Dainese Contact Gore-Tex Gloves

Raindrops pounding against your visor, your tires are slipping on the wet asphalt, but your wrist is steady and keeps the bike under control. Driving over a mountain pass in the pouring rain takes no little concentration and an excellent grip on the handlebars, especially with a sports bike between your legs. The Contact gloves are designed for the most athletic riders who need waterproof gloves capable of an incomparably guaranteed grip on the handlebars.  X-TRAFIT™ technology with its a GORE-TEX® membrane glued directly to the outside of the glove, helps to avoid the slipping over the internal padding on the palm whenever the hand turns. 

This is an excellent choice as a waterproof warm and cool (spring / fall) weather glove.  It does not have a thermal lining.

Job O asked: Hi

i already bought dainese scout goretex, but I HATE ITS lining inside, its hard to insert you fingers
because the cloth inside is slipping.
also scout goretex gloves is too thick, its hard to grip the handlebar.

my question is, how thin is this contact goretex gloves from outside to inside?
is it one layer material where no extra liners inside?

because i want one layer thin gloves for easier hand insert and comfortable handle bar grip.

ben s: The Contact glove is more geared towards colder riding weather. I would say its around double the thickness of regular Dainese leather gloves. The "liner" is non-removeable, and stays within the glove, making it fairly easy getting on and off. The inside is almost fleece like in texture, and if your hands are sweaty, which they will get in this glove, then it gets more difficult to take on/off. You still have a fairly good feel of controls, but for me it's too warm for summer riding. Since purchasing them, I have used then twice, in about 25 celcius, and they are a little on the warm side, and my hands were sweating a bit. I would ideally like a thinner gore tex glove, but this is still a good offering. Hope this helps. Aug 17, 2013

Eric M: The Contact gloves do not have thermal insulation, so I expect they are "thinner" than the Scout. They were a little thicker than my non-goretex summer gloves, but easy to get used to, even throughout the Florida summer.

The gore-tex lining is bonded to the inside of the glove, so that is not a separate layer. They do however have a cloth-like comfort liner that is not 100% attached. It does not really move around, but does make it a little difficult to put the gloves on with sweaty hands. The comfort liner has actually torn a bit in my gloves.

Gerald O: Job O,

I just bought these gloves and they are great! There is not multiple layers inside the gloves so no need to worry about anything slipping, its just one layer from inside to outside. As far as there thickness goes I think they are perfect, they are thin enough to were you can sill feel what you are doing and the handle bar grip is great. One thing i will mention which you might already know, these gloves do not breathe at all! Mind you they are waterproof and gotex so it is kind of to be expected. Hope this helps, goodluck!

Antony A: I've owned the Contact Goretex gloves for a while now. They are beautiful and well designed. I use them in the fall and winter and have never gotten wet or cold. They are thin enough and have an awesome grip for great handling. The only down side is after a while the inside layer does tend to slip a little when taking them off, but not too bad. I bought the Scalpel gloves for the spring/summer because these were too hot. Hope that helps! Aug 16, 2013

Richard H: Well there not as thick as other goretex gloves that I've had, but they are thicker than their Full metal race gloves. I've had no issues with the liners slipping and I have some thick fingers. Having said all that. The biggest issue I have with them is the gauntlets. They JUST make it over my race jacket let alone my cold weather gear. Aug 16, 2013

A shopper asked: I'm torn between the Dainese Contact and the Stelvio-ST. Can you help me choose? Jan 25, 2012

RevZilla: Although both the Dainese Contact and Stelvio have Gore-Tex linings, the Stelvio has more insulation and is geared more towards winter riding. The Contact is perfect for Spring, Summer, and Fall inclement weather or milder winters. May 3, 2012

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.
