Giro takes comfort, quality and durability to heights not often seen in gloves. The Monaco gloves use Technogel padding for its superior pressure distribution, excellent impact absorption and protection from numbness. The palms are cut from premium-quality Pittards leather. This thin-but-tough leather absorbs less water and resists sweat better than other leathers and synthetics. But it's the fit that really shines on the Monacos. The palms don't bunch under your hands, giving you the best possible feel on your bars. Long rides, short rides, on road or off; these may be your new favorite gloves.
