  1. Dinh Phuong HOANG

    Bonjour à toutes et à tous,
    reçu en cadeau lors de ma 1ère commande en taille XS (je fais plutôt S -> 4 étoiles au lieu de 5) mais comme il est extensible j’ai pû l’utiliser.
    Merci pour cette attention.
    Essayé à des températures de 10°C, c’est suffisant mais en dessous j’ai dû mettre des sous-gants en mérinos.
    Je suis en VAE pour le vélotaf (36 km aller-retour avec des dénivelés et beaucoup de faux plats dans la province de Liège en Belgique).
    Fin comme une seconde peau, pratique pour accéder aux poches, grip efficace grâce au silicone et surtout compatible avec les smartphones.
    Par contre j’ai utilisé les Roubaix comme sous gants avec un gant d’hiver lorsque la température était en dessous de 0°C, cela m’a bien protégé du froid (j’ai vite froid aux mains).
    Je continuerai mes prochains achats chez vous quand cela se présentera (ma garde robe de vélotaf est déjà complète).

    Fits like a glove. Like a second skin.
    Sizing is accurate. Sort fine material. Perfect for in between days when it’s too warm for full winter gloves, but too cool for mits.

  3. Geoff (verified owner)

    Looking for new Spring gloves and the write up sounded promising, the sizing chart was correct for me. I have used them on with and without cycle mits and in both cases were very comfortable. My hands remained comfortably warm without feeling sweaty.

  4. Bill Geake (verified owner)

    Just lovely. Have used these between 6 & 11 degrees so far; for me, they’re getting a bit warm at 11. The palms have no intrusive seams – hooray! – and appear to be a bit less windproof than the backs. This is perfect for a bit of cooling if needed, but never draughty. Size chart spot on.

  5. James (verified owner)

    I was looking mid-season gloves on the warmer side, as I suffer from cold fingers. I noted the good reviews but never before has a product met the hype. Extremely comfortable, they fit like a er…..hand in a glove, feel exceptonal quality, with a good grip, but most importantly for me, are toasty warm. Will be buying more. First experience of Galibier gear so will definitely be checking their other stuff out. Nice hand written message on a postcard inside parcel too.

  6. Barra O’Brien (verified owner)

    Brilliant gloves. These are far warmer than gloves this thin should be. I suffer from cold hands and have found these to be quite good in low single digits, I also use them as liners for a pair of ardennes gloves if it’s really cold. They work well even when wet.

  7. Lee (verified owner)

    I like a thinner glove to give me feel and these have worked for me over the winter period. I have thick winter gloves but my hands are just too hot after a few miles. On some rides 2-3 degrees the start of the ride can see my finger tips a bit cold but once warmed up these are perfect for over 20-25 mile rides, I have ridden with these in the rain and yes my hands got wet but not cold. So that being said, Galibier please create a thin waterproof version of these gloves!

  8. Enver (verified owner)

    A quality pair of gloves. They feel good on and are not bulky. Plenty of grip on the bars.
    The size chart is accurate. I measured up and was towards the upper end of the range for medium and a medium fits perfectly.
    The temperature guide is also accurate. I took them out for a first wear today. It was 3 degrees with a bitterly cold wind and they were just about ok. So at 5 degrees I am sure they will be toasty.
    My first purchase from Galibier but not my last.

  9. Rachey Cat (verified owner)

    I am one of those always hot people so I don’t like wearing gloves unless I really need them. I’ve been using these for a few weeks now and they’re really good. I like the fact that they’re thin so I can still feel my handlebars and the silicone is really good for grip. I use my bike to commute to work about 10 miles each way. I have a very heavy ladies Dutch style step through vintage bike and I load it up with heavy pannier bags etc so it ends up weighing well over 20kgs most days which means I get hot easily as lugging my bike up hill to my place of work is hard work. I can see that I wear less clothes than most other cyclists do in Nov’ and Dec’ in the UK as I’m a hot person even though I’m a petite, slim female. I am mentioning this so if you’re also a hot person, you’ll understand my review. I have cycled to work on 2-3 degree mornings and by the time I get 4 miles away from work I am usually down to a thin t-shirt and a very loosely knitted cotton jumper! When it’s 6+ degrees I am usually down to just a t-shirt. I wore these gloves yesterday, it was 0 degrees, foggy and very damp on my way home from work and this is the first time my hands have felt cold whilst wearing these gloves.. I work at Muswell Hill in North London, it’s a very elevated point in London so cycling home is down hill for the first 3-4 miles so my hands were cold going down the hill against the cold wind last night but by the time I got to flatter and more uphill parts of the ride I did start to warm up. My fingers hurt and were smarting and tingling due to cold for the beginning of the ride but soon warmed up when I started peddling rather than just rolling down a steep hill! I don’t think I’ll bother to upgrade to warmer gloves as I personally find these very good, even down to zero degrees but I think a lot of other less hot people will need to invest in something warmer.

