Description

Enough protection and style for eight fingers and two thumbs.

As fall rolls into winter, cyclists in cold climates are stuck with a dilemma: persevere with outdoor training or relent and surrender to the trainer for the season. Cold and wet are a strong argument for the latter, but they can be overcome thanks to the process of free radical polymerization. Though this process may as well be magic to us non-chemists, the benefits of the neoprene it produces are readily apparent to anyone who has worn the Castelli Dilluvio Gloves.

The Dilluvio gloves, courtesy 3mm of digit-saving neoprene, fend off temperatures as low as 39.2 degrees Fahrenheit and maintain a 100% effective barrier against external water. This is the same stuff that divers use to stay dry, so a little road spray or winter rain doesn't stand a chance.

The gloves address slippery handlebars with a non-slip palm, ensuring that your grip stays true, even if your hoods are wet. The extended neoprene cuff expands coverage to include your entire wrist — a must for those taller cyclists who have trouble finding jackets with long sleeves. The smart, off-centered placement of the iconic scorpion logo makes them one of the most attractive pieces of winter kit we've seen come through our office, so your hands and wrists will stay dry and warm in style.

The Castelli Dilluvio Gloves - Men's are available in Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large in three graphical variants: Black, Castelli Text, and Red Scorpion.

Here's what others have to say...

Poor Quality, Stinky

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First, a warning. Neoprene is really hard to dry out. So, if you forget to turn these inside out after every ride, your hands end up smelling like wet dog, or worse.

And there's the little issue that the fabric covering on the neoprene separates from the neoprene very quickly. Very poorly made. Would not recommend.

It's neoprene so it's gotta be warm...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Neoprene is great. I used to surf and the function of the product, as I understand it, is once I got in the water...the neoprene worked to use my body temp to warm the water between me and the suit.

So, these gloves are great but....for me, only great for a short time (like a CX race). Starting out warm but soon sweaty isn't warm....for long. Don't get me wrong, I like these gloves and use them for my intended purpose...Cross Racing! 40 mins/5 laps is just long enough to fend off wet/cold but any longer, for me, means sweaty hands/cold hands. I don't intend to use these for "long" rides.

Sizing, I have a size 8 glove so the smalls fit great. The fingers are curved just perfect. The cuff isn't too long and it fits tight around my wrist. The gloves are made well, IMHO...stitching is burly. The graphics are cool but I don't expect them to last long due to repeated off and on. I'm hoping they last a couple of seasons but it depends, like everything, how well I take care of them/use them.

All in all, a pretty decent glove for wet/cold riding.

Can you operate an iphone screen with these?

these are not iphone touch friendly but check out Sugoi RS Zeroplus Gloves, Sugoi Firewall LT Glove and the Sportful WS Leggero Gloves, those would all work with a touch screen.
