Nice glove

Well constructed, with balanced padding...not too much, not too little. Fit is perfect according to the chart. Just be aware that the black Pittards leather palm will bleed onto your white bar tape & discolor it. I switched to a model with the light grey palm, and no problems. Durability is my primary concern when it comes to gloves, and I used Monacos all last season. No popped stitches and no tears. They remain comfortable. The palm started to give out late in the season...worn through between the gel pads at the wrist, yet rideable enough to finish out the season
