2013 CYCLING GLOVES

GLOVES 101 What Is Different About Giro Gloves? Every rider benefits when equipment fits and feels like a part of them. With innovations like our unique 3-panel palm design and better materials like Technogel®, Pittards® leathers and Poron® XRD™ armoring, Giro’s range of road, dirt, winter and recreational gloves provides enhanced comfort and control that you can feel, every time you ride. Giro gloves are based on our proprietary Super Fit™ Engineering process that combines research data on human anatomy with hand-crafted refinements and a “tailored” construction. The result is a snug, near-custom feel with the support of modern materials that improve comfort and control on the bike. We offer gloves in a full range of up to 6 unisex sizes, women’s sizes, and sizes for kids under 12, so that almost any rider can find a glove that fits and feels like a part of them.

What Are the Differences Between Men’s and Women’s Hands? Women’s hands typically have a smaller palm girth and width, smaller wrist diameter and narrower fingers when compared to men’s hands.

How Does Giro’s Fit Compare to Other Brands? Giro cycling gloves offer a more precise fit–one that is snug and supportive without excess material that can bunch or wrinkle. Therefore, some riders will size up in a Giro glove compared to other brands.

How to Get the Correct Glove Size. Giro Gloves are available in unisex and women’s sizes that are tailored to the needs of cyclists. To determine your glove size, wrap a measuring tape around your dominant hand, just below your knuckles (excluding your thumb), and make a fist. This measurement is your “hand width” glove size. Since every hand is unique, use the chart below as a guide, but allow for some variance based on how the glove fits!

Also note that some Giro glove models have a slightly more “snug” fit when new, so you may need to size up from the size you usually wear or allow them some time to “break-in” for a perfect fit.

Do All Giro Gloves Fit the Same? Since our full glove line covers so many different needs and conditions, we may make adjustments to some patterns in order to create the best glove possible for each type of use or conditions. While we strive for the most consistent feel possible, this means that certain gloves may feel different than others. For instance, leather gloves will stretch and “break-in” with time and use, so they may feel snug when new compared to similar synthetic glove designs. Also, winter gloves are designed to have a little more interior volume in order to trap heat, so they may feel roomier than a comparable mountain bike or long-finger road glove.


GLOVES 101 Why Does Giro Use a 3-Panel Palm?

How Should I Clean Gloves?

The human hand is an amazingly dynamic instrument, with strength and dexterity that is essential to a rider’s control of a bike’s handling, shifting and braking. Our 3-panel design tailors the palm of the glove to better fit the contours and articulation of the hand, and optimizes the location of padding, material and seams to enhance your comfort, grip and control of the bike.

Giro gloves are made of high-performance materials that can be damaged by many common cleaners, especially petroleum-based solvents or cleaners and washing equipment. So we recommend the following methods for cleaning, storing and caring for your gloves:

FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF GIRO 3-PANEL PALM:

CLEANING SYNTHETIC GLOVES

- Proprietary unisex, women’s and kids’ sizes are designed specifically for cycling, to conform to the hand naturally when gripping a handlebar without binding or excess bunching. - Tailored 3-panel palm construction orients fabric and padding more precisely, optimizing comfort and performance for maximum control.

For best results, clean the gloves using lukewarm water and a mild liquid soap or cleaner, and allow to air dry away from direct sunlight. When almost dry, you can put the gloves on to give them shape.

What are the Differences Between Leather and Synthetic Gloves? Giro makes gloves in many configurations including classic all-leather designs, modern synthetic/natural hybrids and all-synthetic designs. Each glove is designed as a system to provide the best fit, comfort and performance from the materials used, and to provide the best coverage and control for the type of riding. - Natural leathers provide a very supple feel and aesthetic, with the ability to break-in and form to the rider’s body. With proper care, they can also be durable enough to last several seasons. - Synthetic gloves provide a supple feel and modern aesthetic, with the ability to breathe, stretch and conform to the rider’s body across a wide range of conditions. They are very durable, and require less attentive care than natural leathers. - Hybrid designs, with a natural leather palm and synthetic upper, combine the best attributes of both materials. They are light, supple and breathable, with the ability to break-in and conform to the body. - Winter gloves generally use synthetic materials to resist the elements and harsh conditions of winter riding, while insulating the body from cold and wet. We use modern insulating materials, including synthetic insulation and wool-blend removable liners where appropriate, to provide the best comfort and performance possible.

For gloves with leather, extra care will help to extend the life of the glove, and a good leather conditioner can help to keep the leather supple since washing can damage it. Step1: Use lukewarm water and mild soap to gently wash the glove (you can wear the glove while washing to help maintain the glove’s shape) Step 2: Gently pat dry with a towel to remove excess water Step 3: You can put the gloves on to give them shape, and then gently remove them. Make sure they are laid flat. Step 4: Hang to air dry away from heat or direct sunlight Step 5: When almost dry, you can put the gloves on to give them shape. You can also gently rub a good leather conditioner into the leather to help keep it supple Note: Never dry clean, bleach or tumble dry!

PROPERLY STORING GLOVES After each use remove the gloves carefully, lay them flat, and allow the gloves to air dry in an open area. Then store in a cool, dry place. Note: We strongly discourage leaving used gloves in damp, enclosed spaces (like the bottom of a gear bag) since that can inhibit proper drying and cause the leathers or other materials to become stiff or brittle.

