Dainese Pro Metal RS Gloves 4.6 5 9 9
Good starter track gloves I was looking for a pair of gloves to use on the track and ran into these gloves. A step down from the the full metal pro RS. But they have all the features one would need for a decent paced track day. They do lack the slider details on the gauntlet or the wrist area where instead you'll find foam padding. I bought these in a color Red that's not offered on Revilla. Also, in the first two weeks of using these gloves when they were still breaking in, I ended up with a bloody cuts on my fingers just from the internal stitching. After two weeks of regular use, they broke in so well I barely even know they're on. They're a little bulky to carry around when running errands so I use my other A*Stars commuter summer gloves. All in all a good product! Great bang for the buck with all the slider details and re enforced Kevlar stitching! April 12, 2014
Break In, Ride, Enjoy So out the bag, the gloves have a very boxy feel to them. I would recommend wearing them for a day or two around the house to break them in. Once they are broken in however, they give feel incredible feel and decent protection when you ride. I use use to have the full metal pro's and I can honestly say these are a way better value. Unlike the full metal pro's these do not have the carbon/titanium on the back of the hand, which is actually a plus when it comes to comfort and control. In my experience, I got better throttle response from these gloves over the full metal pro. The downside is that they don't offer as much protection as the top of line model, but you do get a lot of value for the price. November 30, 2013
its dianese comfortable once you get them broken it. protection where you need it. great for track use. September 5, 2013
Awesome Gloves I purchased these gloves because I loved the way they looked and they offered a ton of features. I have ridden in them for over a month and they have broken in very nicely. They I wear a Med in Joe Rocket and Alpine stars so I ordered a Med...thought that they were a bit big, and almost set them back for a smaller size. Glad I didn't, they broke in and have become perfect, a smaller size would have made them way too tight. I didn't mark them 5 stars for protection or durability, frankly because I haven't crashed in them, and I haven't had them long enough to judge the durability. The air flow it little, there are holes between the fingers, but i don't really notice that they are there. I'll take a gloves a little on the warm side with the offset for protection and features. I love these gloves! August 29, 2013
Good Gloves. It takes some time to break it in, at first it will make your hands soar because of force applied to grip the bike. It will take some 5 to 8 rides before the gloves gets little loose. August 27, 2013
Great glove! My first Dainese gloves - I have had many other brands and more other Dainese products over the years. They quality of the glove is way beyond most other gloves on the market. Quastanding quality and protection! The gloves are a bit stiff and take a little effort to put on and take off although who cares. One of the best gloves in this price catagory! August 26, 2013
Comfortable, for a serious glove. These are, within the realm of highly protective gloves, very comfortable. But that's a little bit like being the tallest midget. They are thick on the back side, kind of stiff, and all the protective hardware is noticeable while you wear them. Which is what you're paying for. In spite of that the palms and fingertips give enough dexterity to operate zippers and switches. The foam backing the knuckle plate can feel too thick, but seems to conform to your hand quickly. It's almost like a very stiff version of memory foam mattress material. The gloves fit small. I haven't got huge hands and XL is just right with no room for liners underneath. Measure as directed, and if you're on the margin go up a size. Speedy, but well made. August 19, 2013
Fits like... um... a glove I wear a XXL glove and even many of those don't fit (I have really long fingers but delicate hands - guitar-player hands that women love). These Pro Metal RS felt a bit stiff on arrival, and maybe a bit short on the left hand pinky. Took 'em out in the canyons for a couple of hours on a hot day and they broke in nicely. Short spot gone and they now flex pretty easily. Another couple of hours and I'm sure they'll feel like my hands were born inside them. Air flow isn't much, if anything - they aren't perforated. I didn't mind, especially. Had protection looks very robust - armored along the knuckles and the outer palm. The wrist-tension strap is itself protected by a leather flap. They sure look up to the task. Haven't crashed in 'em (and may I never), so 'protection & durability' is an unknown. Taking them to the track later in August and hope to report back that I still don't know about their protection level. FYI, I'm coming from a cafe racer world and am making my way into sport riding - these are my first "trackable" gloves. Thanks Revzilla for the great service. July 22, 2013

D A: How much are my hands worth?I believe that if I'm going to engage in one of the most dangerous hobbies/sports I had better wear some decent protection and give myself the best chance possible in minimizing whatever injury might occur in the event of a crash on the street or track day/training...without going into full pro race wear!

