This product is featured in: Winter cycling gloves grouptest.

There were a few design ideas and panel shapes that made us initially cautious of these Xtreme Breeze gloves but it made us realise Santini hadn’t just copied someone else.

In reality it is the fabric that makes these apparently simple gloves shine.

Overall, they are thin compared to many Baltic-condition gloves but the triple layer fabric combines warmth and weatherproofing with minimal bulk while retaining an incredible stretch.

Verdict

Thin and super-stretchy, these gloves allow you to maintain heat in sub-zero conditions, without losing the ability to brake or shift. Is that worth over £50 to you? It is to us – these are brilliant gloves

    Colin, they do a tubeless and regular model.

    I bought a pair of these at the start of the year to replace a pair of Ksyrium Elites.
    The first thing I noticed was how silky smooth the ride was, buttery in fact.
    After plugging in a pair of Planet X titanium skewers I also was well able to notice the drop in mass. These wheels spin up really quickly and are a delight when the road starts going up.
    No adverse reactions in cross winds mean that they are dead stable even in comparison with the Mavics.
    They are QUIET too. No more sounding like I have a lolly stick flicking on the spokes when I freewheel ( I know , I should keep driving but hey, what is the freewheel for?)
    Another thing worthy of note is the rather neat computer magnet that fits almost invisibly onto a spoke. A lot more svelte than other designs.
    All in all well worth the £550 I paid at Planet X, but nothing in the blurb says anything about being tubeless…
