These are the most comfortable gloves I have been able to locate over several years. I think they are superior to the Castelli Castelli Rosso Corsa Glove (Non-S) which I also have a pair of. The S. Rosso Corsa; are softer, conform to the hand better and have a velcro closure. I tried different colors of this same glove and found the white/grey version to be just a bit softer and more comfortable than the black or red. I've had them now for about one month and they are my favorites by far.
