The Xen glove balances a lightweight feel with the durability needed for all-day, all-mountain riding. The Super Fit engineered palm is made of supple Clarino and tailored to minimize excess material so you get maximum control and comfort.
Super Fit Engineering reduces bunching and discomfort while enhancing grip, bar feel and the effectiveness of the padding
Technogel for the padding provides superior pressure distribution - up to 300% better than standard gel, for enhanced comfort and protection from numbness over long periods of time
When pressed between the glove and handlebar, Technogel molds itself to the hand by deforming along all three axes
Excellent impact absorption - up to 30% better than standard gel, for protection from shocks and vibrations
Poron XRD is a soft, shock-absorbing material specifically engineered to absorb up to 90% of impact energy, without a loss of performance from repeated impacts
Long-lasting performance - it does not harden or break down over time, so the glove stays supple and comfortable mile after mile
You know about Giro gloves but did you know there are also Giro shoes?

Q: Is this a women's glove ? The sizing chart is for women.
Great feel and look. Padding and protection where I like it. Extra cushion in the palm is nice for the long grind. My hands are not huge, but felt the large ran a bit snug. The gloves may stretch out more after more use.
I'm a big guy. With that said, I have squatch hands. I've never had any luck with major competitors brands I.e. Fox, answer, azonic etc... I've been through two pair of these in xxl. First pair withstood about 4 months. But the second pair are 10 months going strong paired with hard compound odi Troy lee grips so for the money I'm impressed. These are sized a bit small so keep that in mind if you have long fingers or just cut the tips out.
Maybe I got a dud pair, or maybe 6 months is the life expectancy of biking gloves. Either way, that's what I got. They're both tearing in the same spot... at the base of the thumb where the black material is sewn to the seam in the leather palm. Now I have to get new ones. Maybe I'll try a different brand this time.
