A premium, performance glove made for long hours on the road, with style and
patterning that is tailored for women. The Giro Monica Cycling Glove for women
is the most full-featured glove in the Giro line. Designed for high-performance
and high-mileage riders, the 3-piece Super Fit™ palm and breathable construction
is combined with Technogel® padding for exceptional pressure distribution,
ventilation, and fit.
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
- Select Giro gloves feature Pittards cabretta (hairsheep) leather chosen for
its thin-but-tough structure. Pittards leathers undergo a special tanning
process that helps the leather to absorb less water and resist sweat better than
other leathers and synthetics. In addition to outstanding performance, no other
material provides the fit and comfort of natural leather; it is a difference you
will feel the moment you try on a pair of Giro gloves.
- Technogel is a proprietary polyurethane material originally designed for
medical applications. Giro uses Technogel for the padding in their 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.
Three-Piece Palm Construction
– Giro’s unique 3-piece palm construction tailors the fit of their gloves to
reduce bunching, and allows your hands to move naturally for enhanced control
that doesn’t compromise bar feel. By designing each part of the palm to mimic a
hand’s features and articulation, Giro gloves increase grip and provide a
superior level of protection for the entire hand.
1 - THUMB
The Super Fit Engineered thumb panel is essential to providing a snug fit with
your hand while also allowing freedom of movement and enhanced grip necessary
for maximum control and bar feel.
2 - PALM
The Super Fit Engineered palm panel is optimized to provide a snug, comfortable
fit without bunching when you grip the handlebar. By carefully sizing the palm
to match the natural curve of the hand, Giro gloves remain supple while
providing a layer of protection.
3 – BODY
The Super Fit Engineered body of a Giro glove is designed to support your hand’s
natural movement, while providing a platform for padding and protection where
you need it most. By optimizing the thickness and placement of padding with
integrated Flex Zones, Giro gloves offer a more natural movement of fingers and
- Although there is no difference between male and female head shapes other than
a smaller average size, Giro offers women's specific models to keep up with the
fashion forward kit found on the road. Finishing details and a sophisticated
color palette set these models apart.
