Giro Monaco Gloves

No need to white knuckle.

The Monaco Gloves are cut along Giro’s Super Fit Engineering, which gives them a contoured shape, even before you put them on. This minimizes bunching at the knuckles and the palm, which leads to less pinching when you wrap your fingers around the bars. The Pittards leather palm is similarly cut, and the heel and outside feature a Technogel padding that is just thick enough to alleviate discomfort and numbness. The backs of the Gloves are sewn from breathable four-way stretch mesh, while the thumb is sewn with microfiber to wipe sweat from your brow.

Monaco!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Great construction and padding. Not sure why they use white on the palms? I usually get XL in gloves and did the same with these, but they do run a little tight.

Classic.

    I bought these as a gift for a friend. Per their feedback, the fit is true to size and they're comfortable. So, I guess what more can you ask for?

    Look Nice, WAY too small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Normally I wouldn't bother to post a review as it isn't uncommon to see variations in size in clothing... but these are so ludicrously small that it seemed appropriate to comment. The size chart on these says Large (9-9.75in.) My hand crrcumference is 9.25 inches, so I should be near the low end of the range on these. Not even close -- these are far, far too small. I literally cannot even pull them onto my hand. See pic.

    Nice feeling gloves

    • Fit: Runs small

    We'll see the longevity but on first ride they are uber nice and comfy. However, they run a bit small. I'm typically a Large and I needed an XL.

    • Fit: True to size

    I am a big fan of these because of the extensive padding. I expected them to not be very durable, because the microfiber is sewn directly to palm. Impressively they are holding up well, and I have put them through the ringer.

    Sizing is pretty normal, I ordered a XL and it fits great. I have gotten quite a bit of stretching in the thumb area though. I purchased the black/white palm which looked great new but as you can see gets a lil' filthy.

    She likes them!

    Haven't heard much from the lady regarding these but she had no complaints after her 6hr ride the other day!

    Nice for a couple of weeks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are ok gloves. The padding location is a little strange for a road bike. I've had them about three weeks and they are starting to fall apart.

    The stitching on my pair is already coming apart at the web/thumb area after only about 4 or 5 rides. They are comfortable but I wouldn't pay full price for them.
