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 A solid simple glove In the bin where I keep all my bike stuff, I have a large ziplock bag full of gloves—ˆ kept trying different ones until I found these. I like that the padding is thin and dense and covers the whole palm, instead of regions, and appreciate the absence of a velcro closure, which I find myself constantly adjusting, and the velcro loses adhesion over time. They aren't overly fancy or retro or anything, just good classic mitts, as named. I had a black pair, but lost one to my dismay, and when I went to reorder, it appeared that Rapha is phasing them out. So I was only able to buy white in my size, M, but bought two pairs to stock up in case these are gone forever. The white are very "pro", but for me not as nice as the black. They get dirty easily, and you can see through to the extra layer of cloth where the knuckle vents are sewn in—kind of like seeing underwear through pants. Could use a little tab or loops to help you take them off, otherwise perfect. Rapha, don't kill these gloves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They get better Got these at a good price in the sale but the first time I wore them I thought they would cut my thumbs off at the root. I have persevered though and I now love them, they really do make a difference soaking up road buzz and on a long ride they are invaluable. Those first few rides were painful though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy Great pair of gloves. I have had so many gloves over the years with Velcro attachments that all lose the grip. These are a little harder to get on and off compared to gloves with Velcro but you soon get used to it. The leather palm is super comfy and hasn't deformed at all since I have used them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great option and price Fit better once I started to use compared to pulling from bag. Padding is good and seem to stay clean. Maybe a little stiff toward top of fingers near thumb. Classic look for sure.

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.

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.
