Dainese X-Run Summer Gloves

For the last year (even through the winter, its been that mild) I've been wearing my BMW GS enduro gloves. they are so comfortable and light with good airflow, great when we were in Germany last year in 36 degrees plus!
But I was talking to someone who had an on road spill in similar gloves and had gone through them even at low speed, despite having leather palms, they are OFF road gloves.

So I started looking into gloves and found this from a guy wearing Alpinestars SMX carbon gloves, again an off road type glove. Both made by reputable manufacturers just the wrong thing for the job.
So I've bought some Dainese X-Run gloves, their new short ROAD sports glove.

I went for a (M)edium which is sized by Dainese at 9" - 9.5" my hand measures about 9" and as I like my glove to fit like... well a glove, I though I may have to exchange them for a (S)mall. 

But, they are tight, fantastic fit! any smaller and I wouldn't get them on! so if you like a bit or room, go 1 size up.
I will follow up with another blog on how they perform, comfort and quality.
Now to wear them in!
