When you ride in the Fall and Spring, you want a glove that blocks the elements and keeps you warm. You simply don’t need the heavy insulation delivered by the serious winter gloves. Ideally you also maintain your nimble fingers for easy movements and control usage. The Pearl P.R.O Softshell Glove delivers on all these accounts, and is an excellent example of how Pearl merges years of experience with cutting edge technology to equip cyclists for all conditions. The stretchy lightweight Pearl P.R.O softshell provides the outer shell on the forward facing, or top, of the glove. This fabric provides a barrier and light insulation, while the impregnated MineraleTM material manages moisture and absorbs odor. For the palm, Clarino leather is used for suppleness, grip, and smooth transitions between fabrics.
With a nod to the fast-paced modern world, the designers added conductive synthetic leather to the thumb and index finger so that your smartphone touchscreen doesn’t get lonely or require you to remove gloves before using (we know you are doing this when the bike is stopped in a safe place…). Pearl has oriented the articulation of the glove anatomically, using its 1:1 design process. This gives fluid, comfortable movement at all times, and ensures the tactile relationship between your hands and the bar, as well as the controls, and your vest zipper. Per usual Pearl attention to detail, a soft fleece on the back of the thumb provides safe wiping, and reflective material is carefully placed.
