Giro GA Zero SC - Blue
It's summer. It's hot and humid. You're coming round into the final meters of the twilight criterium on the right wheel. You're about to drop 20-something watts/kilogram onto the road, and a slippery grip on the drops would spell disaster for you and everyone trying to overtake you. But you've got the Giro Zero II Gloves. And you've got that wheel. And you've got to open it up.
The Zero II Gloves will help you arrive, with the least amount of padding on your palm, so you feel the bar, the bike, the road, putting you in complete control when it really counts. The Pittards leather palm is bunch-free courtesy of Giro's Super Fit construction, so it keeps your grip true when the power meter's going nuts. It's also surprisingly breathable which, combined with the four-way stretch mesh upper, keeps slippery sweat from accumulating between your hands and the gloves, even during those balmy twilight crits of late summer. The gloves are finished with a sleek, slip-on cuff, because you gave up hook-and-loop straps when you upgraded categories.
