DND Limited Edition Glove
Pull on the Giro Limited Edition DND Glove before your next all-day mountain biking adventure for some serious style and unrivaled comfort on the bars. Built with a SuperFit construction, the DND's ergonomic design uses a three-panel palm to match the shape of your hand for a superior, bunch-free fit and enhanced grip, while the breathable Ax Suede synthetic leather palms, fingers, and thumbs are abrasion-resistant, yet supple for comfort. Then, the 4-way stretch fabric on the back of the glove breathes well and wicks moisture as you charge up steep trails heavily laden with roots and rocks, while the EVA foam-padded palm absorbs impact without compromising dexterity on white-knuckle descents as you open it up. Plus, the soft and highly absorbent thumb fabric wipes clean you goggle or sunnies lenses.

Just What The Homeopath Ordered
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
1.) Hands are usually L size, but since I've previously found Giro gloves run some smaller than sized, I went with the XL, and, boy howdy, with their ever so nice fit and feel, am I glad I did.
2.) XLs seem also cut nicely to fit fingers length, palm size and snug, without being too snug, around wrist.
3.) Giro eschews Velcro on these, for a small stretch band: Am thinkin' the elastic's fantastic, and these gloves will allow for silk liners - as you know, Velcro's a silk no-go.
4.) Thumb high side's got right material for brow sweat swipe, for perspiring readers.
5.) Touch screen tech cover on index and middle fingers, and thumb pad.
"If wishes were horses, beggars would ride" Neutralies:
1..) Don't figure for lots of pad; the "heel crash pad" is well placed for prospective purposes - makes sense, where you'd place hand during fall - but I'd rather not plan for that bother, and have the pad on the thumb side for some extra Ulna nerve protection...still, Giro (aka, The Tao) may know what they're doing(?).
I'll update review in future, if any real downsides rears their ugly heads. For now, don't see how you can beat the price for what these gloves offer. I really hope the stitching holds up, and the highly improbable to clean suede doesn't get too lived-in-lookin' over time.
Watch out for holier than thouites, too,
These gloves are the perfect thickness and fit for me. Breathable and durable with just the right amount of features including the touchscreen compatibility.
