Item # GIR002R

Breathe in, breathe out.

Hands don't get a ton of love in the bike world, but they should. They're the interface between your body and your bike, so if they're rubbed raw, sore, and bruised, you won't be able to control your bike as well you'd like. Giro's Xen Gloves take hand protection to the next level, with plenty of DH-ready padding and XC-caliber breathability.

The upper part of your hand (knuckles, upper fingers, and outer portion) is covered by Giro's sonic-welded armor, which is accented by breathable mesh to keep your hands protected and cool. At the heel of your palm, Poron XRD padding is soft until impact, at which point it stiffens to keep your palms from getting shredded when you go over the bars. Flex zones at the knuckles and silicone print at the fingertips keep your digits dexterous and your braking reliable, respectively, and the three-piece Super Fit Clarino palm is hooked up with 2mm Technogel padding to reduce vibrations without making it feel like you're gripping your bars while wearing mittens.

  • Clarino synthetic leather palm
  • Perforated mesh back-of-hand
  • Poron XRD heel padding
  • Sonic-welded armor upper-hand padding
  • Technogel palm padding
  • Knuckle flex zones
  • Hook-and-loop closure

Here's what others have to say...

All day everyday

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Have worn these gloves for the past few seasons. super comfortable, great fit. Always seem to rip the seam between my thumb & pointer tho...

Tons of Miles with them

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've had 4-5 pairs of these over the past few years & they are pretty good gloves. I keep a couple in the rotation so I always have a clean pair

I would have given 5 stars but my latest pair self destructed after just a few uses. I sent them back but still have 3 I use.

I'm a pretty solid large in most gloves & this one fits the same.

Won't last

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are extremely comfortable so I was hoping they would be my go to gloves. After about 5 or 6 rides the stitching near the joint of the my left index finger came completely undone. Returned!

Not durable

After half a dozen rides and one fall the palm completely ripped open. Unless you never plan on falling avoid these. One star because I can't give zero apparently.
