Protection and bar-feel.

The Giro Rivet II Gloves check a lot of boxes for a lot of riders. Pittard’s synthetic leather palm, no padding, and four-way stretch fabric on the back of the hand add up to a glove that provides good trail feedback and bar-feel while protection your hands in the event of a crash. They pull on, instead of having a scratchy strap right where your wrist bends, and there’s some silicone added to the fingertips for better brake lever grip.

  • Pittard’s synthetic leather palm
  • Four-way stretch back
  • Silicone fingertips

I love the Pittard's leather palms, they offer an amazing amount of grip. These gloves are super light and minimal, no padding and very breathable. All time favorites for most riding, road and mountain.

Cool and breathable.

I got these as a gift for the hubs - here's what he has to say:

The Giro Rivet II gloves are perfect for the late spring to early fall riding conditions. The backing is very breathable, which keep the hands quite cool. I chose the orange version, mostly to match my orange Giro Prolights, but also for additional visibility. A small note is that this glove has no padding, which may make longer rides a bit uncomfortable for your hands.

Lightweight grip and dexterity.

What makes these gloves special is their almost non-existent feeling when you're wearing them. Lightweight mesh keeps your hands from becoming a sweaty mess while allowing full dexterity for gripping your bars. I'd recommend these gloves for any rider looking for something unpadded, with unencumbered movement desired for braking and navigating through trail obstacles.

These are awesome gloves, feels like you aren't even wearing gloves. I personally don't like how gloves feel while riding but they are necessary if your hands sweat like mine. These gloves are very light duty and literally feel like you aren't wearing gloves. They have a mesh style material on the knuckle area of the glove and it allows air to flow in and out of the glove! Love them.

great gloves the first few weeks that I've had them. Nice and breathable which is great but they are thus lightly constructed. The seams at the wrist and on the thumb are coming undone, it's like a single stitch with light thread when they need a double stitch with a heavier thread. And a hole developed on one as well. Other than that they are great

If I had my way, I'd never wear gloves on the bike. However, rocks, pavement, and tree branches hurt... so gloves it is. The Giro Rivet 2s are by far my favorite out of all the gloves I've tried because they pretty much disappear when you put them on. In a good way. No pesky velcro straps. No bulky padding to get in the way of road feel. Long fingers to avoid that icky cut-off feeling of short-finger gloves. It's awesome.

I know these are technically mountain bike gloves, but I've been using them (and their predecessor, the Rivet) for road and cyclocross for years. The mesh backing is breathable and quick-drying enough for super-hot summer rides, and provides enough coverage to cut the chill in a mid-fall cross race. I probably wouldn't wear them for training rides under about 50 degrees, but anything warmer is fair game.

The overall construction on these is good, for the most part. I've had a few issues with stitching unraveling and opening up small holes, but nothing major. The one pair I had to get rid of was because my cat is a jerk and peed on them, so I can't blame Giro for that. Toxic substances aside, the other three pairs I own have survived some pretty crazy ride conditions (not to mention countless washing machine cycles) and are still ticking. The fabrics are soft and paneled together to shape to your hands as you ride without bunching or pinching, and the fingers are long enough to avoid that weird pull on the thumb and forefinger when riding on the hoods. I can just put them on and forget about them the rest of the ride.

If you need to access your phone during the ride, the index finger is also touch-screen friendly. No need to take off your gloves to check the route or text a mountaintop photo to your friends in the Midwest.

tl;dr - These gloves are awesome enough that I don't mind having weird wrist tan lines.
