Product Description

Tame the toughest trails with the Giro Strade Dure Supergel cycling mitts designed for exceptional cushioning thanks to Dual Layer Technogel and Rebound Foam padding. Giro’s exceptional Super Fit ergonomic design and high-quality construction enhance the fit and feel of the mitts 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.

Key Features:

Palm

  • Super Fit™ three-panel design, AX Suede™ Synthetic Leather, Sonic Welded Pull Tab

Upper

  • Moisture-wicking, 4-way stretch, Breathable Mesh, Highly Absorbent Microfiber Wiping Surface, Low-Profile Velcro™ Closure

Padding

  • 2mm Technogel / 4mm Rebound Foam Padding

Super Fit Engineering

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. And with as many as six sizes available per model, almost any rider can great pair of gloves to match their needs.

Technogel

Technogel is a proprietary polyurethane material originally designed for medical applications. We use Technogel for the padding in our 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.

Giro gloves with Technogel offer:

  • Superior pressure distribution – up to 300% better than standard gel, for enhanced comfort and protection from numbness over long periods of time.
  • Excellent impact absorption – up to 30% better than standard gel, for protection from shocks and vibrations.
  • Long-lasting performance - it does not harden or break down over time, so the glove stays supple and comfortable mile after mile.

Three-Piece Palm Construction:

Our unique 3-piece palm construction tailors the fit of our 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 offer a superior level of protection for the entire hand.

1 - THUMB The Super Fit Engineered thumb panel is essential to offer a snug fit with your hand while also allowing freedom of movement and enhanced grip necessary for maximum control and bar feel.

2 - PALM The Super Fit Engineered palm panel is optimized to offer 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 offering a layer of protection.

3 – BODY The Super Fit Engineered body of a Giro glove is designed to support your hand’s natural movement while offering a platform for padding and protection where you need it most. By optimizing the thickness and placement of padding with integrated Flex Zones, Giro gloves offer a more natural movement of fingers and joints.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Disappointing
by Anonymous user on 18/09/2020

Needed a new pair of well padded mitts to protect my hands. At first glance these gloves looked great; they fit well and have good solid gel pads.Sadly after only three rides of 40-50k each, one of the gloves has already split at the seam on the index finger. As it's along the seam they can be restitched, but nevertheless, very disappointed at the lack of durability of a Giro product;had hoped for better. The pads are actually quite effective at absorbing shock, so will repair and persevere for now.

Excellent padding
by Anonymous user on 19/08/2020

Highly recommend - very comfortable to wear, nice to have some colour on a glove so that driver can see your hand signals, and really great padding to prevent sore hands.

Cycling Gloves Guide

What are cycling gloves?

Cycling gloves are specially adapted to cosset your hands while riding. Cycling can put a lot of pressure on your palms, so dedicated bike gloves are very important.

Who needs cycling gloves?

Every rider will benefit from gloves. They aren’t just to keep your hands warm – they provide grip, protection and essential padding.

What are the choices?

Long fingered for winter, short fingered or mitts for summer. Off roaders might want long gloves, perhaps with armoured knuckles, all year round. There are gloves with minimal padding and seams, or mitts with gel cushioning to protect your nerves.

What should I buy with it?

More gloves! Most cyclists will need a long fingered pair of gloves in winter and mitts for summer.

Anything else?

About that little bit of terry fabric on the thumb – yes, it really is for wiping your snotty nose on as you ride. Because of this, you really need to be washing your gloves as often as you wash the rest of your kit.

See our Cycling gloves guide for more.
