Leather Town Gloves

Handmade in the UK, these classically styled all-weather cycling gloves are cut from the finest African hair sheep leather. African hair sheep live on the arid savannah of Eastern Africa, to cope with the heat and dry conditions, the hair sheep have extremely thin but strong skin. Therefore the gloves are highly durable and the leather will improve with age, becoming even more comfortable as they shape to your hands.

The gloves include numerous technical features, including Rapha's signature military-grade padding in the palms for improved shock absorption and better control on the bike. The inside of the glove has a lining which is excellent at wicking moisture to keep your hands dry and warm and is also odour resistant. A single strap with a popper keeps the gloves snug at the wrist.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can I compare wearing gloves to drinking bourbon? These are smooth and wonderful. Wearing them is a luxury. One or more reviewer commented on the slim fit, which was the case until they formed to my hands. Now they fit like, well, a glove, and it is the most luxurious feel on my hands. Use models: shifting through the gears on a leather-wrapped manual gearshift OR rapid firing a Dura-Ace brifter. Probably not for training as much as for that Rapha-brand of fashionable urban cycling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for colder weather This is my second pair of city gloves - I liked them so much in brown I bought another pair in black. These mostly get used for city cycling rather than out on the road - in warmer weather or when pushing hard they don't breathe particularly well, but for cooler weather they're fine. For very cold weather you may want to use silk liners - they're a close fit so anything thicker probably won't fit. The minimal padding adds unobtrusive comfort, and they look very smart for meetings and the like. My older pair have softened up and moulded to my hands beautifully; I look forward to doing the same with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality leather gloves Quality leather and well constructed. Sizing is on the cosy side of accurate, will soften with use though. Only niggle is the padding inseam between thumb and forefinger, it has a slight pressure point due to the extra bulk, hoping this with also give a little over time. Overall a fine balance performance and looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gloves. Very well made. I bought these gloves and used them all winter. They are great gloves for cool weather. 30 degrees F and up, but not for extremely cold weather. They are very well made, the craftsmanship is excellent. Brilliant product.

How do I clean these gloves?

Asked by: Pomalift
Hi, we recommend a luke warm water solution and our Rapha soap. Treat the gloves with glove balm after washing and drying. Please refer to the 'care instructions' on the page.
