The Rapha GT Gloves are made from African Hair Sheep leather. The finest available, the result is the most durable, comfortable and stylish cycling mitts in the world.


GT Gloves

Rapha’s GT Gloves are the ultimate glove for the serious road cyclist. Made from super soft and breathable African Hair Sheep leather, they offer the confidence and feel of cycling bare-handed but with the highest levels of protection and comfort.

The leather is cut by skilled craftsmen, worked by hand for its characteristic texture and suppleness. The gloves are breathable and the natural fibre wicks sweat extremely effectively.

The gloves have road-specific padding with extra padding around the thumb and forefinger for those long hours spent riding on the hoods. Slim and unobtrusive, this high-density foam offers excellent shock absorption and control. Rapha’s GT Gloves are double stitched at key wear points for reinforcement and are fastened at the cuff with a velcro strap.

Leather gloves look and feel beautiful and get better with age. Buy them slightly tight and they will stretch to the shape of your hands for a perfect fit.

Please note: acid from sweat eats away at leather over time, so it’s important to wash the gloves, particularly if you’ve sweated them through on a ride and you notice the gloves losing moisture and malleability. Once washed and dried, glove balm should be applied to keep them supple.


"…and you have what arguably is the ultimate cycling glove. Certainly these say PRO even if our legs and bike handling do not. Rapha doesn’t stipulate any bar tape restrictions but these should come with a box of white tape and a white-tape-or-else warranty."

"I was in Normandy when one of the guys I used to race with in Belgium came up to me and said: ‘Cool gloves, man… like Merckx!’ You kinda catch people looking sideways or doing a double take when they see them, I guess because they’re so unlike any other gloves around. Very comfortable, they actually get better with use."

Sizing Guide

2. HAND LENGTH: measure from your finger tip to the base of your wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice look! After a couple of rides the gloves get used to the size and form of my hands. Before that they were a bit stiff. As they probably should be hence the fine leather fabric. Really good looking stylish gloves. Very nice to wear. A bit tight when taking them off. You have to turn them inside out but that's obviously due to the close fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These gloves have no equal! I purchased a pair of these gloves about three years ago and they lasted about two years after a crash (my hands had zero road rash). Had to buy a new pair as they died due to hard wearing after the crash. Beautiful styling, timeless look and comfort. You will never want to ride w/o them again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nicest gloves I own Bought a white pair earlier in the summer, as a splurge. The quality is superb, the leather is incredibly soft, yet durable. Personally, I dont like gloves with padding, but the padding on these is simply superb. Liked these so much, I bought a second pair in black. Gave it 4 stars because gloves have no sweat wipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top quality If you like the retro look and can live without a "wipe your face" function, these gloves are as good as it gets. They feel great if you notice them at all!
