The Corridore Glove is Castelli's love letter to cycling. It's based on the classic, indispensable knit glove model but features a few innovations that set it apart in a well-populated field. This balance is typical of Castelli, a manufacturer that juggles the demands of innovation with the pleasure of timeless forms to produce traditionally minded gear that still tickles our tech-geek fancy.
The gloves' synthetic construction insulates like wool but doesn't risk losing its shape after stretching out. The classic design is further updated with generously applied silicone palm grip and touchscreen-compatible fingertips, and the extended cuff helps eliminate glove/sleeve gaps—even for those of us with limbs that tend to outstretch most Italian race gear. We find that Castelli's recommended temperature range of 54-65 degrees Fahrenheit runs a bit on the warm side, but the Corridore is the first cool-weather accessory we reach for every fall when temperatures dip below 60.

- Q & A
ET Thumb and doesn't work on Smart Phone
- Size Bought: XXL
- Height: 5'9"
- Weight: 175lbs
These gloves are warm, which is the only good thing I can say about them. The sizing is odd, as the thumb is disproportionately longer, like ET long, than the other fingers. And, they do not work on smart screens...
Glove is great but touchscreen fails
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: L/XL
Would give these gloves 5 stars. They are well constructed and keep my hands quite warm.
Only problem is that the advertised touchscreen compatibility doesn't seem to exist. Couldn't get my screen to react to touch from this glove at all.
Guess I won't be grammin' on those cold rides.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: large
- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 170lbs
I love the classic knit glove look and feel. These are great for that and really warm down to mid 30's. Understated look.
Only downside is fingers are a bit long and you can potentially size down since the knit stretches so well.
