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
  • Perforations to the back of hands allow the air to circulate
  • Metal Rapha logo badge
  • Velcro fastening for easy fitting over a variety of sleeves
  • Turn them inside-out to take them off

  • Leather

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Hand wash with mild soap
  • Do not bleach

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 Like a second skin! This is a glove that will fit large hands and being crafted from leather has a little stretch to help along the way. It has a very wide opening on the back which can be adjusted by the Velcro tabbed strap. A light weight pro riders glove purchased at the same time had to be sent back because it did not have this feature and was somewhat smaller in comparison. I have switched from gel padded gloves to leather as my current gloves had pads in the wrong spot and proved uncomfortable particularly when on the drops. It was very hard to find a comfortable position but with the leather gloves it was easy to find a number of grip positions and made for comfortable long rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mitts This is a great, well-crafted pair of mitts, which I hope will last me a very long time. So far, they've been very hard wearing and are very comfortable. My only niggle is I'd like a bit more padding or thicker leather on the heel and just below the finger holes -- essentially on the key contact points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and feel I have used the GT leather gloves since they were first released and my pair last week, after eight odd years constant use, had to be replaced. I got the blue leather mits which don't match any of m cycling clothing (according to my wife) so I had to purchase a black pair as well. They are very comfortable and so far very pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They are so beautiful I'm afraid to wear them. I'm a sucker for white cycling gloves. Yes, I know the color never lasts, but the look is so clean I can't resist them. It was the photo of the Rapha logo on the crisp white closure that sold me. When they arrived, I was delighted to see that they are as good looking in person as the pictures. I'm not a regular glove wearer. I use them for longer rides like centuries. I've worn them once to test the fit. It was perfect. There was a slight yellow on the palm after the ride - maybe from my handlebars. So I haven't worn them since. I'm waiting for that special occasion.

Hi How do these mitts come up size wise?? Having measured as per the size chart I am 19cm, what size would you recommend, does the leather give?? Thanks

Asked by: GazB
The leather does give with repeated wear. You could try the XS and if this does not meet your suitability then you can return these to us under our 90 day returns policy.

Sizing question Do these gloves give as they are leather? As i measured at 21cm and unsure which size to go for small or medium. Thanks

Asked by: GazB
Leather gloves will give over time so the small should be an appropriate fit. If the garment does not meet with your suitability then you can return this under the 90 day returns policy.

Do these gloves have the same, more or less padding than the classic crochet gloves?

Asked by: mt63
The leather gloves have a contact point over the inside palm, similar to the Pro Team Gloves, whereas the Classic Crotchet Gloves contain a memory foam over the palm.

These are badged as city gloves with minimal padding but also an evolution of GT gloves which were for long distances and padded. It's confusing. Which are the best gloves for long distance riding now you dont make GT gloves?

Asked by: Stormgod
The Classic Mitts or the Brevet Mitts are the two gloves that can be used for Long distance riding.

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

Asked by: Stormgod
Hi, these gloves do not have the same padding on the palms as the previous leather gloves which are the GT Gloves.

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.
