Our new cycling glove embraces both traditional imagery, contemporary design and ergonomic construction.

 

Smooth, vented style.   We produced our finest leather cycling glove in honour of the champion of champions. In winning the Giro di Lombardia five times he made it his own, but even as a light climber, to win over the pave of Paris–Roubaix, proved how deserving of champion status he was. These are FULLY hand cut and sewn so will have small differences (character) from something robot made. The palm is lightly padded by adding an extra layer of walnut brown leather.  The Campionissimos rear leather is gently perforated with large knuckle holes to assist with ventilation. The gloves are naturally dyed cream leather with a walnut trim.  Goatskin is often referred to as nature’s strongest leather. It has very high tensile-strength and abrasion-resistant properties, but has excellent softness and is lightweight.

 

A forceful teacher in 1927 encouraged an 8 year old Angelo Fausto Coppi to write  “I ought to be at school, not riding my bicycle” Thankfully he didn’t listen. Il Campionissimo. Fausto excelled in both climbing and time trialing. He won the Giro d’Italia five times and Le Tour de France twice. But his total style was displayed sprinting to the World Championship victory in 1953.

 

The leather will bond and stretch to your hand after a few rides, so should feel tight and snug around the fingers when first put on. Once matched they will be your new favourite thing.

 

A good track mitt is removed by pulling off inside out.

    Just awesome, Love the smell of leather riding along. Would (and did) size down as the size chart leaves them fitting larger than my normal mitts.

    Wonderful mitts from a wonderful company. Wearing well 500 miles in, and extremely comfortable. Made me smile on my trip to the Alps and especially on a romp up Col du Galibier. This company is ace: great quality, great customer service, supreme value for money!

    Just back from 900 miles cycling out to Italy wearing these and they were brilliant. Really comfortable, look great and give you some killer tan lines! Highly recommended.

    I bought these last summer as a treat to myself after buying an Italian bike- they are great, they fit true to size, I generally take off my gloves when I am going up a climb as I find the gloves a bit restricting and warm, but with the leather, my hands stayed cool….. Another great product by Galibier-thanks!!

    A feeling of irresistible nostalgia overcame me when I saw these mitts on the website. They come up to expectation and look like they do on the screen. Sizing I found a touch large after ordering as the guide suggested but coming down a size was perfect.

    Having now rode around 10’000 km in there gloves I think I am totally converted to leather gloves. The fit wonderfully, look good and most importantly are very comfy.

    I was a bit worried how the leather would wash and dry. Well the answer is if you take a bit of care and use a quality balm you will have no issues. Yes much more work than synthetic, but I have never had a synthetic glove as comfy and long lasting.

    I had stitching issues with my first pair, the customer service was spot on.

    I don’t think I have ever reviewed a pair of gloves – but these are the exception as they are so comfy.

    Have been using these mitts now for a couple of months and they are wonderful. They are a very good fit and your hands don’t get hot in warm weather.They are always comfortable and look awesome

    I’ve been using these for over a year now and they literally are my single favorite cycling “thing”.

    I was delighted when spring gave way enough to the sun to get them out again.

    There something more elemental about them than synthetic mitts. It’s like the difference in Ray Bans and beach side bootlegs, or Doc Martin’s and eBay copies. They feel like an old friend now. Maybe because they kind of mould to you, whatever the reason. I’m hooked. I love them.

    I used full leather “mitts” many years ago, and ones with a crochet back, that was all there was. When newer designs came in, with padding and ergonomic bits, I fell into that trap. Riding track I like minimal padding, and full length gloves, but they must be just right, not too grippy (5Bling) not too slippy. I bought these to go with my raod bile, but now I have two pairs, one of which is in my “track” bag, and they are simply the best I have evber owned. On the road, I often suffered from numb fingers, so went to padded mitts and gloves, but somehow these with no padding, are just comfortable, they never slip, or feel sweaty, oh and they have cool/wank rating of 11/10
