We always heard that the Cheetah is the fastest animal on land (or one of.... don't quote us... we didn't do science class that good). However, it seems that every time we turn on animal planet, the cheetahs on the screen are just sitting in a prairie taking a nap. The thing is... that's life. Sometimes it's 100mph and sometimes, you have to take a nap with BBC's Planet Earth on, blaring in the background.
We designed this glove with one of our Signature athletes, Ryan Standish. This is the same man that rode a world Cup event in HANDUP Jorts. In honesty, he's the embodiment of riding Fast and being chill.
The icing on the cake is that these are another Glove that Gives!! This is a program in which a portion of a particular glove's sales will give back to an organization that we think is making a positive difference in the world (often on two wheels). Ryan and the team here at HANDUP decided that it would be best to support BIKE MS!
Here is a little about BIKE MS straight from the source:
Bike MS brings us together to change the world for everyone affected by MS. It’s an experience driven by passion, camaraderie and desire to make a difference. From volunteers who help you refuel at rest stops to cyclists encouraging you on the route, we’re all in this together.
The Bike MS community has raised more money than any other cycling event for any other cause. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, and donors have raised more than $1.4 billion to stop MS in its tracks, restore what's been lost, and end MS forever.
