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.

Reviews:

"…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."
Velodramatic

"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."
Kristian House, British National Road Race Champion 2009

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection These are just really, really good. So much better than every pair of gloves I have evner had before. might even get a second pair - and that is remarkable considering the rather stiff price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gloves yet I bought these some months ago, been using them since. They feel good riding, giving comfort and still let´s me "feel" the bicycle. I expected the leather to stretch a bit more then what it have so far, though I used several times/hours they are a bit on the small side. Bought them slightly tight according to recommendation and size chart. I got size M, which is what I usually buy in mitts. Still a bit small, however maybe they stretch some more, will see. despite that, I would say these are the best gloves I have owned yet.

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 5 out of 5 by from Quality and Durability. I spent a year looking at these gloves wondering if they were worth the price, which is more than some of my Rapha jerseys. I was having difficulty with my then current brand causing some problems for me on long rides, I had used my Rapha Pro Team mitts on two prior Cent Cols Challenges without issues and wanted a nicer pair so I made the plunge for the GT Gloves. I will never, never wear a different glove now. Great fit, easy to care for and after washing and they dry when I put them back open they feel like new. I have been wearing mine for three months now with out any visible signs of wear and I ride about 400 miles per week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing The gloves were amazingly soft, unfortunately they ran very small. I normally were a medium and was at the low end of the sizing range for the large. I put them on before my ride and they were cutting the circulation off my figures. I carefully took them off and they ripped at the seams. Rapha was great with the return, but they were a disappointment they were so fragile.
