Our Story

 
 

How it all started

The business was kick started in 2009 when founder, Neil struggled to use his iPhone on a mountain in minus 20 degrees.

Having spent his whole life in sport from British Kart Champion through to Running, Triathlon, Ironman, Back Country Heli-Skiing and Cycling, Neil wanted to develop sports gloves that truly performed but which also firmly embraced mobile phone technology (or at least allowed the user to call, text or take a selfie whilst wearing them).

James Yeo joined Neil and product design, testing and development began. Six months later and the first eGlove for running was launched, followed by gloves for riding, skiing, golf - and just keeping your hands toasty warm.

 
Winning our first ‘Runners World’ gold award was a huge highlight for me. Voted for by dedicated runners who love wearing our gloves while they do their thing... that really makes it all worthwhile.
