THE STORY BEHIND VELOR
When you're reading this, you're probably interested in knowing who we are, what we do, and most importantly, why we do it. So, let's start with how it all began.
In January 2021, Velor was founded by brothers Florian and Mickael Jardin, along with Peter Roozemond, with the goal of minimizing the impact of cyclewear on the planet by creating truly circular cycling kits. Velor aims to inspire people by approaching the conventional cyclewear model differently and showing that you can achieve cool things.
Velor's inspiring journey took a leap forward when Tom Leezer and Frank Arendsen crossed paths with Velor after 7 months. They joined forces to take Velor to the next phase, and since then, a lot has happened. The first circular steps have been taken and Thousands of people have embraced Velor's mission, and they currently ride in Velor kits. How cool is that?!
