The finest cycling gloves as worn by the best riders in the world

Cut from highly breathable African hair sheep leather, the Team Sky GT Gloves provide the highest levels of protection and comfort but are light and soft enough to feel as if you are riding with bare hands. The leather is cut by skilled craftsmen, then worked by hand to create the leather’s characteristic texture and suppleness. The gloves are breathable and the natural fibre wicks sweat extremely effectively.

The gloves use high-density padding on the palms, with extra padding around the thumb and forefinger for additional protection in vital areas. Slim and unobtrusive, it offers the perfect balance between shock absorption and control. The Team Sky GT Gloves are double stitched at key wear points and have a velcro cuff strap featuring a debossed Sky logo. 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.
