Strate Dure Supergel Glove - Men's

Size Chart


Nurse your hands.

While most of Giro's cycling kit is designed to downsize the overwrought design elements that plague the industry, the Giro Strate Dure Supergel Gloves actually downsizes the bulk of its respective competitors. It's the cure for anyone who enjoys palm padding that eats up road vibrations but doesn't completely eliminate tactile feel between hands and bars. With their medical-grade padding, the Strate Dure Gloves let you feel the hoods without feeling the road.

The Strate Dure Gloves feature Giro's Supergel inserts in the palms. Supergel was actually designed for medical applications, so it’s definitely up to the task of nursing your hands through sections of rough road or trail. It's able to deform on three axes instead of the usual one, so it doesn't create pressure points. In fact, Giro claims that Supergel distributes pressure 300% better than standard gel padding. It also offers a 30% gain in impact resistance and no hardening over time. All of this, and it doesn't recreate the unwieldy bulk of typical padded gloves.

The AX Suede palms mimic leather's suppleness but with added durability, so they won't grind to pieces over the course of your next century or on a rough enduro course. They're mated to four-way stretch, breathable mesh uppers, for a firm fit that doesn't restrict shifting and braking or stifle your hands on hot summer days. The gloves are finished with a hook-and-loop strap at the cuff and a soft, microfiber panel for wiping your brow during hot ascents.

Poor sizing

I've used it several times

Measured my hand as suggested at 8.5". Bought a mens large just for wiggle room and previous experience with other gloves. These wouldnt even get across my fingers. Dont recommend as how can you size???

They fit small

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
6' 3"

I allways use size L, so I ordered 2 pair of gloves on that size, but they fit snug and my hands start to feel numb after a couple of minutes on the saddle. The quality and the colors are great, so sad to give them away.

Comfortable, but not well made

I've used it several times

Within less than ten wearings, the seam on the thumb has come apart. Otherwise, the gloves seem OK. I'm a little worried about the velcro, though. It's got the "micro" style of velcro and in the past, I've found that those lose their stickiness pretty easily. Having to deal with RMA and return shipping for a store credit of $35 is hardly worth the inconvenience. I'll just write this off as poor purchase and buy my next pair of gloves at my LBS.
