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.
Composite inserts in carbon on the knuckles
Distortion Control on little finger
Ergonomics and Comfort:
Adjustable cuff strap
Breathable waterproof GORE-TEX® membrane with X-TRAFIT™ product technology
Stated Sizing is Correct
Just a quick note to say that contrary to the other info / reviews for this product they seem to be made to size. I ordered a size above my normal glove size and they were way too big.

exactly as described.
good protection all around, and easy to break-in. provides good grip as well. however, i wouldn't ride with these under 50 degrees. there is no liner, so it gets cold. gore-tex does a wonderful job in keeping your hands dry.

Great overall rain/cool weather glove
Expensive but extremely well made. as promised the inside is bonded with the outside so you feel no inner lining. the fingers and thumbs were all sized (i had x-large) correctly so no fingers were pinched. even with some death grip riding, no problems with fit. didnt ride in hard rain but appear to be rain proof. they do provide comfort to lower temps since they are tight with the water lining. only issue i had was knuckle protector area appears to be a square insert and doesnt mold well to the knuckles. was not uncomfortable but you can feel it more than you should. but no discomfort. wore on FJR with grip puppies for 1000 miles last weekend and had no discomfort. when temps get above 75 they become warm but still wearable. overall a super high quality glove with a lot of versatility and temp range. i think it was worth the extra money.

These are great wet weather spring through fall gloves. Make sure you pay attention to the review here because Anthony is right on. He says if you normally wear a large order the extra large and he is correct. I have ridden in the rain a couple times and your hands stay dry....need to get into a couple of torrential downpours though to really test them out. I have good throttle control with these because there is no "Liner" which is what I was looking for.

A little small, but overall very good gloves
The gloves are good, I would normally use size L, I bought L and they are smaller then other LARGE gloves.
The result of this is that the fingers are sligtly to small, and my little finger have some problems holding the handles for longer periods of time.
I hope the gloves will break in,
Other than that the gloves are great.

Top quality and style
I just recieved these gloves from Revzilla (another flawless delivery) and they exceed my expectations. The quality, style, and technical aspects are all well above par for the price.
The detailing is amazing. The only small flaw is the elastic fabric placement between the hardpart and cuff twists the leather a little. Other than that these gloves are perfect.

Have a functionality, fit, or otherwise product-specific question about the Dainese Contact Gore-Tex Gloves? Ask it here!
If you have a customer service or shipping question, please direct it to our Customer Service department.
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.Aug 16, 2013
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
Edward G:The gloves i bought have the liner attached to the leather outside as advertised. . i feel no liner when fingers inserted and love the gloves. your gloves sound defective. u should feel no separate liner. Aug 16, 2013
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
