Description

You're not too fast for style.

If you're not ashamed of admitting to being a bit of a hipster, or you just want to defy the judgmental types and relive your netted-gloved youth, then you can't go wrong with the Giro LX Gloves. They're like a fine classic automobile with a gorgeous retro body, only its been completely overhauled to modern standards on the inside.

Combining style and comfort like this is a Giro specialty. To start with the comfort, Giro included 3mm of its Technogel padding in the palm. Technogel is a proprietary polyurethane cushioning that molds itself to the body in order to help to dissipate the pressure load. Not only that, but Technogel absorbs impact up to 30% more efficiently than typical glove gels. And, perhaps most importantly, it doesn't break down over time. So, you can count on the same level of cushioned protection for the lifespan of the glove.

We recognize that gloves in the past, especially gel-palmed gloves, used to overload the padding as if we're riding the cobbles of Roubaix at lunch. The result was a feeling that we weren't in control of the bars. The immediacy of our reaction time was compromised by the feeling of riding with oven mitts on our hands. Giro recognized this, and accordingly, used its Three-Piece Palm construction to make sure that there was sufficient padding for the weight-bearing points on the palm. Essentially, this place protection exactly where you need it without over-padding the entire thing. Giro designed the LX palm to mirror the hands' features and articulated movements, improving grip while keeping the tender and heavily used spots cushioned.

You'll notice just how much better these gloves fit than that first incarnation of netted gloves you had as a kid. Gloves that bunch and start cutting off the circulation to the fingers are obviously the worst for your hands. So, Giro designed the LX around its Super Fit Engineering process in order to develop the gloves with a guided fit, design, and patterning. What does this mean? Basically, through rigorous research, Giro made the palm, fingers, and padding in order to conform to various shapes and sizes of hands.

Leather-palmed gloves were the height of chic back in the day. We loved our first pair with a passion seldom reserved for the hands. But after a month or two of heavy use, the leather palms would become so cracked and coarse that we simply laid them aside and mourned our loss. Giro combats this by using Pittards leather for the palms. Pittards uses Cabretta, or hairsheep, leather because it's so thin and durable. This is ideal for applications like mountain biking, where durability and tactile feel are so important.

The Giro LX Gloves are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors White, Black, and Tan.

Not recommended

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this item for more than a year. Every part of the glove seemed to have stretched a bit and fit nicely except for the pinky. I've never had this problem with other brands (specialized, castelli, rapha).
Also very difficult to remove after long sweaty rides.

Thumb web stitch quite bulky

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a lady that loves the look of these gloves. Currently own small, but they have stretched a bit.

Also, the point where all the fabric meets on the inside of thumb is quite bulky. It needs to be a flatter stitch. After a long ride when the gloves come off, thumb web generally hurts.

POOR STITCHING QUALITY.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These gloves feel great when you put them on. Nice soft padded leather palms and they look fantastic in a classic way. They do take a bit longer than most gloves to get off after a ride.
HOWEVER-after only about 100 miles the stitching on the outside of the left glove has come undone where the fingers end/palm begins. Seems like a poorly designed joint.
Overall these could have been the perfect glove but the stitching quality ruins them.

Ok

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Biggest problem no finger pulls for getting them off other than that the gel pads are nice. Fit is ok but seem like they wont last super long.

the stitching doesn't hold up....

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

....to the cost of these.

The fingers are coming undone, making way for the mesh in between the fingers to tear.

Yes i take the gloves off by reversing them, and not pulling on the finger outlets.

Other than that. I dig'em.
Worth $30.00
Especially since their made in '67 Saigon !!!

Great look, so-so fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Other's may disagree with me but I don't love these gloves. And I really wanted to. I use Giro's Monaco glove all the time so I thought the LX would be a nice and classy upgrade. While they are similar, I think they fall a bit short in the fit department. While initially they conformed to my hands I feel they have loosened up too much. My other problem with the glove is that it is difficult to get off my hand after a long and sweaty ride.

Hey Jack,

Check out the Sizing Chart underneath the size selector. In order to size them appropriately you need to "measure around your hand at the widest point excluding the thumb." Hope this helps.
