Overview: Handcrafted for those chilly rides, the Élysée glove is a testament to the art of glove-making. Each pair is meticulously hand-stitched from fine-grained leather that’s not only breathable and supple but also robust. Over time and rides, they contour to your hand’s unique shape, offering a snug, second-skin feel.

Design & Construction: For added endurance, key wear points feature double stitching. The interior boasts a moisture-wicking fleece lining that ensures your hands remain dry and toasty, while also being odour-resistant. The glove’s exterior showcases the hand-tanned leather that’s been chosen from the ‘first-cut’, ensuring both softness and durability. Additional protection is offered with an extra layer at the knuckle face and a specialized ‘D’ pad above the inner wrist to shield the ulnar nerve.

This season, we’ve made thoughtful updates: extending the cuff by 10mm, refining the finger length, introducing a breathable fleece for the inner lining, and adding a lycra insert to the gauntlet’s adjustment cutaway.

Key Features:

  • Palm: Enhanced with ulnar nerve gel protection and a double layer of leather at contact points.
  • Inner: 4-way stretch lining for moisture management.
  • Outer: Windproof Cabretta leather ensuring quality and protection.
  • Thermal Rating: Suitable for 2ºC to +12ºC.
  • Details: Hand debossed logo, dual brass cuff fasteners, and an eco-conscious choice— the leather we use is a sustainable by-product of the food, wool, and dairy industries.

Glove Care: Leather’s longevity is affected by sweat acidity. After intense rides, wash the gloves, especially if they’re saturated. Post washing, it’s recommended to apply glove balm to maintain their suppleness.

Size Guide: Our gloves, be it for winter or summer, adhere to standard sizing. Designed for a snug fit, if you prefer a looser feel, opt for a size larger. Measurements are based on hand circumference at the knuckles. For any queries on glove sizing, feel free to contact us at info@galibier.cc.

    Great value for the price as always. I measured 22cm and the large fit nice and snug. At the start they are a bit stiff but with wear and some glove balm they became more supple. I’m mainly using them off the bike as I like being able to throw my gloves in the washing machine after use. Fashion brands will easily charge more than 100 euros for this type of glove. For 44 they are a steal. Go get them if you’re looking for leather gloves for on or off the bike.

    Comfortable, luxury and beautiful. I’ve done two rides with these gloves, since they arrived 3 days ago. From 0 to 6 degrees. They perform very good.

    Never owned a pair of leather cycling gloves before but will never wear anything else now. Super comfortable and does the job in cold conditions. Worn down to -2/3 with wind chill for 3 hour ride and fingers only got chilly towards the end. Purchased some high quality leather balm to treat every couple of weeks and they seem to be getting softer and subtler. As always with Galibier the price for such a quality item is unbelievable. I would include advice on leather balm treeatment in description unless I missed it.

    My hands measured as 8 and a half inches so I ordered size large. When they arrived I thought holy crap they look waaay to big, upon trying them on they’re a perfect fit and really comfortable.amazing they look like a £100 set of gloves. Cheers Galibier family!

    Sheer Class ,they look stunning and feel great on .
    Tried them out today 0 degrees and my hands were warm but not sweaty.
    10 out of 10 …just buy a pair you won’t regret.

    My Oh My!! I am loving these!!! Fit, finish and quality is outstanding. Love the extra padding on key parts – should help prevent numbness. These look like they will mould and shape nicely to you hands after a few rides. Already tried them out walking the dog and they are great for gripping the retractable lead handle too; think I will be wearing these for more than just riding. Will get some ‘glove balm’ per the recommendation on Galibier.cc – want these to stay supple and last – any recommendations??

    Received a pair of these gloves for Christmas and just loved how they looked. Classy! I have now worn them for a number of commutes as well as longer rides. This morning took them out for a 2 hour gravel ride with temperature being -3 at the start and they still kept my hands warm without being toasty and clearly breathable as my hands didn’t sweat at all when the day warmed up. Just brilliant gloves with the usual Galibier value and attention to detail.

  8. Gravel Grinder Geear

    Is there such a thing as love at first sight? If so I may have succumbed. These gloves are gorgeous. Beautiful construction and quality, with super soft leather, and details such as the palm pad, finger ventilation and Galibier logo on the wrist adjustment strap.
    OK, I’ve not had a chance to ride with them yet – they arrived this morning after ordering just 2 days ago – but I really don’t anticipate issues given other reviews and the quality of previous Galibier products I have ordered.
    I may just have to wear them in bed tonight instead!
    Supplied in a smart musette bag and handwritten card; a nice touch.
    As expressed before I’m very impressed with both the quality and service from Galibier. Thanks and see you again soon.

