Cool, cushioned comfort.

Castelli constructed the Women's Elite Gel Glove's palms from perforated Clarino with gel insert padding. This combination breathes extremely well and provides just the right amount of cushioning for choppy roads. The result is a palm material that allows you to adequately feel the road through the bars, while keeping your hands cool and dry. Silicone printed logos across the palm inserts provide texture for added grip, and microsuede panels along the backs of the thumbs allow you to comfortably remove sweat from your face.

The back panels utilize lightweight printed Lycra with open mesh inserts, which keeps your hand dry and comfortable by forcing air to flow through the glove. The hook-and-loop wrist tab allows you to snug up the glove for a perfect fit.

The Castelli Women's Elite Gel Gloves are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors White/pink fluo/ocean, Aqua/black/silver, Cyclamen/white/pink fluo, ans Black/white/silver.

Castelli Gloves

  • Fit: True to size

I love Castelli and have wanted these gloves for a while- great fit,comfort, and cool. Best gloves I have ever owned!!! Only wear these gloves now!

Great gloves for riding

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My wife loves how comfortable these gloves are during her rides. Her hands don't get fatigued and the cushion helps with any vibration that takes place during her ride.

Very Comfortable Gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I'm a guy who wanted the Castelli Men's Pro Glove, but couldn't find it anywhere online, so I bought the Elite Gel Women's Glove. This glove has just the right amount of covered gel padding for touring. Unlike other gloves with bulbous pieces of gel protruding from the palms, these have flat, grippy gel pads spaced over the palm. The firm, non-slip grip allows a rider to relax his or her hands with little effort expended to maintain control of the handlebars. I've put about 500 miles on the gloves during the past month and washed the gloves which are holding up well. My hands are 8" in circumference, making me a men's size "L" so I bought the XL in the women's glove and they fit very nicely. Great gloves.

Not the best gloves I've ever owned

The "black" fabric faded after first use, and revealed an ugly blue-ish color. Wash separately, otherwise you are risking to stain other clothes. The gel padding is ok, but I do not recommend these gloves for longer rides. Overall, I expected better quality from Castelli...

Castelli Elite Gel Glove Bike Women's

    I am very picky when it comes to gloves. The size, the quality, heck everything matters when you're biking long distance. This glove is great considering I tear through them about 3 per season. There is a hook and loop strap around the wrist and a pull tab in by the middle finger (looks like a web) to get these off after a long ride. The gel seems good (out of the box), we will see how long it lasts. I traditionally wear a size 6 in gloves and the small fit me great. These were a tad loose compared to my last pair. but I wouldn't want to go a size smaller for fear of swelling.

    Hey Liz,

    So how have they held up for you so far???

    Hey Debbie-

    These have held up pretty good for the past 6 months but I haven't gotten into full bike season yet. (that will be the true test) The gel is really cushy & the size was spot on. Size Small worked for my size 6 hands. Lets put it this way, I liked them so much more than my last pair of gloves that I bought my mom a pair of these. :)