  10. Ethan downey (verified owner)

    Been using these gloves the last 4-5 years, best spring/autumn glove on the market perfect for temperatures 4-15 degrees Celsius excellent for a glove with no bulk

  11. Locko73 (verified owner)

    The new 6 model is even better, hard to believe, than previous gloves. New palm design is even more grippy on the bars along with the ususl light weight, maximum warmth material. A perfect glove for me.

  12. JP

    Fantastic gloves for Spring and Autumn, have lasted over 3 years of regular use. Must buy!

  13. paulschneider87

    A cracking Christmas gift, couldn’t be happier. Great fit, toasty and warm. Work as a great “thick” glove liner. The extra grip on the palm is a real touch

  14. Mark Brady (verified owner)

    I love these gloves. Quality product that are excellent for Autumn riding. Fit is great and the addition of the grip bands makes them stick to the bars and hoods like glue. Really pleased that I bought these.

  15. Steve (verified owner)

    I bought these gloves six months ago and used them throughout the autumn and spring. Really comfortable and look great. My go to gloves whenever the weather isn’t warm.

  16. Simon

    First proper run in these today. Typical Scottish spring day, i.e cold around 5-7*C. I used a silk liner as suffer from cold hands, but certainly did the job. Interesting pattern, felt a bit like a Haitian houngan. I am yet to fault Galibier kit for quality or price. Slowly replacing my gear with it. Highly recommended. And the delivery times are spot on. Excellent.

  17. Vincent (verified owner)

    Perfect intermediate gloves for this period of the year when riding without gloves is too cold, but full winter gloves are way too hot.
    I recommend these for temps between 4-10C.
    They are supple, not bulky and really grippy. Cuffs are nice and long.

  18. nigeltownley909 (verified owner)

    Great product

  19. Simon Bailey (verified owner)

    Extremely impressed with these gloves.
    Grip – plenty, more than any other glove
    fit – perfect, sizing chart is spot on
    quality – excellent, well made and comfortable
    Performance – These are thin but it is deceptive. My first ride I thought I was going out in 7 degrees, but it actually dropped down to 2. These gloves just about held out on their own, but with some cheap inners on they were toasty. I wasn’t expecting this at all, excellent. On rides typically down to 5-6 degrees they are fine on their own, right up to chilled spring mornings. If you prefer a thinner style glove then go these.

    Thoroughly recommend the product, plus Galibier had them delivered to me in 2 days. I will buy more from this company, excellent service.

  20. Tadas (verified owner)

    Very nice gloves, wore them until negative temps. But I’d say they are best to like 3-5 Celcius. They have nice finish and after using them for like 3-4 months – I can say they are amazing.

  21. Graham (verified owner)

    These are super – worn for the first time on Saturday – temp 6 degrees to start with and absolutely fine – I suspect they’ll be good below that as well, seem to be very well made, not bulky at all, I was able to take things out of pockets easily, very comfy & they look great with the reflective stripes in particular standing out. As I say super, can’t fault then.

  22. matt.coxy (verified owner)

    I bought these to act as a winter glove (don’t like bulky gloves) and whilst clearly they won’t be as warm as the bulkier gloves Galibier offer – they did the job great this morning at 7 degrees. I’m sure it can go a bit lower still and I’ll be fine too. They look amazing (Tron!) and I hope the white reflective strips last a long time – really comfy to wear and doesn’t affect my ability to break / change gear at all.

  23. vsevka (verified owner)

    These are awesome, can’t recommend them enough for mid-season rides. Probably used them at down to 3-4C. No bulk, hands feel agile. I can even still get small things out of my pockets without taking them off. What more do you want?

  24. Ronan Johns (verified owner)

    I feel like I’m in the movie Tron when I put these on… Really love the design and fit of these gloves. I’m generally not a glove person as my hands get too hot quite quickly so these are perfect for me on a cold, crisp day. These gloves can also be used on smartphone screens which is brilliant!

  25. widgy10 (verified owner)

    Hands were warm and dry at 5C temperature wet conditions. Very comfortable. No bulk. Great grip. Great product.

