Dainese Druids S-ST Gloves 4.7 5 34 34
Pricey, but good protection in crash I've had a pair of these for a year now and they've been through it all - hard riding, heavy rain, and a crash. At this point the leather has worn in to baby softness, and the gloves still fit extremely well. There's plenty of mobility in the wrist and fingers, so I never feel like the gloves are holding me back, but with the protection of knuckle, side, and palm sliders, I know I'm well armored too. Speaking of which, I recently took a spill on a windy road and got to test the gloves in action. I didn't land hand-first, but at some point my hand did make hard contact with the road, and the palm slider did its job - there's a nice scratch on it, and a few wear marks on the glove fingers as I tumbled. Not a scratch or bruise on my hand underneath though. I didn't even know my hand hit the ground until I saw the minor damage to the glove. The only downside I can see with these gloves is the lack of wrist protection in a slide. It would be pretty easy for a jacket sleeve to get pushed up in a fall, and these gloves do nothing to protect your forearm against road rash. They also do a poor job blocking wind from getting up your sleeves, which can be annoying in brisk weather. But that's why I own backup gloves with extended cuffs. These are and will continue to be my primary sport gloves - they are the best possible combination of protection and flexibility I've seen anywhere. August 27, 2015
Fit, form, function- Check! These gloves are awesome! I got a small (I'm only 5'4" for reference) and they fit perfectly when my hands are curved, but are a bit large with my hand extended flat. I've almost had them for a year now and there is very little wear on them-only the pad under the thumb in the palm of the glove is starting to show any signs of use. The gloves feel very solid and I am confident they will do their job well if I do go down. For a black leather glove they do flow plenty of air, but can get quite warm in anything over 70° in traffic, even with the perforation, I have worn them in 35-40° for my 10 mile commute to work and they were still fine, though the thumbs were numb afterwards. (Naked bike, no fairing) Overall I would highly recommend this glove. It is very comfortable, stylish and offers a great amount of protection for a shorter glove. April 11, 2015
Great Gloves! Dainese Druids S-ST Gloves are a great street glove for those who want technical features in the comfort of a non-gauntlet glove. The leather is supple and the initial fit was good however the Dainese Druids S-ST Gloves often rub against the sleeves of the Dainese SUPER SPEED C2 PELLE Estivo jacket that I wear. Also the Dainese Druids S-ST Gloves often "creep" down your hand leaving a gap at your fingertips (which could be caused by the jacket cuff pushing against them). I live in California and have ridden with these gloves in 39 degree temps without being too cold-I expect these gloves to do well in the high-desert summer as well. Overall I'm glad I purchased the Dainese Druids S-ST Gloves and they are a great replacement to the Dainese FOUR STROKE Gloves I have used for the past two years. February 24, 2015
No regrets. Best gloves I have ever owned. So I finally pulled the trigger and got me a pair. I had been wearing Foxx, Icon Pursuit and the Overlord Resistance gloves. Pulling the Druids on, I am quickly reminded of all the stupid speeds I'd pulled on my Blackbird all the while with sub par protection. My knees went wobbly at the thought of it. The gloves fit pretty spot on - at least for my left hand - the right was a bit more snug probably due to years of tennis which meant the hand was slightly larger. Took about six ish rides to break into and all is good. I got caught in a few heavy storms with it and while its not waterproof, it held pretty well with no water seeping in. It is an overall comfortable to wear in temperatures over 100 despite being a thick leather non perforated glove. This feeling of absolute invincibility is hard to describe. The amount of protection baked in on the palm and knuckles etc makes me kind of go ... a little faster and much lower. It might be a psychological thing but hey I feel a heck of a lot more protected in these mitts than my Icon Overlord resistance gloves that are next to useless if I went down. It comes to the point where, I'm thinking , " Ah well, if anything happens, I'll just slide". That hardened palm slider thingy is quite tough - works wonders for one's confidence. The Rossi tickler as Anthony loving calls it is pretty useful. I do not see myself going back to Icon gloves. I love these mitts so much so I am a Dainese convert. Special thanks to Gear Geek John K for the recommendation! February 21, 2015
