These Castelli Roubaix gel gloves are a fantastic option for any rider wanting a smooth ride on lumpy surfaces. The beautifully soft gel padding and cushioning will absorb the shocks and jolts. With breathability built in through the synthetic and perforated palm, this glove uses a mesh back to really boost ventilation as you ride and weighs in at just 34 grams per pair so you won't notice them on your hands and at the height of summer will keep you cool. Additionally there is a pull tab in aiding the ease of taking these off quickly after a tiring day.

Q. What do a 19th century Italian tailor, a designer for the Milan Ballet and the first ever lycra cycling shorts have in common?
A. They are all part of a rich 140 year history that's led to today's most recognised brand in cycling: Castelli.
Throw in a heart attack on a famous Italian climb, family feuds, Olympic gold medals and controversy in the pro peloton and it begins to sound more like a Sicilian soap opera than the backdrop to a cycling brand. But then again Castelli is no ordinary brand.
Today, Castelli's scorpion emblem is arguably the single most recognised in cycling. Iconic is an overused word these days, but the Castelli brand surely qualifies.
We first discovered Castelli on our year long ride through the Americas in 2010, when our founder Liz (pictured) wore Castelli shorts and loved them, so stocking them seemed an obvious choice. But we're almost as captivated by the story behind the name as the kit itself! For the full Castelli story (it's quite a story!), click here.
