The literal translation of the Lunga Glove is long glove. And when it comes to the light weight, long finger category, no one does it better than Castelli. With each passing season they offer a range of glove bettering the previous seasons offerings. The Lunga is slightly heavier than a short finger glove an designed for slightly cooler temps or those who want some added protection. Perfect for spring, early summer or morning rides before the sun has blossomed into full glory and off-road riding.
The Lunga's leather-like synthetic palm has thin but dense padding with some added surface texture. This provides both comfort and a sure grip. There's enough padding to offer comfort and protect your hands from vibration, but not too much so you do not lose a natural bar feel and steering input. Pads are placed far enough apart, so it allows you to grip and grab without binding. There is a small front side Velcro closure located on the lower front of the glove that is completely tucked out of the way. The back of the glove has one large panel of Lycra. This offers support through a proper fit. It also allows the glove to breathe keeping your hands nice and dry. A handy and quick drying microsuede brow wipe located on the thumb makes wiping sweat from your face an easy task.
