Committed riders know that the end of summer is the start of the most enjoyable riding season of the year, at least if you're well prepared. With shorter days come cooler temperatures, and the Pearl Izumi Thermal Women's Gloves provide plenty of warmth for those days, without being stifling like a 'true' winter glove. Why suffer through rides in the shoulder seasons when you're able to be toasty and comfortable instead?
These gloves employ Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. fabric, but with an added twist. Pearl included Minerale as an additive, which was chosen to improve the heat retention of the gloves. So, your digits stay warmer for longer. As with other iterations of the P.R.O. fabric, it's a polyester/spandex blend, which pairs controlled stretch with excellent breathability. Basically, this material transports moisture away from your hands to the surface of the fabric. From there, it quickly evaporates. The upshot is that your hands stay dry, which is essential for keeping them warm when the mercury is low.
Pearl built these gloves with a contoured cut that's built specifically for a woman's hand. In other words, they're pre-curved to accommodate the shape that your hand makes while grabbing the handlebars. And the result is that bunching is kept to a minimum, replaced instead with a snug, close-to-skin fit. Additionally, you'll find reflective accents, which boost your visibility to motorists when the light gets low. Also, Clarino synthetic leather has been employed in high-wear areas of the palm in order to provide longevity.
The Pearl Izumi Thermal Conductive Women's Gloves are available in the sizes Small, Medium, and Large and in the colors Black and Screaming Yellow.
