Giro Releases new SupernaturalTM Cycling Gloves with EIT Palm Technology
Giro expands long-time partnership with Elastic Interface®: the new Supernatural Gloves feature the EIT Palm Technology, the three-dimensional, elastic Palm developed by the Italian chamois leader.
Elastic Interface® and Giro have worked together for many years, being Elastic Interface® the premium partner of Giro for cycling pads. Now, that partnership includes the new Supernatural gloves, which incorporates an exclusive design of the EIT Palm Technology, co-developed specifically for gloves.
EIT Palm Technology by Elastic Interface® delivers the first ever three-dimensional, seamless and elastic palm to be developed for cycling gloves, and takes the protection and comfort of your hands on the handlebars to a whole new level. Elastic Interface® developed the EIT Palm Technology with support from the University of Padua Department of Biomedical Sciences, and its construction is patented.
This innovation has enabled the EIT palm to become a revolutionary detail that transforms how we experience hand-to-bar comfort when riding a bike; the “chamois for your hand” adapts perfectly to the shape of the hand, improves blood flow, and dramatically reduces soreness in the ulnar nerve- so no more tingling fingers. Revealed to the world in September 2019, the Elastic Interface® Palm Technology is the result of years of R&D in the field of cycling pads, which made Elastic Interface® the global leader of comfort in the saddle.
The EIT Palm brings Elastic Interface® to two of the three contact points between cyclists and their bikes; the saddle, with the cycling pads for shorts and bibs, and the handlebars, with gloves featuring the EIT Palm Technology.
Giro is the first US brand to feature the EIT Palm with its Supernatural Gloves, which have a proprietary design of the technology developed by Elastic Interface®. With a 3-D molded multi-density padding, this “chamois for your hands” exploits Elastic Interface®’s decades of chamois development that has made them the global leader in rider comfort. The partnership between Giro and Elastic Interface® began years ago, with Giro being the first brand to adopt Elastic Interface®’s ECO Performance Fabrics and shared commitment to sustainability in cycling apparel. This expanded partnership further strengthens that relationship and commitment to improving the ride experience for all cyclists. Supernatural gloves are available in Giro’s 2021 Spring/Summer collection.
