Giro has launched their 2010 cycling gloves for road and mountain bike use, including both Summer and Winter models.
Shown above is their LX Full Finger “luxury” road cycling gloves. Ã‚Â It uses the same Pittards leather as their short-fingered LX glove (formerly called the Lusso), which are very, very nice. Ã‚Â The leather uppers are mated with wool stretch panels and a Pittards leather palm with Technogel padding in the heel of the palm. Ã‚Â They have a Velcro closure with metal accents and are available in five sizes (S-XXL). Ã‚Â MSRP $70.00.
On the trail side, they have their new DJ, a dirt jump and trail glove made to be durable enough to take the occasional spill. Ã‚Â They have a moisture wicking 4-way stretch upper with reinforced fingertips and a Clarino palm with 3mm EVA crash pad. Ã‚Â Also available in 5 sizes. MSRP $34.00.
