Sleet ready

This glove was made for conditions like those seen at Sanremo the past two years: mixed rain and snow, and riders with numb hands. Castelli have used OutDry® technology to create a totally waterproof barrier but without the water absorbtion of the older glove-liner construction. The membrane is vacuum bonded directly to the outer fabric to create a wind- and waterproof barrier. It is lined with Dry Zone to move moisture away from your hand.

Key Features:

4-way stretch water-resistant Nylon 66/Elastane 95/5% DWR

Absolutely waterproof OutDry® technologymembrane

Dry Zone lining manages moisture with 1-way moisture movement

Neoprene cuff for easy on/off and secure fit

Microsuede thumb panel

Reflective detailing

Weight: 108g (Large)

Temperature Range: 5°-11°C / 41°-52°F

Who's Behind It?

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!
