Leather gloves with upgraded palm protection

Classic cycling gloves with the added reassurance of brand new technology, which uses pressure mapping to protect the most vulnerable areas of the palm from the shocks of the road.

By mapping hands while gripping bars, we were able to ensure seams were kept away from pressure points to avoid pain and numbness when riding.

This information has allowed us to create gloves that are more comfortable and lighter-weight.

The gloves are made from a super-supple hide, tanned in Yeovil, Somerset. Perforated for maximum ventilation and treated to lengthen the life of the leather, these gloves will over time mould to the hands and become unique to the wearer.

Fastened with a velcro strap, with a metal Rapha logo badge to the wrist.

FEATURES

  • Soft Pittards leather, tanned in Somerset, England
  • Additional protection on pressure points to provide maximum comfort on the bike
  • Treated to prolong the life of the leather and protect it from salt and oils from the hands

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 Replacement even better than the original I bought the predecessor gloves ~6 years ago and Rapha kindly helped me replace them with these guys after I killed the old ones through overuse. These are somehow even more comfortable on the handlebars and can take a long ride with ease.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Hitman. So far, so sublime. Super soft skin tight leather which fits like a glove (see what I did there?) Padding is minimal if not at all but that hasn't compromised comfort for me, and perhaps in the hotter months to come, I'll reap the benefits of such lightweight construction? A reassuringly wide velcro strap strap secures the mitt, and although the metal logo is a nice touch on the strap, I'd have been happier with an embossed leather effect for further subtlety. Sizewise, bought a Medium as I did with the City (2016) and Fixed Glove (2006) and haven't experienced any discomfort or fit problems. Yes, they are expensive but on the strength of the above gloves, I feel it's a cost more than justified.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight fit, seam may hurt you palm Good looking glove, but fits tight compare to other rapha gloves, and the stiches inside may hurt your palm when riding. This happens to me on one pair but not the other one. White gets dirty very quickly and hard to clean.

Are these like the old GT gloves? Can I use them for normal rides - 60-100km? Description suggests for 'town gloves'?

Asked by: paparabbi
Hi, our new Leather Mitts are the evolution of our previous GT Gloves offering similarity in look and comfort.

Do the new gloves incorporate the snipers padding like the old gloves
