I got the yellow gloves with the black palm padding. The black dye in the palm runs. Stains your hands and has stained the yellow fabric from when I have tried to wash them out. Gloves fit fine and feel fine. Perhaps think twice about choosing this color though.
I bought a pair of each color to match up with some of my colorful jerseys. As described,they are indeed a tight fit. I have small hands and ordered the large. They fit like a second skin. Genuine leather palms. The palm padding could cover a bit more but there's enough to be alright. I'd buy them again.
I have several pairs of Giro gloves and expected these to fit the same and be of similar quality. They are tiny (I am a perfect Large in all other Giro gloves but the Large in these are way too small). They are also much more lightly constructed on everything but the leather palm, which is nicely padded and the only reason i gave these 2 stars instead of one. I fully expect these to be worn out in five rides and am very disappointed. Should have trusted my gut when i received them and just sent them back.
The gloves are good as advertised, it provides excellent padding for those that need it. If your bike handlebar is good or new, you may not needs this glove however. I went back to basic Giro gloves after purchasing a new bike.
Do not buy these gloves; After 1 month of use they have completely fallen apart. They are very nice gloves for a few rides, but then they literally just fell apart. Look elsewhere and look into gloves that last.
These would be great gloves if they didnt fall part; have literally never had equipment do this before.
Bought two pair, they feel great when you first put them on and provide a nice solid grip. My problem is both pair lasted maybe 10 rides each before the sides blew out. For the cost and to last only a few rides just not a good product.
I bought these to replace some cheap ones that wore out prematurely. They worked well on a recent week-long trek. My hand is really a medium, but the mediums were far too tight. I returned them and got large which are still a bit tight.
bought Giro Monaco II Gel Glove in highlight yellow...when sweating heavy or in very humid wet weather the black dye on the leather bleeds off- badly! My hands are black..my white bar tape is grey! This is after a wash cycle also. Grrrrrr
Had this product before with no issues- maybe a bad batch.....won't buy again with so many choices
Long rides can be hard on the hands when you lean on the handlebars. The Giro Monaco II Gel Glove provides superior padding in the right places to prevent wear and tear while relieving pressure.