Frederick H asked: I ride 100mi a day, 5 days a week and I'd like a full gauntlet that is also track-worthy. Because I spend so much time with them on (2hrs a day) I don't want to wear them out (I've stretched out my last two pair...). I'll make the investment, I just don't want to get top of the line only to have them stretched out too quick. Track days are few and far between. Some padding in the palm is nice as well. Are these the gloves to get, or would you recommend something else? Jan 21, 2014

Adam W: Im not sure Id recommend these for commuting. These are a very robust pair of gloves and while they have excellent sensitivty on the controls, the are fairly stiff and the fit is optimized for committed riding. They are not waterproof, the fit is ideally very close so adding liners for warmth would be very tight. For the track, or backroad rides, theses are fantastic and very comfortable - for an armored glove. As others have noted they do run small, so order up at least a size maybe two.

Ive used Elkskin Ropers from Aerostich for regular rides for a long, long time. They are sensitive to pick up change off a tabletop but still robust enough to protect in a normal speed get off. They take waterproofing very well, but also dry out quickly.

Bottom line: these are track gloves that you could obviously use commuting, but you'd maybe be comromising comfort, warmth, and dryness. Just like I wouldn't recommend commuter gloves on the track, I wouldn't recommend these track gloves for commuting.

Thomas J: I haven't tried anything else, so I haven't much to compare to.

However I ride short trips all over town to pick up parts, order parts, and that sort of thing. Kind of like a motorcycle courier. That is to say, I have the gloves on/off about 8 times per day. Taking them on and off requires pulling pretty hard on the wrist leather to yank them down on my hands (rather tight in the wrist, but lots of room in the hands.)

So far, they have held up fine for months. No signs of stitches letting go. It's also hot here (75* ambient, every day (Hawaii)) -- my hands sweat a bit, so I'm quite pleased how the gloves have form-fit to my hands and do not appear to be stretching much or loosening up after the initial 'break in.'

I'd recommend them, but once again -- I haven't much to compare with as these are my first real sportbike gloves. After 5 months, no complaints whatsoever.

Good luck.

Rajarshi D: I've Put 3000 Kms On These Gloves So Far (Riding Season Is Very Short Up Here). They Did Stretch Out A Bit But I Would Just Call That Part Of Breaking In. Aside From That I Can't Complain Of Any Exaggerated Stretching. Only Thing I Feel These Gloves FeLl Short At Was The Finishing Details - The Threads From The Seams Couldve Been Cleaned Up Better Considering Its Dainese After All. But Otherwise, A Great Pair Of Gloves In My Opinion. Hope This Helps! Jan 21, 2014

Jacob H: Not quite sure what you mean by stretched out, but I'll try to answer anyways. I ride about 80mi a day. I like the gloves, but they don't have a whole lot of padding in the palms and thumbs, so my hands would get sore if I wasn't watching my riding position. They always seemed to fit just right, and after they were broken in they felt awesome. Plus, you feel pretty tough when you have them on, so that's a bonus! Jan 21, 2014

Karsten K: Fred,

I purchased these gloves in August 2003. I don't ride nearly as much as you, but I will say I have spent a full 21 days riding for 10 hours a day in these gloves. I have had no trouble with them loosing shape or stretching. They still look and feel even better than brand new at this point. Hope it helps. I would buy them again at this point. Karsten.

John S: I have only rode mine once as they are tight getting on and off. Once they are on they fit well and are very will thought out and made so I expect a long life with them. They will break in as my old gloves are a little loose now. Jan 21, 2014
