The Morvélo label was the creation of Oli and Dave, graphic designers with a passion for cycling.
The very name of the Typographical Hoodie gives away their dual obsessions. 'Bodini', the classical font designed in the eighteenth century, by Giambattista Bodini may not be an obvious choice to adorn cycling gear, but we think its elegance and clarity works nicely on the relaxed Hoodie. The precision of the font might prompt you to look out for the top's thoughtful technical details, such as full-length hiden zip, the heat sealed neck label, or the soft lightweight brushed back lining both designed for durability and your comfort.
Designed for off-bike wear, the Hoodie isn't without little on-bike details, just in case. If you feel like a quick ride, there's even a reflective print on the back.
Morvelo Size Guide
Note: Morvelo's sizing is pretty 'realistic' if you are used to UK sizing. Bear in mind, however, that the cut is deliberately fairly snug and fitted to keep you aerodynamic and unflappy on your ride!

Oli Pepper and Dave Marcar are bike nuts to the core. They've spent most of their lives riding and racing all kinds of bikes, plus nearly as long in the worlds of graphic design and branding. In 2008, they decided to combine their passions and expertise and created Morvelo - to encompass cycling 'in all its forms'.
Since then, from their Brighton base, the firm has grown through private financing from their friends and customers - often one and the same! They are proud never to have needed to open things up to big investors, meaning they've been able to grow steadily and to create exactly the designs that they are passionate about.
Today they are amongst the rising stars of the British cycling sector. Morvelo remain independently owned and proudly British, so able to put their own distinctive mark on their ever expanding range of stunning cycling gear. They explore themes that combine cycling with wider influences from art, fashion, film and music. And they do it with real individuality and class. Their women's range is growing fast, and they have 'real' women as part of their team both to design and test all their products. Just some of the reasons why we like them so much!
