I'm looking for a pair of summer mitts and would quite like a pair of all white leather gloves as my bike is all white with white bar tape.

Other than the Rapha Grand Tour gloves, which are exactly what I want, but about three times what I want to pay, does anyone have any recommendations? I'd really like them to be retro, leather with white palms.

    Was a guy at the local bike cafe that had some beautiful pure white rapha one's. Really smart but dread to think how much they were.

    Thanks everyone. I'll look at the Gore ones, the ones I'd seen had some black on the palm though.

    The Rapha gloves are £120.
  • I have the Giro LX mitts in Black leather and really rate them.
    They do them in white and can be had for around £35 if you shop around

    I've got some Specialized '74 gloves in white. Really pleased with them. Same fit and comfort as the fabric Specialized BG mitts but more breathable. They wash pretty well too. Cycle Surgery have them in stock.

    You can get a black version too, usually £5-10 cheaper.

    Never knew they did the '74 gloves in white, might have to snag a pair of them. I have the Spec ones in black, and the Gore leather in white. The Gore ones are more padded on the palm, but both makes are really decent gloves.
