The Classic Gloves should feature in any cyclist’s arsenal of cool weather riding garments. They use a warm thermo-roubaix fabric to offer breathable insulation and wind protection, and are treated with a DWR (durable water repellant) coating for water resistance. Incredibly resistant to abrasion, the palms of the Classic Gloves are made with a durable leather, chosen for dexterity and superb grip in all conditions. The gloves are constructed from as few panels as possible, and all seams have been moved away from points of pressure for maximum comfort. A reflective Rapha logo is placed on the back of the hand for an element of visibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D_Van from Great gloves for cool weather riding Well made and excellent dexterity. Good for cool conditions, but I found when the temperatures approached 0C or if it was raining heavily, these gloves were not suited for those conditions (nor were the Pro Team gloves I tried previously). The fit was snug and it was difficult to fit the merino liner underneath. However, overall this is an excellent glove for several purposes and I am very happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nthkl from Supple palms yet thin. Could use straps. This will be my 11th pair of gloves purchased this year, and my last. Till they wear out. Been riding in 45-70F degree weather and these have been fine. We will see if they are too warm come summer. The palms are fine if you tape your bars correctly for your preferred allotment of padding. I only wish that they had some more security in the wrist area strap wise to cinch down for sprinting. I feel a bit of movement when i am out of the saddle which I do not want, especially if I hit an unexpected bump.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DMM1 from Very odd gloves These gloves look and feel like driving gloves. The fingers are long and skinny. So if you have stubby fingers like me, size down. Good gloves for the time between summer and winter, when your hands get cold on the morning rides, but winer gloves would make you too hot. I purchased the gloves at half price. Very expensive but you are getting full lever palms and fingers

How waterproof are these gloves, I need a pair for cycle touring in cold rain such as the Gore C-5 GoreTex glove.
These Gloves are treated with A DWR for water resistance but are not fully waterproof

Are the classic gloves most supple/less bulky than the winter gloves please?
The construction of the Classic Gloves is less bulky than that of the Winter Gloves
Date published: 2018-01-22
Are these going to be a replacement for the winter gloves or are they intended for warmer weather.
The Winter Gloves feature an insulation layer in their construction, so would be suitable for colder temperatures than the Classic Glove. The Classic Gloves use a Thermoroubaix material to create a less bulky winter glove that is water resistant

Are these gloves going to be warmer than the Pro Team gloves? I chose the Pro Team over the Winter gloves for the dexterity, but find them not warm enough at times. Thank you.
These gloves will be warmer than the Pro Team Gloves due to the Thermoroubaix Fleece Lining combined with the Windproof material in the body of the Gloves.

Hi - Can you confirm what colour these gloves are. The photos of rider on bike show them to be blue but the selling image makes them look like they are black. Thanks
These Gloves are initially being offered in Black only, but we are due to launch further colours in the coming weeks