CLEANING LEATHER / LEATHER PALM GLOVES


2013 CYCLING GLOVE TECHNOLOGY SUPER FIT ENGINEERING Super Fit™ Engineering is a proprietary process that guides the fit, design and patterning of every Giro glove for maximum comfort and performance. By carefully tailoring the palm, fingers and padding zones to match the shape and size of the hand, Super Fit™ reduces bunching and discomfort while enhancing grip, bar feel and the effectiveness of the padding.

THREE-PIECE PALM CONSTRUCTION Our unique 3-piece palm construction tailors the fit of our gloves to reduce bunching, and allows your hands to move naturally for enhanced control that doesn’t compromise bar feel. By designing each part of the palm to mimic a hand’s features and articulation, Giro gloves increase grip and provide a superior level of protection for the entire hand.

PITTARDS LEATHER Select Giro gloves feature Pittards® leathers, including Cabretta (hairsheep) leather chosen for its thin-but-tough structure. Pittards® leathers undergo a special tanning process that helps the leather to absorb less water and resist sweat better than other leathers and synthetics. In addition to outstanding performance, no other material provides the fit and comfort of natural leather; it is a difference you will feel the moment you try on a pair of Giro gloves.

CLARINO MICROFIBER Select Giro gloves feature Clarino™ microfiber which mimics the complex structure of natural leather’s supple feel with enhanced weather resistance and everyday durability. In addition to outstanding performance, Clarino™ is easy to care for, breathable, and remains soft and flexible even in cold and wet conditions, which makes it a great value as well.

AX SUEDE Giro gloves feature AX Suede™ microfiber with a supple feel and the durability to be worn every day. In addition to great feel and comfort that mimics natural suede, AX Suede™ is easy to care for, breathable, and remains soft and flexible even in cold and wet conditions, which makes it a great value as well.

COOLSKIN MICROFIBER “CoolSkin” is an exceptionally lightweight, vented fabric used in the palm of our LTZ and Rivet cloves. Along with unsurpassed airflow and breathability, it retains good structure and durability to make a lighter, cooler glove with great feel. It’s the closest you can get to a true “second skin”.

THINSULATE XT-S Select Giro winter gloves feature Thinsulate™ XT-S insulation for exceptional warmth and comfort, with X-Static® anti-microbial properties that help to control bacteria and odor. We use more insulation in the top of the gloves to provide warmth from the elements, and a little less in the palm to maintain grip and bar feel without compromising comfort.

HIPORA HIPORA® barriers are made of a waterproof film with polyurethane coating and numerous micro pores which block water from the outside, yet allow the moisture generated by the body to exit. Glove liners made with HIPORA® are waterproof, windproof and breathable all at the same time, and will keep hands dry and comfortable when the weather demands it.

PERTEX Pertex© Shield provides the perfect balance of waterproofness and breathability, with wind- and water- repellency and flexibility in a light weight material. The fabric combines advanced face fabric technology with a proprietary polyurethane film laminate that reduces internal condensation and increases comfort range. It’s also durable, making it a great choice for riding when the weather turns tough.

MERINO PERFORM

GLOVES

Merino Perform™ Advantage combines the unique, high-performance structure of Australian Merino with synthetics to create modern, lightweight fabrics. The performance benefits of this bi-component structure are enhanced moisture wicking, enhanced cooling, and greater durability with higher tension strength. The unique combination of wool and synthetics in Merino Perform™ Advantage helps to regulate body temperature and enhance comfort, so you can perform at your best.

TECHNOGEL Technogel® is a proprietary polyurethane cushioning material originally designed for medical applications. It is unique because it molds itself to the body along all three axes to distribute pressure, while traditional gel padding materials tend to deform along only one axis, which causes pressure to accumulate. In addition to superior pressure distribution (up to 300% better than standard gel) it also absorbs up to 30% more impact energy, and it does not harden or break down over time.

PORON XRD Poron® XRD™ is a soft, shock-absorbing material specifically engineered to absorb up to 90% of impact energy, without a loss of performance from repeated impacts. Using “intelligent molecules”, Poron® XRD™ remains supple and flexible until impacted, when the molecules lock together immediately to deflect and help absorb shock. Other benefits include “open cell, breathable” performance with antifungal properties, and no latex, PVCs, VOCs, or heavy metals.

TOUCHSCREEN TECHNOLOGY Capacitive touchscreens found on most mobile devices like iPhone react to natural bioelectricity in your skin. By combining a conductive fiber into the fingertips of select Giro gloves, you can stay connected to your mobile device without removing your gloves.

WOMEN’S SERIES The Women’s Series™ is a diverse collection of styles, fits and prices tailored to the tastes and needs of female riders. Not only is the level of detail and range of colors unique within the Women’s Series gloves, but they also feature female-specific sizing and patterning. That’s because most women’s hands have less volume, a narrower palm and finger lengths that differ from men’s hands.

FLEX ZONES Flex Zones™ are carefully integrated into select Giro full-finger glove patterns in order to allow the glove to mimic the hand’s natural articulation without bunching or binding. The result is a glove with a lighter, more natural feel that enhances comfort and control.
