Experience superior protection and comfort with the Echelon Air Mitts.

Our Echelon Air mitts offer top-notch ventilation, ensuring your hands stay cool even during the most intense rides. Crafted for those who demand both sensitivity and protection, its palm is constructed from a resilient, water-resistant suede material. This ensures an excellent grip on the handlebars, while also providing a soft feel against the skin.

We’ve prioritized comfort in every aspect of its design. The rear glove, free from cumbersome velcro, uses malleable materials that ensure a snug fit, yet stretch easily for hassle-free removal. The back of the hand boasts suede knuckle protection, followed by a stretchy mesh fabric, minimizing seams and maximizing comfort. We’ve also shaped the thumb panel for improved articulation and incorporated a double fabric layer at the wrist to avoid potential irritants. Our commitment to safety shines through with the inclusion of a reflective logo.

Despite their lightweight nature (only 24 grams a pair), these gloves are built to last. They are double-stitched to withstand rigorous rides, promising to be your trusted companion season after season.

    These are tight! I would order a size up.
    Once on they fit like a… no, really, they are superb quality and super cool on the hottest days. No padding, but I like that in a summer road bike glove. Recommended for summer road rides so you can feel the bars.

    The best gloves I have tried yet. Close-fitting without feeling restrictive and thin enough for great feel on the bars whilst keeping your grip comfortable

  3. Charles Hunter (verified owner)

    Nice gloves, thin padding which I like, pull on, ride, pull off, done, wash every now and again, sorted.

    When looking for a summer cycling mitt I tend to prefer something thin, which lets me feel the bars, and unobtrusive. The Echelon mitts fit that description perfectly and at Galibier’s normal great value. Highly recommended if you’re after a no-nonsense, thin summer glove for road riding.

    I used these on Transcontinental No 6 and found them brilliant. They have covered probably over 10,000 km now and been subjected to all sorts of grime, sweat, heat and have remained undamaged and unstretched despite becoming rather unsavoury at times!
    I’d be sad if I lost them so going to buy a second pair just in case. I just can’t remember what size I ordered the first time around as the label has vanished (or I cut it out maybe)

    Galibier, once again, how do you manage to produce such great quality kit at such competitive prices? These gloves just dwarf anything I’ve worn before, from Specialized, Endura and Castelli. The palms are thin and snug, the backs stretchy and breathable. They’re not easy to get off, but that’s fine because I wanted a snug fit. If you want padding, these aren’t for you but if you want quality, featherweight, fitting and understated gloves that look like they’ll last a long time, then you won’t go wrong. I’m impressed.

    Bought these and wore them for the first time in the 100 CFC Sportive at the weekend, good temperature control and grip with little movement of the glove. Personally I’d prefer a little more padding as they literally have a thin layer of layer (as per the accurate description which states ‘minimal padding’) as the comfort did diminish slightly after 5 hours. Usual Galibier quality and speed of service – can’t fault. Probably not your ideal mitt if like me you prefer a little more comfort though.
