Highly technical cycling gloves for cold and wet conditions
The Deep Winter Gloves are made from innovative technical fabrics and constructed for excellent protection without compromising control. The outer shell uses a windproof, stretch nylon with a Durable Water Repellent treatment, which is then filled with Primaloft® insulation. A waterproof and breathable OutDry® membrane is then bonded to the shape of the shell to give an excellent fit (as opposed to the ‘floating’ liners used in many gloves) and finished with an insulating tricot lining against the skin.
The inside of the palm features a different Primaloft® insulation, originally created for snowsports and treated with a resin so it won’t slip against your skin when gripping the bars. Rapha’s trademark military-grade padding also features in key wear areas.
Overlayed onto the palm is an outer face providing abrasion resistance - on the black gloves this is made from Pittards leather and on hi-vis pink a synthetic suede overlay is used. Elasticated cuffs, with a velcro closure are designed to fit snugly around a jacket sleeve. The gloves also feature reflective stripes and logos, as well as wipes on both thumbs.
Please note: TIf washing these gloves, once dried, glove balm should be applied to the leather panels on the palms to keep them supple. The Deep Winter Gloves are part of the Rapha Glove System and are designed to be worn with the Merino Liners.

Are this glows supposed to be quite thick on the upper side on the middle of the palm? Do they stretch in general after some time or i need 1 size up if i'm gonna use merino liner in to feel more comfortable? I purchased size as pdf draw suggested.
At what temperature (degrees Celsius) do these gloves keep the heat of the hand? This applies cycling around 2.5 - 3 hours. Of course, with the use of MERINO LINER.
Hi, I bought these gloves a year ago. Love them. Think they are really great however I’ve noticed they are not 100% waterproof (I’m talking in serious 3-4 hours of rain) should DWR reapplicator be applied to this product or do I need the Neoprene gloves?
Hi, Can these gloves be machine washed? The info says not to do everything except this. If so, what temperature? Thanks.
Is the shell fabric for both the colors the same material? The pink looks quite translucent while the black feels more durable. Is that so? Thanks.
Hi, I take it Pittards leather would not be vegan, correct? Thanks
Is the hand length for the total length of the glove or is the cuff in addition? I am 18cm wrist to finget-tip but I'd like another 7cm of cuff. Is the knuckle measurement the measurement of my knuckles or of the liner in the glove at that point?
Hi. Do they work with smartphone touch screen ?
Thank you for your request. We’ll contact you when your Deep Winter Gloves is available.
