Covers both ends of winter perfectly

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Whereas Castelli Estremo and Assos Ultraz gloves are great for the 20's and 30's of the coldest mid-winter months, the Scalda Pros are perfect for warmer 40+ weather when those are too warm and get sweaty on uphills. Castelli rates them for 45-59F. I first wore them on a day starting out in the low 40's: no problem thanks to their Windstopper layer, for me they would probably work down to 40F. Yet their light fleece lining keeps them from getting too hot at 55F or more. So for me at least they neatly fill the gap between full-on winter gloves and short-finger summer gloves.

The slanted cuffs seem strange at first but work OK. They make it easier to put the gloves on, but sometimes gaps develop between the short side of the cuff and the end of one's sleeve. Not a serious problem because one isn't using them when the air is really cold.

I usually get size L gloves but XL in these fit me perfectly.

Good Gloves but not Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

These were not quite as warm as I had hoped, but I did like the palm grip area a lot. We'll see how they hold up. I ordered a Large because my hand measure was 8.5" and I always wear large in gloves. These are a little tight but not too tight. I would love to compare to an XL and I might have gone with an XL.

put it to the test

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I've got a Castelli glove now for about every temperature. I just happen to really like their gloves. The scalda was no exception, it's a great glove, they do run on the small side so keep in mind when ordering. I can wear them down to low 40's, I know everyone it different but that should get you a good idea. comfortable on and dexterity is good for a glove that warm. I've just used them on a few rides now but been very pleased with them. definitely recommended.
