If you've been turned off by gloves in the past that feel too bulky, or just plain too noticeable when you're riding, don't give up on the added grip and cushioning they can provide just yet. Give the Castelli Tempo Glove a try the next time you head out for a ride on a hot day, and be prepared to forget you have it on after a few miles.

Made with ultralight synthetic fabric for maximum breathability in warm weather, the Tempo comes with light, flexible palm padding to mute road noise without impeding bar feel. Its low-profile silhouette aims to subtly improve your dexterity in the cockpit while all but disappearing as you ride.

Great Gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It looks like all Castelli products are made to fit children. I had to exchange XL for XXL to get a good fit. Otherwise, no complaints. Gloves are comfortable for long rides, snug fit, very low profile with excellent shock absorption for size/density.

Great glove

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

Low profile, unobtrusive, good padding placement, breatheable. The wrists don't sit too high up, so there's no bothersome binding. Does what it's supposed to--well. Like many things Castelli, there is direct relationship between refined, well thought-out engineering and the amount of care with which you have to treat these. In other words, the gloves are somewhat delicate. You can't just rip them off, inside out, after a ride. The seams might rip. Wash according to instructions. With proper care, I expect that they will last a long time.
