Of all the clothing decisions to be made when heading out for a winter ride, gloves can be one of the most perplexing. You want something to block the wind and cold, with enough insulation to stay warm without crossing over into sweaty, clammy, and then cold territory when the intensity ticks up. The Castelli Gara Midweight Gloves solve this dilemma with just the right mix of insulation, breathability, and style for all your cold weather bike adventures. Fashioned from WindStopper fabrics, these gloves are built to fend off the elements with ease. Silicone grippers on the fingertips and thumbs ensure they won't slip off the bars or brake levers even on rainy, icy days. Long wrist cuffs tuck neatly under your jacket cuffs, with a shorter cuff that sits over your jacket edge to effectively seal out chilly wind gusts and errant flurries, ensuring toasty wrists and digits throughout the ride. The Gara Midweight Gloves feature minimal padding on the palms to enhance bar feel, while microsuede panels on the thumbs let you quickly mop away sweat and snowflakes on the fly. As a final touch, Castelli adds reflective print to increase visibility to motorists, fellow riders, and wandering neighborhood pets in low light or dreary conditions.
