I have used these gloves for almost two months now. The padding is well placed and very helpful for my hand protection. I have large hands and order the large size (only option). They are a bit tights taking them off (and threads one on finger have started to unravel. They fit comfortable putting the gloves on though. I have modified my approach in removing the gloves in the hopes of getting these to last a year.
MY average riding in a week is 85miles and other than Dec-Mar I use these gloves. They are very easy on and off and dry much quicker than prior Giro gloves, They can feel a little stretchy/lose as the material is new to me.
I would buy them again..
I do like these gloves, but the pull ripped the first time I was taking the gloves off. I wasn't pulling aggressively or doing anything differently than with my Pearl Izumi or other Giro gloves, so I'm chalking it up to bad luck. Thought about returning due to the failure, but the other one is holding fine on that glove, so just keeping them. Losing one star for the failure, and 2 stars on value because they're quite expensive for a set of gloves, comfortable, but not sure they're worth the premium price.
This is a comfortable, good-fitting glove. I generally wear a medium glove, and while this is perhaps slightly snug, it's not overly so. I like that it breathes well and dries quickly. My only small complaint (which is why I'd rate it 4.5/5) is that while two fingers have tabs to help remove the glove, there is no tab on the thumb, and some assistance is definitely needed there! However, I will definitely be a repeat customer when the gloves need to be replaced.
I like Giro gloves, the tight mesh allows for breathability however the mediums size is tight for my hands and mine are pretty small fit sz manï¿½s hands. Maybe suggest a size up??
Thereï¿½s just enough padding
All my bikes have drop bars, I'm either riding on the lever hoods or on the drops. Most of the pressure on my hands occurs in the area between my thumb and index finger. These gloves are the first that I've found that have a continuous pad from the heal of the thumb to the first knuckle of the index finger. The fabric both outside and inside the glove are smooth without seams and doesn't bunch up. They're completely synthetic, so if you like to have leather palms you won't like these, but if you're looking for better comfort these may be the gloves for you. I haven't put in a lot of hours biking while wearing these so I can't say anything about durability but so far so good.
Have had Specialized gel, Castelli leather, Assos lightweight gloves... which I worn out or lost over the years! These ones are super comfy. I ordered a size up from the recommended size. Glad I did. Easier to take off. Love that they have integrated finger pulls on the outside of the glove fingers to easily extract them off of sweaty hands!
Last fall I bought Giro Strade Dure Supergel Gloves. The padding was too thin. I replaced by these Supernatural gloves and found the padding to be thicker and more comfortable. Well-made gloves. I've always worn a large size in various brands and found that a large in these Supernatural gloves fit me well.
An entirely new dimension, they are not. But they are comfortable, and look good. Gloves get a lot of wear and tear, so we'll see how well they hold up. These may run small. Size chart recommended large for me, but I ordered XL because they were out of large. Good thing because the XL were perfect. Large would have been too tight.
Loved my first pair so much that when they went on sale I bought a second pair. What I really like about these is that there are no seams and there is padding from the outside of the index finger all the way to the base of your thumb, which is were you feel the pressure when riding on the hoods.
Took a chance on these. Always looking for a better glove for 6-7 hours continuous riding.
These have replaced my Corso Rosso gloves for the long haul. Not by a lot, but after 6 hours of steady riding, every little bit counts. I was a little hesitant because they weren't gel, but I'm converted.
I have used Giro bike gloves for years and have been happy with their appearance and longevity. These particular gloves fit well, they are comfortable but they look rather cheesy. Looks shouldn't be that important but for some reason in this case that is where I am. I wouldn't buy another pair of them but I certainly would look first at other Giro models.
This is my second pair of the Supernatural Gloves...and they are not only comfortable, but wear well. I've tried several other brands, but these have become my go-to gloves. The fit is true, and the quality is great.
Mistys new gloves on my road bike during long rides. My old ones finally were worn out so I decided to go with these after a previous purchase was very uncomfortable. I love these gloves, they feel awesome!
My hands numb easily. My most recent pair of gloves were Giro-- maybe called Super Gel. These are thinner but even more comfortable. Great price on sale.
These are my favorite gloves as they are well padded. They run a bit small but seem to stretch out after a bit. They keep my hands from going numb.
Different for sure, but does the difference make for something better. Not really. Add to that they're a PITA to get off and that alone relegates them to, not supernatural.
I ride 2-3 times per week averaging 25-50 miles per ride. Thought I'd give these a try and I'm not disappointed. I typically experience numbness in my hand and the first time I wore them I realized I was well into my ride and I hadn't gone numb! I can't say they've reduced the tingling entirely, but they've reduced it significantly. I have at least 10 pairs of gloves from several different brands and these are my most comfortable, I'll buy another pair.
