The Castelli Perfetto RoS gloves form one part of the Italian brand's latest range of high-performance winter-tackling gear that integrates the best material technologies available. 

The Perfetto moniker translates to 'perfect' from the brand's home language of Italian, while RoS stands for Rain or Shine. It's a bold name to call a product range, but in my mind, Castelli has every right as these are the best winter cycling gloves I've ever used.
