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.
In the past I haven't normally worn gloves while riding, but while training for Unbound Gravel and hitting some pretty rough sections I thought some gloves might be a good idea. I chose these based on the "Arenberg" description, the dampening system, and the mesh backing to keep the top of my hands cool. They did not disappoint. They helped to smooth out the roughest terrain the Flint Hills of Kansas threw at me during Unbound this year. I'm very glad I chose to go with these gloves for my race and continue to use even after the race is over.
It is obvious that a lot of thought went into the design and construction of these gloves. The Castelli Arenberg is constructed of several different fabrics, all with a specific purpose. The tops of the glove allow for gentle air cooling, and the top Velcro closure is perfectly placed, and securely holds throughout every one of my rides. In the past I have used other big name gloves with closures on the palm-side of the glove and they never seemed to stay secured - these Castellis stay properly secured. The palm grip is well-constructed with an approximately 20 mm tab to pull the glove snuggly onto the hand. There are 7 individual small pads on the palm side that allow for excellent responsiveness while road cycling. The gloves are very easy to hand-wash and rinse/hang to dry. I am impressed with the gloves, and will be ordering them again when the time comes.
I like the gloves and they seem to offer the right amount of padding. I would normally wear these every day in warm weather. I've noticed that I have wiggle out of them more than my last pair which makes me think they are running a little small. When they are on, they feel great, so I'm not certain how to describe the fit. I can't say with any certainty how durable these gloves are. By reputation, Caselli sells a very good product so I'm hoping to get a few good years of use from them.
Nice gloves, not too much padding, not bulky, just right for me. I maybe should have gone a size larger, fit is great but fingers are a little tight when removing. Iï¿½ve only had them a couple months but so far really happy with them.
The Castelli Arenberg is a sharp looking and nicely designed glove that combines different fabrics which allow the top of the hand to stay cool and ventilated, while the palm/grip portion is constructed of a more hardy material. The bar padding is excellent, and the top side velcro is perfectly located. They are easy to hand-wash and hang dry. I will definitely be looking for another pair of these when is comes time for a replacement.
First time using this brand for cycling gloves. Like the fit, the look and the comfort. Bought two pair and shared with a friend who is also happy with them. Good product and always a good price at BikeTiresDirect - my go to for all biking needs!
I occasionally get numbness in my hands on my road bike. On some gravel rides my hands need some protection. Enter the Arenberg gloves by Castelli. These are it for me. Padding is generous but not excessive, closure system is reliable (earlier versions were less so), palms are grippy, and it has the snot wiper area on the thumb for those days when you need it.
Had these gloves for two seasons. Love them so much I bought another pair in another color. I've had other brands that are cheaper and the padding don't last very long. It breaks down. Not these babies!!
I was riding w a buddy in St. Louis, I flew down so we rented bikes at a shop to ride. I saw these gloves and tried them on and instantly fell in love w the quality. The cushion is way better than other gloves.
