With three layers the Castelli Tempo Women's Glove is designed for cold weather riding. The outer shell layer is Gore Windstopper a breathable windproof and water resistant barrier to keep cool air out. The inside of these gloves feature a snug warm fleece for a warm soft luxury feel and in between these two layers is low bulk Dexfil synthetic performance insulation, for added warmth. Given the insulation the low volume and dexterity of the glove is amazing.
The Tempo also features touchscreen inserts so you wont need to remove them to take a selfie and the reflective detail add a little to your nighttime visibility.

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.

Small and tightReview by Lisa
I used the size guide for these and could not even get them over my hand. A friend of mine with smaller hands than mine tried them on and could get them on but said they felt to constricting on the fingers to confortably grip the handlebar. That was despite the fingers being a little too long so baggy at the ends.
Even if I went up a size these still wouldn’t fit my hands so unless you have long and very slender hands I would try a different style.
VeloVixen Says: thanks for your comments, Lisa - it's a fair point, they are designed to be relatively snug around the fingers and should feel longer at the end than non-cycling gloves so as to avoid the tips of your fingers being constricted when they're holding the bars, but obviously shouldn't constrict around the finger. If in doubt, it's worth sizing up.
