Item # GIR002S

Simple and effective.

When you pull on the DND Gloves, you're treating your hands to technical features, expert craftsmanship, and Giro quality. So, how did this enticing level of perfection come into existence? Simple. The DND Super Fit design has evolved with Giro's diverse team of cyclists and engineers on trails all over the world for multiple years.

This latest iteration uses a palm constructed from three pieces of durable Clarino synthetic leather. This ensures that the glove won't end up like unsolicited credit offers when you plant the DND on rocks. But, most importantly, the three Super Fit panels expertly follow your palms' natural contours to eliminate any bunching at the grips, where blood flow and trail feedback are most essential.

The precise theme continues to the back of the hand as well. Here, you'll find a moisture-wicking, four-way stretch mesh. This material is not only breathable, but it's also snug enough to quickly pull away and evaporate moisture without inhibiting circulation. Along the fingers, flex zones at the knuckles ensure shifting and braking happens as fast as neurons fire. Meanwhile, reinforced tips with silicone grippers are hard-wearing for durability, while also ensuring positive engagement with the levers.

The Giro DND Gloves are available in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Black/charcoal, Black/rad star, Blue Tech, and Bright Green/black, Green Camo/gum, and Lead/gum.

  • Super Fit palm with Clarino synthetic leather
  • Four-way stretch breathable mesh upper
  • 2mm EVA crash padding
  • Reinforced fingertips with silicone printing on braking fingers
  • Flex zones at knuckles

Fits like a glove

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Med

"Simple, minimal, grips where you need it, breathes when you need it to. Splits in the index and middle finger make for a more ergonomic fit"

Excellent commuter/all-arounder

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Minimalist design, great comfort, durable materials not to mention one of the most comfortable cycling gloves I've ever worn. Been using this as a commuter glove in cooler temps and really happy with the minimal padding and fit/feel of this glove. Perfectly comfortable (for me) into the 40s/50s but haven't tested them in hot weather or much below that. Pad at the bottom is low profile and perfectly positioned for most hand positions on drop bars. I have pretty fat bar tape on my single speed commuter bike, so not sure how well they would feel on long roadie type rides, but soaks up city bumps and looks great. Fabrics used throughout seem durable and breathable and the pattern for the palm fits extremely well without bunching or pinching.

Rad Hand Huggers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

These are seriously some of my favorite gloves I've ever owned. They fit nicely, are true to size, comfortable on the trails, breezy, and pretty durable. I thought they'd rip at the seams after one ride. But after 15+ rides, they've held up better than I thought. Highly recommended if you want a simple, comfortable glove without bells and whistles.

Simple and Functional

  • Size Bought: large

Received these gloves the other day and went for a nice long ride. Great gloves, simple, and comfortable. I really like that they have no velcro wrist closure that comes undone and always flaps around! Great buy, thanks Backcountry!!!

The best basic!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

This glove is awesome! not only does it come in really cool colors but it had grip in all the right places. I am just getting into mountain biking, this glove is the way to go. It does run just a bit small, I would size up. Give me a call and I can get you into the right size on this.

Straightforward Glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I really like these gloves because of how simple they are. There aren't made to be the most durable glove however, I expect them to last at least one season.

They are comfortable and easy to get on and off. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the sizing. I think they run a little small. I originally had a size medium and it felt great in the fingers, but the palm of the glove was a little short for me. Swapped them out for a large and they fit much better!

DND Glove

    This was a gift for my BF who just got back into bike riding.. Nothing fancy about these gloves, less is more. Easy to take on and off, fun designs and colors and fit true to size

    Great fit and simple

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

    Nice simple design. No palm padding, no velcro. Just pull them on and shred.

    $ Money $

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

    I feel like these DND gloves are pretty close to perfect for me. They fit extremely well, offer just enough material on the back of the hand / knuckles to take the sting off of tree branches and other trail side obstacles, they don't have any bulky padding (no padding at all actually) and that is exactly what I am after.

    Look no further

    • Fit: True to size

    I abused a pair of these for a solid season before needing to replace. It was eventually a good fall that ripped a few seams that had been loosening up. And I ended up replacing them with an identical pair. Super low profile, tight, ergonomic, no velcro or anything else. Good fabric on the thumb for a snot pad if you need it.

