These gloves get the job done. They are breathable, look good, have adequate padding, wash easily, and don't get stinky.
The only con: They are not as grippy as I'd like. Sometimes on a descent when I'm braking and hit a bump, my hand flies off of the handlebar and brake. Part of this could be due to the exposed fingertips versus full fingered gloves, but I'd like for the palm of my hand to stick to my bike grips too.

Comfortable riding glove...washes well and comes out soft and flexible. Good deal on a good glove.
My all-time favorite gloves
I LOVE these gloves. I have no complaints about them, whatsoever.
They provide adequate padding for longer rides. They are comfortable and well-constructed. Gloves are true to size. I like mine to be a little roomy, so my hands have space to swell on hot days when my hands get sweaty. The thumb has a great little suede-like piece that is great for wiping sweaty sunglasses.
I purchased mine nearly a year ago and wear them on almost every ride, and the padding just started to wear out recently. I ordered 3 more to have for future use, just in case Giro discontinues these.
I have bought over half a dozen gloves in the past couple of years, and these are, hands down, the winners.
