As forks have improved, along with the trend towards higher volume tires, minimalist gloves previously associated with racing cyclists and masochists are now more popular overall, while still providing those who race at the highest levels and others who may enjoy numbness with great fit, function and features. The Castelli Competizione Glove is a low frills, slip-on race glove that covers the basics, maintains bar and control feel, while providing just enough padding and protection to engender respect from everyday cyclists.
A synthetic suede palm is durable and offers abrasion protection, while providing the base for the CDS median nerve protection, along with minimal padding zones for metacarpal, ulnar and thumb areas. These also carry silicone print for sure grip when wet or dry. The back of the Competizione Glove is as expected, with stretch mesh fabric to keep your hands cool and comfortable, while ensuring ideal fit. The on-off process is made easier by a small tab in between the middle and ring fingers, while the high-stretch cuff is comfortable and effective despite offering easier access.
