The Prima Glove is a modern day version of the classic knit cycling glove. Improvements over the classic design include tighter weave pattern, longer cuff and textured thumb and index finger ends for swiping on a smartphone or iPod. Although this glove may not appear to be very technical in in its composition, it will serve you well in many varied conditions. It's another winner from Castelli and a staff favorite for a reason, it fits and functions well and is durable for daily use.
As you would imagine, Castelli are masters at apparel manufacturing. That being said, they know how to knit a glove and the Prima is proof of that. Coolmax fabric is mixed with some Elastane is woven into a tight matrix weave. Special attention was taken to get the yarn to run parallel with your arm. This makes for a smooth transition from glove to jersey and cuts down on bunching of material. This well-fitting glove offers the ultimate in natural bar feel and dexterity. We would recommend this glove for use in the 45-60° range.
