The Good: fit, fabrics, construction and feel on the bars
The Bad: Nothing yet but I've only got a handful of rides on them. The stitching and panels are all looking and performing as good as day 1.
Ok to start off I bought these from jensonusa.com and was super pumped on how they handled the transaction and timing on the standard shipping, I got them right away.
About the gloves: Giro offers a solid glove design. I have always been a Troy Lee XC glove guy which are still fantastic. That being said these have some outstanding ride qualities that helped them stand tall. I really like the feel on the hand, it's like a compression wrap for your hand that does not fatigue or stress your grip in anyway. They feel lighter than my TLD, I'm not a weight weenie and NO, I didn't not put them on a scale. Standard features I look for are absorbent back of the thumb, good bar feel and sensation, closure is adequate. I got them because they were on special at Jenson for a fraction of the cost of a TLD glove but was concerned about the little pads on the callus area and heel of the palm. They are non issues as soon as my hand grabbed the bars they disappeared, meaning the callus pads couldn't be felt decreasing my tactile feedback from the bars and the palm pad didn't even touch the bar until my riding stance totally relaxed and I sat back to start the climbing. Giro kicks butt. These 2011's may not have the 2014 fabrics or patterns but I'll be looking at their stuff in the future and would absolutelyrecommend these.
