The BEST winter cycling gloves!
Easy to buy, fast shipping, and amazing product. I will be buying for all my cycling family! Giordana knows cycling and it shows in their products.
I have had great experiences with Giordana products. They usually are true to size. This glove runs small if you have XL hands the XXL probably will not fit. I would go with the G-shield Thermal full finger. A true to size fit and performs very well in cold weather
Very warm gloves, almost perfect.
Wanted a warm glove, but not as bulky as the Pearl Izumis I had before. These looked good, figured I would give them a shot. XL was the biggest size they had in stock at the time, and though they're right on the border for my hand measurement, I went with them. They are a bit snug to pull on, but at the same time, the fingers are a bit long. But that's my hand, big palm with little stubby fingers. And as such, I do have a little trouble grabbing zippers, or undoing the velcro tab(which should be a bit larger, btw). They also felt a bit stiff at first, and still seem a bit so, but I think they're loosening up with use. No problems shifting or braking however. But they've surpassed my expectations as a winter glove. I've worn them out in the low 20s Fahrenheit and my hands have been toasty warm at all times. The only time I've ever experienced cold hands with them is when I took them off for a while in mid-20s temps, and once I put them back on and got going again, I never could get my hands fully warmed up. But I learned my lesson, stuff them inside your jacket if you take them off outside.
Without going lobster, I think these are the warmest, most comfortable gloves I have ever tried.
Warmth with good bar feel
Used these for the first time today on a 2 hour ride averaging 40 degrees (F). First half of the ride was in the mid to high 30's and the second half was low to mid 40's. Towards the end of the ride I was actually thinking about taking them off because they were getting quite toasty. With that in mind, 40 and below these things were perfection. Fantastic warmth, but one of my favorite aspects of the glove is despite it being a serious winter glove, it is actually very fitted, reducing that bulky and goofy winter glove feel. Could use the shifters perfectly, had great feel on the hoods or drops. Really an enjoyable experience. Giordana has taken over my entire shoulder season and winter cycling wardrobe.
