Beautiful and amazing
Bang for the buck: These gloves are not cheep. They are expensive but that said you can really see all the work that went into making them. Use of different materials, the quality of those materials and the way it’s all put together is truly exceptional.

Style: Dainese always makes (in my opinion) the most beautiful gear imaginable. I would consider my self a sport style rider so I personally love aggressive but restrained design. Unfortunately most sport motorcycle design is crazy and over the top. Dainese however always seems to nail it. The gloves are stunning to look at with their use of titanium, carbon fiber, Kevlar and premium hide. But the best part for me is how each piece is designed to be beautiful and functional.

Comfort: All new leather gloves need to be broken in and these are no exception. Having tried them on in a few stores i was worried they weren’t comfortable. But having gotten mine in the correct size and having a few rides to break them in I found these gloves to be nothing short of exceptional in regards to comfort.

Protection & Durability: fortunately I haven't had any crashes so I can't give a review on safety however the top guys in MotoGP use these and if it's good enough for them I'm pretty sure it's good enough for me. In regards to durability however I've had a pair of Dainese gloves for years now and they have held up tremendously. I expect with the better materials and Kevlar stitching that these gloves should hold up even better.

Features: Gloves are always tricky in regards to features. The “features” them selves are actually aspects of the design and construction that you mostly don’t see. In any case i’ll give it my best shot. These things are build solid especially compared to my four stroke gloves. It’s not always easy to see the difference but after a closer look it’s all their. Lets start with double stitching. On my old four stroke gloves the base stitching across the entire glove was single stitched with an unknown fabric. However with these nearly every bit of structural stitching is doubled. Better yet the thread is made of kevlar witch means these gloves are pretty darn strong. Speaking of Kevlar the whole backside of the glove has a layer of kevlar for added protection. Titanium! oh my god do they look good. I struggle to see in what crash position the knuckle sliders would really come into play but lets be real here… They just look amazing…

Fit: These gloves fit like… well… a glove. At first they feel stiff but after a few rides they start to feel perfect. The fit and finish on the inside of these is of corse even more important then the outside given their functionality and i really think they did a solid job. When i first got my old four stroke they initially felt balky but within about 15min i realized that i was able to be extremely delicate with my fingers even though i had them on. These Full Metal D1 Gloves are exactly the same and it really is amazing.

All in all: All in all i really haven’t seen anything better then these. Granted I love design which ends up playing a big part in what i value as important. However even the style aside these gloves are superb. The fit, finish and overall duality is really something to admire and id recommend anyone who is serious about safety, style and pushing their riding to the next level to look into them.

Amazing
As you know these are the top of the line gloves from Dainese, the gloves Rossi wears himself. The major difference between these and the old Full Metal gloves is that these are made from MUCH softer leather. Trying both on side by side at the Dstore in San Fran it was obvious these are softer, and it kind of depresses me how much more softer these are than my Dainese Carbon Cover STs I use daily haha. Anyway you will not be disappointed, trust me.

Protection at a price
Overview; High level of protection, average airflow, moderate comfort for gloves in its class.

Durability: 5,000 miles or so on these gloves, not falling apart yet.

Protection:
The armor is a mixture of carbon fiber sliders, plastic palm slider, wrist guard, multiple layers of leather in specific spots, and titanium knuckle/backhand plates. Only one wrist guard to cover the outside wrist bone. Pinky has a hardened layer over it. Pinky is not connected to the ring finger.

Airflow:
There are a perforation holes between the fingers of the gloves. 6;7,7;7,7;4 holes for a "L" glove. This is not as much as other gloves in the same category.
In 90*F+ weather touring riding with the glove is hot and sweaty (I usually ride for 8-14 hours when "touring").
In winter riding (45* or less), glove isn't insulated enough to keep fingers from getting cold or numb.
During track use, you don't notice the temperature as much because your gloves are off when not in use.

Comfort:
Glove is comfortable overall and is constructed with no odd pieces poking on the inside like a good biking glove.
Pinky gets tight, but I learned that if you make a tight fist, and then tighten the velcro straps, the glove doesn't rub on the pinky as much and has adequate slack for hand controls.
Glove feels soft on the inside but heavy from the protective bits and needs to be broken in properly. To break in all my leather gear I ride in the rain until they are dry.

Style: Personal opinion, The yellowish stitching is odd, and don't match my Dianese leathers. Otherwise, they look... "cool".

Bang for Buck: Expensive, and you can get other gloves that look as good or are just as protective. If you are like me and have a Dianese suit that absolutely must match, then a good alternative is the Dianese Druid.

Great glove but uncomfortable
I wanted to these so bad. Love the protection. Best looking glove on the market. The biggest downside is these gloves were killing my pinkie finger, especially the right pinky for some reason. I tried another pair hoping it was just a manufacturing defect but same exact issue even after just a few minutes. Maybe you have to be made of "Full Metal" to wear them. I bought the Alpine Stars GP Pro instead which is so much more comfortable. They dont look as good as the Full Metal D1 but they dont dig into my pinkie finger either. The GP Pro is what I wear everyday & on track days. It's a great glove. Better ventilation & the GP Pros wrist protection is better too. I own other Dianese gloves as well as a leather jacket & Laguna SECA racing suit, love Dianese products, if they fix the Full Metal D1 I'll be back.

Look great & Protective.. but 0 durability.
Dont get me wrong, the gloves were great.
They protected my hands up until they fell apart, 4,000km in.
I oiled and protected the gloves, but i would STRONGLY recommend these for light track use.

