    A warm hand means a happy rider.

    Cyclocross season is here. Mechanics in the pits get busy, but between laps, their hands get chilly — just like you out on the course. That's why both mechanics and riders alike will benefit from the toasty hands that are provided by the Castelli Prima Gloves.

    Castelli's Prima gloves were knit with the lightweight Coolmax yarn. Essentially, this material keeps your hands warm, while also wicking away moisture caused by sweaty palms. Additionally, the gloves feature silicone grip across the entire palm and fingers, increasing dexterity as you work your grip in the cold.

    The grip pattern is the reason that the gloves have become a favorite for cyclocross riders and mechanics alike. Being able to pick up and maneuver your bike by the bars or the top tube, and not have it slip in your hands, is paramount to cyclocross success. These gloves accomplish just that.

    Finished with a long knit cuff, the gloves slip easily under your jacket without adding bulk. The Castelli scorpion logo on the back sets them apart from wannabes and conductive thumb and forefinger pads make smart phone operation a simplified affair. Well, they actually make it possible.

    The Castelli Prima Gloves are available in the colors Black, Red, and Yellow Fluo and in the sizes Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large.

    Do not buy!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 2XL

    Heed what other people have posted. Fingers are too short and very tight! I have xl glove size hands, but not big hams. The glove fingers are narrow and tight. CC says guaranteed returns. What they don't say is you pay for the return. In this case, $6.99 for a $15 pair of gloves whose fit is totally missed represented. I ordered size 2XL and not even close..

    Great for Cool riding

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

    These protect my hands from the wind and still breath well. Wear them in 50 degree temperatures. Fit is comfortable and true to size. I like that they are longer and come up high on the wrist.

    Knit luxury.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XXL

    The gloves are well made and represent a luxury take on the basic knit staple. The logo is fully embroidered and the cuff is nice and long.

    Note that these run small, which is standard for Castelli stuff. I wear an XL in the DeFeet equivalent and got the XXL here. They were still too short in the digits, but they do fit my partner well, so I gave them to her. Don't be shy about sizing up.

    Great lightweight glove

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

    A perfect glove for fall or spring. Love the neon color for after work rides and that you don't have to remove them to use your phone.

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: L/XL

    When these gloves first arrived I tried them on and was less than impressed and actually thought about returning them because the fit didn't seem to be quite what I was hoping for. Fingers were a little more snug and the cuff was a little longer than I wanted. I decided to wear them on a ride the next day to be sure and as it turned out they were great. Low 40's on the road bike and mid 30's on the fat bike (with Moose Mitts) and these gloves are warm and comfy, exactly what I was hoping for.

    Toddler fingers?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love me some Castelli but these fell short. The weight/fabric is really nice, warm when you need it without loosing any dexterity. The grippers on the palm hold up excellent in wet, muddy, CX conditions. I really like the longer cuff, something often overlooked on a lot of gloves. The touchscreen thumb/pointer work well also. However, for me there is one major flaw in these gloves. The actual gloves finger length. I could use at least an extra 1"-2" in the fingers. Oddly this is the only pair of Castelli gloves that I've ever had this problem with. I got them in "L" and even tried an "XL" I found while recently on a trip. In my opinion it seemed like there was only extra material in the palm, with the same problem again in finger length.

    There is great potential for this glove, unfortunately it just doesn't work out for me. It is worth noting that according to the Castelli size chart I'm supposed to be on the small side of a "M" no.

    At the end of the day these just fall short for me, literally.