  26. paul.loveridge (verified owner)

    I’m on my second pair of the amazing gloves after loosing the first, I’m amazed now as i was then at how durable they. I get very sweaty hands and these soak up that sweat and make them even more warmer. The only time I felt any chill was on a couple of short down hills. as Per other reviews they are good down to about 0 degree but no more. I think that be pushing the limits of the what the glove should be ding anyway, just another great product that goes beyond its boundaries. After that sort of temp your going to need the the wind barrier of the deep winter glove.

  27. tonci.erceg (verified owner)

    Left glove arrived with spoiled(incomplete) silicone line, nothing special actually, but a quality control sticker was placed just 5 cm away from it and when you advertise something as premium cycling apparel it just doesn’t seem right. However, I like these gloves, been using them for past two weeks and found them suitable for temperatures from 0 to 15 deg C. Free international mail took around two weeks to deliver the package.

  28. Txaber Dañobeitia (verified owner)

    Fantastic gloves!!
    I wear with 5 C degrees and they are warm and very comfortable.
    Great service from Galibier, they answer very fast if there is any problem.
    I will buy again

  29. Alessio C. (verified owner)

    Fin dal primo utilizzo li ho subito apprezzati!Tessuto morbido e quasi te li dimentichi di averli perfetti nel range di temperatura 10-20.
    Se in futuro ci sarà una versione per utilizzare il touch screen dello smartphone li acquisteró!

  30. Aidan Berry (verified owner)

    What a cracking pair of gloves these are. Had them three weeks now and used them a fair bit as I ride about 5 times a week.

    I have had no problem with the transition to gloves without padding and quite enjoyed these being comfortable and a good mid season glove.

    My only disappointment is that I’m now in the market for a new pair as I lost mine on the ferry when a strong wind blew them off the bench and straight into the river.

    New order coming.

  31. omarshallee (verified owner)

    One more to add to the positive reviews of these gloves. They might feel thin when you put them on at first but that is deceptive as the best compliment I can pay them is when you are out on the bike you simply forget you have them on, they are that comfortable and natural on your hands. Superb quality and value for Galibier as per usual.

  32. Dan (verified owner)

    Great gloves, received them free late last year after a stock error meant Galibier couldn’t send me my entire order – fantastic customer service as always, most companies wouldn’t go further than an apology email – if I’d known how much I’d use them, I wouldn’t have even blinked at paying full price. They’re perfect for pretty much all year round use, as long as it isn’t too wet. Have recommended them to plenty of people, and my younger brother has also got a pair for use during his early morning paper round as they’re thin enough to easily get the newspapers out of his bag.

  33. Fabien Roth

    Gants parfaits. Rien à ajouter de plus…

  34. Jason S (verified owner)

    These have become my favourite winter gloves. I’ve always struggled to keep fingers warm, usually my previously dislocated finger would loose feeling in the colder temps. These gloves seem to have fixed this issue. Toasty warm and nice comfy fit. Highly recommended bit of kit.

  35. Patrick (verified owner)

    These are my favourite gloves. I commute all year in a mostly wet climate. On wet days they can keep my hands warm but if the weather dries, it is not stuffy. Initially, I found the inside brushed fabric to be a bit not as grippy against my palm. This improves after a few washes and use. When the temperature approached freezing, I wore a thin full finger summer glove underneath. Nice and comfy warm with this combo. Having not heard or see Galibier here in Canada, it was a bit of a gamble for me on this first purchase last year. No regrets. These have held up well.

  36. Tom Hunt (verified owner)

    amazing gloves, quality is superb as usual – nice fit and feel on the bike, take the chill off nippy mornings and fast descents. Best of all they look like something off ‘Tron’ 🙂

  37. sandernieuwenhuis (verified owner)

    Great gloves! Rode with them from around 0 degrees upto 14 degrees. They feel really thin, but still kept my hands warm enough. And they look pretty cool as well.

  38. Jack Sullivan (verified owner)

    These gloves really are fantastic. After wearing them, every other glove just feels bulky or saggy. I have another pair of thicker gloves for winter riding, but these are so versatile that I almost never need them. Good for me down to around 3 or 4 degrees C. Remarkably durable considering how thin the material is. My last pair took several years of daily abuse before I lost one, and I couldn’t re-order fast enough.

  39. Mary F

    It was 6 degrees this morning and these kept me warm and fit nice. It was 11 degrees at lunch and still were comfortable. Recommend

  40. Neil Griffiths

    Not for me unfortunately. Size medium was probably on the small size, but it’s what i usually go for. Don’t think they are particularly warm, work well in 10+ degrees. Main gripe in the seams running across fingertips and quite an annoying gap around the cuff.

