Developed for Team Sky’s Classics specialists

If the thought of freezing wet hands on a long day in the rain is enough to put you off getting out the door, consider the Pro Team Neoprene Gloves, Rapha’s latest innovation in hand protection.

Racers know that trying to keep hands dry when riding in the rain is a losing battle – even the bulkiest gloves only stay dry for a couple of hours, and the extra layers of insulation and water-proofing can compromise handling skills and make it nearly impossible to eat. The Pro Team Neoprene Gloves solve this problem.

Inspired by wetsuits, the neoprene and merino construct traps a small amount of water close to the skin while blocking out the cold and wind. This makes for a thin, comfortable glove with great dexterity and warmth, perfect for racing – they are used by Team Sky during the Belgian Classics – and training in the rain.

Neoprene used against the skin tends to lead to an uncomfortable and clammy feeling, so these gloves are lined with fine merino wool. Merino can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet to the touch – synthetic fabrics typically feel wet after absorbing only 2-3% of their weight – meaning that the lining feels dry for longer. As well as adding comfort, the lining is naturally anti-bacterial.

The palms of the gloves are cut from 2mm-thick neoprene, allowing for better control of the bars and shifters, with a 3mm-thick back panel for extra protection against the wind and cold weather. To prevent water ingress, the seams are constructed with a ‘blind stitch’ that doesn’t fully penetrate the material, and are then filled with insoluble glue.

Due to their low-profile compared to other foul-weather gloves, the Pro Team Neoprene Gloves can easily be stored in a jersey pocket, making them a great just-in-case option on changeable days.

Key features:

  • Anti-bacterial merino lining
  • 2mm palm for dexterity
  • 3mm back panel for protection
  • Printed silicone grip

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfy Have only worn these a couple of times but not yet in the rain. On cold days they keep the fingers warm. I found on longer rides if I took them off for a break they were just a bit fiddly to put back on due to the sweat, otherwise they are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well thought out, very warm and light weight. Love the thin wool lining inside the neoprene. Kept me warm and absorbed any sweat on my hands. Noticed when I took them off for a break and put them back on. The only way these coudl be batter is if there was an outer protective layer for my palms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from warm in the wet, but not for freezing days the neoprene keeps you warm and wet, but it's not for frosty days. turn it inside out and dry them, or you'll get stink-hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome rain gloves It feels great. I thot maybe gloves cutting can be bigger. Cause I'm Asian and I'm wearing the biggest size of the gloves and yet I feel it's alittle tight. Great water resistant material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent rain glove I have only given these gloves one good test, since I got them near the end of rainy colder spring weather, but was impressed. As noted, they will let some water in eventually, which is unavoidable anyway and not a negative. The merino lining is an improvement over gloves without it. They can get warm, but I noticed my hands were mostly sweaty at the wrist rather than the fingers. I expected them to be too warm (a rainy ride in the high 40s / low 50s Fahrenheit) but they were comfortable. I would say that they are not quite windproof, which is good given that these are not winter gloves for freezing temps. They are warm without being as sweaty as I expected. I did take them off for a longer (2-mile) climb, where I also unzipped a jacket. The gloves fit very well, true to a size medium, and allow impressive dexterity. The rubber pattern on the palm/fingers is nice and grippy even when wet. I don't expect to use them except in rainy weather, and they seem perfect for that purpose as they were designed; so thank you Rapha!

Hi, are you able to use a touch screen with these gloves on?

Asked by: unvert
Hi, these gloves are not designed to be used with a touch screen. In conditions you would wear these gloves, you would most likely not want to use your phone.
