I was replacing an old set of the same glove. I ordered the same model and size. The new glove has much less elastic and is therefore hard for me to put on or take off. Maybe in this newer version I needed the XL instead of the large, but my hands are not very large. Once I have them on, they work just fine.
These gloves are well made, but they fit quite small. I think they will break in over time, but if you're in any doubt consider upsizing your order. I wear a medium glove (for everything glove related) and these gloves would be more comfortable (probably) if I had ordered large. Over time I think it will be ok, but if you like a looser fit definitely upsize one size.
I have had good luck with Giro products such as their helmets. These gloves fell short. If the fit were decent, I like the light material and palm padding. The problem is the size. My hand size is typically between medium and large. To play it safe, I ordered large. The gloves are so tight and constraining as they are unusable.
These gloves fit, well, like a glove. They fit perfectly. No pinching the fingers, easy to put on and off. Protect the hands very well. The velcro closure fits fine. The gloves protect your hands well. And they look really good. I've been buying other more expensive gloves for many years and these are better. I would buy again. No cons.
I bought these on sale for a good price, ordered Large like I do for almost all my gloves (except Castelli). They're seriously too small, can barely get them and off. There is No Way they'd be comfortable for even a 5-minute ride. Soo disappointed in Giro on this product!
Over the years, I've owned several brands (and many pairs) of cycling gloves, including another model of Giro's. I have smaller hands than many men, so I normally wear a medium in other brands; however, from the previous Giro gloves I've owned, I needed a large size in their gloves so that's what I ordered. This pair was STILL too small. While I can get them on, it almost takes a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove them!
I have pretty small hands but these gloves in a size small fit me perfectly. The gloves should be a little tight to begin with but will break in after a ride or so. You can find cheaper gloves but those tend to be pretty shoddy in construction and most of the time don't have gel inserts. I find these gloves to be really comfortable while providing protection. Like most cycling apparel was in a delicate bag and air dry since they can get kind of rank after a bunch of rides.
I love this glove and have had a pair for 3 years! Its time they get replaced but only because I cycle a lot in the sun and they are a bit faded and the gel is worn some. They still fit well and have held together excellently! I wash them on cold after each ride and hang them to dry. I ride over a thousand miles a year and this pair get used most of my rides but about 3 months. Im here now buying a second pair!
