In the search for the lightest kit for the summer we designed the simple and stylish SPECIALISSIMA mitt.

At only 18grams a pair (M) this is essential hand protection.  The palm is made of water-resistant,  vegan Suede material, that provides grip on the handlebars and remains soft next to the skin.  On the back of the hand, we chose a snow-white Invista® Lycra. This is a breathable fabric with excellent mechanical stretch and minimised the amount of seams for comfort in any position on the handlebar. The thumb panel is pre-shaped for improved articulation while the padding is provided by double layer of fabric which is extended to provide wrist protection and reduces irritation.

Machine washable and durable.  The palm has a contact points stitched to match drop bar ergonomics and vented centre area.

If you get a rear wheel puncture, these must be removed and stored in your jersey pocket until you can wash the oil off your hands. #protectthewhite







  • Biomapped padding on palm, FULL nerve protection
  • Back: Lycra Invista® 75%/ 25%Polyester
  • Lightweight pull on cycle mitts.
  • Lycra back for superior stretch.
  • 18grams a pair





Like all good mitts, they should be neat fitting, a loose glove will move around and cause abrasion.  Measure right around your knuckle and compare to chart below. A good fitting mitt should be pulled off one finger at a time.

    Firstly, I’m a fully paid-up Galibier fan. Their kit is great value for money, and very well made. They’re currently my go-to for new kit. IN particular their gloves – which I now have 5 pairs of (deep winter gloves, ardenne gloves, roubaix gloves, 2x summer mitts etc).

    Sadly, I can’t recommend these particular gloves. First ordered ‘M’ which is consistent with all others that I’ve bought, but they were far too baggy. So sent back and ordered the ‘S’ and whilst the fit across the palm is now good, they’re too short so with my hands on the hoods of the brakes, it pulls the glove down onto where the fingers join to my palm and the material cuts in feeling like someone trying to cut my fingers apart with a knife. My only solution will be to take a pair of scissors to them and remove the offending material. Shame because otherwise they’re fab.

    Ordered 2 days ago and arrived this morning, fantastic delivery time with a personalised note Inside.
    I prefer this style of gloves as I find them more comfortable (nothing to do with being aero, I just like them) and these fitted the bill perfectly. Great delivery, great price and great gloves.

    Great aero gloves. Quality item for our youth race team. Fit well, comfortable, match the kit. They love them! https://albarosacc.com/youthraceteamreview/

    Great gloves and a brilliant price for something so aero. They are tight fitting as expected but that also helps with the aero nature as you don’t want excess material flapping about. Quality and materials are both exceptionally good, and the breathable areas on the palms really help to make them more comfortable on hotter rides and races. I use them for races.
    Delivered very quickly with great customer service as always.

    These gloves have an excellent fit & feel. Just enough padding in the palm area for comfort. Reecommended.

    Brilliant gloves, I use them for racing and time trialling and they are so comfortable yet tight and aero. Would highly recommend these gloves to anyone, I love these gloves!

    If you want aero these are the most comfortable you’ll find. Surprisingly warm in chilly weather.

    I think that to want to adjust too much these gloves, they end up cutting small. Take a size above your usual size !

    These gloves fit nice and snugly, and are very comfortable, can’t rate these highly enough.

    The gloves are fantastic, probably the best I’ve tried on. The padding is superb and they feel like you could ride all day without sore hands never mind a short TT which is really what I brought them for, and their aero qualities. The quick delivery was a bonus, great item!!!
