As all the other reviews indicate, there is a lot of padding. Not sure I fined them anymore comfortable than other gloves I own with less padding. Like bike saddles, more padding does not necessarily mean better. Only other thing I will add that has not been mentioned in other reviews, they feel a little warm for hot weather cycling. Maybe its the black fabric on top of the glove (I have two pair) or the fabric is slightly heavier. On days when the temps are going to get close to 85 or 90 degrees, I tend to pick a cooler pair of gloves. Again, not a criticisms, just an observations.
These are great gloves, BUT the stitching came out of the thumb on the first ride. BTD quickly sent me a new pair, no questions asked, just a picture of the damage. Awesome customer service and with a little sewing I have 2 pairs.
These gloves fit perfectly and the gel provides great cushioning. The finger tabs make removing the gloves easier. I like the bright color because it makes the gloves easy to find in my gear bag.
The name says it all Super Gel! It works! I'm a road cyclist averaging over 100 miles a week and used to experience hand numbness on longer rides with other Giro gloves. That has pretty much become a thing of the past. I'm on my second pair of Supergels and very satisfied.
I have noticed a difference from when I used to ride without gloves. There used to be a tingling sensation when I rode without the gloves. Now I get to enjoy the ride without that tingling, numbing sensation in my hands. Great purchase!!
I've tried many gloves over the years, but the Giro Strade Dure Supergel are the best bang for the buck. The only thing I would improve is more durable palm leather on the gel pads so they last longer if you use the gloves to wipe your tires while you ride. Otherwise their excellent gloves.
