Cold isn't an excuse.

With the right gear, you don't have to limit your riding to a dank basement or crowded spin class at the gym. Gloves like Castelli's Estremo offer the coverage and weather protection for pedaling through those dark winter months.

Not only do these gloves sport wind- and water-resistant WindStopper X-Fast fabric on the back of the hand, they're equipped with a fleece liner. The liner keeps your paws warm, but it also contributes to comfort by wicking perspiration and transferring it to the outer WindStopper Layer. This combination of warmth retention and weather defense lets the Estremo confidently lead a full-frontal winter assault.

But warmth, weather protection, and perspiration management aren't the only things we expect from a sub-freezing cycling glove. The connection to your hoods is just as important, and the Estremo delivers with a gripy and durable fabric for the palm and fingers. This offers excellent feedback for control, accurate shifts, and confident braking. The palm is also treated to a vibration dampening palm for reduced fatigue on those longer rides.

A microsuede thumb panel offers a soft wiping surface, and the wide neoprene cuff ensures The Estremo locks out all cold air. The Castelli Estremo Gloves come in Black and sizes Small through XX-Large.

Deep Freeze Fighter

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

This year I decided to spend the money that would allow me to ride comfortably in some of the coldest weather we get in Alabama (yes it isn't North Dakota). This winter I have spent more time riding at night than in daylight because the sun goes down around 5pm or so. I have a pair of LG Defend gloves which I really like (thinsulate) because they have a lot of dexterity but around the freezing mark they don't cut it. So I bought this glove. It is a thicker glove and the dexterity is not as good as I would like but once I wore them one time, I found it pretty easy to adjust. That is just a necessary part of the equation and I did not want to go to some lobster claw set up. I have only ridden in them twice since I bought them at the tail end of winter. Both rides were around the 30 to 32F mark with chill factor down to 20F to 22F plus the cold here is almost always a wet cold (70 percent humidity+) which can really challenge a temp rating on any kit. The gloves performed admirably. My hands have been toasty each time where in the same conditions in the LG gloves (which I tried) my hands were chilled to the bone (which is why I bought these). They have a nice grippy palm and are well constructed. I have no problem operating the shifters/brakes even though they are a bigger loft glove. Money well spent that keeps me on the bike outside when most folks are on their indoor trainers wanting to blow their brains out because they are so bored. Oh, as to size, my hand measures 8.5in. which put me near the top of medium so I opted to go up to a large. It fits fine. I am hesitant to say it runs small because of the sizing range but indicated that in the review.

Almost too warm

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Unless it's baking hot outside, I always wear long fingered gloves as hands get cold very easierly.

I've tried every so called winter glove, but these are the first that actually keep my fingers warm, after many hours in freezing cold weather.

Gloves have made progress in past 30 yea

  • Size Bought: Medium.

Got these for X-mas from my wife, that is to say I ordered them, she paid. Thank you Ms. Santa! My last pair of winter gloves were purchased in the early 1980's - what a difference 3 1/2 decades make. They run a little small, medium fits me perfectly, often I buy small gloves. They are warm, felt great on a day when the real feel temp was 33 degrees and I was riding 18 mph. I recommend these, nice detail, worth every penny. Anyone want my old red cycle pros with 37 years use?

Very warm gloves!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXL

I have warranties in fairly cold conditions this season already and it found them to be very warm! My hands tend to get very cold with any glove but these have fit the bill very nicely! They do run small so by a size up from what you regularly buy.

Super Warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

These guys are super warm in the worst conditions you would probably consider riding in, down in the 20s and wet. Above 40 deg and they're actually hot. Don't forget wind chill factor. Enough dexterity for Mtb as well. Not sure about durability, our winter is only about a month, if that... :)

Warm fingers are happy fingers!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: large

These gloves work great. the lowest I've ridden with these was down to 25 degrees for about an 1 hour and 40 minutes. My fingers stayed warm the entire times. The first time I worn them I was shocked to not come back with fingers that felt like they would shatter if I bent them! They are slightly expensive but are well worth it if you ride often in colder temps. Get these bad boys for that cold weather riding!

Good cold weather glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I live in Minnesota so we understand cold. These gloves are really pretty good. The main problem with gloves and fingers is that they are stuck out in essentially a relentless high wind situation. Any little pin hole (literally, a pin hole) in a glove will eventually cause cold fingers. The other enemy of warm hands is an inability to wick moisture out of the glove.

These gloves are made from some sort of soft shell like material that provides great dexterity for shifting but seems to be almost seam sealed compared to other gloves (even Castello's great 3.1 gloves from last year). I rode with this in sub 30F temps a week ago and they were toasty warm, almost hot. I'd say that these gloves could easily go down to low 20's and maybe even colder.

Road or Mountain, GREAT winter glove!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My main concern about winter riding is my hands and feet. I literally have over 10 pairs of gloves and multiple bootie/sock/shoe combinations to combat the frozen finger and/or toe experience that ruins a winter ride. I try to have an overlap and choose my gear based on anticipated weather. Of course, this requires a lot of "guesstimation" and only succeeds about 50% of the time.
Prefaced with that, the Estremos are the the best winter glove I have come across. For me, they are solid from 25-40 degrees (close to what Castelli would tell you). The good news is this eliminates at least two other pairs in my closet. They are both have the dexterity and durability to ride them on the mountain (although I would expect that this shortens their lifespan significantly).
The only concession to their warmth is that is comes at the expense of some breathability you would like in a cycling glove. This is to be expected but once you overheat these gloves, it becomes hot and wet!
Again, best, wide range winter gloves I have worn...and I have worn many!

The Quest is finally over!

