New for 2020, the Signature Softshell combines our newly developed 3D glove patterning with a warm and supple fleece backed softshell fabric for excellent feel in a versatile cold weather glove. The abrasion resistant face with rubberized palm and fingers provides excellent longevity and bar feel, while the membrane and microfleece backing add wind/water resistance and warmth respectively. Great for shoulder seasons and cooler months, when the forecast calls for a chance of precipitation. The Signature Softshell is not as warm as our ZERO+ or Alpha, but strikes a balance between minimal bulk and versatile warmth.
Fabric: 73% Nylon / 27% Elastane + Polyester Membrane
Made in: Italy
Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

The size chart indicated size L would fit but I ordered XL to be safe. Still too small, so unfortunately had to return them.
I’ve had these gloves for a few weeks now, and used in everything from high 20’s and light rain/snow up to mid 50s and windy. The weight to warmth ratio of these gloves is crazy. They block wind fantastically and have no issue shrugging off light rain for a couple of hours. My typical route is uphill the way out, and downhill the way home. I definitely learned to moderate the effort climbing because these gloves are so surprisingly warm, i started to sweat before I knew it and need to change gloves before freezing in them.
Great set of gloves. I wore these in 30-35F weather on an overcast day with occasional wind. The glove keep your hands warm and block the wind very well, unlike their Rapha counterpart (classic gloves). They are light but effective allowing for great dexterity. The cuff is fantastic and does not impede getting your hand in or out. The only drawback is that they do run quite small (this seems to be a theme for the winter'20 collection). I am typically a size L but had to order a XL. For those with normal/narrow hands and longer fingers, these will work. Look elsewhere otherwise.
