Winter is the name of the game for Giro’s glove line with five new models – in both men’s and women’s fits – arriving in time for the season’s chillier temperatures.
The US$25 Westerly (UK price TBC) blends a fleece-lined backing and silicone-dotted palm and fingers for a bit of protection on cooler days plus enhanced grip, especially when wet. The £29.99 ($35) Blaze upgrades to a Clarino palm and adds a bit of padding.
The men’s Ambient and women’s Candela – both £39.99 ($45) – add more insulation for temperatures just above freezing plus wind and water resistance and X-Static fleece linings. As with the Blaze, the Clarino palms will also include silicone-dotted fingertips and mild EVA padding.
The Ambient and Candela feature mild insulation, Clarino palms and silicone fingertips
Truly nasty conditions will call for the new Proof glove with waterproof, breathable shells, Thinsulate XT-S insulation (with more placed on the back for warmth and less underneath the hands for dexterity and bar feel), X-Static interiors plus removable Westerly gloves to be used as supplemental liners. Suggested retail price is £49.99 ($60).
Giro say their new Proof glove is suitable for sub-freezing temperatures
