Dedicated to touring riders who crave adventure, who are in search of dirt roads and boundless spaces like the bends of mountain passes, and who are not afraid of changing weather conditions. Veleta offers an unparalleled feel on the handlebar through the use of X-TRAFIT™ technology with a waterproof breathable GORE-TEX® membrane glued directly to the outside of the glove to prevent it from slipping in relation to the inside of the palm when the hand is rotated. With Techno™ inserts, metal mesh on the knuckles / fingers, and Distortion Control on the little finger, this glove offers a high level of protection even for the most demanding touring riders in terms of comfort.

I've only had them for fall/winter, which in Texas isn't saying much. I suspect there might be some ventilation issues in the summer though.

Great fall weather gloves
wanted something between my hot weather summer gloves and my deep winter gloves. these seem to fit right in there. they kept my hands worm and dry during a 30min ride in mild rain. Not had a get off with them, but they seem durable and have nice protection. should last a good while.

Everything ya need - nuthin' ya don't.
I'm in the process of replacing all my "waterproof" gear with bona fide Gore Tex. I've been looking for a glove to use in the 60 to 80 degree range and all summer long in the wet. I wanted something to fill the void between my Alaska and Dirt gloves. The Veleta is more robust than it looks and has a strong pre-curved shape that feels good on the grips. The palm and knuckle protective elements you'd expect from Dianese are present. The gauntlets are made to fit easily under the cuffs but not over. The Gore Tex x-trafit membrane is bonded to the outer layer and the inner liner is minimal. I donned them in 92 degree heat and of course they were warm compared to my mesh gloves but the materials breathe so my hands did not get clammy. So far I think the Veleta is just what I was looking for - perfect for my intended use.

Comfortable dry gloves slightly long in fingers
These are my go-to gloves for damp or wet riding. They are comfortable and kept my hands dry and comfortable during a several hour ride through fog and rain in the NC mountains. The fingers are long for my hands but are better then most gloves. I could still operate my Garmin with the gloves on although helmet straps are a problem. The liner is bonded to the outer glove. This keeps the liner from coming out when taking the glove off and makes it easier to get the glove on. They are a vast improvement on my other pair where the leather outer get soaked and holds water so your hand eventually is wet and cold.

Just the gloves I was looking for
I have heated Gerbings, and textile mesh gloves, but wanted a short gauntlet fall/spring/rain glove. Called and spoke to John who directed me to these gloves. Just what I was looking for. Short gauntlet, Gortex and good protection. Use them down to the 40s with heated grips and they keep my hands dry. Like that the Gortex is bonded, keeping it in place when removing them.

marco l: i tried on tons of gloves to replace my old ones. these ones felt perfectly formed and comfortable right from the start. i was looking for a 3 season glove that was easy to pull on or off with simple adjust once closures.Aug 26, 2013
Daniel H asked:Regarding size. I'm a "perfect" Large in Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves, will the Dainese stretch that much that I would need to buy a Medium?Oct 28, 2013
Meleah G:From my experience - this summer riding thru AK - this is more of a molded glove with not much stretch to it. As a side note, it held up well in cold rainy weather and was not too hot in summer temps. I bought the white/blue. Hope this helps!Oct 29, 2013