  41. GordonM (verified owner)

    I ride with bare hands during the Summer. In my opinion, these gloves have no unnecessary padding and are perfect for keeping your hands comfortably warm in chillier Autumn conditions. They are a snug fit but that said the size table is accurate. They also look great!

  42. Sam (verified owner)

    These are really cool. Adding on to what other people have said in their reviews, they really do fit close to the hand so you can probably use them as a liner glove if it does get too cold to use them on their own, though they are warm in their own right. The grip detail is really tacky and nice, and the cuffs are a great length. There are seams that you can feel inside of the glove, but they aren’t anywhere that could cause chafing so they’re really comfortable. Molto buono :-]

  43. Dave (verified owner)

    These gloves fit kinda tight, but not too much. They feel great. They’re thin enough to let you feel things but thick enough to keep the wind and chill off. The grlppy parts are really well-placed. They’ve been fine even for warmer weather. They also look really cool.

  44. Michael Peel (verified owner)

    I purchased these gloves after reading many rave reviews, as I was looking for something inbetween my fingerless summer gloves and bulky winter gloves. These fit the bill perfectly for those chilly autumn and spring rides. There is plenty of grip from the white detailing that runs down the two fingers and thumb, enabling you to shift and brake with confidence in damp conditions. They have been in constant use for the past three months, being washed after every use and still look good as new. I was skeptical of the lack of padding on the palm sections, but they are actually really comfortable, even on 50 mile plus rides. I’ll be buying a second pair, because why wouldn’t you at this price?

    A brilliant pair of gloves for everyday use in spring and autumn.

  45. Charles (verified owner)

    I recently received these and tried them out today for a first ‘proper’ ride. They performed very well. They weren’t too thick so as to be cumbersome but were warm enough (in 10 degrees) without resulting in sweaty hands. The white grippy bits actually look quite smart and are very bright, so your really feel as if your hands are visible to other road users when you signal.
    The icing on the cake is that the white grippy sections work with an iPhone screen (I use Cyclemeter). You can’t do precision typing, but they’re good enough for a swipe and a prod to get to the right screen.
    Very happy with the gloves and very happy with the service.

  46. from Washington, PNW (verified owner)

    These gloves are amazing,
    they feel ‘real’ on the bars, you’ll never miss the shift, etc.
    The white part (only) is grippy beyond expectations, even on wet handlebars.
    They fit well, are comfortable and it’s easy to forget about your hands and focus on the road.

    Riding at about 35*F – 50*F & Dry/Raining these gloves needed hand warmers to keep the backs of your hands from freezing off. 4/5 because I couldn’t even imagine wearing these if I lived in canada/alaska etc. They just would not hold up.

    Keep that in mind and these are sweet, sweet gloves.

  47. freddy

    Really great pair of gloves, thin yet warm, quality of manufacture very high (stitching looks good). Impressed with fit also.

  48. Chris (verified owner)

    Great gloves at typical Galibier good value pricing. Light, pull on with no fiddly Velcro. Not for the coldest weather as quite thin but surprisingly warm nontheless. Great feel and grippy.

  49. Philip

    Great glove. I used them in February and they were a little cold early in the morning (0-2 deg) but by late morning (4 deg) they were perfect. The location of the rubber strips on the index and middle finger is perfect for braking and shifting. The thin fabric allows plenty of feel for the controls and looks good to.

  50. Kurt (verified owner)

    Just got mine, quickly delivered used them and wow its what I hoped from the description. Its like the roubaix winter tights feel on your hands, so feels warm and less restrictive than other gloves but could if needed combine as another glove layer as they are so thin. The white gripper is very grippy. I think if needed on a winter TT they will be brilliant for Di2 controls.

  51. Will (verified owner)

    Not bulky, super soft and great looking gloves. They are perfect to take the chill off down to about 5 degrees for me. Well worth twice the price.

  52. Beech (verified owner)

    As previously said, they’ll only keep your hands warm to a certain low (4 or 5 degrees for me), but they’re grippy, stylish, super comfy and just about the perfect glove for when fingerless is not an option. It’s gonna have to be freezing for the bulky dual layered to come out this winter.

  53. Olly (verified owner)

    Great price, great fit. For me they’re good down to about 7 or 8 degrees, but I feel the cold in my hands.

  54. Andrew (verified owner)

    Spot on if, like me, you’re not a big fan of bulky gloves on colder rides. Well priced too.
