Women’s Monica Road Cycling Glove has the best fit, feel and features for long
hours on the road, sized and styled for women. The Monica 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.
Padding - Technogel
is a proprietary polyurethane material originally designed for medical
applications. Giro uses Technogel 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. Technogel provides up to
300% better than standard gel, for enhanced comfort and protection from numbness
over long periods of time, up to 30% better than standard gel, for protection
from shocks and vibrations and does not harden or break down over time, so the
glove stays supple and comfortable mile after mile.
Super Fit -
Super fit is a
proprietary design process Giro uses to optimize their gloves for comfort and
performance. By carefully tailoring the palm, fingers and padding zones to match
the shape and size of the hand, Super Fit Engineered gloves significantly reduce
bunching and discomfort while enhancing grip, bar feel and the effectiveness of
the padding. With as many as five sizes available per model, it adds up to a
great pair of gloves that practically disappear when you put them on.
Leather Palm - Giro
gloves feature Pittards WR100X leather. This premium-quality leather comes from
the Cabretta (hairsheep) and is 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.
Nothing provides the fit, comfort and performance of leather; it is a difference
you will feel the moment you try on a pair of Giro gloves.

that with naturally tanned leather it is normal to see some “dye transfer” to
your hands for the first couple of rides. This is harmless and should dissipate
quickly after a washing of the gloves.
