Riveted to the bars.

On a technical downhill or tricky singletrack, a glove flub can be the difference between navigating a tight switchback and catapulting into the trees. Giro's Rivet II Gloves are built around a minimalist palm that eschews padding and uses Giro's bunch-free Super Fit engineering to avoid that turn for the worst and keep your hands riveted to your bar. After all, mountain bike gloves should be an extension of your hands, not a hindrance to them.

The Pittards synthetic leather palm is also vented, so it doesn't smother your hands temperature-wise, either. Of course, the four-way stretch upper plays an admittedly more significant role in regulating temperature and internal moisture because it's made of an even more breathable mesh, but the fingertips sacrifice some breathability with a bit of reinforcement and silicone grip. This additional detail is well worth it, though, as it increases the gloves' longevity and keeps your fingers on the brake and shift levers in all conditions.

I thought they would be more orange

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great gloves. Nice lightweight and minimal. I thought the “vermillion” color would be orange but they are more of a “watermelon”

happy with them

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are nice light weight, breathable gloves. They are great summer gloves

Decent pick

    I have had really good luck with Giro gloves. These get a few nothches down in my voting. This particular glove is a little tricky to get on and off- has a pretty snug wrist opening compared to other Giro gloves.

    Good Summer Glove

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Excited to use these more when the temps start to warm up. Really comfortable and fit great, they also seem to be very breathable.

    Maybe too light?

      My girlfriend likes these, but they're on the thin side. They feel good though! Fit is spot on, and materials feel great! Stay tuned for updates....

      Great, for about a week

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

      I really liked the feel and fit of these, my partner and I both got a pair, and they both had large holes in less than a month of use. In both cases they started separating around the seems around the thumb.

      Not as durable as they seem

        Generally a solid glove. Fit and breath well. But after two months of use, the stitching near the wrist is already coming apart. Am wondering if others had or are having the same problem. I take care of my stuff and expect it to last. Not sure if these will. Hence the 1 star.

        Minimal Glove

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

        Great minimalist glove. I use them for the mountain and road. They've held up in some tumbles in the dirt and kept my hands safe. Like others have mentioned, they have no padding, which is a plus for me most days. I think I will use a glove with some more padding for long days in the bike park.
        These are also my favorite gloves for the road because I want a little more protection than half finger gloves provide in the case of a crash. Because of their minimal design I can easily work Di2 buttons.
        They do not provide much warmth but they ventilate well in warm temperatures. They also dry quickly which makes cleaning very easy. I throw them in the wash with my other gear every few rides and hang dry and each time they come out nice and bright again!

        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.

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

        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.

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

        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.

        The no glove

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        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.

        Light duty

        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

        The perfect glove for any bike adventure

        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.

        The perfect glove for any bike adventure
