MIX & MATCH
Premetto che non li ho usati al di sotto degli 8 gradi ma sono veramente molto confortevoli, morbidi, ottima fattura e belli da usare anche per andare in giro, non solo in bicicletta. Li consiglio vivamente.
Keep warm but grey strip peels off
They keep warm but I wouldn't recommend them for temperatures below 5 Celsius. Unfortunately, the grey strip peels off after a few rides.
Could be better!
This glove is good above 7 Celsius and it is only water resistant in light rain/drizzle. I have used it extensively through winter and my hands were often cold so if you look for winter gloves that can withstand lower temperatures and rain this is not it. I found these gloves to be ideal/optimal in Autumn and Spring. The grip is only good on rubber grips and tape but not on bare metal like aerobars. In fact, on the aerobars it is quite slippery and that was disappointing and frankly dangerous. Again, if you are using aerobars without tape or else be aware of it. Mine also had stitching problems and started to fall apart within months so quality wise I was also not extremely happy. The feature I liked the most is its lightness, the way it feels and the fact that I could use the mobile phone without having to remove the glove. The reflective strip is a total waste in my opinion as when I signal my intention to turn you can barely see the reflective strip. Maybe a better design could help improving visibility. Not a very technical glove in my personal opinion, expensive for what it offers and let’s be honest let down by the quality. Would I buy it again? Only in sale at 50% discount.
Warm, thin glove
Warm glove (between 6-11 degrees) and thin enough to feel your Di2 shifters.
Downside of the thickness is that there is not a padding in the handpalm. Grip is good and fit is very comfortable. All in all I recommend this glove to everybody.
Sie haben den Kalten Wind bei 7-9 Grad perfekt abgehalten. Die Nähte stören nicht bei den der typischen Rennradhaltung am Lenker. Bin begeistert ????
Super quality, perfect for cycling.
Santini quality was like the products ordered so far.
comodi e funzionali
Good for spring/fall
They are good piece of equipment for cooler days, however only down to 4-5 C when it's colder you should find something warmer. Well designed, but reflective parts are not very durable.
Anyway worth considering and buying.
Ho usato gìa i guanti a 3.400 metri, in Bogota, Colombia, con molto freddo. Risultato: eccellente!
devo dire per sincerità che ho sempre usato Castelli, ma questa volta mi ricredo i guanti santini acquazero sono eccellenti!
Very good gloves...
These are my first cycling winter gloves from Santini, and I like them a lot:
The fit is very good! I choose my size with the help of the Santini sizing chart, and the gloves fit... just perfect. Exactly true to size! (My hand circumference is 20,2 cm --> Size L).
Contrary to gloves from other brands I owned so far, the fingers have just the right length (not too short) and the part between the fingers is also at the right place (no chaffing).
The cuffs are long enough to leave no gap to your longsleeve or jacket.
A big Plus for your safety is the big reflective stripe around the fingers. First I wondered about the position, but when riding with a few people in the dawn with our headlights turned on, we found out that the Cyclist behind me could see the reflective material when I had my hands in the drops or on top. Super!

Ottimi, confortevoli e un bel design!!
I really like the reflective pattern on the inside of the fingers. Great for those winter rides where the sun goes down alittle earlier.