    Less Is More

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

    What I like most about the DND glove is the lack of bulk and use of strategically placed features for grip and stability. I was looking for a XC/Cyclocross glove that gave me great feel and sensitivity and the DND deleivered. Initially they fit small and somewhat tight, but after one ride they had relaxed and fit like, well, a glove. Flex zones on the finger joints and medial side of the wrist was a nice touch.
    The simple design using Clarino synthetic leather and the four-way stretch upper allow breathing and are somewhat cool during warmer days.

    Simple and Bold

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    I have a couple pair of the Giro Dnd Gloves in rotation, and can't thing of anything I don't like about them. I don't expect them to last until 2025, and I don't want them to--fresh gloves are, along with cool socks and riding downhill, a pleasurable part of cycling.

    They do run a little small. I wear either Large or Extra-Large in most gloves, and I go for XL in Giro Gloves.

    Gift for boyfriend

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

    The Giro DND glove is the perfect blend of minimalist design and durability. Love the simplistic wrist cuff - no bulky zippers or velcro. Easy to put on and remove - even under sweaty on-trail conditions. I prefer the simplified plain fabric versions than those with the screen printed designs or textures. Purchased the black version but did not like the ‘harshness’ of the screen print on the top side of the glove - felt like it could be a bit ‘scratchy’ under use.

    Fits tru to size - fingers seem a bit long for my hand size however.

    Solid, Simple gloves

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    My hand circumference is a bit over 9" and fingertip - palm length is 7.75" - I bought mediums, maybe should have sized up to larges. its a tight squeeze getting them on, once they're on, they fit great. Might loosen up around the wrist after wearing them a bit more. The wrist feels tight to get on, but I would say the gloves themselves fit true to size.

    -Leather palm feels great already and will likely get broken in even more with more use. Some gloves feel loose or just not quite right when riding, these don't have that doubt at all.
    -Haven't dealt with hot spots on the gloves yet.
    -Thumb, pointer, and middle finger have a silicone for braking. Usually only use pointer, but a nice touch.
    -Backside of thumb has a soft material that won't rough up nose when wiping it.

    - Wrist of the glove is really right to get hands into. That said, I may have wanted to size up to a large, but didn't want excess material once they're on. This isn't helped by the fact that these aren't adjustable, but I wouldn't list that as a con.
    - Not exactly smartphone friendly. Can sort of work buttons, but not consistent at all.

    - Pretty solid bang-for-your-buck glove. I personally maybe should have sized up to a large, but they fit great once on. I'm happy with them and would recommend them for other people as well.

    Very tight

    • Fit: Runs small

    This is my 3rd medium size Giro "DND" and I was just surprised how tight it was compared to my last 2 sets. This one was made in Vietnam but my older sets are from China so it's probably the materials that they had used. I just hope that it will break in nicely.

    My 4th Pair.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    I use DNDs almost every day for commuting, road riding, and some dirt shredding. Giro labels these as dirt gloves, but they're amazing all-rounders. Whether I'm in the drops, or on risers, I absolutely love the barfeel of the DNDs.

    The gloves obviously don't have any velcro, so they look super clean, but that means they take a bit of a beating taking them on and off. I've had some quality issues with the gloves coming unstitched (mainly in the lycra expansion panel). But the feel, looks, and cost keeps me coming back for more pairs in more colors. These gloves fit me fairly snug, so I size up one size from my other Giro gloves.

    I love the brighter colors and use them for extra visibility during my commutes during the winter and fall. Despite their lightness, I've found they keep me warm down to the mid to lower 40s, but anything lower than that and I'm struggling to keep warm.

    Bottom line: These are winners for whatever bike I'm taking out, in almost every condition.

    Rasta Riding

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I'm a fan of Rasta riding gear, I can't help it. The gloves fit well with the pull on cuff and have been comfy with their soft thick fabric. I have used them on a handful of trail rides along with DJ and pump track sessions. So far no issues that others have experienced but as I get more use with them who knows.

    Good fit, no issues yet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    They seem to be holding up after a couple months of trail riding despite the negative reviews from others. Maybe the different colors use different material? I have the olive/yellow. Fit is great, nice and snug on the fingers. Good grip and nice to have the silicone pads.

    Great all-arounder

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

    I purchased these gloves primarily for CX, but I have ended up wearing them on the road quite a bit as well. Warm enough to work for a chilly ride, but not too much heat once it warms up. The palms are well vented and the articulated knuckles on the index and middle fingers definitely make manipulating the brake levers more comfortable.
