Giro’s new ultralight mitts are ideal if you want palm protection with a ‘barely there’ feel. The supple Cool Skin perforated palm is unpadded, so you’ll get gloveless levels of feedback. Typically good Giro cut and the Lycra back give great fit and feel.
The long edge (or closure-free) cuff with silicon gripper extends the invisible feel right up over your wrist too. For triathletes and those who can’t bear to encase their paws in protection, these gloves are a good option. They’re superb performers and represent decent value for money.
