PEARL IZUMI SPECIALS
Those of us don't wear gloves when we ride aren't necessarily asking for raw-meat road rash on our palms; we just have yet to find a pair of gloves that fit properly and cause less discomfort than bare hands already suffer. If you are in the same boat, take a look at the Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Pittards Gloves. Their simple comfort factor will keep you all gloved up even on the shortest, calmest rides.
Pearl Izumi has turned to expert advice from an orthopedic surgeon to make sure that the padding in the P.R.O. Pittards Gloves will protect the nerves in your hands by carrying the pressure away from those sensitive spots. This innovative 1:1 Glove Padding technology, which re-directs pressure to the hand's bony structures instead, eliminates numbness and tingling that can be so uncomfortable.
In addition to smart padding, Pearl Izumi has lavished its most advanced fabrics and materials on the glove. The Pittards WR 100X Natural Carbon Leather gives you luxurious softness along with durability and a great feel for the bars. For the palm mesh lining, Pearl Izumi has employed its In-R-Cool mesh to keep the hands cooler and manage moisture levels as you perspire. On the back of your hand, stretchy mesh with Minerale technology wicks, dries quickly, and prevents sunburn.
The P.R.O. Pittards gloves have been anatomically shaped to optimize the fit when you are grasping the handlebars, methodically fitting around every curve, knuckle and crease of your hand. You won't have to worry about fabric and padding bunching up under your hand on the bars, or sloppily sliding around as you change hand positions in a hurry.
The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Pittards Gloves come with a low profile wiping surface on the thumb and an easy-off removal tab so you won’t have to wait for your hands to cool down after a ride before taking these babies off. They are available in Black and White, and come in sizes Small through XX-Large.
