Dainese Steel Core Carbon Gloves

Continuous innovation and experience on racetracks around the world have lead to the development of the Dainese Steel Core Carbon racing glove. Excellent ergonomics are matched with equivalent safety levels against abrasion and tearing thanks to the Kevlar jersey,construction. In addition a single panel of leather for the protector of the stitching on the little finger side of hand, and the reinforced palm round out the protective nature of the Steel Core Carbon. Protection against shock is provided thanks to the new steel inserts faced with extraordinarily stiff carbon, the little finger construction reinforced with internal inserts and Distortion Control. Futhermore, the Steel Core Carbon gloves include inserts on the knuckles, the back of the hand, the palm, and head of the ulna.


  • Composite inserts in stainless steel faced with carbon fiber on the knuckles and the back of the hand Inserts in thermoplastic resin on the knuckles and the back of the hand
  • Polyethylene inserts at the base of the fingers
  • Inserts in thermoplastic polyurethane on the outside of the little finger, the top of the ulna bone and the palm

Dainese Steel Core Carbon Gloves 4.7 5 25 25
Very comfortable, stylish and an excellent quality I was after gloves that had a good protection for the back of hand (after breaking metacarpal bones) and initially wanted to get a Dainese Full Metal Pro, but found them too restrictive as the largest size they come in is XL. I am normally an XL with other brands, but Dainese seems to be a tad on the smaller side. Then i cam across Steel Core Carbon gloves. These are cheaper and they come in 2XL which fits perfectly. Back of hand protection feels more than sufficient, ventilation between fingers feels good (although you have to spread the fingers slightly to get the air flow), and they are very comfortable. My only concern is that there might not be enough protection for the wrist - my hands easily move through the whole range of motion without any restriction. I have tried other gloves that had wider and stiffer wrist guards, but then they had other drawbacks. Overall i am happy with these and hopefully i won't have to test them the hard way.

Best glove out there in my book Great glove. Very comfortable and stylish. Dainese baby! April 22, 2013
Excellent Gloves After trying on a number of gloves at the Philly store I decided on the Steel Core model. They fit my smaller hands - and shorter fingers - very well and have a lot of protection for the street riding I do. The quality of the materials and the level of finish are superb. They were very comfortable during my first ride and I'm sure it will just get better. I can also comment on the air flow - which is quite good. During my ride last week my hands got chilled rather quickly in light of the low temperatures. In the summer heat I think they will work out well. Overall, I'm very pleased with my decision. Well worth the investment. April 1, 2013
Great styling and fit Gloves entry is a little snug, but once your hand is in, it fits true to size. Leather is not too soft or too hard, so minimal break in is required. My only complain is you can feel the metal plate on top of the hand when you make a fist. Otherwise it is not noticeable when you are riding. Good ventilation and styling. December 18, 2012
Great Comfort I tried the full metal pros and these gloves are much better. They are very comfortable November 5, 2012
Great Product Great product, very comfortable. Protection is pretty well. Definitely a better quality glove than my previous Alpinestars. Not a glove I recommend using in degrees under 55. The air flow is very well, so in low temperatures your hands are bound to freeze. Learned that the hard way this past weekend. All in all high recommend this glove. October 1, 2012
Track Protection You Can Wear On The Street After hearing a guy talk about the pinky sliders saving his finger in a get off at the track, I upgraded to a pair. The feelings of heightened protection and connection to the controls were such improvements over other gloves I have that I switched to wearing these full time, even just for short jaunts around town. Plus, they look good enough that I may have to upgrade my jacket to keep fashion levels consistent. I will have to say that one of the knuckle protectors was digging into my finger at first, but I forgot which one. After unintentionally getting caught in a heavy rain, the fit became perfect. For fit comparison, I do have the kind of long, slender fingers that would make me a prime candidate for playing the piano, if I had any musical talent. September 17, 2012
Moto GP Protection After destroying my previous pair of gloves in a crash got these and I realized why most riders in Moto GP use Dainese gloves... Excellent protection! August 29, 2012

Blackhawk: I don't think they are made in Italy anymore and it shows because the leather used is not the same as the leather used in years past. Probably made in Vietnam, Singapore, or Thailand. Jun 9, 2012

darren m asked: Hi all,

I have a question on fit and sizing. I wear an XL in the 2011 full gauntlet Druids and an XL in the REVIT Phantom GTX. In recent years, Dainese has been moving to more 'American' sizing (I learned this from Anthony). I'm wondering if I'd fit into a size L in the Steel Core Carbons?

Thanks for any insights you might have.

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.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross 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.
