Dakine Glove Technology

FIT

PRE-CURVED FINGER CONSTRUCTION

Performance articulation is achieved by shaping the palm pattern to fit the hand in the relaxed position. The fourchettes are also patterned following the natural articulation of the fingers. Performance articulation results in an optimal fit with superior blood flow to the fingers, leading to warmer hands.

Dakine Glove Measurement

Measure the circumference at the widest part of your hand just below the fingers.

 

 

DAKINE WARMTH INDEX


 Glove Warmth Index

Dakine offers different gloves and mitts for different conditions. The heat index provides a warmth comparison between different models. Gloves and mitts are rated from 1-5 based on the amount of insulation and lining materials. Styles with a warmth rating of 1 are designed for warmer weather conditions or riders who require less insulation. At the other end of the spectrum, gloves or mitts with a rating of 5 are the warmest styles for the harshest conditions, and for those who need maximum warmth.

(Note: In addition to the added warmth a mitt design provides, Dakine mitts all have added insulation over their glove counterparts and therefore will always be warmer.)

Gore Grip Technology

OUTSTANDING TACTILITY. SURE GRIP. WATERPROOF AND BREATHABLE.

Gloves engineered with GORE-TEX inserts + Gore grip technology feature a full bond between the GORE-TEX insert and the inner lining material, while a special grip tape provides a “non-slip” effect between this bonded package and the outer shell when pressure is applied. The end result is a close-fitting, durably waterproof and breathable glove with a single layer feel. Thanks to their innovative layered construction, they provide outstanding dexterity and tactility for an optimum grip. This makes it easier to handle your ski poles, zippers, goggles, bags, etc.
