The Castelli Team Sky Roubaix Glove is a lightly padded glove that still has great feel. Its a pull on off designed and features the SKY logo on both the palm and on the back of the hand.
The 2017 design brings a sort of British-Italian fusion. Designed by Richard Pearce, the graphic celebrates the victories in Team Sky’s first 7 seasons. The classic Breton shirt served as inspiration but has been reimagined in a data pattern with each stripe on the Castelli Team Sky Roubaix Glove representing a specific Team Sky victory.
The short dashes represent one-day races, while the medium-length lines represent multiday stage races, with the number of stages determining the length of the line. WorldTour races are blue lines, while non-WorldTour races are white. Perhaps most significantly, the gaps represent the ambition for future victories.
