Assos rainGlove_evo7 $88.95
Dry, warm, and in control.
The Assos rainGlove_evo7 has evolved from its previous iteration, and the changes aren't just aesthetic. Don't worry, the inimitable protection against the elements remains. And Assos being Assos, the fit has been refined even more to maintain finger dexterity and keep shifter interference to a minimum.
You may have noticed that the fingers on Assos' gloves tend to look a little different than other manufacturers'. This is thanks to their new 3-D construction method, a feature of the evo line, which is meant to ensure that the fingers fit like, well, a glove. This precise fit is complemented by the use of low-volume neoprene, which keeps the wet out and just the right amount of warmth in. Your hands will stay dry and warm, but not at the cost of losing touch with your handlebars and levers.
The rainGloves wear comfortably in the mid-range temperatures of early fall and late spring by themselves. In temperatures dropping to 50 and below, pair them with an inner layer like Assos' own tiburuGlove_evo7 or any other knit-type cycling gloves for increased insulation and elemental protection. The rainGlove also lets you wipe water away from your glasses, keeping the road in focus when precipitation exacerbates potential road hazards.
The Assos rainGlove_evo7 is available in six sizes ranging from X-Small to XLG in the color Black Volkanga.

for people with really skinny fingers on

- Fit: True to size

I am a plastic surgeon with normal to thin short fingers--I can force my fingers into this glove but all the circulation is cut off in all ten fingers. This is a unique achievement (gangrene of all ten fingers at once) that no other glove, imho, can equal
Neoprene Gloves... Welcome to the 1950's

Yes, this is neoprene. It's the same neoprene you find in wetsuits. Wikipedia says neoprene was invented in the 30s. Wetsuits made out of neoprene appeared in the 50s. This is the same stuff. Having said that, if there is such a thing as ‘nicer’ neoprene, then these gloves are made of that ‘nicer’ stuff.
Assos has added perfect workmanship and little features like what are purported to be silicon wiper blades on the tops of your index fingers, used for wiping your glasses while riding (they work, by the way). There is a white panel between index and middle fingers, maybe to make your hand signals more visible in the dark?
Assos rain gloves cost more than their competitors. I think it worth the extra cost. Castelli makes gloves like these, so does Sugoi. I own both. These are better – the neoprene feels more supple, my hands stay warmer, and I don’t’ feel like I’m wearing oven mitts.
