Based in Southampton, vintvélo was founded in 2015 by owner Greg Vint. A self-confessed cycling-obsessive he can usually be found on a bike of some description – often thinking up new ideas for the range. Plus since starting the business he has learnt how to use a sewing machine and now makes all of the handmade cycling musettes!
New products for 2017
1.” Contre La Montre” bamboo T-shirt
This design takes its inspiration from the road racing discipline of time trialling. Commonly known as the ‘race of truth’ and considered by many as the purest form of racing. It’s just you, the bike and a race against the clock (transl. French ‘contre la montre’).
Not only is bamboo fabric extremely soft and comfortable to wear, it is also warm, highly breathable, moisture-wicking, and anti-bacterial.
2. “Le Cycliste” organic T-shirt
The ‘Le Cycliste’ is a vintage inspired design. Featuring a traditional casquette, flying goggles and curled moustache, so typifying the look of cyclists from days gone by.
As well as being produced from 100% organic cotton, this T-shirt has been manufactured solely using renewable green energy from wind and solar power. This slim fitting T-shirt is available in grey with a black print.
3. “Button It” Musettes
This new edition is a stylish and practical bag for cyclists, its style is similar to that of a traditional cycling musette bag, as long-used by pro-cyclists as food bags. However, this bag is handmade from heavier and stronger poly- cotton material, meaning it will last everyday use both on and off the bike.
4. “Fixie Bike” Musettes
This bag features a panel of neon-coloured fixie bike fabric. With a choice of colours for the bag’s strap, depicting the different coloured bikes.
It’s Greg’s birthday during Spin Cycling Festival, so to celebrate it’s 10% off everything all weekend!!
