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 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. Neil decided to leave eGlove in 2015 to pursue other interests (although he still keeps close to the business!) and James was joined by his Ultra Runner wife, Nikki.
eGlove produce award winning, mobile phone friendly gloves for horse riding, cycling & running. Our gloves have been specifically developed with superior, hi tech fabrics & designs to maximise movement & grip. Our riding gloves come in a rainbow of colours for all your “matchy-matchy” needs and a range of weights to suit all purposes – hacking, eventing, show jumping, or dressage! They allow full movement, keep your hands warm and dry, are super grippy and secure on the reins. All while allowing you to call, text or take photos!
We’re a small business with big ideas. Since we started eGlove we’ve made sure we’ve chosen manufacturers with fairly paid employees and ethically sound working conditions and we make sure the eGlove team aims for a positive work/life balance. We use recycled or recyclable materials in our packaging and stationery and are always on the lookout for ways to run the business more sustainably. We support local charities through running and sponsorship and we provide support to some wonderful local sports people who are just starting their professional journeys. Our friendly team is on hand to answer any questions or order enquiries that you might have – so just get in touch and we’ll do our very best to help.
We can’t wait to meet you all at The National Equine Show
