Sportful is a family business dating back over 40 years and like a few other brands in the cycle industry can trace its lineage back to Skiing. Formed in 1972 Sportful had a solid reputation in the Skiing world and turned its attention to cycling in 1985, using their knowledge and experience in changeable conditions to develop their range of high performance cycle clothing. Sportful continue to draw inspiration from their roots and you can see the influence from the origins in the Italian Dolomites in their range, whether this simply be a name or through an idea that sprung to mind while out in the wilderness. Sportful’s range of versatile cycle clothing is designed to offer excellent performance, no matter what the elements throw at you. All of their clothing is designed to work with you, keeping the rider performing at their optimum whether it's a pair of Sportful bib shorts, waterproof jacket, pair of overshoes or gloves. They say the best products are those that go unnoticed, and this is the ethos Sportful aim for, developing clothing that works well in a wide range of conditions, so the rider can just focus on the job ahead; riding.
