Pearl Izumi Escape Softshell Lite Glove
A seemingly simple thermal slip-on full finger glove with touch screen compatibility, silicone grip material and it's made be Pearl Izumi? Order it up! What cyclist doesn't need a glove like this? These lightweight Escape Softshell Lite Gloves keep the wind out and your hands warm and on cool days in the 40-50°F range, they are just about perfect. Plus, the gloves feature a lightly brushed interior that is comfortable on the skin, traps a little heat and helps to wick moisture. A long elastic cuff provides a simple, clean feel on the wrist and eliminates bulk while keeping the cold from sneaking in. This easy slip-on design is a winner.
The two essential technical fabrics of the Escape Softshell Glove are Pearl's SELECT Softshell Lite and SELECT Thermal Lite. The back of the glove, that faces the oncoming wind and water is a true softshell. Lightweight breathable, and supple for freedom of use, SELECT Softshell Lite has been a benchmark fabric for Pearl. On the palm the designers apply the SELECT Thermal Lite, which keeps the palm warm, dry, and comfortable. In high friction areas you find a synthetic leather strategically placed. The conductive synthetic leather on each index finger and thumb works with well touchscreen devices and the silicone screened palm and fingers deliver a wet or dry performance grip.
The designers finish the Escape Softshell with a longer stretch cuff that is comfortable on the wrist, seals out cold air, and ensures a working fit. A soft, large fleec wiping zone is windproof and always appreciated, and BioViz® reflective elements ensure low-light visibility. In other words, this glove is typical of Pearl Izumi's commitment to performance and practical, useful details. The Escape Softshell Lite Glove really is a glove every cyclist can and should have. Perfect for commuting, road, mtb, gravel, whatever. In other words, these will sell out.