Great Product Coming up on my second full season with the Druid s-st's and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Wear is very minimal after 10k on the bike and comfort and fit is spot on. A little pricey for a short cuff glove but I feel very secure riding the street. Styling in my opinion is top notch, love the aggressive style of the glove. 9/10 would buy again. January 31, 2015
Mixed feelings...read on After quite a bit of research, I zeroed in on the Dianese 4 Stroke EVO...but those are sold out in all colors (at this writing) so I ordered the Druids, because they seem to be almost identical - the main difference being that the 4 Strokes have metal sliders on the knuckles whereas the Druids have a big piece of carbon fiber. It seems that the higher end designs are moving away from exposed carbon fiber; it's super light and has terrific structural integrity, but as it grinds down in a crash apparently it can grip instead of slide as metal does. Putting that issue aside, I was hopeful that the Druids would be a great choice because I wanted a short glove that would be easy on/off, a lot of armor, but still be comfortable and agile for 3 season warm. I know, I want it all, right? There are a lot of things right about this glove. The wrist slider, goatskin, and reinforced stiching give me a lot of confidence that this glove would protect me in on a very bad day and I was hopeful that the microfiber would ensure comfort. Ultimately, I sent this one back due to the following issues (and I'm setting aside the exposed carbon fiber, because that's something I could live with --having CF is much better than not having any knuckle protection or just plastic): 1. The big hunk of beefy protection on the back of the hand and knuckle area doesn't 'float' and really seemed to dig in to the back of my hand when I grab throttle. I could probably get used to it, but it's a distraction to me. If that doesn't bother you, then you can take comfort in having the rough equivalent of a bulletproof vest and ceramic plate strapped to the back of your hand. 2. My wrists are narrower than average, and the velcro clasp on this is constrained in terms of how far it will enable you to secure the glove around your arm. For me, there is just a sizable loose gap there, and I am not confident it would stay secure in a drop. So bottom line is, this is a great glove with a lot of protection, and a price to let you know they are proud of their work. It's probably better than 90% of the short gloves out there, but I feel that it needs more refinement from Dianese before it gets a couple hundred bones from me. I think I'm going to try the Held Short Race...but I'm really looking forward to the Dianese X-Strike whenever that hits Revzilla. From the previews of that glove, they seem to be applying lessons learned to new products quickly. Oh one more tip -- I'm an 8 in Held, a M in A-Star, but a S in Dianese....order down in size if you're going in. November 12, 2014
Best short cuff I ever owned These glove are simply put superior to any other short cuff glove I own. They look good, feel good, and are very comfortable even on the long rides. The fit is very american, I wear a medium in Icon and the medium Druids fit me spot on. The only weird thing is the partial cuff that holds the strap and wrist protection, I cant seem to find a good way for it to interact with my jacket. My jacket often ends up in awkward positions around the wrist. Also the Rossi tickler on the plams takes a while to get used to but other than that these gloves are solid, but a bit pricey I highly recommend these over the 4 stroke EVOS or any other glove September 30, 2014
Awesome Pair This is my first real set of gloves. The fit and comfort of these are amazing along with the protection they come with. Great investment in my book. September 29, 2014

Thomas S: It all depends on your hand size. Glove size etc. but a rough estimate is 1.5 inches. It's a short amount of coverage, but then again it's marketed as a short glove. Hope this helped. Aug 25, 2014

Kendall S: I can't speak too much about specific size comparison, but you should know these gloves definitely break in and loosen up. I was in the middle of 2 sizes, and I made a good choice going smaller. Also, if you're not sure about these gloves, I would recommend them. Comfortable and great protection. I lowsided about 8 mph, and the leather did not tear but only had minor scuffs and the knuckle just had a little piece broken out of it. Another great dainese product. Nov 14, 2013
