Castelli's Prima gloves were knit with the lightweight Coolmax yarn. Essentially, this material keeps your hands warm, while also wicking away moisture caused by sweaty palms. Additionally, the gloves feature silicone grip across the entire palm and fingers, increasing dexterity as you work your grip in the cold.
The grip pattern is the reason that the gloves have become a favorite for cyclocross riders and mechanics alike. Being able to pick up and maneuver your bike by the bars or the top tube, and not have it slip in your hands, is paramount to cyclocross success. These gloves accomplish just that.
Finished with a long knit cuff, the gloves slip easily under your jacket without adding bulk. The Castelli scorpion logo on the back sets them apart from wannabes and conductive thumb and forefinger pads make smart phone operation a simplified affair. Well, they actually make it possible.
