The Castelli Roubaix W Gel is a women's glove named after the Paris Roubaix cycling race. Just as that race distinguishes itself, so does this glove. The Roubaix W is really made for the heavier terrains with poor road surface where you want some extra comfort. This is ensured by the special gel padding, offering more comfort and a pleasant bike ride. The mesh on the back of the hand ensures heat can quickly disappear. The synthetic palm is perforated for extra breathability. This way you won't get sweaty hands.
