Gloves sizing

Knuckles: measure around the widest part of your dominant hand, between thumb and index finger. Please note if purchasing with Overmitts and/or Winter Gloves match sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant gloves These gloves not only look great (aesthetics and material quality), they perform fantastic! The fit seems to be spot on in line with the size guide and very comfortable - I personally do not like lots of padding in cycling gloves and these are just right. My first outing was a local 20 miler on smooth roads - very impressed. The second outing was on the 2017 Paris-Roubaix Sportive!!! No double bar tape for me, these gloves worked really well, no blisters, rubs etc! I would definitely recommend the Classic Mitts to any cyclist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passed Roubaix road text with full marks Bought at the last minute for Paris-Roubaix sportive and performed absolutely faultlessly over the pavé. The best gloves I have ever purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pavé protection I got these with Paris Roubaix coming up and knowing that I'd need some decent cushioning for the pavé - they worked a charm. A good fit, the cushioning is substantial without being ridiculous and the addition of a glasses wipe was very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them Really love these gloves I had a white pair last year and they are the best mitts I've ever had and there still in great condition I've got a black pair now as I got some new black shoes , I would say though that if your like me and like everything a tight fit so I've got a small instead of the medium which there hand size Guide recommended,after a few uses they do give a bit and are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful gloves, amazing quality These gloves are beautifully made, and I love the attention to detail. Superior material and fabric used. The padding is just right, very comfortable. I haven't washed these yet and do feel nervous about washing the leather but that's what the guide says. The white colour makes me feel very pro!

Hi, I measure small for knuckles and large for hand length (slender lady hands) what size is best for me? 

Asked by: Rutherford
Hi, this is difficult due to the difference in your hand measurements but we recommend you try a medium. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Classic mitts can be machine washed? Never heard of machine washing leather. How is that possible? Doesn't that dry out the leather? What other leather care tips do you have to keep the mitts soft and supple. Thanks.

Asked by: jeffbeckfan
Hi, these mitts can be machine washed. It is important not to wring them out afterwards and or dry them in direct sunlight. We do sell a Leather Glove Balm which can be applied to the pad to keep this supple.

compared to GTs, is the padding in classic mitts as dense and cover the same hand area?

Asked by: jeffbeckfan
Hi, the exact distribution of the padding is slightly different on the gloves due to different materials. However, the padding is as dense and covers the same hand area on the Classic Mitts.