Great Track Glove
So now I have 20+ hours in these it's time for a review. The good and the bad.

I was tossing between these and the Alpinestars Supertechs. I loved the look of both and they both offer good protection but in slightly different ways using different technology. When trying them both on in the store the Alpinestars had the edge on comfort although the fingers are long for the sizing of glove. That aside I initillay chose the Alpinestars. After a couple days of riding they were super comfy and the palm is so thin that honestly it feels like there is no leather at all between your hands and the grips, you could feel the slightest grove in your grips, personally I found it a little weird but cool, but I just couldn't put aside how long the fingers were, they were getting in the way when shifting and braking, so luckily I was able to return them to the walk in store I bought them from and then went with these Dianese sacrificing initial comfort.

Let me say that I have no regrets with the above decision. After having them broken in they are great, and I do feel the protection is probably a little better than the Alpinestars.

Pro's
-Great protection
-Fit is true (Thumb is long but they're designed this way, it's fine)
-Reasonably comfy
-Very light (Not as light as Supertechs tho)
-They look good (apart from the kevlar stitching)
-They're Dianese
-I never had the issue with the pinky that others do (although it is very stiff, I find this distracting for casual street use, but twisties and track it is unoticeable)
-I actually find the stiff pinky MORE comfy than Alpinestars bridging system)
-While airflow is low, they're surprisingly comfy to wear through a large variety of temperatures, from quite cold to quite warm. And honestly, who cares about sweaty hands at the track, that's going to happen regardless on warm days in leather working it out.
-Tactile response is adequete considering level of protection

Cons
-The kevlar stitching looks really out of place on the black glove, and it does just start falling out reasonably quickly as others have mentioned, but I don't believe that it's overly important stitching, it's kind of for back up, and to be honest the glove will look better once it all falls out!!)
-The pinky is very stiff (Not at all painful, and I honestly forget about it entirely during spirited riding)
-The little rubber grip part on the palm is a little annoying at times, but again, I completely forget about it during spirited riding, but honestly, just get rid of it Dianese.

Overall I really can't find any big faults. For every day riding you can sacrifice a little bit of the protection for comfort and ease of getting in and out of. But for a glove for when you hit the twisties and/or track, I highly recommend them.
If you're like me and don't mind paying a premium for riding gear so long as you do get what you pay for, you'll be happy. I picked them up on special and am very glad I swapped my Supertechs for these.

Great Glove with Cool Factor
I have previously owned two Rossi versions of this glove. With each version they become more refined. This latest version is now state of the art. The fit is a little tight to begin with but quickly brakes in. I am a size 9.5 which equates to XL in this glove as well as most other manufactures. My only complaint is that both thumbs are about 10mm to long for me but the rest of the fingers are spot on and fit perfectly. The inside seams are not bothersome and the overall fit is very comfortable. I had a high-speed crash back in 2000 with a pair of Dainese race gloves... I only wish these had been around back then.

Hands down the best gloves
No these gloves are not cheap, and yes they are essentially a consumable item, but they are worth every penny. I bought these gloves to replace my 2 season old alpine stars. I went off of the alpine star sizing and got the size equivalent from Dainese. I have used these gloves for the entire summer/fall/winter (until it got too cold for them) and they are amazing. The leather is soft and supple, metal knuckles are not intrusive at all, and the ventilation is quite nice. If you're looking for a top shelf glove that protects as well as performs in your hand these are it.

I bought these to replace a pair of Dainese Full Metal Pro gloves that had been used almost daily for one year and eight months. The Pros were beginning to break down at flex points and between the thumb and back of the hand areas. I wish they had lasted longer, but the price works out to 66 cents per day for the most comfortable and protective glove I've owned.

I'm wondering what size would be best for me. I currently wear an XL in the Alpinestars GP Pro gloves and they fit perfectly (after breaking in). According to the size chart I should get a Large for the D1's but am unsure if the Large is comparable size wise to the GP Pro XL. Should I get L or XL?
A shopper on May 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For me, the Alpine stars are made for skinny hands, and Dainese made for wider palms, I take XL in these but equivalent in Alpine stars is 3XL
Can you use these gloves for street use in a summer environment? I'm wondering about the durability if you use them everyday...
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have the same gloves they are a really nice pair of gloves. You can use them everyday but they are not a summer glove they don't have good ventilation to allow good airflow too cool your hands
I currently wear the Held Titan gloves and was thinking about buying the new Held Titan Evo. How do the Dainese Full Metal D1 gloves compare to the Titan Evo in terms of protection, durability, and feedback from the bike?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can read up on the details of protection and feedback. That's what these gloves are made for. I've never had the Held but you can tell these were developed from racing experience. Durability nobody can speak of since they changed the leather in the palm area this year. typically with durability you sacrifice feedback/bike feel.
My hand measures at 9" around. I saw where Anthony measured at 8.5 and said he wears an extra large in these gloves. Would it be wise to buy it in extra large or large?
kyle b on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Definitely get it in extra large. These gloves are a tight fit even when they have softened up. My boyfriends gloves are still hard to take off and he's been wearing them in since christmas.
Does anyone have experience using these daily street use? How have they held up for a "track glove"?
Jeron G on May 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used them only for the street. The leather in the fingers is paper thin. After only a few months it looks like they need to be replaced.
in the video, anthony is wearing white/black/green. where did he get the GREEN ONES?
