Technology

Super Fit Engineering

Super Fit Engineering is a proprietary process that guides the fit, design and patterning of every Giro glove for maximum comfort and performance. By carefully tailoring the palm, fingers and padding zones to match the shape and size of the hand, Super Fit Engineering reduces bunching and discomfort while enhancing grip, bar feel and the effectiveness of the padding. And with as many as six sizes available per model, almost any rider can great pair of gloves to match their needs.

Select Giro gloves feature Pittards cabretta (hairsheep) leather chosen for its thin-but-tough structure. Pittards leathers undergo a special tanning process that helps the leather to absorb less water and resist sweat better than other leathers and synthetics. In addition to outstanding performance, no other material provides the fit and comfort of natural leather; it is a difference you will feel the moment you try on a pair of Giro gloves.

Technogel

Technogel is a proprietary polyurethane material originally designed for medical applications. We use Technogel for the padding in our premium gloves because of its superior pressure distribution characteristics. When pressed between the glove and handlebar, Technogel molds itself to the hand by deforming along all three axes. Normal padding materials tend to deform only along one axis which causes pressure to accumulate in the direct contact zones.

Three-Piece Palm Construction

Our unique three-piece palm construction tailors the fit of our gloves to reduce bunching, and allows your hands to move naturally for enhanced control that doesn’t compromise bar feel. By designing each part of the palm to mimic a hand’s features and articulation, Giro gloves increase grip and provide a superior level of protection for the entire hand.

They fit perfectly, the padding is great for my hands.
CJ
The first time I had the gloves on and tried to remove them with the finger pulls the stitching started to give way.....This makes the feature useless.
Tom G
I will definitely buy the same gloves if these are worn out.

I bought a pair of Monaco road gloves after good experience and durability from Giro Bravo gloves. I've been wearing the Bravo gloves for more than a year with no problems and great fit, but with the Bravo gloves, my hands were wearing out about 40 miles into rides. I wanted something with more padding. The purchase decision was based on my trust in the brand. I do like the gloves. I rode 60 miles last week, and my hands felt great. I like the pads, thickness of the pads and placement. They fit great and I like the feel, but one of the seams between fingers is tearing after just 2 rides with the new gloves. They're still usable, and I plan to continue wearing them, but I expected better durability.

I have a pair of Descente Airgel Short Finger Cycling gloves, & a pair of Sugoi gloves. But these Giros beat them all for fit, comfort & function. The padding is just right, not too thick, not too thin. I had numb palms using the Descente gloves but I had no issues with these Giros.

Do take note of the sizing issue. Based on the chart I'm a sized M but experience told me to get a L. Large just fits my hand.

The velcro is a bit on the weak side. It will hold but it doesn't give you the secure hold feeling. Also, the Pittards palm material is on the thin side, not sure how long it will last.

PS, got these as a present. :)

I've gone through three or four set of cycling gloves in the last four or five years, and these are probably the best. Good padding. Good fit - snug but not too tight. Easy removal. Seem to be very durable. The leather is a treat too.

Not trusting any of the sizing guidelines for gloves - I ordered one size up from a medium to a large. Glad I did. If you want a loose fit - order TWO sizes up. Have a similar set of Giro gloves bought at a LBS...Giro Bravo Cycling Glove. Found out then the medium size just wouldn't cut it.

Good padding - not too much and comfortable. But...if you're like me (a veteran of that little skirmish in south-east Asia) these are made in Vietnam. If I had known that in advance - I never would have bought them. Yes...I still have bad memories.

I got these as my first pair of bicycling gloves. I got them in April. At the time, I was riding between 20-25 miles per day. They are comfortable gloves, but as other buyers have mentioned, make sure you buy one size larger than you measure. I measured at a large, so I got an XL, and they fit well. The fact that these are leather is a nice touch and the gel padding is adequete. I put almost 2000 miles on the bike with these gloves before they started falling apart. I took care to wash them by hand and hang dry them around once a week. But soon the padding on the bottom started wearing through and soon the gel padding was gone and the gloves had holes on the bottom. Overall, they're good summer gloves. I don't know how they match up to other gloves as far as durability because I haven't ridden the same mileage on my Giro gloves, but they were comfortable while they lasted.

After returning the first pair of gloves (different brand) because I was disappointed in the amount of or lack of padding, I was very pleased with the Giro monaco road glove. I had gone to a bike shop and tried the gloves on; liked the fit and the padding so saved $$ by purchasing from Amazon. I have not washed them yet but so far, they're great.

The leather is awesome and the gloves are extremely nice to wear. The upper mesh provides plenty of ventilation and allows your hands to breathe easily. They fit very well and are easy to take off. Padding is in the proper place. The only downside to these is you can't throw them in the washer (like many other 'leather' gloves), but you have to wash them by hand. For $30+, these are a steal.

I recently started wearing gloves and ride 3x per week for total of 10 hours. I have been through two sets of black pairs - the dye in the leather ran and stained my hands right from the start. Avoid the ones with black leather.
