What community has to say
Poor Construction and Customer Service from Manufacturer
As with other reviewers, the stitching on my gloves began to come undone after one ride, and the gloves were falling apart after three. I contacted Pearl Izumi directly, and they instructed me to send the gloves directly to the warranty department. Three months and several email exchanges later, and I never received a replacement pair... I just told them to not bother sending me another, because I no longer wish to support their company.
Good fit. Poor construction
I'm giving these two stars because stiching on palm started unraveled after one ride! Now after a few rides and washes the palms have lose strings all over them. This is too bad because gloves look nice and padding is good.
I will not be buying these PI gloves again.
Pearl Izumi could do (a lot) better...
These gloves feel correct-to-size in the palms, but seem tight around the fingers.
Not quite like, say- wearing a tourniquet around each finger, but tight enough.
On the plus side, the fabric breathes quite nicely and the padding seems to be in all the right places. That said, there really isn't enough of it. I've used much cheaper gloves that did better in that respect.
All in all, it made for a fairly uncomfortable test ride, and getting these off afterward proved to be a tangle as well- the only pull-tab, on the outside of the third finger, really isn't adequate for quick & easy removal.
So, bottom line: these gloves run small and are more than a little awkward.
Great comfort but stains hands...
I bought these because they have no velcro closures. Velcro tends to pick other clothing in the washer and dryer and so I wanted no more velcro in my kit. The comfort of these gloves is amazing considering how little the padding seems to be. The only downsize is the stains on your hands. I have washed and dried them several times but they still leave very obvious stains on your hands.
hand stains from gloves
These gloves are comfy but even after 5 or 6 washes and a few hundred miles, they continue to stain my hands with their hellish ink. It is difficult to get off.
The updated gel padding is an improvement over the previous generation and helps reduce road vibration and hand fatigue over longer rides.
