Feel your bars, not the road.
Designed to soak up the sting of road vibration without inhibiting bar feel, the Giro Strate Dure Supergel Gloves provide exceptional cushioning, an ergonomic fit, and superior build quality. Originally designed for medical applications, Supergel palm inserts distribute pressure up to 300% better than standard gel for superior padding and shock absorption. They're also 30% more impact-resistant, ensuring higher levels of protection from minor spills and abrasion.
The AX Suede palm mimics the soft, supple feel of real leather, only it's made of the synthetic variety for extra durability. Along the glove's upper, you'll find four-way stretch mesh for added breathability on hot summer rides, further ventilated by the gloves open-finger design. Other functional features include a soft microfiber surface along the thumb's backside for wiping, as well as a secure hook-and-loop closure with a sonic-welded pull tab for easy on-and-off.

i ride 2-3 times a week in hot weather (florida). got these because i hoped they were similar to previous Giro gloves, since discontinued. they are terrific. comfortable, with good padding. i will note they feel very slightly smaller than the last Giro Large size gloves i had. but not enough to make me wish i had ordered a different size.

Pads you didn't think you needed
I had a basic pair of gloves and noted that pads of my hands (near wrist) were going numb during long rides (20-60mi). Purchased these and was immediately impressed on my first ride. First ride was 30 miles, no pain. A few days later, 60 mile ride, again no pain!!! What surprised me most was that the pad placement was perfect, both on the hoods and in the drops. Even padding between the thumb and index kept the ride comfy no matter where I placed my hands on the bar. Super pleased with the purchase. Size seems to run true. I'm typically wear a large glove and these have a comfortable fit and slightly on the loose side. Pros: - Pads placement where you want and didn't know you needed it - Nose wipe thumbs made of soft suede - No pain rides!!! Cons: - Velcro strap across the top of hand from the thumb base over the wrist - The Velcro barb base likes to fold over on itself and grab the shell of the gloves which may lead to wear

I recently took a nasty spill when I was cruising downhill and got a front flat tire. When I peeled myself up off of the pavement and looked at my hands, they were totally fine. The gloves really held up! You couldn't even tell they made any contact, and my skin was saved. In addition to being durable, these gloves have a nice snug fit, breathe well, and are comfortable (I think the gel is just right). They also seem to fit true to size. I purchased a large.

l'm a 60 year old disabled vet, my ortho told me the more I ride the longer my knees will last. l've messed up both my wrist from crashing my bike on trails, l've had 5 elbow surgeries, both shoulders including reconstruction on the right, right ankle tightened and left knee cleaned out. that being said, l want as much padding as I can get. these gloves cover that requirement, very well padded. the only reason I didn't go with 5 stars is they are hot. l'm in Florida and it's hot & humid and I ride everyday, and usually carry extra gloves to change into dry. l will buy another pair probably, just wish the back was a lighter material

Nice gloves. They say bright red, I say they are vermillion or reddish-orange.

I gave these gloves as a gift and they are used for mountain biking and they are great. The fit is extremely comfortable.

I use these gloves for road biking and mtb, after two years of use I am going to buy a new pair. Fwiw, had to have changed them about 6 months ago.

Thanks for the pic! Surprisingly, this is first pic I’ve seen showing the important palm side.

Great gloves for white bar tape
Unlike Giro Monaco gloves, these gloves do not leave black dye on my beautifully clean white bar tape. Saves me a lot of time, and the gloves are comfy as well.

lots of padding
great glove. but, they have a ton of gel in them. a bit too much even. Louisiana roads suck, but its not the Paris Roubaix cobbles. I feel like I could get away with less gel. But, they work as they are supposed to. My first pair had a rip in the stitching. One call to Giro, and they sent out a new pair that arrived in a few days. Great customer service.
