There is no doubt that the main purpose of these gloves is to provide the maximum protection to the user, so we find , the main objective of the glove is to provide maximum protection to the user, offering great solutions to critical areas, like fingers and palm. In the knuckles’ area we find carbon inserts and a titanium plate on the reverse. These protectors have been designed to combine a protective material against abrasion, such the titanium, with other very light material which offers resitance against impacts, like the carbon. This system has been designed following the D-Tec guidelines, a Daineses’research center formed by doctors, technicians and engineers, who work together in designing protective elements for the equipment.

The protection does not end here, because in the palm there are polyurethane reinforcements, while in the reverse there is an insert of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) which helps to the slip of the glove in an event of a fall.

The combination of different materials in making these gloves and application know-how in the competition Dainese positioned to Full Metal D1 as one of the most valuable commodities in motorcycle gear.
