Guest Review: Giro Women’s LA DND Gloves
Read the preview here
Details: Moisture-wicking, 4-way stretch breathable mesh. Reinforced fingertips. Flex zones at the knuckles
Gloves are a necessity for me to mountain bike. Between sweaty palms, and crashing I like to keep my skin in place. I’m not needing a ton of padding, which is why these Giro gloves have been my goto choice for a few years now. Flexing in the fingers, lack of velcro to get caught in washing and an affordable price, everything I look for in a pair of XC or road gloves.
The only unfortunate piece of these gloves (as with most women’s gloves) are that the size large are too small for my long fingers.
4 out 5 as I’m very happy with the gloves but now wear the guys version.

Preview: Giro LA DND Women’s Glove
There are two styles of mountain bike gloves I use. The first is your basic, light-weight, and is really there to keep your hands from slipping off your bars when they are covered with sweat, or when you slide across the hard pack dirt trails. The second type of glove I use is for longer rides, with a bit more padding in the palm and normally a size bigger for when my hands swell and my fingers “grow.”
The Giro LA DND gloves fall into the first category, with extra points for style.
- Slip on design (no adjustable strap)
- Slim fitting
- Used on road or mtb

Short & Sweet Review: Giro DJ Gloves
Touch points on the bike are critical. I talk about saddles, shorts, grips, gloves and shoes enough that I hope you realize how important those comforts are.
Introducing Giro DJ Gloves $34.99
Last week I was in Piney Flats Bicycles in Piney Flats, TN. On their wall a rather bright pair of gloves caught my eye. Giro DJ Gloves, the padding was minimum, the venting looked great, and the wrist wrap was very comfortable. Of course I bought them. Forever I’m looking for good gloves that fit my very long, skinny, hands.
The gloves have about 4 rides on them. They are working well in the hot North Carolina temperatures. The grip is perfect. The color doesn’t match anything, but that makes it wonderful. The wrist wrap is probably more than a normal XC or roadie will like as it comes up your over your wrist. For longer rides I like the compression and for harder rides I like the grip. The gloves don’t have tons of padding, it’s more about proper contact and keeping your hands from wilting.
So far I am pleased. So much that I probably will end up ordering the orange and white ones from the Giro website. They match my bikes perfectly, that is important too.
