Breathe in, breathe out.

Hands don't get a ton of love in the bike world, but they should. They're the interface between your body and your bike, so if they're rubbed raw, sore, and bruised, you won't be able to control your bike as well you'd like. Giro's Xen Gloves take hand protection to the next level, with plenty of DH-ready padding and XC-caliber breathability.

The upper part of your hand (knuckles, upper fingers, and outer portion) is covered by Giro's sonic-welded armor, which is accented by breathable mesh to keep your hands protected and cool. At the heel of your palm, Poron XRD padding is soft until impact, at which point it stiffens to keep your palms from getting shredded when you go over the bars. Flex zones at the knuckles and silicone print at the fingertips keep your digits dexterous and your braking reliable, respectively, and the three-piece Super Fit Clarino palm is hooked up with 2mm Technogel padding to reduce vibrations without making it feel like you're gripping your bars while wearing mittens.

  • Clarino synthetic leather palm
  • Perforated mesh back-of-hand
  • Poron XRD heel padding
  • Sonic-welded armor upper-hand padding
  • Technogel palm padding
  • Knuckle flex zones
  • Hook-and-loop closure

Here's what others have to say...



I was super excited for a new pair of gloves. Only after 8 rides, this is what happened. During all of those eight rides I stayed upright. Super bummed if this what Giro expected from their product.

These gloves are awesome. I'm a woman, and it's hard to find women's mtb gloves with knuckle protection. I've crashed pretty hard on a number of occasions (more than I'd like to admit) and these gloves have held up well. No rips or tears. My only gripe is that now after having had them a year and washing them 3 times the velcro at the wrist doesn't stay put. Fortunately, it's just an annoyance. These aren't flying off my hands, so it doesn't make that big of a difference. Will likely buy another pair (or 2)!

Love these gloves. On my third pair in 5 years with an average of 60 days a year on the bike. They tend to hold up pretty well to abuse and I end up replacing them because they stink or I want a new color. Only had one thumb blow out and that was due to having a front der. I would recommend these to avid riders who want to protect their hands for a future in modeling.

These gloves are great for hot summers here in UT. Unfortunately first day with these I laid my bike down and by default I put my hands down and ripped a hole in the palm. Though there is a hole, I still use them . Only complaint is the material on the fingers is a lightweight mesh that with religious use will not last all that long. Over all great for hot days and does what they're supposed to do.

I've had 4-5 pairs of these over the past few years & they are pretty good gloves. I keep a couple in the rotation so I always have a clean pair

I would have given 5 stars but my latest pair self destructed after just a few uses. I sent them back but still have 3 I use.

I'm a pretty solid large in most gloves & this one fits the same.

Won't last

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are extremely comfortable so I was hoping they would be my go to gloves. After about 5 or 6 rides the stitching near the joint of the my left index finger came completely undone. Returned!

Not durable

After half a dozen rides and one fall the palm completely ripped open. Unless you never plan on falling avoid these. One star because I can't give zero apparently.
