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.
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.
These gloves are light, generally comfortable, and have nice padding to prevent numb fingers. Only compliant is the stitching along the thumb, the seam runs on the inside of the thumb and the stitching chafes again the skin in this area. Relocate or improve this seam and you'd have a 5 star product.
Gloves are like saddles and shoes: There is no "best," only "best-for-you." These gloves deliver for my large, bony hands--very plush. Giro sizing is random, and constantly changing--I have worn Xl and XXL in Monaco, I got these in M because reviews said they ran large. Brand new, they were skinsuit-tight, but they stretched to a comfortable, but snug, fit. I could easily size up, but I think the padding would bunch at the base. I think these are an excellent choice if you need some extra cush, and the fit suits you.
I hand circumference was on the border line between small and medium so I went with the medium. They are tight. I would suggest that if you size up for these gloves if your measurements are not close to the low range. The gloves are very comfortable and provide good padding.
I just used these on a 80+ mile back packing trip. They have padding/ feel nice. However the best feature are the two pull tabs on the middle two fingers. I found myself utilizing the tabs to easily adjust the gloves on the fly. I have others without this feature that just get all bunched up and uncomfortable/harder to adjust on the fly.
High end glove and fit is perfect in large size. This glove really molds to your hand with long lasting comfort. Fit is true to size and probably the best glove I have worn in quite some time.
Comfortable padding, great fit )XL). Holds up very well to daily washes. The stitching on the right index finger is coming loose but that doesn't seem unreasonable wear after about 2000 miles.
