    Details

    Preserve your palms.

    Castelli has impressed us before with pieces inspired by the rigors of Roubaix. With its Arenberg Gel Gloves, the brand specifically brings to mind the hellish section of cobblestones in the Arenberg Forest, hoping to alleviate some of the pain experienced by riders during long rides on uneven roads with a dose of gel padding.

    The half-finger design preserves lever feel, and the combination of the AX Suede palm with a mesh upper results in a glove that provides dependable grip on the bars without trapping heat around your palms. Whether the famed cobblestones of Arenberg are on your riding calendar or you'll be tackling lesser-known, but equally demanding terrain, the gel lining on the palm can be counted on to absorb road vibrations and cushion your palms as you rack up the miles.

    Best rendering of a gel glove I've seen

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

    I liked these so much, I have several pairs. The gel is thin, thinner than many other gloves I've used, but at the same time it is extremely effective. These gloves fit without being bulky, they pad and reduce vibration without losing the feeling of the bars.

    Order your normal Castelli size.

    Highly recommend these.

    Avoid if it ever rains where you live

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    The most epic editions of the Paris-Roubaix feature rain, when the cobbles of the Arenburg forest are slick with mud. So it is with great surprise that these gloves, named for the legendary sector, became downright dangerous when it began to rain during my first outing with them. The gel pads, which are awesome and sticky when they are dry, became as slick as ice when they got wet. Nothing like descending in the rain and finding that your gloves can no longer grip the handlebars! I could only maintain grip on my bars by squeezing very tight, and I removed them immediately when I got to the bottom. If you live in a desert climate or don't ever ride in the rain, these gloves are awesomely comfortable and fit very well. Otherwise, they are dangerous and you should not buy them. I bought them today and will return them tomorrow.
