The perfect mix of breathability and cushioning, the Castelli Women’s Elite Gel Gloves have palms made from perforated Clarino (a synthetic leather-like material) with gel insert padding in all the right places. Extra grip is provided by the silicone-printed logos across the palms, and micro-suede panels along the thumbs will soak up any sweat (sorry, glow). Lightweight Lycra on the back panels gives good fit and it’s interspersed with mesh panels to keep the air flowing. They’re available in five sizes and four colourways.
Price £35, available from: Castelli Cycling.
