The S.Rosso Corsa is Castelli's vision of a contemporary top of the line performance cycling glove. Castelli designers have used the finest materials and fabrics at their disposal in its creation. One interesting observation is that behind all of the technology and features, resides a classic glove design at the core of the S.Rosso glove. This glove is Castelli at their best and once again proves that no one does cycling gloves better.
When you first handle the S.Rosso Corsa glove, you notice just how thin and low volume it is. It was designed to be a second skin or a sheath to your hand. The glove itself is just designed to hold the padding onto you palm and in the process provide moisture management. The palm has four individual perforated gel inserts designed to dampen road vibration and give comfort, while not losing any dexterity or bar feel. The one large rear panel is constructed of Castelli's proprietary Diamond Micromesh fabric. This gives the glove plenty of required ventilation and excellent wicking ability for perspiration. The glove closure mechanism has a molded tab that is dead simple to use and adjust on the fly. The Magic Velcro has good grip, but is not to aggressive, making the glove easier to use and adjust.
The glove has anatomically cut panels, so the fit of the S.Rosso Corsa is snug but comfortable. Combine this superb fit with the lightweight and low profile fabrics and you get a glove that feels like an extension of your hand. If the S.Rosso Corsa is in your budget, you would be hard pressed to find a better glove currently on the market.
