Product Description

A glove for cold days that demand a little more from you and your equipment (40ºF/5ºC). The Ambient combines a water and wind resistant, breathable soft shell upper with X-Static fleece lining and a Clarino palm for warmth, durability and dexterity. It's light enough to wear for long rides and warm enough to fight off temperatures that hover above freezing. Upper features a 3-layer soft shell with water and wind resistant membrane to resist cold, stormy weather. X-Static fleece lining; insulated, moisture-wicking cuff with adjustable closure. Palm features Super Fit design with three-panel palm for a tailored fit; Clarino synthetic leather for enhanced durability; silicone detailing for enhanced grip. Padding is 3mm of EVA that distributes pressure for comfort and durability. Giro's unique 3-piece palm construction allows your hands to move naturally for enhanced control, while providing a layer of protection that deosn't compromise bar fell. By designing each part of the palm to mimic a hand's features and articulation, Giro gloves increase grip and provude a superior level of protection for the entire hand. 1 - Thumb: The Super Fit Engineered thumb panel is essential to providing a snug fit with your hand while also allowing freedom of movement and enhanced grip necessary for maximum control and bar feel. 2- Palm: The Super Fit Engineered palm panel is optimized to provide a snug, comfortable fit without bunching when you grip the handlebar. By selecting the best material for each glove design and carefully sizing the palm panel to match the natural curve of the hand, the palm remains supple while providing a layer of protection. 3 - Body: the Super Fit Engineered body of a Giro glove is designed to support your hand's natural movement, while providing a platform for padding and protection where you need it most.

Definitely go 1 size bigger than you usually do. X-Large is usually plenty for me but they are tight. Great for temps as low as 37-38F but no colder. Good construction that looks like they will last. Great for nose wiping. My morning bike ride is about 20 minutes.

Don't make the same mistake I did... NOT paying enough attention to the rest of the reviews.

I checked the Giro size chart and measured my hands accordingly.

25.5 cm around the largest part of my palm / Giro chart XL 24.8 - 26.7
22 from the heal to the tip of my middle finger / Giro XL 20 - 21

I ordered the XL because I couldn't be sure of the heal to tip of finger measurement... Where does the heal start?
So, I ordered the XL based on circumference measurement of my palm. I tried using the PDF printout but the hand width was way out of proportion to my hand and was useless.

The XL was skin tight and I could not close my hand. I thought I would tear open the seams if I really tried. I returned these and got the XXL. These fit better, so I would say that the measurement of the hand length is more important in my case. It cost an additional $5.58 so return these and in the end cost me more than if I went to my LBS and tried them on or just waited for the clearance sale when the weather got warmer.

I bought these for cold days and of course by the time they were returned and replaced the weather is now warmer... :(
Which is not a bad thing... ;)

Anyway, I tried the gloves out riding my motorcycle and found that the web between the thumb and index finger is to tight. By this I mean that when grasping the handlebar it forces my thumb against the inside tip of the glove, and the seam is very pronounced and uncomfortable. There is very little padding in the palm so if you think that these are bicycle style gloves with padding except with full fingers, think again.

All in all not the greatest experience and no I would not recommend these to a friend.

These are sized a bit on the small side. My hand is about 8" around. Ordered a medium, should've ordered a large. Fortunately, Amazon will pay for return shipping if you get the wrong size like me. I got them to keep my hands warm on my bike ride to work. They do the job well.

Best tip that should be told to anyone buying winter cycling gloves.

I tell you if you want the best fit - up-size.

As for the gloves they are very very good and cozy. Great fit and comfortable grip on my MTB handlebars.

That is all you need to know. Thanks Giro.

Size: X-Large Verified Purchase
Although advertised as being good for temperatures down to freezing, they do not keep my hands warm when it gets near or below about 40 degrees. The fabrication is excellent, and although other reviewers have said that you should order one size up (as their fit is undersized), my hand-size is definitely XL, and the XL size I received fits me (wait for it!) like a glove!

Shifting with my thumb and pointer finger is easily accomplished, and braking is transparent - except for when my hands have gone numb from the cold, which does occur at a higher than rated temperature.

Someone complained that they're isn't a good spot to wipe your runny nose on them! For me, I just use my sweatshirt sleeve if it gets that bad! Overall the sizing, construction and quality are great, but they just don't keep my hands warm at 40 degrees or below. Maybe It's just the windchill factor because I'm riding too fast! I ride for exercise over 100 miles per week - currently living in Michigan.

Size: Medium Verified Purchase
These gloves have worked well for rides in the low 40s. I like that I can still operate zippers with them on. I'm happy with this purchase.

Size: Large Verified Purchase
These gloves works well for me in temperatures between 30-50 degrees. I wouldn't recommend riding longer than 1hr at temps near 30 but they do work well for those shorter rides. I've had no issue going 2hr+ when temps are closer to 40 degree. There is a nice soft piece of fleece on the upper thumb that works great for the nose.

I commute to work, 5 miles each way, year round in Northern California. These gloves work very well in the colder/damper months. Our temps here can run from freezing in the early morning before I go to work to the mid 50's (in the winter).

Pro's: Durable construction. Comfortable. Great fit (for me). Reflective areas (for safety).

Con's: Warm fingers to about 40 degrees F. But that's how the description reads...so do yourself a favor and READ those descriptions.

I wear a medium in these gloves. I wear a size 6 1/2 sterile gloves at work, for those of you in healthcare you know what I mean. I would NOT say I have a big hand at all. So I think all the reviewers that say to upsize, that's a great idea.

I am about to order my third pair. Not because my other two pairs aren't still beneficial. But in my older years (late 40's) I start to realize if I find a favorite 'something' it's gone the next season. Since these fit well and do the job, I want to have an extra pair available once the others fail.

I have washed my oldest pair a few times and one of the gloves lost some stitching (1" length) in the palm area. But honestly, it was easy to sew it back together.

I hope this helps you.Get out and ride!
