These classic crocheted mitts form part of a special limited collection, made in honour of US champion and Olympic medallist, Nelson Vails, nicknamed The Cheetah.
Watch Nelson Vails racing the ‘84 Los Angeles Olympics and you’ll soon see why. Vails’ predatory power – bred in the concrete jungle of New York as a bike messenger, where he never failed to deliver – saw him scoop silver, resplendent in red, white and blue. This collection recalls Vails’ riding and racing roots, featuring the green and yellow of his first team.
A durable, comfortable and fast-drying pair of mitts with subtle special details. The velcro wrist closure features an embroidered Nelson Vails’ thunderbolt logo. The palm and trim is made using hard wearing and water resistant leather with perforations for ventilation, and has carefully positioned gel padding for comfort without excess bulk. The redesigned shape of the padding allows for unhindered articulation and prevents build up of pressure on longer rides.
