ELITE Gel Glove

We're a bit nostalgic for the classic era of cycling, but that doesn't mean we don't want modern technology in the mix. Fortunately for us Pearl blends modern and classic together in the ELITE Gel Gloves. They pack in gel padding that's 3D contoured to cushion your hand without bulk, and a timeless look to keep your kit cohesive and clean.

  • Classics and modern blend in Pearl's most popular gel glove
  • Gel padding reduces pressure and vibration on rough roads
  • New padding is 3D shaped to reduce bulk and improve grip
  • Synthetic leather palm is durable for long-term reliability
  • Reduced seams on inner palm limits chafing for improved comfort
  • Wiping surface on thumb keeps sweat at bay on long climbs

I've had PI gloves for years. These are the worst quality I've ever had. The padding is very thin. The wrist straps are very flimsy. If it wasn't backcountry, I would think they were counterfeits. Very disappointed.

I have to admit that I was disappointed when I first put them on. I have had past issues with carpal tunnel syndrome and my preference had always been for gloves with very thick gel inserts. In these the gel was so thin that I wondered why they bothered. But after a three hour ride, I found that actually work very well. In fact much better than I expected. There is just enough gel to absorb vibrations and they are thin and supple enough to allow a natural grip on the bars. Now I’m rethinking my preference for thick pads. I’m wondering if the thicker pads causing more pressure points on the palm. I purchased a pair of Giro Stradedure Supergel gloves with thicker pads at the same time. They are fine but the Pearl Izumi Elites are more comfortable. Cons: They are quite snug and not easy to remove in the middle or end of a ride. But I would not size up because the pads might not align with the correct place on the palms. Another ding is that the Velcro wrist strips can fold over onto the top of the glove which may lead to tearing at some point. Not sure why these even have Velcro. The gloves are snug enough to make the Velcro redundant. I would definitely buy these again.

Decent glove, fits a little small, so I'd bump up by one size... Also, the inside seams dont's eem to be cleaned up and have more little annoying itchy/chafe spots than I liked. But for $30, what can you expect. I returned them for a another product I liked more.
