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.
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!
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.
