The clouds are grey in every direction, and a snowy, rainy sleet has been pelting your shoulders and rolling off your helmet for your entire ride. Home is miles away, and your soaking wet gloves aren't doing much to stop your hands from stinging with cold in your drops. Sound familiar? Inspired by the hand-numbing March conditions during the past few years at San Remo, Castelli's Tempesta Gloves were made to keep your hands warm and dry on the days when no one in their right mind or the wrong gloves would actually head out on a ride.
Castelli's OutDry technology is the cornerstone of the gloves' construction, and it's been updated from last year's version to function as a single barrier against rain, snow, sleet, and whatever else is falling from the sky. The DWR membrane is bonded directly to the main nylon/elastane fabric to give you a single windproof, waterproof layer, which keeps the gloves stretchy and breathable. Castelli also includes a Dry Zone lining on the inside of the gloves to enhance their breathability and keep moisture moving away from your skin when you sweat.
When you're getting ready to head out on your ride, slip the gloves on using the neoprene cuffs they'll slide easily under your jacket sleeves and will help water stay away from your wrists when you're stretched out in the saddle. Whether you're pedaling along blustering seaside roads in Italy or your familiar local routes, the Tempesta Gloves are made to make sure no degree of bad weather keeps you out of the saddle.
