Description

Ready for anything.

Using a bicycle as a tool to get from point A to point B is a great way to travel, but you're exposed to quickly changing conditions. The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell WxB 3x1 Glove offers the versatility to use the iner or shell alone—or, when it's really nasty out—combined to create the ultimate fortress from frosty weather.

  • Waterproof and breathable membrane is directly bonded to the external layer of the shell for ultimate resistance to the elements
  • Pittards WR100X natural carbon leather palm resists wear and provides a secure grip
  • Liner glove uses P.R.O. Thermal Lite fabric and Clarino synthetic leather for durability
  • Primaloft synthetic insulation provides warmth without bulk
  • Anatomically-shaped fit maximizes dexterity for shifting and braking
  • Hook-and-loop closure locks the elements out
  • Reflective elements for low-light visibility

Toasty.

  • Fit: True to size

These gloves are pretty great. I used them for riding all winter through cold rain and light snow, followed by a 2400 mile tour through British Columbia, Yukon, and Alaska with temps down to the 20s and 30s.

The gloves would get wet on the inside pretty reliably, probably moreso from sweat than rain. This is certainly not optimal but after trying many types of gloves I'm convinced this is inevitable with this amount of insulation and waterproofing. As long as you maintain light to moderate exertion you will keep the gloves warm despite being wet. I found the liners not to be all that great, but I don't really see the need for them. For warmer temps I wear the Pearl Izumi softshell lite gloves.

Dexterity is as good as you can get for a glove this warm. It was possible albeit clunky to operate my point and shoot camera with these gloves and while riding.

At the end of the day, if you're going to be riding in seriously nasty weather I would highly recommend these gloves for keeping your digits intact.

What you'd expect at this price point

Expensive, yes, but there has to be a reason, right?... The answer is warmth. Uncompromising warmth. You can use these with or without the secondary liner...so far, I haven't used the liner and I've been comfortable down to 25°F. I didn't think 5-finger gloves could hold warmth like lobster gloves, but these do even better. They cover about 3" beyond your wrist to eliminate any gap in coverage between glove & jersey. They have not allowed any water in, despite riding in a few moderate rains. Not overly bulky, and they've loosened up a little since I started wearing them, conforming nicely to my hand anatomy. Construction is excellent, as are the aesthetics. I'll really put them through the paces this winter & see how it goes, but they certainly fit the bill anywhere from 25°F to 45°F, rain or shine. Until now, I've preferred cold-weather riding with BarMitts and a thinner full-finger glove (at the expense of dexterity and maneuverability) but these just might be the all-glove answer I've been hoping for

Responded on

In the past week, I've ridden in both pouring rain and 23°F temps. In the rain, these gloves did not take on water. They remained warm & dry inside. In this morning's 23°F temps, I decided to use the liners. After 1/2 hour, only the tips of my thumbs & pointer fingers started to feel cold, but I suspect that's because I haven't broken in the liners to the extent I have the gloves. The liners constricted the fit somewhat, so after a few more uses, we'll see how things go. Again, compare to using BarMitts, I really appreciate that these gloves offer such a high degree of protection with unrestricted hand positions on the bike
