Giro Monaco Long Finger Gloves $0.00
While last year's Monaco was only available in an airy and light short-fingered version, these Giro Monaco Long Finger Gloves are a full-finger model, with less venting and a thicker, sturdier back.
They have a Pittards leather palm that won't stretch or deform. It features perforations for breathability, and is complimented by subtle Technogel padding for certain parts of the hand, such as the outside of the heel of the palm, that endure the most jarring over the course of a long ride.
The palm itself features Giro's Super Fit Engineering, which is a fancy way of saying that Giro doesn't buy off-the-rack glove patterns, and instead cuts its own patterns based on intended use, padding zones, and grip level. So mountain-bike gloves might get a different pattern than the road-going Monaco gloves, and the same goes for more heavily vented gloves, half-finger gloves, and so on. For the Monaco, special attention was paid to preventing bunching at the junction of finger and palm. And by the way, each glove size undergoes the Super Fit Engineering process.
The back of the Monaco Gloves is made of a four-way stretch mesh and the back of the thumb has fine-nap, soft microfiber, so it's gentler as a nose or brow wiper.
The Monaco Long Finger Gloves are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and come in Black/charcoal.
|S||M||L||XL and up|
- How to Measure:
- Measure from the bottom of the wrist to the top of the middle finger.
What community has to say
Not for people who sweat
I bought these as a lightweight MTB glove, and padding/comfort-wise, they're amazing. They breathe well too. But the back of the thumb/hand is not absorbent, so as with all my other gloves, I usually end up doing face wipes with the palm. But with these gloves, the palm is a different kind of leather/synthetic, and it is 100% non-adsorbent. It feels like wiping Saran Wrap over your sweaty face. A bike glove that can't wipe sweat is useless to me, so I was forced to return them after 1 ride. Too bad really, because the strategically located padding on the palm and the impressive breathability were great characteristics (though they're probably not that durable and certainly not protective of the top of the hand in any way).
So I say that they're not for people who sweat, but if you're not sweating while riding, you're not riding hard enough... so it might be safe to say that they're not really fit for any kind of exertional cycling whatsoever.
fits great super cozy
