Description

Perfetto RoS Glove

When designers at Castelli set out to add a glove to the brand's Perfetto lineup, they knew they had to get things just right. After all — the Perfetto name draws quite a lot of attention, and comes with a high reputation. Fortunately they pulled out all of the stops with the Castelli Perfetto RoS Glove, packing in all new materials, minimal seaming, and just the right amount of cushion to keep you on the road, come rain or shine. The gloves begin construction with new GORE-TEX Infinium fabric that offers water and wind protection on the outside, while a fleece layer inside traps heat and ushers away sweat. The gloves provide ample warmth, despite being deceptively thin, so you can maintain mobility and dexterous control of your shifters and braking. The palm packs in Castelli Damping System, or CDS for short, strategically placing padding where your hand receives the most vibration from the road, aiming to reduce fatigue and elevate comfort while you ride.

  • Brave the cold with Castelli's new gloves, come rain or shine
  • Perfetto designation required acute attention to detail and precision
  • GORE-TEX Infinium fabric keeps out the cold, wet, and wind
  • Fleece backing traps heat inside, wicks away perspiration
  • Castelli Damping System on palm absorbs jarring forces from the road
  • Grippy silicon details on palm improve dexterity on shifters
  • Neoprene cuff prevents the elements from sneaking in

I can’t recommend these gloves highly enough. I’m a big fan of anything Castelli. Over the years, my love has been tested a only a few times, most recently with their ‘Spettacolo’ gloves which were not, well, all that spectacular. The palm grip panels on that model sheared off after 2-3 rides, although they remain usable and have made the grade otherwise. The hyperbolic naming has continued with the Perfetto, but this time it rings true. I have ridden with these on several chilly rides, some with light rain and/or stiff headwinds. Despite being impossibly thin and light, they are quite warm—at least as warm as the heavier Spettacolo—maybe warmer, although temps haven’t yet dipped below 40, when I usually reach for heavier gloves. The fit is nice and snug, so loss of dexterity is minimal when shifting, finding zipper pull-fobs, or poking around for a gel in the back pocket. Padding is grippy and substantial without being too bulky or obtrusive. Rain beads up and rolls right off, but I’m not sure that it would keep up with a real downpour. Most importantly, there is far less build-up of humid moisture in the inside, as you’d get with neoprene gloves that, in general, offer the best water resistance. Sizing chart is dead-on, but I have long-ish, skinny fingers. Even so, pulling these on (and especially off) takes some time. But, as with race-fit jerseys, etc., this is to be expected; they’re not too small, just form-fitting. For reference, my hands, at their widest diameter: 8.75 in/222mm; index finger: 3 1/8 in/80mm; hand length from wrist crease to tip of index finger: 7.5 in/190mm.

I haven't had a chance to use the gloves so ignore the stars. Based on other review comments about finger length, and the fact I have a long/slender hand, I sized down to L from my usual XL. However the fingers were too short and I had to return. So stick to your normal sizing. For reference my fingers are 8.5" from wrist to tip.

I bought these gloves for a fall and early winter riding (I live in Bend, OR). My hands get cold very easily, so I tend to need warmer gloves than almost anyone I've ridden with. I also specifically bought these due to the other reviews that mentioned long fingers, as I frequently run into problems with gloves where the finger length is a hair short for me. I would agree these a long - but great for me, and I'm sure it helps with the warmth! My take is these are pretty outstanding. They are very thin for a winter glove. Yet, they seem to keep my hands warm down to at least 40F, and I've had them in conditions now where it was snowing (early and slightly wet snow, so probably 30-35 temps). The only thing to beware of is, that they do take activity and a few minutes to heat up. I believe this is due to being thin and that there isn't a "pile" or "fleece" or similar type of material on the inside that would trap ambient heat as much. But, basically as soon as you have been riding maybe 10 mins, they will be warm. They handle moisture great. I haven't had them in a full downpour, but have had mild rain, and snow as mentioned. I'm saying "true to size" because I think while the fingers are long, the overall fit is accurate for the size. I've also found that they are likely going to be a great choice for AT skiing, when skinning up. Just used them for that the other day, and they were perfect! All in all, these are a great addition to my quiver, and I really like the fit and function.

I ordered these after speaking with Ian at CC. These gloves are probably the best gloves I have ever had over 30 years of cycling. Lightweight and can somehow handle high 30 to mid 50 temps without getting too cold or too hot respectively. Not sure how Castelli does this but good for them. Strange thing though and not a big deal at all is that I have owned a lot of Castelli gloves and have always bought one size up. These I assume are true to size. I always wear a XXL in Castelli and these are pretty long in the fingers. To summarize, I highly recommend these gloves as a workhorse with multiple temp applications.

Very comfortable, warm while providing good grip on the bars and plenty of flexibility. A little longer in the fingers than would have been needed for myself but they still work well, providing plenty of room to pull them up under or over a jacket sleeve.

They could be great but sizing is weird

First off, from trying these on I have a feeling that I'd love them. The outer material feels like a thicker version of the Gabba's front face - that's a good thing. There's enough stretch in the material to keep them from feeling to constricting and the thermal lining is exactly what I was hoping for compared to wearing Rapha Pro Team gloves with separate liners underneath in temps in the 40's F. The problem is: for a pair that fit my palms perfectly, the fingers are way too long. Index finger is a full inch too long, the others are anywhere from 1/4-3/4" of excess material. It's enough that the slack in the fingertips got caught in the levers when I tested changing gears with them on. I admit to having large palms for my finger length, but I'm not like freakishly-off or anything. I'd strongly recommend these for anyone with long, slender hands. If you have stubby mitts like mine, look elsewhere.

Great gloves

Runs small

Just like the Gabba jersey these gloves are quite amazing when it is wet and cold. While they don't feel cozy warm to start your ride they keep my hands plenty comfortable. After a 5 hr sub 40F ride that had significant rain, my hands were just fine. Never needed the 2nd pair of gloves I brought along.

All right; thought I would add to the review pile for this one because I'm very impressed after one wearing. I am very particular about gloves because once my hands get cold, they take a long time to warm up and I get very uncomfortable in the meantime. I used these today for the first time; temps were about 45, and they kept my hands warm throughout my 90 minute ride. I could really feel the insulating properties of the Goretex because when I upped the effort level, my hands would get warmer; which has never happened to me with any glove before. In fact, when I stopped mid-ride to talk to someone for a few minutes, my hands got warmer. They are very thin so you really do get a good feel for your bar/hoods/etc. In fact, I think they could be improved with maybe a millimeter or two more padding in the thumb/forefinger area to give you a bit more cushion where you grip the hoods, but this is a minor complaint. Based on my feel today, I think that I'd be comfortable down to about 40 Fahrenheit with these; but again, if you're really cranking out the watts, they might be good for high 30s; we'll see. One thing to keep in mind is that the fabric around the wrist is very tight and doesn't run very far. So the result of this was I felt some wind coming up my jacket sleeves. Not a big deal at 45, but probably more of a factor at very low temperatures. Recommended if you're looking for a thin, warm glove that gives you good tactile feel of your bars/hoods/etc.

You would be forgiven for doubting the performance of the new Perfetto RoS gloves. At first glance, they barely seem more substantial than a liner, but the resemblance ends there. The new Gore Infinium membrane is incredibly effective at blocking out the elements and the Roubaix fleece liner is warm enough to keep most hands comfortable down to the mid 30s. The gloves only consist of three pieces and offer the most "sock-like" fit of any technical glove I've worn. I normally wear a 9 in numerical sizing and the large gloves fit perfectly.
