    Sportful Size Guide

    Sportful is an Italian brand, and is designed with the emphasis on figure hugging, aerodynamic products. Depending on how you like your cycling clothes to fit, we'd suggest that if you're unsure between two sizes or prefer a slightly more relaxed fit you should err towards the larger of two sizes. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.

      Note: the inside leg measurement is naturally less relevant for shorts and tops than for tights! 

       

      Arm, Leg & Knee Warmers

      For reasons best known to themselves, Sportful don't give specific measurements for their warmers.

      However, we have it on good authority that if you go with your Sportful jersey size for arm warmers, and your Sportful shorts/tights size for leg and knee warmers, you're likely to get it right.

          Headwear

          Sportful headwear, including caps, skullcaps, headbands and neck warmers, is one size fits all.

          Olindo & Irma Cremonese moved to the foothills of the Dolomites in 1946 to build a clothing business. Initially, they sheared and spun wool yarn themselves - by hand.  Eventually the business evolved into producing high quality underwear in the late 1960s.

          But Sportful’s story really began in 1972 when their son, Giordano Cremonese, became intrigued by the challenges of cross-country skiing, which was happening all around their area. Giordano was already a keen cross country skier and athlete, but felt that the clothes available at the time weren't up to scratch for longer races in cold conditions.

          So he began producing his own designs using acrylic fabrics that were state of the art at the time -and put a ‘Sportful’ logo on them to highlight their design and purpose.

          On a cold January morning in Val di Fiemme, Giordano lined up with the hundreds of other skiers and took on a tough course in an eye-catching bright orange suit designed to keep him warm and comfortable for 70km of racing.

          The compliments flowed, and he quickly realised that there was demand for quality clothing designed specifically for a tough sport. By 1973 Sportful was handling orders from across the Dolomites for his unique specialist cross-country clothing.

          In 1985, Sportful followed Dr. Cremonese’s other sporting passion and began to develop cycling clothing, using their experience gathered over many years in harsh conditions.

          Within a few years, Sportful was being used by the great Mapei team and even the Italian National team - who won 6 World Championships and 1 Olympic title in Sportful.

          Today, the business remains a family one: Giordano's own children, Alberto, Alessio, Dario & Gioia, have all played important roles within the business since 1995. Some of the staff have been part of Sportful for over 40 years and the business is still in the same valley as it started, back in 1946.

          They remain passionate about the mountains around them, and many of their products are inspired by - and named after - local parts of the Dolomites.

          They continue to supply some of the biggest names in cycling (and cross country skiing!). We love their authenticity, commitment to quality and innovation, and their firmly family-orientated philosophy, and we're delighted to have Sportful as part of the VeloVixen family.

          We aim to dispatch all orders within 2-3 working days, often sooner. Within the UK we use Royal Mail's Tracked 48 service - you will receive a tracking code with your order.

          Next Day Delivery (guaranteed by 12pm with Royal Mail) is available on some products when ordered before 1pm. This option will be shown next to the specific product when available.

          If your particular size is not shown, feel free to contact us by email at contact@velovixen.com. Please note some deliveries may take longer if we need to order a product in.
