ThePearl Izumi Cyclone Gloves will work to keep your hands warm on all but the most frigid weather days. You can count on the effectiveness of these gloves from that first frosty morning in September until the final snow storm in April.
Pearl Izumi’s Elite Softshell upper provides amazing wind and water protection without stifling your hands. The thumbs are covered in a soft windproof fleece wiping surface so that you can keep your nose dry but won’t have the thumbs feeling colder and wetter than they should as a result of the snotty moisture. The fingers are anatomically cut which makes these gloves feel more like a second skin. The Clarino Synthetic leather which covers the palm is soft and extremely durable. Don’t worry about wiping the girt from your tires with these gloves; they’ll easily handle the friction. Perhaps their most impressive aspect is the Comfort Bridge Gel padding which has been included in the palms to relieve pressure on Ulnar and Median nerves for unsurpassed riding comfort.
To further the gloves utilitarian value, the finger tips come with screened-on silicon covering so that you will have even better grip with the gloves on than you do with bare fingers. The ubiquitous reflective elements have not been forgotten on this pair of gloves and an unobtrusive Velcro closure has been inserted at the wrist so that you can keep them as loose or as tight as you like. The Pearl Izumi Cyclone Gloves come in Black and in sizes Small through XX-Large.
Elite softshell material on the hands keeps wind and water at bay
Windproof fleece wiping surface on the thumbs keeps your nose clean
Gauntlets cover that little strip of skin below your jersey that gets unbelievably cold
Silicone screening on fingertips for dexterity in all conditions
Measure around your hand at the widest point excluding the thumb.

Ordered the gloves and fit was nice. Gloves kept my hand warm on their first use in 40 degree temps, but then I noticed a breeze on one of my fingers. The thread on the tip of one finger unravelled exposing the tip of my finger. I had plenty of room so I know it wasnt pressure from my finger that caused it just poor sewing. Item returned. If I didn't have an issue would have rated these 4 stars
One review says 19 degrees was perfect for these gloves, others say they are only for 60 degree weather. It all depends on your perception of cold. I dont even wear gloves in 60 degree weather so I am not that guy, I never got down to 19 but the 35-45 seemed to be just fine but I guess I have more cold tolerance than the average reviewer here.
Not warm. I wear these gloves when it's too cool for finger-less. There's no way I'd wear these at all if the day was going to be colder than 60 degrees! There is simply the outer shell and that's it. No lining. In fact all you feel is the stitching on the fronts of your fingertips trying to nestle between your fingernail and finger. They definitely not windproof or waterproof by any means. Not that they claim to be, but what I'm getting at is that they not even resistant. Stitching is also starting to come undone on the wrist part of one of the gloves. I would not buy again. Bought an extra large because I have long fingers not fat hands. There was a lot of width room, great if I did have fat hands, but the XL did not accommodate long digits. So I don't have enough room for the length of my fingers but I've got some bunching in the palm from the extra material that's not getting filled out.
I have used these all winter in Oregon. That means rain and lots of it. If its just sprinkling and above 40 F, these are the ticket. Below about 40 and full on downpour - it takes something else. Yesterday I put a pair of thin wool liners on under them and was relatively warm, but soaking wet. I did say relatively warm right? Great for fall and spring cool morning rides.
I wore these through the bitter cold, early morning winter rides of Southern California. OK It never gets that cold here but I definitely need a warm glove on cold mornings. These worked great for me down to 40 degrees or so. The wind cuts in somewhat but it has never been a problem after I warm up a little. Any warmer and it would get uncomfortable. My hands are usually damp from sweat when I pull them off. I wouldn't want to go any warmer where I live. Probably not enough in northern climates. As far as fit, these are a little tight across the hand but normal in the length. The gloves are well made and I would buy them again. They have held up much better than the generic brand I bought before.
Have the yellow & they are really bright. Nice reflective accents throughout, including the thumb-tip which gives a little front-end reflection when riding on the hoods. I use these in temps 60ºF and below, paired up with BarMitts in the sub-40ºF range. Excellent dexterity, not bulky-feeling, but definitely NOT winter riding gloves (by themselves). No real insulation to speak of...they simply block the wind & repel rain / road spray, and do so effectively. That's 90% of your battle with cold-fingers anyway. Solid construction, good snot-wiping surface, and sufficient padding. One annoyance I cannot overlook is the cuff cinch design - - it's an elongated triangle of inflexible hard rubber, with hook & loop fasteners. It has so little surface area to make contact, and does absolutely nothing to tighten or seal the cuff. Makes me wonder if these were ever field-tested, and I can't figure out why PI changed this design from the earlier models which had wide hook & loop tabs at the cuff. Very irritating...I penalize PI one star for this, but I'd still recommend them for the visibility (yellow), function, durability and dexterity
How cold would these be good for? i live in chicago where winter temps fall well below zero accompanied by wind. i have a pair of the 09 cyclones that have worn out but worked solidly, but these look a little thinner. should i expect the same level of performance from these?
These are good down to about 40F. The only solution I've found for your sub-zero temps is to pair these Cyclone gloves with BarMitts. That does me well, riding in the same temperature range, though at that point, it's the rest of you that you have to worry about. These are the same weight as your 09 Cyclones...I had the same model myself
thanks everyone for the reviews... no regrets here, this is a great glove. i am having a hard time taking them off they are so comfortable! good stretch, texture, grip, soft snot zone- all good! i recommend these!
Just pulled them out of the bag. Have other PI gloves that fit well, these run small. Fairly light/midweight material. Not as heavy as my old Specialized, but not full winter weight like my bulky hits. Good reflective material which is important for dark fall/winter rides. Going to try one size up. 3 stars because too early to tell.
The gloves are great for wind and sometimes I wear them in hotter weather when it is a little overcast and all I have are shorts and a short sleeve jersey. They can make a difference just keeping the hands warm the first hour.
