Whether your daily commute carries you by bicycle, car or train, Rapha's Leather Town Gloves have your digits covered. Made by hand with leather from the African hair sheep—an animal native to the savannah of Eastern Africa and known for its thin but strong skin—these luxe gloves are intelligently designed to blend in on and off your bicycle, something we've come to expect and love about all Rapha products.

The palm of the glove is reinforced with military-grade padding to absorb shock and improve control on rough roads. On the inside you'll find moisture wicking lining to keep hands dry, warm and odor-free. The glove's thin leather makes them extremely durable and will only become more comfortable over time.

To top off the clean design, a single snap strap keeps everything snug at the wrist. While it looks like Rapha's dark brown option is currently sold out, black and tan are in stock and ready for the rapidly approaching cold cycling season. Gloves sell for $195 a pair. For more information on the Leather Town Glove and other multi-purpose goods visit Rapha online.
