A little numbness never hurt.

When you're on the bike, cold separates itself into several stages. Sunny fall days leave you only slightly chilled, with hands that are a little stiffer than normal but still functional. Other days, an afternoon spent pedaling through wind and rain leave your appendages completely numb, incapable of performing the simplest tasks—like taking your gloves off in the driveway when you get home. Castelli, as it's wont to do, saw a gap in the market and filled that gap with the BOA Men's Glove.

Rather than trying to create an ultra-insulated, impractical glove, it set about designing a glove that would embrace the limited mobility that's unavoidable during long, frigid rides. The resulting Men's BOA Glove relies on the same BOA dial that's served you so loyally on your road shoes. It allows you to quickly widen the glove to pull it off mid-ride, then slip it back on without fumbling in the shoulder of the road for an extra five minutes.

Aside from its easy on/off system, the BOA Glove comes with a capable OutDry shell that's impervious to rain and wind. The shell protects a plush fleece lining that works to hold heat next to your skin while allowing your hands to breathe. Silicone grip on the palm preserves bar feel and control of the cockpit, and the cuffs extend past the wrists to help eliminate gaps between the glove and your jersey.

  • Set out on your harshest, coldest rides with the BOA Glove
  • BOA dial makes on/off with cold hands far simpler
  • Outdry shell completely seals out rain and wind
  • Breathable fleece lining holds heat close to your hands
  • Extended cuff eliminates the usual glove/jacket gap

So So

I've used these for riding in 40 Degree weather and so far they are so so. The BOA piece works great. It clamps around my jacket sleeve and I never have to worry about it coming undone or the sleeve slipping out like on other gloves.
They are too small. They are ok in the fingers but the thumb is a little too short and it is a bit uncomfortable. Maybe it will stretch out. A larger size would probably be okay.
But the biggest problem is the lack of padding in the palm area. Every other pair of gloves I own have some degree of padding. These are just a layer of leather. Very uncomfortable on long rides.
I'll give them another try but right now it's looking like another entry in the box of stuff you use a few time then write them off.

I love unpadded gloves! IMHO, palm padding should not be necessary if bike fit is appropriate.

Sized way small

I ride predominately in the North East. Temperatures swing 25+F in a day. Rain, snow, and every combination in between. I hate trainers so will go outside below freezing and rain. When the water bottle freezes I'll hit the trainer. This glove is not for that temp. However, I like a glove that is snug with a thin wool liner & will work into the mid 30s. I'll update after using this winter- but the quality and feel seem dead on. This looks like an all weather glove down to 35F- and will probably work into low 50F w/no liner. If it proves to be rain proof then it's a winner. I like the ratchet tightening as it's amazing to me that gloves that go over a jacket mean rain will run down the sleeve and into the glove. Hoping for the best!! I wear a Large with no liner and with fingerless - but all My winter gloves are XL. This was very short as an XL so hoping XXL will do The trick.
Update: XXL fits perfect. The Bomber glove. Used into mid 20s with liner. Warm all day in freezing rain. Used MTB too. Love the fit and the quick removal system kicks ass. I’m always screwing around with phone, HR monitor or gate and being able to quickly remove one glove & quickly put it back on is huge - this is new standard and go to glove 45 & below.

Really good stuff

True winter gloves. Protect well against cold. Quite thick but still comfortable enough to hold bars or to shift gears. I haven't used them in the rain though - I prefer smaller fit.

The ALMOST perfect winter glove.

I ride no matter what the weather and my hands suffer a lot. I tried a few different gloves and this one was a well researched buy.

The first thing I noticed is how incredibly warm they are. Too warm? Loosen the BOA. Too cold? Tighten the BOA. Rain has no effect either.
The tight fit hasn't affected my bike handling negatively like some other winter gloves do.

The only downside is that you can't use a touchscreen with them. Which is annoying if you like taking pictures, texting or need to take a call. However, you can easily take them off and put them back on again by quickly releasing the BOA.

Boa! Very nice!

Have been looking for a Waterproof Glove. I hate it when I ride, then it rains and I can squeeze water out of my gloves like a sponge, just by over-gripping the bars! These were the best rated and they are truly PRO! Love them - may try a skinny insulating glove on cold days...

So far, so good, so warm!

    Mid-20 degree weather is a pretty good test of just about any glove. Weather it's on a bike, skiing, snowblowing....yeah, that's right, I've given these gloves a proper working over. I'll give them a solid A- on all fronts. The wind resistance is 2nd to none and the amount of insulation is just right to avoid feeling bulky. The Boa closure really does allow easier exit/entry which is much more appreciated than I had planned. My *only* complaint is that the Boa knob is ....well... large and a little predominant. Funny enough, it both gets in the way of a ski pole strap and also keeps it from falling off the hand when grip is released. A truly mixed blessing.
    If you get too cold in these gloves, you should probably go inside or stop being a bike nerd and put your ski gloves on.

    Fit is IT

    I have been on a quest for the perfect winter cycling gloves, and the Castelli Boa may be the best I have tried. Other waterproof/breathable gloves can be very difficult to put back on after taking them off, since the opening is small and the lining is separate from the waterproof/breathable membrane (looking at you, Gore-tex and Hipora) Castelli addresses this by using the excellent OutDry membrane, which is bonded to the shell an lining and feels like a single layer of material, and with the Boa closure. The wrist of these gloves opens wide, and then cinches down for a very trim fit.
    I have worn them on a couple of rides now, both road and trail, in temperatures down to the low 30s. I have honestly not thought much about the comfort of my hands while I have been riding. They feel neither too warm or too cold. When it comes time to take off the gloves to take a photo or eat a snack, the ordeal I'€™ve experienced with other gloves is a distant memory.
    I usually wear gloves in either large or XL, and I got these in XL, as I don't want winter gloves that are too tight. Thumb and middle fingers are perfect, other fingers are a tad long, but the function of the glove is unaffected. I expect I could fit a thin liner underneath for sub-freezing temps.
    Castelli has a thin laser-cut cuff on most of their jackets, which slides under the long gauntlet of the Boa glove exceptionally well. Wrist gap is a thing of the past!

    Fit is IT

    Amazing feel but could be warmer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    While riding in the cold, I came to the conclusion that it was impossible for me to fish a gel out of my pocket with gloves on. When I read that these were designed to take off/on quickly it appealed to me so I ordered them. The addition of the boa lets Castelli make the cuffs longer which makes them warmer. Yes they are easy to take off and put on. The gloves are relatively warm. I'd say they are fine down to about freezing. What I didn't expect is that they have an amazing feel. I have more feeling of the handlebar and shifters than I do in my warmer weather gloves. They reduce the wind but didn't seem windproof. I found the overall fit true to size. My only size complaint is that the thumbs seemed a little short.

    Update: Tried using them for rides in the 20s. My fingers were frozen after 30-40 min. Warmer core might have helped.
