VeloNews, November 2015: Reviewed: Brancale Winter Cycling Gloves

by Caley Fretz

"Brancale calls the color Cognac, a rich brown that has only improved with a year's use. I like it. It recalls deep chairs, cold nights, a small glass of something good. My other cycling gloves don't do that." 

 

Bicycling Magazine, September 2015: Brancale Leather Cycling Gloves

by Bill Strickland

"...it's most striking product pays tribute to the brand's legacy in leather: short-finger and long-finger gloves...because leather acquires character as it ages, and absorbs the ravages of water, sweat, grease, and abrasion, devotees will happily pay more for a product that has not only a longer life than fabric versions, but also a more beautiful one."

CoolHunting.com, March 31, 2015: Brancale's Leather Cycling Gloves, The Italian heritage brand gets an American relauch with the same insistence on old world quality

by Hans Aschim

"We recently picked up a pair of Brancale's leather cycling gloves and were instantly impressed. Handmade from premium African hair sheep leather, the gloves have an ultra-soft, buttery feel. Moreover, the leather is naturally breathable and surprisingly tough-given its softness...While it's tempting to keep the gloves in pristine shape, they're even better once broken-in and will become a second skin after a couple long rides."
