Don't let the weatherman call the shots.

You're bound to see some nasty conditions when you ride your bike every day. Pearl Izumi knows this and developed the Elite Softshell Glove for those less-than-perfect days. Pearl uses a synthetic clarino leather palm to ensure the Elite is durable and weather-resistant. They also use Primaloft synthetic insulation to provide warmth, even when wet, to help keep your hand warm when the weather is less than ideal. 

Moisture can also affect grip, and for this reason Pearl gave the Elite Softshell Glove silicone grippers that work dry or wet. This'll give you excellent control during rainy rides. But, that control can be worthless if your hands are suffering from that 'pins-and-needle' feeling due to blood-restricting pressure.

Pearl Izumi's designers are sticklers for comfort, and that shows through with the Elite Softshell's padding placement. The gel is located to dampen road vibration without hindering blood flow, and it won't pinch the ulnar nerve.

The Elite Softshell is cut for perfect ergonomics to add excellent dexterity when shifting or braking. This also avoids bunching at the handlebar grips for a seamless connection to the bicycle. Extended cuffs help lock out cold wind and reflective elements add low-light safety.

Didn't do the job

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Rode for 40 minutes in 30 F degrees. Used a thick alpaca wool liner. Finger tips were cold in 25 minutes, numb by 35 minutes. Sending them back.

Very warm and gets the job done

I have worn these on rides at 25 degrees with no wind and they have kept my hands warm. Not too bulky that you can't shift and use your brakes either.

Great fit and features

Pearl really does a good job on gloves and my initial impressions with these gloves are very positive. The only draw back is the gel palm. It kind of makes them hard to use for warm weather skiing and xc skiing. No doubt though that my hands will be happy in cold weather on the bike.

Great -5C to +5C Glove

I have used mine for 2 seasons and am very pleased with these. I use them on rides of up to 4 hours and they are really comfortable. The shaping and padding are ideal for road biking.

Weren't as warm as I thought they would be given their Primaloft insulation. I add a glove liner for the colder days and this works for me.
