Giro Xena Women's Mountain Bike Gloves (Black/White) (S)
SUPER FIT™ ENGINEERING FOR GLOVES:
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 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 provide:
- 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.
