Preserve your palms.
Castelli has impressed us before with pieces inspired by the rigors of Roubaix. With its Arenberg Gel Gloves, the brand specifically brings to mind the hellish section of cobblestones in the Arenberg Forest, hoping to alleviate some of the pain experienced by riders during long rides on uneven roads with a dose of gel padding.
The half-finger design preserves lever feel, and the combination of the AX Suede palm with a mesh upper results in a glove that provides dependable grip on the bars without trapping heat around your palms. Whether the famed cobblestones of Arenberg are on your riding calendar or you'll be tackling lesser-known, but equally demanding terrain, the gel lining on the palm can be counted on to absorb road vibrations and cushion your palms as you rack up the miles.
