The LX combines the craftsmanship, styling and luxurious feel from road gloves of the past with contemporary performance features like super Fit engineering, technogel padding, and reflective details. The redesigned and simplified upper improves comfort with a clean, classic look. The result is a pair of gloves that deliver comfortable, reliable grip and protection, mile after mile.
Three-Piece Palm Construction Giro’s unique 3-piece palm construction tailors the fit of their gloves to reduce bunching, and allows your hands to move naturally for enhanced control that doesn’t compromise bar feel. By designing each part of the palm to mimic a hand’s features and articulation, Giro gloves increase grip and provide a superior level of protection for the entire hand.
Pittards Leather Select Giro gloves feature Pittards cabretta (hairsheep) leather chosen for its thin-but-tough structure. Pittards leathers undergo a special tanning process that helps the leather to absorb less water and resist sweat better than other leathers and synthetics. In addition to outstanding performance, no other material provides the fit and comfort of natural leather; it is a difference you will feel the moment you try on a pair of Giro gloves.
Technogel Technogel is a proprietary polyurethane material originally designed for medical applications. We use Technogel for the padding in our premium gloves because of its superior pressure distribution characteristics. When pressed between the glove and handlebar, Technogel molds itself to the hand by deforming along all three axes. Normal padding materials tend to deform only along one axis which causes pressure to accumulate in the direct contact zones.
back: extra soft Cabretta leather
Palm: Super Fit 3-piece, Pittards WR100X leather with micro-ventilation pores
Who does not shy away from the price gets the expected performance: soft, cuddly leather that lays like a second skin over the hands and offers great grip - pleasing padded inner surfaces that adapt to the movement of the hand and also provide the fuller grip joy.
Wer den Preis nicht scheut bekommt die zu erwartende Leistung: weiches, anschmiegsames Leder, das sich wie eine zweite Haut über die Hände legt und viel Griffigkeit bietet - bei erfreulich gepolsternten Innenflächen, die sich der Handbewegung anpassen und auch durch den volleren Griff Freude bereiten.
