Review: 2015 Giro DND gloves

the durability, and wear resistance of these gloves are much better than then Remedy X gloves,because there is no horrible hook & loop strap that wears out.

I have used these gloves about the same time as the remedy x gloves but these gloves will last much longer.

my knuckle size is 21cm,  and i used size large.

Depending on your hand these might be a con or a pro: if you got abnormal big wrist bone and thick thumps these gloves are for you.

  • the thumb is bit too big for me
  • the wrist is too big for me.

 

Pros:

  • elastic part on side wrist to help with fit.
  • durable
  • very breathable
  • sweat wipe material on the side of the thumbs

Cons:

  • The seams inside,result in less comfort than Poc’s gloves,but nto so bad that I would not wear them.
  • no Velcro strap for the best fit
  • no touch screen support

long term review: Mavic Stratos gloves

if you are used to Shimano or Giro gloves, get a size smaller,atleast if you are in europe.

i got these in large but they are too big for me,hopefully i get these in medium.

this is a well made glove.

these gloves do not have padding,this might be a negative thing to you, but if you use ESI grips, or another silicone grip, you wont regret having this glove.

i use ESI Chunky green grips with these gloves its a good combo.

but on hard grips like those that came with all my trek bikes, it will be uncomfortable and you will get fatigue

afther a crash the stitching on the left thumb ripped, but nothing that you cant fix with soem sewing.

cons: 

the price,but its was worth it for me i did not wear it out just in few weeks.

rubber on finger tips will eventually wear out,(the the glue will be worn out)

pros:

  • good feel, you feel every thing you touch the glove is not restricting your movement.
  • Breathable perfect for hot weather
  • easy to take & off
  • material used for the palm is strong, my experience wit hthis material is that it last a very long time.
  • come in 2 color choises
  • grips well i have tried them on Easton mtb grip,bontrager grips, and esi grips.
  • rubber on the finger tips for extra grip, they actually work, not like on Shimano gloves that make it slippery.
  • only wear is the rubber grips that are gloves on the finger tips.but just one of those loosened,
  • the materials used are strong,
  • will fit very thick hands

shimano EXPLORER LONG GLOVE- low quality gloves

Size: i purschased these in size Medium,they fit well,but shimano the Bontrager gloves i had were size large

cycling:

Ather some weeks the gloves show signs of use on the material used on the grey/pink part of the fingers

ather few months with riding

very breathable

the finger tip stripes will fall off afther some weeks of riding,they are pointless they do nto provide extra grip

the finger tips got worn out on theindex fingers

if you crash and fall on the asphalt the the synthethic leather can ripp little bit,if its a big rash they will proobably be ruined, it depends how hard  you hit the ground.

the thumb part changed color from black to brown on my pair i use for riding.

in october they were totally worn out. stitches broke on the fingers.

the gloves could use soem more padding

simracing:

i have 2 pairs of this glove. they don’t look that mutch used .

if you are a drifter they will be worn out as fast as on a mountainbike.

PROS

  •  comfortable
  • breathable

cons 

not durable

the shapes on the finers do nto give you extra grip

the touch fasteners straps wornout afther few months,

no tourch screen support on the finger tips

conclusion

i can’t recomend these gloves