    Hands down best gloves I own – pun intended. I wear these through all winter and most of spring. Think I’ve had them 2 seasons now and still going strong

  10. no1gpuss (verified owner)

    Simply excellent. First time out in horrible cold wet weather and they were excellent. My hands remained lovely and warm throughout the 3 hours ride.

  11. Simon (verified owner)

    I actually bought these to wear as a ‘non-cycling’ glove – was a bit dubious about leather gloves for winter riding. When I first put them on they seemed a little too snug and insulation seemed very light.

    Tried them on the bike and it all made sense. Stretched to my hands slightly over the first few rides and now fit….like a glove.

    Great quality leather, seams all neat and tidy. I’ve worn them from just over freezing to 10+ C on the road bike and commuter and they’ve been great. Warm enough without being sweaty. Somehow they seem completely windproof – all my other winter/windproof gloves still end up being cold on the seams (particularly on the fingers/thumb) but I either the position of the seams on these, the way they’re made means no wind chill.

    A truly lovely thing and unbeatable value.

    I’ve previously used the Barrier gloves, which are brilliant, but if anything a bit too warm for me. I ordered these back in November, late one afternoon, and they arrived the following day!!!brilliant delivery service as always from Galibier. Since receiving the gloves I’ve used them in temperatures ranging from early teens to -9˚c (last Thursday night pub run) and my hands have always been just like Goldilocks favourite porridge…”just right”I picked up some ski-glove treatment balm to keep the leather supple and they’ve now broken in nicely. If you always have cold hands then plumb for the barrier gloves, you won’t be disappointed. If, like me, you don’t like to run too hot then choose these, they truly are exceptional

    I’ve no idea how my wife could have known I would appreciate a pair of leather gloves let alone guess the correct size. You can therefore only imagine my delight when I opened up a pair of Élysée gloves on Christmas day.
    I set off on a ride yesterday morning with temps of 3degC at home before heading up to the hills where it was a good bit parkier with fresh puddles of ice on the roadsides & hail settled in the fields. The gloves stopped Jack Frost nipping at my fingers & I was warm 3hrs later.
    Prompt delivery as ever. Good work Galibier.

  14. Fabien Roth

    Beaux. Chauds. Très beaux. Indispensables!

  15. Tim Ranger

    I love these gloves, they are well made and of quality materials – I feel like Biggles doing up the straps! My wife bought me these as a present and she chose large which I thought might not fit. I need not have worried, they were a bit tight at first but after further use they fit perfectly. Around zero my fingers started cold and stayed cold until I had worked up a good sweat but at slightly higher temperatures they are great, keeping my hands warm but avoiding the sweatiness you get with some gloves of synthetic materials.

    Another great piece of kit from Galibier delivered in their own little musette.

  16. Mike (verified owner)

    Great gloves apart from sub zero temps, where tips of fingers did start feeling it. Would benefit from padding on both sides of the palm.
    Overall fantastic purchase.

  17. James (verified owner)

    Fantastic gloves, quality leather and beautifully made only surpassed by Galibier customer services. Courier /Royal Mail apparently lost my order a quick call to Galibier and another pair dispatched same day, Galibier advised me if original pair turned up not to return but to give to ‘deserving rider’.
    Chapeau Galibier !

  18. Philip

    Got out mountain biking tonight with my new Elysee gloves. About 0-2deg. Cold feet, cold head, cold face, warm hands. Super product, look great, very comfortable and really warm.

  19. Darren yarwood

    Great gloves, comfy, warm and quite easy to clean and balm

  20. Will Gibson

    My new favourite glove. The fit and feel is fantastic have worn them over the last two weeks in all kinds of weather cold rain wind etc would not have believed how good they are most important for me no sweaty hands in any conditions

  21. Andy

    Absolutely my new favourite thing, I adore these. I can’t believe this isn’t what we’ve always worn in the winter. The feel amazing on and look great, they kept me toasty warm in a 2degree winter spin. These really deserve to catch on.

  22. Jez King

    Outstanding glove and getting better every day. Used this morning at below freezing and performed without me noticing- so good. Padding fit on the mark and long gauntlet wraps over my gabba sleeve. Taking a star off as they took 3 days to arrive, not next day as promised.

  23. Aurélien Mercant

    Stratosphérique !

  24. Steve Thomas (steve66)

    These far exceeded what was expected. I owned Rapha’s leather town glove which were bought for my 40th but died in a crash. Was looking the same performance and style but was hesitant to pay over £100. After delivery last Friday and a weekend of two wet-ish rides; I have one question for galibier: Are these better? (YES)

  25. Francis45

    Did feel a bit like James Bond but really nice glove. Luxury feel and high class finish and warm!

    Will keep them good I promise-
