We'll pass the comments along to our glove PM. Can you tell us which model you've had trouble with and when you purchased them?

@heatproofgenie: We support Virginia Tech’s efforts to help riders make informed choices with a rating system based on their unique testing. Their work has been both praised and questioned by many, but their list of helmets does give the indication that rotational mitigation technology is performing as intended as brands drive the use of that technology forward. However, one key thing to consider when thinking about test results: VT is only one test methodology of many that we work with, and as we’ve said before, lab results cannot correlate exactly to your results from a real-world crash. We always recommend choosing the right style of helmet for the type of riding that you do. -Dz

ER: Try on a pair that's a 1/2 size up to see how it feels. The difference in length will be approximately +/- 2mm so that could be all you need.

Thank you Pinkbike readers for all your thoughtful questions, comments and feedback! I am passionate about creating apparel that makes the ride better, and doing it in the most responsible and sustainable way possible. Keep an eye on our growing Renew Series for more sustainable products. If you have more questions about the Renew Series or the apparel line, I will be doing a live Q&A on Giro's Instagram account this afternoon at 2PM PST. Happy Earth Day! -ME

Hey thanks for the props! Trail days are a great way to meet other riders! I size up slightly when I know I’m going to be spending more time hiking than pedaling. With my VR90 I prefer it snug (and my toes touch the front when I walk), but I’m not generally hiking much in those. As for Chamber II and Ventana, I wear those for the adventure rides that will require more time off the bike, so I go a half size larger. -DZ

ER: Please contact Customer Service regarding the gloves, thanks! As for Merino vs. Recycled - we are still learning. But here are a lot of factors that define environmental burden of a textile or product and everything makes an impact. Among other things, Merino has a very long transit loop (coming from NZ) and it takes a lot of water to feed sheep... in the end, we think Recycled content helps make a positive impact by reducing waste, reducing burden on natural resources and in some cases it improves the natural world (the nylon in our Renew Bibs is made from reclaimed fishing nets that otherwise do a lot of damage to coral and kill a lot of sea life). We keep learning as we go, and doing our best to find the best balance. Thanks for a great question.

We're not your brand for that. Giro's experience in the realm is limited (to say the least). -DZ

We work with Virginia Tech directly to help them determine which helmet models to test and make sure they get what they need to perform that testing. In the end, Virginia Tech chooses the models and we merely provide input. -DZ
