Dainese Full Metal Pro Gloves
Top of the line, as expected from Dainese
These are moto GP gloves used by Valentino Rossi without his team colors. If they protect the doc they will protect you.
Excellent craftsmanship, top materials (carbon fiber, kevlar, titanium and premium lether). Take only a few hours to break in, and vent very good. Not recommended for very cold weather, they will not keep you warm.
Bought them at a close out, get them while you can.

Brilliant Race Quality Gloves From Dianese
As the break in period began I was struck by the tactical placement of the "Racing Glove" areas of protection and features. Now, nearly one month later the gloves have begun a perfect molding to my hands and are absolutely brilliant in everyway imaginable. if you desire a flawlessly designed-wonderfully packaged set of gloves, logon to Revzilla and purchase the gloves. You won't be disappointed...

The only real con I can hit these gloves with is that they fit small on me, even after break in. Though saying "small" might be mispoken as it was more like they never fit the shape of my hands. I never actually got comfortable in them. On the plus side, they are excellent quality and very protective. I crashed tested them in a low side and while I did tear open some seams and mangle the gloves, I didn't get so much as a bruise or a scratch on my hands. All in all, well worth it if you find them comfortable.

Got the gloves a few months back and immediately fell in love with them. I ordered a small in black with yellow stitching and was amazed at the attention to detail. Leather is soft and supple but sturdy feeling.
It has an aggressive pre-curve to the fingers which kinda breaks in after while but not by much. My finger tips touched the seams at the tip of the gloves and that annoyed me a lot. I wish they move the seams or made them external. Other than that the glove was very comfortable to wear.
I crashed wearing these gloves at the track and i can vouch for their protective qualities. Even though the leather is soft it did a good job protecting my hands. Only damage was a small heat blister at the tip of one finger and bruise on the top of my left thumb. I hope in future versions of their gloves they add more padding/protection to the bottom joint of your thumb. Everything else did their job, palm sliders work well, knuckle sliders worked well too. All in all an excellent glove.

I bought the 2XL gloves and they look great and offer the best protection, however after a half an hour of riding I found my hands were very sore at the knuckles. I found the one piece steel plate on the gloves (at the knuckles) pushes my knuckle inwards when Im riding. I continued wearing the gloves for 6 months for the 'breaking in' period but made no difference. I ended up getting a pair of alpinestars 365GTX which are alot more comfortable. Just not as exciting.

Quite simply the best track gloves I have ever worn.
The construction is sold! As you work your way around the glove is so much attention to detail. Style is amazing as well.

So good I want another pair.
I've been wearing these gloves for about 8 months now.
These are very comfortable, protective and well worth the price.
When I first opened the package I was a bit dismayed because it looked like the yellow kevlar stiching around each digits were very uncleanly finished. There were a lot of small loops of kevlar everywhere. It didn't seem like there were any in the review video. But being what they are, they are extremely tough and don't tear off or fray. I still do wish it looked cleaner however.
I originally got a large pair of these and then exchanged them for a medium. Looking back I should have gotten small.
I have fairly wide hands and it was very difficult to put on even the large size but I knew it was too long for my fingers.
Medium size gloves did fit very well at first in the fingers and quite tight for my palms but when they broke in, fingers were too long and palms were just right (I can fit glove liners in them#.
I prefer the end of each digits to touch the glove when in riding position but now there is enough room to bother me when I'm going for the brake or clutch levers.
Other than the size and the stitching #which I am convinced it's suppose to look so) every aspect of these gloves amazes me. Looks great, great protection, well venting durable and did I mention great looking?
Well worth the price.

Having crashed 2x. Thank God i was wearing all my gears. Seeing this product and actually wearing it is totally worth the price. Your life and my life is worth more than a few thousand dollars in investment for gears. Go all out, get the best protection out there coz at the end of the day you'll say i'm glad i walked away from that crash unscade. Ride safe
