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.
Got these for
My wife because the listing strongly suggested they were womens gloves, she needed a pair and red is her color. She likes them and will use them
But they fit life, suggesting theyre either a unisex model or I misread the product listing (doubtful, they were under womens gloves ) Buyer beware on sizing!!
I bought these for the color scheme, and they seem well made. I like that my Pearl gloves have a little pocket I can use to help take them off - these are a little bit snug compared to other gloves same size, but not enough to justify a size upgrade.
I purchased these partly because of the color available and mostly because of the name brand. I have had grat luck with Giro products and these gloves are no exception. Great fit, great quality, and a great price.
I use these gloves....for recreational riding. I ride a recumbent trike....and these gloves give me a soft, but firm grip on the bars. The fit is very-good....and the gel, provides also aids in absorbing shocks as well.
I use these gloves....for recreational riding. I recently purchased a Catrike Expedion recumbent....and these gloves provide a soft, yet firm and very comfortable grip on the handlebars ...and the shifters. I am very-pleased with them...and would recommend them to any of my fellow cyclists....especially....TRIKE-PILOTS !!!!
These gloves fit and feel ok, though they are thinner (flimsier?) than my old pair of gel gloves. The gel palm is really minimal and I'd been hoping for more there. I've only ridden them for a few hundred km so far, and they seem like a good deal for the SALE price, but do not know if they will hold up for long.
Gloves stay molded to my hand and remove easily when done riding. Holding up well using them for about 800 miles. Really good support and nice price. I'd buy another pair when ready.
