Cycling Weekly Verdict

De Marchi’s Revo Gloves incorporate high-density padding from well-known chamois manufacturer, Elastic Interface, for a well cushioned ride. The placement of the padding around the thumb was a little bulky for my liking, but I couldn’t fault the impact protection. The gripping surface is similarly innovative, resembling the woven leg grippers of Castelli’s Premio bib shorts that launched earlier this year. It worked very well on bar tape with a foam finish, as well as those that are already tacky, but did struggle on glossy, shiny tape.

De Marchi’s Revo Gloves certainly stand at the more premium end of the market, but then they do incorporate some pretty new and interesting tech. The padding comes courtesy of Elastic Interface – an Italian brand with a reputation for quality chamois – while the palm’s grippers resemble the leg grippers of Castelli’s recently released and tech-packed Premio short.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
