Give your fingers a hand.
Your fingers do a lot for you: grab stuff, activate buttons, throw shift levers, pull brakes, rest thoughtfully on your chin — they're strong contenders for MVP in the category of somatic digits. Reward their can-do attitude this winter with the Pearl Izumi Softshell Gloves.
The PI Softshell technology for which the Select Softshells are named insulates, blocks wind, and resists water so you can ride comfortably in all cold-weather conditions. This barrier is further buttressed with a fleecy interior to achieve a balance of bulk and warmth so you stay comfortable in temperatures from 0 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit without completely losing touch with your handlebars. The strategically reinforced palm and silicone details also help to complement your fingers' bar grabbing, shifting, and braking expertise, and the thermally conductive index fingers and thumbs don't impede the virtually unlimited power your digits enjoy through smartphone touchscreen technology. Reflective elements help keep you visible in low-light conditions. The Select Softshell Gloves may lack the extra waterproof layer, hook-and-loop closure, and Primaloft insulation of the more expensive P.R.O and Elite models, but for economical protection that wards off temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, this is a hard value to beat.
The Pearl Izumi Select Softshell Gloves are available in five sizes ranging from Small to XX-Large in the colors Black and Screaming Yellow.
