Just tried Dainese Carbon (similar to 4 Stroke Evo), Frazer and Mig C2...so uncomfortable and stiff the Carbon...better the Frazer but no palm protection (so it's off the list), and the most comfortable and with decent palm protection was the Mig C2.

The most important thing is the palm and scafoid protection, so the X-Run and Frazer are not a good option.

Maybe I will get X-Strike or 4 Stroke Evo, and as the second pair I could get the Essential (ventilated)

Can you please give me your opinion once you receive them?

I would get X-Strike also, but the lack of protection for the wrist makes me get the 4 Stroke Evo, that are also short, but a bit longer, and offer small protection for the wrist with that TPU Dainese logo, and are a bit longer.

If you know 4 Stroke Evo, can you tell me which one is better ventilated?

I still don't have new gloves. :rant:
I had ordered the X-Strike's but canceled my order because they are backordered until (possibly) the end of May.
Now I'm trying to decide between waiting for the X-Strike's or getting a pair of 4 Stroke Evo's....

Well I got them...they are horrible!

I will be returning them, and exchange for Alpinestars Celer black.

Dainese X-Strike looks nice, but is a crappy made glove...the fingers are so short, that only a hobbit could wear those properly.

I measured 8.5" around my hand, so I should get size M...well I got L, and yet they are so short in the fingers, and the DCP on the left it's hurting my pinky.

I hope Alpinestars Celer will be better...definitely looks to be more comfortable.

I ordered them XL by the way.

I hope they are slimmer than the Druids because those are hideous.

I like 4 Stroke Evo but I don't want to risk after the failure with the X-Strike that look way more slim than the 4 Stroke Evo, yet I found them extremely uncomfortable.

I'll post opinion about Alpinestars Celer after I'll get them.

I got my 4 Stroke Evo's but I have only ridden with them once so far. They are tight (size Large - I wear XL in A*stars), but I've been wearing them around the house to try to break them in. These are my first set of leather gloves, and I know I need to break them in. Any ideas?

How wet? "splash splash" or wear them in the shower?

Whichever one has the thinnest, most pliable palms.
Freaks me out when I can't feel the grips very well.
Interested in feedback if anyone knows of a good glove like that.

Wet them in the shower, then wear them like that on the bike until they dry...it's the fastest way to soft a LEATHER glove. The water must be cold.

Haven't tried it myself, but this I have read that others have done so.

I had Icon Pursuit before...they were so comfortable, but offer zero palm protection.

So plush like you don't even have a glove on.

I just got yesterday the Alpinestars Celer and they are so nice...good protection, some ventilation, and 85% leather.

I don't feel very well the controls yet, because the gloves aren't soft enough yet, but beying leather, they will break in fast.

Update for those who might be thinking about the Dainese 4 Stroke Evo gloves....

Holy crap I love them!!!

I didn't bother with getting them wet, I just toughed it out and rode normally.
Yes, they were tight at first but now they "fit like a glove" and I have to say they are very comfy!!
Also, at first I didn't like the "Rossi tickler" but I don't notice it anymore. I've read reviews online about these gloves and most say the same thing.

Worth the money and worth the effort to break them in....
