Established in 2009 during a ride in the Yorkshire Dales between two avid cyclists, Shutt Velo Rapide began with a simple mission: to create a well-designed, high quality brand of cycling garments using performance fabrics that don’t cost a fortune.
Everyone at Shutt VR is still as passionate about our mission today as we were back then.
Based in Oxfordshire, we are a small and personable business staying true to our core values, fusing authentic British craftsmanship with clever technical solutions to bring customers back time and again.
By sourcing our materials where possible in the UK and manufacturing locally in Leicestershire, we not only source the best quality fabrics and components, we also have the unique privilege of being involved in every aspect of the production process.
Shutt VR is synonymous with authentic craftsmanship and technical superiority which has resulted in a creation of a mixture of cycling wear from sporty to casual, feature-rich and produced in a variety of complementary colours. Because everyone at Shutt VR rides, we understand what it’s like to be out on the road. Whether in an urban or country landscape, we know that the hours spent on the bike have to be as comfortable as possible – it helps if you look good too!
We know that most people don’t fit the general mould of a competition cyclist. This is why we have designed our garments to fit the everyday rider – racing cut but not too tight, comfortable but still fitted. Our range really is tailored for the road and fits the needs of all cyclists – young, old, male or female, the average rider, sporting racer or out-and-out professional.
