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.

These gloves seem very warm but they are a bit bulky. Wrist adjustment is nice and will interface well with jerseys and jackets. Will probably only use for mtb. because I ride my brakes loose on road and CX and the bulk of these interferes with pulling the brake levers all the way back. But when I say loose--I mean like almost all the way to the bar. If I lived in a consistently cold climate, I'd probably set up a training bike with tighter brakes and these glove would then work for that application.

Sets the Standard

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Size M, true to size in my opinion. I wore the gloves during a mid winter day with the temperature in upper 30's. My hands were extremely comfortable on this 1 hr ride. It took a little getting used to them and shifting more so than braking. I like the soft area at the base of thumb to wipe a dripping nose. Maybe next generation they can upgrade the index finger for touch screen capability. Still gets a 5 star rating.

Just does the job if you have Reynauds

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

I have Reynauds in both hands so, in my opinion, there isn't a "typical" winter glove I own (Ever hopeful, I own 6 pairs of winter gloves from 3 different companies) that has a temperature range rating that runs true to the printed spec. The Estremo is certainly the warmer of the 3 pair (Tempesta II and Spettacolo are the other two) from Castelli that I own and are good to about 34 - 36 degrees on a 1 - 2 hour ride. I still have white finger tips, however, when I get home. The Estremo is well made and is even in the small, just large enough to slide in a pair of thin liners without getting too tight or restrictive.

I've resorted to lithium-ion powered heated glove liners for the colder days. Battery tech has improved a lot so I can get about 3 hours on the medium setting on a full charge. I pull on fleece-lined waterproof shell "lobster" style mitts with gauntlets long enough to cover the battery pack (the shell is a now discontinued REI Novara model). While they look like big fat lollipops when I wear them, it's made a world of difference for commuting and longer rides during Pacific NW winters where it can dip to the 20's and lower.

Warm and comfortable

  • Size Bought: L

First “winter” ride. 2 hour ride in upper 30s low 40s and did not think about my hands/fingers once. I had a little bit of sweat with these gloves. Sweat was not a problem. Nice cushioning and great “feel” for a large profile glove. This glove is not an aerodynamic glove. Size was pretty much spot on. I wear large in all brands and same with this one. I would buy this glove again!!!!

Quality Warmth and Water Resistant

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

These gloves are amazing, the fit is true to size, they kept my hands warm into the low 40's and I am sure they would be fine into the low 30's they feel like they breath well but are still reliable if you are caught in an early spring rain storm. They are not a low profile glove, but they are warmer than any low profile gloves I have owned previously.

Castelli Estremo Gloves

These are the best winter gloves I've ever owned. they fit perfectly, I especially like when removing them the lining doesn't pull out as they're sewn into the gloves themselves.

A winter training life saver!

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

This glove saved my winter training season. For me, the worst part of cold weather riding is the discomfort and danger of riding with cold, numb hands. This glove is great at keeping out wind and water. The velcro wrist strap extends a bid up the forearm. The fingers are grippy. The feel is a bit chunky, but still allows the fingers to be fully functional.

Better Than Most

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

While I don't believe anyone will ever create the perfect winter glove, these have proved to be better than many in my arsenal. I have worn these comfortably down to the freezing mark; below that I would add a wool liner or switch to a lobster claw. Above 45F (7C) I would go with something lighter. These feel solid and well-made and the long cuffs prevent gaps and help keep the cold out.

My fingers are frozen!

  • Fit: True to size

Not was I was expecting from these gloves. For the price that was paid, I was expecting to have toasty fingers, but that is not what I got. My fingers quickly became very cold when riding in cold weather. The fabric did not stop the wind either.

I agree, just got back from a 2 hr ride in 35 deg 10 mph conditions. despite wearing a set of liner gloves my fingertips became extremely cold and uncomfortable.

Sadly, not the ultimate winter glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I've worn them on a 35-mi road ride that started at about 1-2ºC/34F. The tips of the ring and middle fingers soon got chilly and I had to wiggle them all the time. Not warmer than my 4 year old LG Thinsulate gloves which are less bulky.

Speaking of bulk, shifting (Sram Rival 10) was OK. Reaching into my back pocket for a 40g gel though was impossible!

The snot pad is nice but there's no phone touchscreen patch. On the plus side, the gloves are easy to put on and take off.

All my gloves (summer, including Castelli's own; fall; winter) are size M; I went for Large with these. They are snug inside, while, as already mentioned, being quite bulky on the outside.

I own a lot of Castelli gear and had high expectations for these, particularly considering the price....

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

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

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

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.

    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.
