Take the longer trail.
Your hands are easy to neglect when you're heading out on a ride, but once you try a great pair of gloves, you never forget the benefits of added grip and protection on the trails. Giro's Xena Gloves for women provide breathable comfort and full-finger coverage for your hands.
The palms of the gloves are made with soft, durable AX Suede synthetic leather. It’s sewn into a three-piece design to fit the natural curve of your hand and prevent bunching when you grip the bars. AX Suede retains the same breathable properties you find in most microfibers to help keep your hands dry. Your hands are one of three contact points your body has with the bike and hold up a significant amount of body weight, so Giro uses Poron XRD padding throughout high-pressure areas on the palms to prevent numbness during long days on the trails.
Though these are full-fingered gloves, Giro didn't overlook the necessity of breathability while riding in warm weather. The Xena Gloves have a moisture-wicking mesh upper that stretches with you as you vary your hand position on the bars. The top of the thumbs are finished with a soft, absorbent microfiber so you can wipe perspiration from your face and glasses without scratching them.

From my sisters perspective:
These gloves are great! They fit well to your hand, and cushion well on long descents. My hands also don't get too hot in them which is really nice! I love them!
