The Dainese Carbon GORE-TEX X-TRAFIT gloves have been specifically designed for sports-like, adventurous riders looking for waterproof gloves that keep them warm and dry whatever the weather conditions.
These gloves offer unparalleled feel on the grips thanks to the use of a waterproof, breathable GORETEX membrane featuring XTRAFIT technology, which means the membrane is attached directly to the outer surface of the gloves, thus preventing any potential sliding in the palm when the hand is rotated. The gloves are finished in cow hide and goatskin which provide excellent abrasion resistance and supple softness. The excellent protection is further ensured by reinforced palms, carbon fiber inserts over the knuckles, polyurethane inserts on the finger joints, the use of a Distortion Control system for the little fingers and soft inserts. This exceptional glove is rounded off with elasticized inserts at key points to ensure comfort in any riding position.

How much are nice warm hands worth to you?
Are these gloves expensive? Yes. Are the worth it? H*ll yes. It's real simple: these gloves do a great job insulating your hands from the elements without significantly compromising feel and control; they also offer full protection if you should go down, and look really good. As someone who rides all year round, at least until the Mercury drops below 20 F, these gloves have been a great investment. This is now my second winter riding with them (without heated grips!) and I couldn't be happier. I know that I could opt for electric gloves, but I really don't need to, and besides, they keep me comfy when off the bike as well.

These gloves are awesome!
I bought these gloves so I'd have something warm to ride in this winter season. Just yesterday I rode with them in the rain. I rode almost 70 miles and they kept me warm & dry the whole time!

Excellent Cold Weather Gloves
I'm sure there are warmer gloves out there. These provide decent warmth but a high level of protection. I needed gloves that could keep me warm, dry, and protected. I don't think there is another glove out there that can compete with all three requirements. Yes a bit pricey but well worth the investment. I also needed something that was not too colorful. I work in an office in NYC and do not need the extra colors. Size fits true to size, I usually wear a Medium in A-Stars but wanted the extra room in case I need to wear a thin profile glove liner underneath.

I live in Canberra and I was looking for a glove that could carry me through riding in the winter but also be usable in summer. These bad boys did it for me, kept my hands dry from the rain, kept the the cold out, felt super comfortable (slightly too small though, I think buying a bigger size would be too big) gave me confidence to ride crazy!! It's such a solid protective glove it almost makes you feel like you can kapow punch holes through anything! I also found no problem with wearing them on warmer days.

Fairly pricy, but quality in line with other Dainese products
Bought the same size as my other Dainese gloves and the fit is the same. Have yet to try them in the rain, which is what I bought these specifically for.

Mike E:I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I bought these gloves to use in winter here where it does not get too cold. Typical daytime temperature in winter about 15 Celsius (60 F). It does rains bit. My summer gloves are the Full Metal RS. The Carbon Gore-Tex are much warmer but have less feel. The leather has a protective coating which I guess is to give them water resistance which seems to work but when new it makes them a bit slippery It soon wears off enough to give better grip but again nothing like as good as the RS. I would find the Carbon Gore-tex gloves too warm in summer. Very happy with them for what I intended, fit well, nicely made and good protection.Jul 24, 2014
Could you estimate what temperatures you are referencing? 70s, 80s, 90s? Sorry, some people have different ideas of whats hot and whats cold. Its 9:30pm here and in the mid-70s, so you can imagine the days. It also rains frequently, thus my interest in these gloves, which seem to provide some of the best protection in a Gore-Tex glove that I've seen. Thanks.

I live in the Milwaukee, WI area. Purchased these gloves last spring. I have thus far ridden in the 70s and 80s with no issue. I wear full leathers and thus do not ride when it is very humid. The weather here has not reached the 90s.

Julian Andres C asked:I live in Colombia and as in any other tropical countries the weather is very variable, in a same day you can be up to 30°C and 10 min after in the middle of a heavy rain or get a drop of temp to 10°C in a 40 Km ride; the point is you can't wear a specific type of gloves and some of us don't like to carry a bunch of gloves just in case, I bought months ago the icon patrol but found them too warm, not rainproof enough and the inner layer is sometimes uncomfortable, specially with sweaty hands, so I went again looking for gloves for all weather, my question is, how does this gloves behave on cold (28°C) and in heavy rain?Jan 5, 2015
Robert L:No. It has a leather outer shell and a GoreTex liner, no insulating material. Because of the GoreTex liner that is totally windproof, it helps when in colder weather (I tested mine down to -2C/29F successfully). Flipside of this is that these gloves get steamy in warmer weather (like above 21C/70F), where I prefer a better ventilated glove like the Full Metal RS in dry conditions.Dec 10, 2014
A shopper asked:If the size large in the Dainese Carbon Gore-Tex fit your hand "like a glove", please share your hand measurement using the method demonstrated in the Dainese size chart? Thanks.Jul 28, 2014
