Castelli Rosso Corsa Gloves $0.00
Spare your hands from a raw, sweaty ride with Castelli's Rosso Corsa Bike Glove.
The Rosso Corsa gloves from Castelli shouldn't be known so much for being one of the two gloves the Cervelo Test team uses, but because it has been deemed Rosso Corsa by Castelli.
Rosso Corsa simply translated means Racing Red. But it is much more than that. Rosso Corsa is the traditional red of international motor racing, the color all Italian race cars in international races were painted until the late 1960s. Racing red was definitely much cooler than the whit with two lengthwise stripes extending from the hood to the trunk that American cars rode. Rosso Corsa is reserved by Castelli to demarcate the best of their best, the garments where they've sweated every detail and have what they believe is a categorical breakthrough.
As Castelli puts a premium on presenting smooth lines to the wind, this glove has no strap or Velcro; it's a pull-on. The palm has generous padding, 5mm thick in sections, made of a porous gel pad to minimize palm sweat inside the glove. The outside of the palm has a Silicone print that won't slip even when the bars are covered with a sheen of rain and a patina of Belgian mud.
The back of the gloves are made in three parts. The central piece is a stretch mesh back; offering both sun protection and venting. The outside panel, where the scorpion logo is found, is Lycra. The inside panel with the embroidered Rosso Corsa logo is Lycra and the small scorpion logo is a soft, stretch terry wipe.
The Castelli Rosso Corsa Gloves come in Black/Black, Black/Red, and White/Red. Sizes range from Small to 3XL

What community has to say
I ordered the gloves according to the chart and the fit is true to size. I like the way they feel on my hands, but won't be able to put them to the test until it gets warmer. I am happy with my purchase.
At 50 bucks these things are a go. At 30, get outta here.
Favorite Summer Glove
These gloves have no velcro and are designed to fit race tight if you buy the right size. My hand measures 8.75 inches around the knuckle and i purchased M. They are very tight but tolerable. If you hand is larger than this I would recommend sizing up. Padding is awesome and they are a very sharp looking glove.

Mine say China.
The right amount of padding. Tight enough (yes hard to get off). Decent wipe area. Good ones.
I love everything about these gloves except that the stitching on the palm gives me blisters. Not sure if it is just my pair, but after about 40 miles or so I wind up stuffing these in my pocket and riding without gloves. I kept hoping that they would break in eventually, but it hasn't happened and I'm moving on.

I normally wear xl in Pearl gloves. Should I think about a size up in Castelli?
My hand measures 8.75 inches around the knuckle and i wear a M but they fit very snug. Hope that helps. I did not size up.
They are difficult to remove, its worth it to not have a velco tab or what have you. Felt a little lumpy in the palm at first, but now I almost forget I have them on. It now feels wrong to ride without them.
No complaints. Used for nearly a thousand miles now, washed several times, and still going strong. Comfortable, absorbs sweat like nobody's business.
Bought my first pair in Nov 2009 and have been using them up till Jun 2011! at around 200kms per week that a lot of use for a set of gloves. Ive just got a new pair and used them for two days riding the cobbles of Belgium, again they were up to the task. They are light, with the right amount of padding. They are difficult to get off but thats not really an issue. I highly recommend these gloves.
Feels great, difficult to remove
Very comfortable gloves. I like the consistent padding across the palm. Some other brands have separate pads for the base of the thumb and the base of the pinky, and for me the gap between them hurts my hands.
Yes, they are harder to get off than others, but if you are complaining about difficulty getting your gloves OFF, you clearly aren't cycling enough. :)
Sizing Chart is wrong. I bougth Medium. 7.5 - 8.7in (19-22cm) The fit is not like all Castelli items. Padding on these gloves nice, +150 km ( +93 miles) and my hands feels perfect!
Recomended, just be sure the correct size
Great gloves... until you try to get them off. Loved everything about them until I got home from that first ride and realized that little pull tab between the fingers was next to useless for removing the gloves. Personally, the loop they HAD on the PRO glove was my favorite. I say "had" because they've since replaced that with the aforementioned tab. Bad call on what could have been a great glove.
Fall apart pretty quickly
I like the fit and the padding on these gloves, but the stitching between the fingers and the trim at the bottom of the gloves started falling apart much earlier than other gloves I have used. That might be OK if the Castelli's weren't also a lot more expensive.
Great fitting glove
The new design is much better, especially the new pulls. The fit is very snug but the glove is amazing overall. TD
What does the tab on the inside of the...
What does the tab on the inside of the glove read? I'm doubting the authenticity of my glove as it reads Strato Sheer.
That sounds right, Strato Sheer is Castelli's proprietary fabric which provides protection from wind and is water repellent.
Great design - poor construction
Size is spot on per Castelli's sizing. I have an 8.5cm hand circumference and punted on a medium which I usually take in a glove size. While snug, is a perfect fit. Very comfortable.I agree with comments re stitching. Well below standard. Even more so considering the price. Had one finger panel stitching starting to unravel before even wearing it... I reinforced the finger panels with my own stitching otherwise would have fallen apart around some of the fingers in no time, are now fine with my handywork.But apart from the stitching, it is a superior glove to anything I have had before.
No loops this year
Castelli changed the finger loops to a pull tab - bad news, the loops are great for pulling them off your hands, the pull tab not as good.
nice padding not to much fit very well they breath very well great ventilation when riding in hot weather.
