Introducing the SPECIALISSIMA mitt, designed with summer cycling in mind. At a mere 18 grams per pair (size M), these mitts prioritize lightness without compromising on hand protection.

The palm, crafted from water-resistant vegan suede, ensures a firm grip on the handlebars while maintaining a soft touch against your skin. For the back of the mitt, we’ve chosen a breathable Invista® Lycra in a pristine snow-white. It boasts impressive stretch and minimized seams, providing utmost comfort, irrespective of your grip on the handlebar. The pre-shaped thumb panel enhances articulation, and a double layer of fabric extends for wrist protection, mitigating irritation.

For those selecting the Orange and Teal options, the back of the mitt showcases a design inspired by the ancient kerbstone engravings at Newgrange and Knowth, crafted in Invista® Lycra.

Functionality extends with ergonomically stitched contact points on the palm, accompanied by a vented centre area. Machine washability ensures durability, and a word of advice: in the event of a rear-wheel puncture, kindly store these mitts in your jersey pocket until you can cleanse any oil residue.

Available Colors: Orange, White, and Teal. The deep teal shade harmoniously pairs with our GT Sentinel jersey and the women’s Sentinel.


  • Biomapped padding on palm for optimal nerve protection.
  • Composition: Lycra Invista® 75% / Polyester 25%.
  • Pull-on design.
  • Superior Lycra back for enhanced stretch.
  • Weighing only 18 grams per pair.

Sizing Advice: For the best fit, mitts should be snug. A loose mitt can shift and cause abrasion. Measure around your knuckles and refer to our size chart for guidance. When removing, pull off one finger at a time.

    Lovely minimalist glove, comfortable and well ventilated on a hot British ride, I sized down from what size guide suggested and this achieved a good fit!

    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.

  7. Ryan Watkins

    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.

  9. Eric (verified owner)

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

  10. jason (verified owner)

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

    love love love

  12. Jordan (verified owner)

    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!!!
