Dainese 4 Stroke Gloves Review

A brand new street and sport riding glove, the Dainese 4 Stroke Gloves are an extremely stylish and protective short cuff summertime option. A big step up in features and functionality from the Dainese Ricochet Gloves, the 4 Strokes are sure to be a big hit for sport tourers and aggressive street riders within the Dainese lineup.

Check out our Dainese 4 Stroke Gloves Review:

Let's take a look at how these gloves are constructed. The backhand chassis is an extremely abrasion-resistant cowhide leather while the palm is a strong, lightweight, and very tactile goatskin leather. There is perforation all over the back of the hand, at the palms, and in between the fingers to suck air into the gloves. Protection is loaded up in the 4 Strokes: the main knuckle is a composite insert- TPU hard parts on the knuckle and back hand that are thermowelded to a stainless steel plate. The finger knuckles all feature TPU hard part armor while the pinky uses TPU sliders and Dainese's Distortion Control System to prevent serious injury to the little finger, which is an extremely common racing injury. There is addition TPU slider at the heel of the
hand and at the cuff. This is a ton of armor for a short cuff glove.

For comfort and ergonomics, the 4 Strokes have microelastic inserts across the fingers, and at the thumb and cuff, so there is no discomfort when actively working the controls. The palm features leather reinforcements in high-use and high-wear areas to extend the longevity. Foam inserts at the thumb and palm provide additional safety. The glove has an ergonomic pre-curving to reduce fatigue while a single velcro cuff closure provides a snug fit. The fingers also all feature double layer leather reinforcements for added safety. Across the board, the Dainese 4 Stroke Gloves will excel in summertime street and sport riding and they are a welcome addition to the Dainese lineup, brand new for Spring 2011.
