Product description

Castelli's Rosso Corsa Classic Gloves have a reputation. For years, they've soaked up the cobbles of France and Belgium for Team Garmin-Barracuda, but to us, this speaks less to their quality than their Rosso Corsa designation from Castelli.

Rosso Corsa simply translates 'Racing Red.' However, there's much more to it than than that. Rosso Corsa was the traditional Red of international motor racing -- seen until the late 1960s as the color that all Italian race cars were painted for international races. Racing Red was definitely cooler than the white with two lengthwise stripes that the American cars had. Rosso Corsa is reserved by Castelli to delineate the best of its best, and the pieces that're part of this lineage represent where Castelli has sweated every detail to achieve what it believes to be a categorical breakthrough.

As Castelli glove designs traditionally present smooth lines to the wind, this glove has no strap or adjustable closure system. Instead, the glove is simply a pull-on. The Clarino synthetic leather palm has been given a generous gel padding, with sections of density ranging up to 5mm. Additionally, the gel padding incorporates a porous composition that minimizes palm sweat within the glove. At the outside of the palm, Castelli has placed silicone print that won't slip, even when the bars are covered with a sheen of rain and a patina of Belgian mud. And to further ensure grip, the gel padding is reticulated in order to ensure a full range of malleability.

For the sensation of cooling ventilation, the back of hand has been constructed from a highly breathable mesh. This way, you maintain the vibration absorbency found in the palm without drowning your hands in sweat. But, when sweat emanates from other parts of the body, like the head, use the newly added, microsuede thumb wipe to soak it up. And speaking of new features, this year's Rosso Corsa has done away with the embroidery of the past in favor of smoother finish that's free from abrasion.

The Castelli Rosso Corsa Classic Gloves are available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Red/black, and White/grey.