    I have spent time and dollars trying to find The Glove for cold weather riding. Well, my quest is over. These glove are amazing.
    You do give up a little dexterity or adroitness, for those smarty pants out there, but it is well worth it. I have no problems with breaking, gripping, or gear changing. This morning the temperature in the canyon where I ride was 39 F and with my other wide selection of cold weather gloves I would have been miserable after 20 minutes. With the Castelli's, 90 minutes later and I was wondering when the cold was going to penetrate. It never did.
    I normally wear a large glove but I purchased the XL glove due to the extra insulation and they fit perfectly.
    That's it. Hope this helps.
    Cheers.

    Great winter gloves.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This winter has been harsh in NE, I used these gloves all the way down to 10F (with wind chill felt like 0F), & I was conformable, yes it might be little colder in them after 45 min or so...Optimal temp for these is in my opinion from 15-35F, anything warmer than that you'll be sweating too much.

    Would these gloves be able to do double duty as xc-ski gloves?

    I think so! Of course, it always depends on the conditions...I have worm them for colder mountain rides. Depending on the weather and whether you run hot or cold, maybe take a warmer and/or lighter pair with you in your pack. On a blustery night ride, I found the Estremos to be perfect for the entire ride but on a less cold evening, I overheated on the way up but was perfect on the way down.



    Solid dexterity, breathe relatively well and pretty durable Give 'em a go!

    Fantastic Cold Weather Gloves

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These gloves are fantastic. They stay dry in wet weather and are a good balance between bulk and warmth. They're bulkier than my neoprene gloves I wear in the 40s, but you have to expect that at temps below freezing. I can ride in temps below thirty with wind for about 1.5 hours before my hands start to feel cold, and I can last another hour before they get uncomfortable. I don't feel I can really expect more than that. The strong Velcro wrist closures are great to go over the cuffs of your jacket to prevent airflow. Couldn't be happier.

    Good, but not Extreme. Bulky.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Disclaimer: I've NEVER found a pair of winter gloves that keep my hands warm. I get cold easily, especially my fingers and toes. After using these a number of times, my search for a dead-of-winter glove continues.

    Pros: very well-constructed, good wind and water protection, secure velcro closure at the wrist, long cuff, good grip.

    Cons: very bulky (but, strangely, still a good fit), not warm enough for me. On a 35-degree day, my fingertips were numb within the first hour.

    I honestly don't think that mitts are the problem. Based on your first sentence I suspect that either your head or core (or possibly both) are not warm enough. When this happens the body draws blood away from your extremities in an attempt to keep the really important parts of your body warm - the result is cold fingers and toes. Give it a shot!

    My go-to winter glove

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Well made glove that is great for rides from mid 20's to 40F. I have used these gloves for 2 winters now and find that they really do work even in snow. Despite being a little bulky, they are very comfortable, allow you to shift with ease and keep your hands warm. The strong velcro cuff keeps the glove snug and protects your wrists. Low 20's is probably pushing the glove and I felt the cold. Above the low 40's F your hands begin to sweat and a lighter glove would be a better choice.

    Chunky & Strong

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These certainly tow the line. So far I have gone to 20F and they are still more than adequate. My only complaint is that they are a bit bulky, once they are on... you can't do much with your hands other than ride and shift. I don't mind the extra velcro around the cuff, it is critical on windy days. I have yet to get rained on with these gloves, I'll update the post next rain-shower. If you want Castelli's coldest glove, Estremo is a solid buy.

    AMAZING

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So happy with these gloves. Probably order slightly larger than you normally would. Cuts wind excellent, keeps my hands dry and warm. Best winter gloves i have ever owned. For the folks that say they are not good below freezing, well, probably true, but I don't ride outside beyond a commute to work when the temps drop below freezing so i don't care. they are great in the mid 30's through 50 degrees.

    Decent, but not "extreme"

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

    I bought these hoping for a big upgrade over my semi-windproof medium weight $15 Nashbar winter gloves, and for something warmer than my mid weight Garneau and Defeet gloves.These are -- obviously -- way better. That said, they are pretty ineffective below 30 degrees. On a bunch of recent rides in the 20s with winds anywhere from 5-15 mph, my fingers felt pretty cold most of the distance. Above 30, they're great -- and above 40, they'd be way too much. That narrow a band of temperature suitability may restrict how much use I'll get out of them. I used the Castelli size chart, which indicated size L, & the gloves fit snugly (but not too tightly -- and given the padding, I wouldn't want to size up). The long cuff is a nice touch for those of us with long arms (though yes, the Velcro is indeed "aggressive"). A small note, but maybe significant: the nose wipe fabric is very smooth, and ends up feeling way too harsh. Or maybe I just have a delicate schnozz. At $90, I was hoping for more.

    Warm enough.

      Was hoping to find the glove to end all gloves. These aren't it. Let me explain. Took them out in minus 7 degree weather and the gloves didn't cut it. Everything else worked fine. The Castelli WS balaclava and Diluvio 16 shoe covers worked, but these didn't quite cut it. Oh well, the quest continues.

      Upper 30's and up

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Let me start by saying I generally have more problems than many others with cold fingers, so these may work better for others at low temperatures. I use these as my in between gloves - between lightly insulated gloves for upper 40's and up, and Lobster glove temperatures which start at mid 30's. The size chart is wrong for sure, I ordered my first set by the chart which put me in the middle of a medium, had to return for a large size which fits snug. The fingers are small in diameter so I can't see being able to use liners effectively in these to make them more effective at lower temperatures. They are a bit bulky however don't bunch on the bars or restrict movement for shifting etc. My second set (the large size that fit right) had to be returned for a replacement as the velcro that is part of the base of the glove came unstitched after a few rides. The replacements are doing fine. They can be a bit cumbersome getting them loose due to the aggressive velcro. Overall they fit an unfulfilled need for me however I was disappointed they would work for me at lower temperatures.
