Shutt Velo Rapide
Vegan Cycling Mitts
Designed for long distance comfort and durability, Shutt’s Endurance Mitts feature Lycra backs with a Velcro closure and double padded Clarino (simulated suede) palms.
When designing all our new kit we take input from our racing team and 4 of our 10 riders are vegans. And it was whilst investigating vegan friendly solutions that we discovered Clarino. What’s Clarino I hear you ask? Well simply, it’s the highest quality synthetic leather in the world.
Clarino fibres are thousands of times finer than silk, making it extremely tough - yet supple, dexterous, lightweight, breathable and comfortable to wear all day long. Unlike typical leather, Clarino is breathable and washable, and will not shrink, stretch or harden. Clarino repels wind, water, stains and mildew, and can be machine washed.
As a guide, a man’s size corresponds to his body size (Medium = Medium Mitts), whereas a woman’s pair will be one size smaller.
