Be one with your bars.
Your butt, feet, and hands are the interfaces between you and your steed, and while you pay plenty of attention to your chamois and shoes, gloves get about as much love as a dog that pooped in your bed. Giro's Monica Women's Glove would never soil your sheets, though, because it's too busy keeping you cool with its stretchy mesh upper and half-finger design. The palm is made of flexible Pittard leather, which won't crack or stiffen, and outfitted with 3mm Technogel padding, which provides lightweight comfort on long rides and absorbs vibrations caused by rough roads. A small hook-and-loop strap seals the Monica around your wrist to keep out dirt and dust, too, so you can focus on riding and not on the pebble that's somehow wedged itself under your palm.

Great for Summer Riding
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I bought these gloves because when I'm climbing, my hands sweat like crazy and slip off the handlebars no matter what. The ventilation is great and I have a strong grip on my bars.
The Women love them!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
I got these as a gift and they absolutely love them. The support and the overall vibration control is great! For this price you can't go wrong!
You need these
I have tried other women's gloves (Pearl Izumi and Louis Garneau), but these are by far the best gloves I have purchased due to comfort and build quality. I know these gloves will last me for more than a year of hard riding. I like that they have 2 pull tabs on the fingers so they come off easily. They do not hurt my "hand web" and the pittards are incredibly soft and absorb a lot of shock. They're also great for wiping away your snot if your nose runs constantly.
How to wash: I wash them in the washing machine and lay them out to dry. They dry very quickly (within a day usually)
