Full fingered gloves find their way into our riding wardrobe year round. In the winter they protect our hands from the elements and in the summer, from carnage in the peloton. The light-weight construction of the Giro Bravo LF Gloves makes them a perfect choice for warm weather rides when you want extra protection against the tarmac. The gloves take inspiration from their short fingered cousin of the same name, using a simple design with a sturdy palm construction and breathable uppers to keep your hands comfortable and dry.
The palms of the Bravo gloves are made with soft, durable AX suede. It’s sewn into a three-piece design to fit the natural curve of your hand and prevent bunching when you grip the bars. Since AX suede is a microfiber that mimics real suede, it retains the same breathable properties you find in most microfibers to help keep your hands dry. Your palms are one of three contact points your body has with the bike and hold up a significant amount of body weight, which can lead to your hands going numb if they aren't supported. Giro uses Gel padding throughout high-pressure areas on the palms to prevent numbness and keep your hands comfortable.
Though these are full-fingered gloves, Giro didn't overlook the necessity of breathability while riding in warm weather. The Bravo gloves have a moisture-wicking, mesh top that stretches with you as you vary your hand position on the bars. The top of the thumbs are finished with a soft, absorbent microfiber so you can wipe perspiration from your face and glasses without scratching them. The gloves sit low on the wrist and use a hook-and-loop closure to secure them.
The Giro Bravo Gloves are available in five sizes between Small and XX-Large.
