Giro Monaco glove was improved with this version. I've used the original Monaco gloves for several years and love the fit and the performance on the bike. The look great as well!
3rd or 4th time purchasing Giro Monaco gloves, after 1st using Giro Bravo gloves, which I liked, and which lasted long time. Did not like 1st pair of Monaco gloves. Though leather and well gel padded, leather did not last long after repeated handwashes. Tried to minimize washes with 2nd pair, but eventually leather hardens & begins to crack. This pair appears a bit more flexible in design. Limiting washes to remove sweat and avoiding getting leather wet, only washing top mesh surface. This model II may last longer. Time will tell.
