretched from tight to confortable. Apr 14, 2015

Isaiah G: I do have fairly thin fingers, but yeah, I have owned gloves in the past that were too snug, and wasn't to happy about the purchase. At this price point it could be a costly decision to size down.

I'm also concerned about where the knuckle protector will be positioned being in between the two sizes ...maybe I will need to order both and go from there.

Kerry J: These gloves are a little stiffer than my last pair o Dainese gloves but they will stretch some. I'm really still breaking mine in only because I have 3 good pairs of gloves. I do recommend the glove. I know I'm kind of vague but it's really how much time the individual can tolerate the glove being snug until it breaks in. I hope I helped at least a little. Apr 13, 2015

Chad W: Size up probably. They won't "stretch" but rather loosen up and break in. There isn't much material to a glove so there's not a lot to stretch. Apr 13, 2015

Richard H: They do stretch, but not too much. They do get worn in and a little more comfortable. I went to an XL and everything fit finger wise but the carbon fibre knuckle protector was still bugging me and cutting off blood flow so I ended up squeezing the gloves until the carbon fibre kinda cracked in the middle a little bit. Now I can wear them for hours on end with comfort lol. Nov 20, 2014

Heath F: Mine were also a tight fit, especially fitting my hand in through the cuff area. It took quite a while, like two months, but they did stretch out enough to be comfortable. I used some saddle soap on them to help soften them up as well. Pretty decent gloves to ride in. Nov 20, 2014
Reply to Heath Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kerry J: They will stretch out enough but it will take a good bit of wear. So far, I've been very pleased with this pair of gloves. I wear them mostly while riding my CBR1100XX. Give them a little time to break in. Nov 19, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm deciding in gauntlet style or short cuff in either the Rev'it SLR or Dainese carbon cover or veloce. I ride a 1200 Moto Guzzi Griso so I have a heavy clutch and ride in an urban setting, Phoenix Arizona so 100+ weather? May 10, 2014

Paul R B: I just purchased the Dainese gloves and so far so good. They are not as rigid as some other reviewers are saying. I was worried when I read that from some. They are just as soft as any other glove I have purchased. I live in Las Vegas and we have only reached upper 90s so far so I can't really say how they will be once we reach 100+. I doubt any glove will keep your hands from sweating especially in an urban setting. I like them so far and would recommend them. I especially like the fact the velcro closure is on the palm side of the hand as opposed to the top of the hand like most gloves. Hope this helps in your decision. May 10, 2014

A s: Great bike. I ride v7 racer. I love my short cuff Dinaise carbon s gloves. They are excellent glove with great protection and grade feel.They are very comfortable but also feel strong and durable and will be great with a heavy clutch as well. They will look cool with your bike also. Definiitley the short cuff carbons. They fit true to size. I wear large and the large is perfect fit. May 10, 2014

Thanh P: I bought these for my z1000 and they are great. I live in oklahoma and it can get a a little warm and sweaty in the summer. It has good movement, but not a ton of perforation. Good choice for sports bike in decent weather and short /medium lenght rides. Not for touring in my opinion, but a great choice otherwise. May 10, 2014

A shopper asked: What is the difference between this glove and the Druids S-ST Glove? May 14, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
ROBB N: The Druids version has (1) the "Micro-Injected Palm Insert" (which is supposed to provide better grip, and (2) the Poly/Carbon-Fiber knuckle protection extends farther across the back of the hand instead of just the knuckles. These are both terrific gloves. I considered both of them, but decided to save the difference and went with the Carbon Cover. I'm not disappointed. They fit well and feel great, and are very well-made. May 14, 2014
Reply to ROBB Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Christopher T: Druids are more expensive with more cf paneling. Aside that they are close. If u notice there's only one panel of cf across the knucks, the Druid has further more cF for the top side of your hand and the wrist lockdown strap is reverse and longer. I love my carbons tho, def a huge step up from the mesh and lightweight stuff without being cumbersome May 14, 2014

Alberto H: Revzilla asked me to answer your remark. Obvious I can't check their stock. The gloves are fantastic. Two weeks ago I left the right hand somewhere, during a long trip. Right away I order a new pair of the same Dainese gloves. Mine are black and white. It is not black as almost all byke garments. The white gives it elegance (italians have good taste. It is not shocking. Buy it, will like it Mar 14, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi, I was wandering about the size for me, I have Alpinestars SP-8 gloves and they are size XL , so would you say that I would take a size XL in these Dainese carbon cover s-st gloves? Also what sort of charges for mailing to Canada. Thanks Lee Burns Dec 11, 2013

arif s: The sizing is True. I would say you will be fine with the XL . They will need to be slighlty broken in but once they are they feel great. Great set of gloves. Although I had to send mine back for warrenty issue. I would recommend these for quality and fitment. Jan 5, 2014

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.
