The latest additions to our Performance range are the Aero and Endurance Mitts. These are tested throughout the year by our race team.
One of the main criteria for the mitts was to find an alternative to leather which didn't compromise performance or longevity. For a small group we have a surprising number of vegetarians. This is when we discovered Clarino, the highest quality synthetic leather in the world.
Manufactured in Japan, Clarino fibres are thousands of times finer than silk, making for extremely tough, supple, lightweight, breathable and comfortable fabric to wear all day long. Unlike real leather Clarino is both breathable and washable; even better, it will not shrink, stretch or harden.
The Shutt mitts are really special; for the racer we’ve launched an aero cut, lightweight lycra pair with Clarino palm. For the sportive rider the Endurance mitt has an added a velcro closure, rubberised wrist tab to help pull up the mitt and extra padding for extra comfort on long rides.
Both mitts share a ventilated palm, reinforced finger loops to aid glove removal and an ultra soft fabric thumb for essential nose wiping!
