Dainese Ricochet Gloves Review

A brand new street option from Dainese for Spring 2011, the Dainese Ricochet Gloves are a motard-inspired glove that will perform extremely well in hot weather spirited street and sport riding. With everything that goes into a pair of Dainese Gloves, from style to protection to overall performance, the Ricochets will shine in warm to hot weather riding on the road.

Check out our full Dainese Ricochet Gloves Review here:



The Dainese Ricochet Gloves feature a full premium cowhide leather construction with textile stretch fabric in strategic areas. Protection comes in multiple forms: carbon fiber main knuckle backed by temperfoam reinforcements, foam padding across the knuckles, and a TPU slider along the side of the pinky to assist in a get-off-and-slide scenario. Double leather reinforcement is found along the side of the hand that wraps all the way up to the pinky and there is also double leather at the heel of the hand with foam padding for vibration dampening. A large Stone PU patch on the palm that wraps up the inside of the palm is for durability and grip; this helps to prevent the palm from wearing out prematurely. There is foam padding on the back of the thumb in addition to stretch textile for flex.

Let's get into the creature comforts on this glove. You've got elasticated stretch paneling across the backhand and across the fingers to allow the armor to move with your hand while you're working the controls and stay where it needs to be to remain protective. There is perforation in between each of the fingers and at the top of the hand to help the air circulate through the glove. These are built for summertime- it's going to be hot and this ventilation will help cool the hands in a major way. This glove has a single velcro cuff closure and of course it has all the Dainese style elements, with strategic logos in all the right places and just an overall great line to it.
