Giro's Strade Dure Supergel Short Finger was designed for exceptional cushioning thanks to Dual Layer Technogel Rebound Foam padding. The exceptional Super Fit ergonomic design and high-quality construction enhance the fit and feel, to eliminate the bulky feel of other ultra plush gloves. And with the durability of AX Suede palms, you can keep going when the road ends. Super Fit Engineering is a proprietary process that guides the fit, design and patterning of every Giro glove for maximum comfort and performance. By carefully tailoring the palm, fingers and padding zones to match the shape and size of the hand, Super Fit Engineering reduces bunching and discomfort while enhancing grip, bar feel and the effectiveness of the padding. 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.
- Technogel: proprietary polyurethane material originally designed for medical applications. Giro uses Technogel for the padding in their 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.
- Super Fit Engineered Thumb Panel: essential to providing a snug fit with your hand while also allowing freedom of movement and enhanced grip necessary for maximum control and bar feel.
- Super Fit Engineered Palm Panel: optimized to provide a snug, comfortable fit without bunching when you grip the handlebar. By carefully sizing the palm to match the natural curve of the hand, our gloves remain supple while providing a layer of protection.
