Rapha - Overmitts
Inspired by glove designs used by deep-sea divers and mountaineers, the lobster claw-shaped Rapha Overmitts are a great final touch over the top of an effective pair of thermal gloves. Keeping your fingers next to each other promote greater hand warmth, and the three-ply fabric that holds them together here is simply exceptional: insulating against the very coldest temperatures, fully waterproof yet breathable enough to deal with sweat when the intensity starts to ride.
While warmth and protection come top of the agenda here, the practicality and performance of these overmitts get the job done surprisingly well. Reinforced prints in the palm and on the fingers allow high levels of grip at the handlebar and control, and there’s plenty of dexterity in there to boot. The material sitting over the index and middle fingers can be folded back, leaving you free to search pockets and use your phone, while the AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper uses a textured puller for ease of use. Reflective details round everything out to ensure you’re safe and seen in low light.
MANUFACTURER’S NOTE : The Overmitts are are not designed to be worn on their own in cold conditions.
