As winter rolls in, cyclists in cold climates are stuck with a dilemma: persevere with outdoor training or relent and surrender to the trainer for the season. Cold and wet are a strong argument for the latter, but they can be overcome thanks to the process of free radical polymerization. Though this process may as well be magic to us non-chemists, the benefits of the neoprene it produces are readily apparent to anyone who has worn the Castelli Diluvio Gloves.
The Diluvio gloves, courtesy 3mm of digit-saving neoprene, fend off temperatures as low as 2.5 degrees Celsius and maintain a 100% effective barrier against external water. This is the same stuff that divers use to stay dry, so a little road spray or winter rain doesn’t stand a chance.
The gloves address slippery handlebars with a non-slip palm, ensuring that your grip stays true, even if your hoods are wet. The extended neoprene cuff expands coverage to include your entire wrist — a must for those taller cyclists who have trouble finding jackets with long sleeves. The smart, off-centered placement of the iconic scorpion logo makes them one of the most attractive pieces of winter kit we’ve seen come through our office, so your hands and wrists will stay dry and warm in style.
The Castelli Diluvio Gloves – Men’s are available in Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large in three graphical variants: Black, Castelli Text, and Red Scorpion.
