Leather Town Gloves
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.
