Shift Up Now and Sabelt America Introduce Limited-Time Signature Racing Gloves

April 25, 2024

In celebration of its four-year partnership with Shift Up Now, and the progress of Shift Up Now Athletes, Sabelt America has created limited-edition, signature pairs of racing gloves.

Based in Boca Raton, FL, Carello Group LLC is the sole importer and distributor of Sabelt, the global leader in development and manufacture of original equipment, and number one in safety since 1972. Sabelt America provides racewear, harnesses, seats and more for race car drivers.

Sales of the new signature Sabelt gloves will benefit the Shift Up Now Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit. In support of the foundation, Sabelt America will be donating 25 percent of every pair sold. In addition, everyone who purchases a pair of gloves will be entered to win a $250 Sabelt America gift card.

The Shift Up Now Foundation lives alongside the for-profit business, continuing to strive for gender equality for female athletes in motorsport. The foundation furthers the mission by accepting tax-deducible gifts, donations and grants.

The gloves will be available on the Sabelt America website for $395 and available for pre-order now.

“Our partnership over the past four years has been instrumental in driving positive change within the motorsport community, but we believe there’s more to celebrate than just the passage of time,” said Erik Krammer, owner of Sabelt America. “With the arrival of spring, a season synonymous with renewal and growth, we’re inspired to reflect on the strides made possible by supporting female athletes.

“This launch isn’t just about marketing another year of collaboration; it’s about recognizing the achievements and advancements made in fostering inclusivity and empowerment within motorsport. We aim to align ourselves with broader initiatives promoting gender equality and empowerment, emphasizing our commitment to driving change, both on and off the track.

“Looking ahead, we see this moment as a symbol of optimism for the future of female drivers, reaffirming our dedication to supporting their journey and advocating for their rightful place in the world of motorsport.”

Shift Up Now CEO Pippa Mann echoed Krammer’s excitement, stating, “Sabelt America was one of the first partners to join Shift Up Now, to help our Athletes with their race gear, and to support our Membership program back in 2020. I’m proud of how our partnership has grown, and of how many Shift Up Now Athletes are wearing Sabelt America race gear as part of our partnership.

“In 2024, being able to expand this collaboration between our two organizations to include Sabelt’s donation from these limited-edition gloves to the Foundation is very special to me. The funds donated will go towards our 2025 Grantee program, meaning Sabelt America is now stepping into a role beyond supplying our athletes with top of the line safety gear; they’re also partnering with us to help support talented female racers behind the wheel."
