Classic Leather Gloves

Sold Out



Inspired by the glory of cycling’s golden age with a combination of timeless style and performance-driven technology. Vertex Classic Leather Gloves are exquisitely handmade from the finest African hair sheep leather which provides the highest level of comfort and protection. In addition to being tactile sensitivity and exceptionally soft, the leather is treated with special water and perspiration resistant technology which permanently protects the leather fibres without blocking its natural breathability.


The gloves are built for offering bar feel and second-skin fit, integrated with road specific padding to provide shock absorption and excellent responsiveness. A built-in sweat wipe on the back of the thumb helps keep you focused.


"Since the first tryout, they felt like a second skin. You can tell Vertex's leather is prime quality since it coped with temperatures ranging from 0 to 35 degrees Celsius, dust, wind and intensive journeys under the sun for up to 10 hours during several days. After all this extreme use the leather seems to stay in good condition. Regarding comfort on the ride, they excel as well. Padding on the palm feels very soft even handling such a worn out bar tape as I did. All in all, I found the gloves extremely useful and stylish complement to riding no matter in which conditions or environment" - Luís de Sousa, 5000km India Tour Achiever.

About African Hair Sheep Leather

Hairsheep leather is acknowledged as the best leather for gloves. It is finer and less bulky than other leathers yet with high strength and natural elasticity. This top-grade leather is mainly sourced from Africa. The leather benefits from the softness of touch, suppleness, strength, and lasting comfort, which helps the gloves fit properly.



  • Main: African Hairsleep Leather
  • Thumb back: 50% Polyester 50% Cotton


Care Instruction

The leather we select for our gloves is designed to be easy to care for in most cases. Simply wash the gloves in lukewarm water with mild soap flakes (the best way is to wear the gloves as if washing your hands). Rinse with plenty of clear water, gently squeeze out any excess water, reshape the gloves and leave them to dry naturally.


Size Guide

Vertex's leather gloves are slim cut; the gloves should have a tight fit when bought as they will stretch. But if you would like your gloves to have a bit more room we would recommend you to buy one size bigger.
