Giro Gilman gloves – review

“Urban” gloves, these; designed, apparently, for nights out on the town, they boast a stylish appearance that won’t look out of place off the bike and in the wine bar. Well, maybe so; We’ll spend some time so attired and get back to the readers.

More importantly, Giro’s Gilman gloves are the perfect weight for this time of year. The combination of a thin fabric upper – described by Giro as four-way stretchable and moisture-wicking – and three panel palm in Clarino synthetic leather provides enough insulation to keep hands snug without cossetting them to the point of overheating.

Details include a super-thin shock-absorbing EVA pad under the heel of the palm, silicon gripper patterning printed onto the thumb and first two fingers, a leather strap with popper for a secure fit around the wrist and a leather pull patch on the underside of each wrist. The shape is achieved using something called SuperFit™, which means each glove fits like a – er – glove…

So, here’s a snug-fitting, lightweight, pleasingly styled cycling glove suitable for moderately chilly weather – or really cold conditions if you have warm hands. House Black probably looks the best.

Giro Gilman gloves £29.99; sizes Small – X Large; colours Brown/Plaid, Houndstooth (shown), Black/Tan, House Black
