Pearl Izumi Elite Softshell Cycling Gloves Review

Best Cycling Gloves - Pearl Izumi Elite Softshell

The Pearl Izumi Elite Softshell are suitable choice gloves for cold rides that have been constructed with the Primaloft® gold (100g) insulator to keep the hands warm and a gel padding to protect the hands from shocks and vibrations.

The gloves are made of synthetic leather materials and lined on the inside with fleece lining and a similar fleece material for the absorbent thumb surface for wiping moisture. The gloves give enhanced finger deftness with the 1:1 glove fit and a secure fit is ensured with the hook-and-loop closure on the cuffs.

The gloves are not only comfortable to wear but they offer the best protection you can expect from gloves even in the event of a fall. They are definitely one of the best cold weather gloves that guard against cold and bruises.
