THE KINDHUMAN GLOVE STORY
Since their inception, our leather gloves have been one of our best-selling items. They’ve been featured and well-reviewed in the VeloNews Gift Guide, CyclingTips as well as countless blogs and cycling publications. Needless to say, we’ve created a winning product. The gloves have seen three phases of development and in each stage they’ve improved in fit, quality and performance. In keeping with our mission to always Do What’s Right For Riders - we’ve now added a Vegan-Friendly synthetic option along with our ethically produced, fan-favorite Genuine Leather.
WHY TWO OPTIONS?
In August of 2015, Matt Wikstrom of CyclingTips.com reviewed our gloves. After testing them, he said, “KindHuman has captured the simple, classic styling of a traditional racing glove with this offering. These gloves are very easy to wear...the feel and fragrance of the natural material makes for a distinctive riding experience.”
It was a fantastic review, but some readers took issue with the use of animal hide - and rightfully so! We needed to take a deeper look at the products that we were offering.
WHAT WE DID
While we know our genuine leather is ethically produced from a small farm family where the materials are quite literally produced farm-to-sewing-table - we understand that some riders want a different option. We have a saying that we often use when it comes to product design, that saying is Why Change, When You Can Choose? Following in that theme, we spent months not only improving the fit and quality of our Genuine Leather Glove - but the very day the CyclingTips article was published - we worked with our manufacturer to source a Vegan-Friendly synthetic material. Within days we were developing and testing the brand new, Vegan-Friendly Glove.
We hope this shows that we listen to our riders in an effort to continue to design products you want and need. Now, the ball is in your court riders. What do you want to wear?
