For bulk-free manoeuvring through cool, wet miles you can't beat Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell Lite Gloves. By combining 50g Primaloft® Gold
insulation on the back of hand with a Clarino
synthetic leather palm and silicone traction printing Pearl Izumi are able to offer a superb glove allowing riders to maintain a good grip on the handlebars without sacrificing the 'feel' of the road for optimum bike control. Those who detest the cold and wet will love the Softshell's insulation to wind and its superior water-resistance, not to mention the extended cuff to close the gap to sleeves and the fleecy soft, nose-wiping surface to keep your face clean.
The P.R.O. Softshell is a lightweight Unisex glove featuring reflective elements to keep you visible and safe under wintry skies, and also comes fitted with conductive thumb and index fingers to allow use of any smart phone or music player without having to remove your hands from their cosy-warm, fleece-lined haven. And, while other gloves in this category, issued by other manufacturers, will let rain soak through to freeze your skin, these will not. Water just beads up and runs away, leaving hands warm and dry – and proving its worth as a reliable companion for cool weather.
• The P.R.O. series is the absolute pinnacle of Pearl Izumi's philosophy of design and performance. Designed to meet the performance needs of avid cyclists this series is characterised by the world famous ergonomic construction of Pearl Izumi Transfer materials and advanced moisture drains for optimum comfort.
