I have a pair in yellow, purchased about 2 yrs ago. After a few uses road riding the stitches on one of the pads came out, about one inch long. Contacted Giro and they gave me the runaround. I still have them and have put off mending them myself since my PI gloves serve me well. The gloves were comfortable, however Giro could have done better in design, material behind the pads is cut away leaving a thin edge to sew the pads to, which led to stitching failure.
As all the other reviews indicate, there is a lot of padding. Not sure I fined them anymore comfortable than other gloves I own with less padding. Like bike saddles, more padding does not necessarily mean better. Only other thing I will add that has not been mentioned in other reviews, they feel a little warm for hot weather cycling. Maybe its the black fabric on top of the glove (I have two pair) or the fabric is slightly heavier. On days when the temps are going to get close to 85 or 90 degrees, I tend to pick a cooler pair of gloves. Again, not a criticisms, just an observations.
I was getting a little numbness in my hands during long rides and since I needed a new pair of gloves I decided to try the Giro Supergel Glove. I have a number of pairs of Giro gloves but this pair exceeded my expectations. Numbness is gone.
I have noticed a difference from when I used to ride without gloves. There used to be a tingling sensation when I rode without the gloves. Now I get to enjoy the ride without that tingling, numbing sensation in my hands. Great purchase!!
These gloves fit perfectly and the gel provides great cushioning. The finger tabs make removing the gloves easier. I like the bright color because it makes the gloves easy to find in my gear bag.
I've tried many gloves over the years, but the Giro Strade Dure Supergel are the best bang for the buck. The only thing I would improve is more durable palm leather on the gel pads so they last longer if you use the gloves to wipe your tires while you ride. Otherwise their excellent gloves.
