THE GLOVES ARE GREAT! THEY WERE A LITTLE TIGHT INITIALLY BUT BECAME COMFORTABLE AS THEY WERE USED.
THE ONLY MINOR NEGATIVE IS THAT THEY ARE A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE. (NO BIGGIE)
The only reason I didn't give them a 5 was the size was a bit on the small side. I would order up a size. I'm an avid rider and ride almost every day. They seem to be holding up well.
Have used other Giro products and have been very happy with quality and price. Saw these at a fantastic deal. They fit great, true to size. Much lighter weight and more color choices then competing products at similar price.
I've been cycling for over 5 years and just decided to buy gloves. While trying on gloves, these felt the best and actually were extremely affordable. I've been very pleased while using them out on the road.
These are very nice gloves, high quality, true to size fit and they are very comfortable. Good ventilation and just the right amount of padding on the palms and durability is good so far. My only little gripe would be that the gloves can be a little slippery on leather type bar tape, would be nice to see some silicone grippers fused onto the palm material.
My hand measures 8 12 so as per size chart I ordered size M. They fit like a glove. Easy to get on, facilitated by an integral pull tab, and are so comfortable that I forget that I'm wearing them. They are a bit of a chore to remove, but did I mention that they are comfortable? The padding thickness is light to medium I would say but just the same, they are quite comfortable.
Bought the 2014 version and loved them, not too padded.
So I bought a second pair...These are the 2015 version (which is what I'm rating lower).
They have added gel inserts that are too thick and bulky, affecting grip on the bars.
As others have mentioned, they run a bit small, too. But I believe they will stretch out a bit after wearing them in.
Loved the 2014's with less padding, not in love with these 'new and improved' gloves.
I have used nothing but Giro gloves all my life while cycling. These are well made, yet they seem to run a little small in size. When using the terry cloth part to wipe away moisture, the top Velcro straps seem to get in the way. Overall, great product for the price.
