I figured that the Premio glove by Castelli had to be good, itï¿½s in the name! But it exceeds my expectations! Lightweight, breathable, form-fitting and reinforced in the right places. It felt ï¿½broken-inï¿½ right from the start.
This glove does run a little small so I ordered up from my usual XL to the XXL and itï¿½s perfect.
Iï¿½ve used it in early/mid autumn here in Texas where itï¿½s still quite warm on most days. This glove feels good and takes on the sweat. It dries quickly and still feels comfortable.
I recommend this glove!!
These are really nice and seem to be well made. I have not ridden these yet. Bought size XXL because Iï¿½m a US size 12 1/2 and these are very tight. Not sure theyï¿½re going to work, but we will see in my next ride.
I bought a pair of these gloves early last year and put about 4000 miles on them. They were getting a bit ragged by June of this year so I looked around and found them at BikeTiresDirect. I ordered a pair and they arrived very quickly. I really like these gloves, they provide a decent amount of cushion but aren't overly padded. They seem quite robust, I got a lot of good miles out of my previous pair and probably could have worn them longer but the area around the finger holes were getting a bit frayed. So far this pair looks great.
Compared to the prior version of the aero race bib, I think the increased compression and new materials are a nice upgrade. Leg material is really nice with good compression., midsection feels fine, unabtrusive despite feeling higher up the tummy. straps are interesting and a bit rigid with a bit more reinforcement/padding in the shoulders. Also, I've always worn mediums (6', 165lbs with slightly larger legs and rump and thinner torso) and I find these a bit too tight and the shoulder straps too short for my height. I should probably have gotten large, but I'll just try to stretch out these mediums and see what happens.
