The enlightened trail gloves: the Xen full finger gloves by Giro
The Xen gloves balance supple, lightweight feel with the durability needed for all-day, all-mountain riding. The Super Fit engineered palm is made of hard-wearing Clarino and tailored for incredible fit and bar feel. A Poron XRD crash pad wraps from the heel around the lateral edge of the hand for added cushioning in the event of a fall, and Touchscreen Technology in the fingertips let you navigate digital devices without taking them off.

Super Fit™ Engineering:
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.
Three-Piece Palm Construction:
Giro‘s unique 3-piece palm construction tailors the fit of our 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.
Flex Zones are carefully integrated into select Giro full-finger glove patterns in order to allow the glove to mimic the hand's natural articulation without bunching or binding. The result is a glove with a lighter, more natural feel that enhances comfort and control.
Poron XRD is a soft, shock-absorbing material specifically engineered to absorb up to 90 % of impact energy, without a loss of performance from repeated impacts. Poron XRD remains supple and flexible until impacted, when the molecules lock together immediately to deflect and help absorb shock. Other benefits include open cell, breathable performance with antifungal properties, and no use of latex, PVCs, VOCs, or heavy metals. In many cases, PORON XRD material is also thinner, more flexible and less dense than competitive materials, so you get a more natural feel with less weight and bulk compared to traditional padding!
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.
