When you like a firm grip on the bars, feeling the bumps with a consistent level of damping, Giordana's Women's Corsa Gloves provide the grip you need. The palm is the main story of the Corsa. Giordana applies foam padding to the three critical areas of the hand: the thumb, the heel, and the ball. By moving the padding outward, it covers pressure points while still allowing the glove to move with your hand. Foam padding compresses while riding, giving a little bit of insulation while still allowing a super firm grasp. The back is a traditional and successful mix of Lycra and synthetic terry cloth. The Lycra provides a snug fit and helps hold the palm of the glove against the hand while the terry is there for wiping brows and noses. The Giordana Women's Corsa Lycra Glove has reflective elements on the back. It is secured to the hand with a hook and loop closure. Women's gloves are different than Men's in terms of the size range. A Women's Small would equal a Men's XX Small, if such a size existed. Sizes run from Small to X Large.
