Ready to take on bumps and road grit, the Pearl Izumi Pro Pittards® Gel bike gloves protect hands in style.

  • Pittards leather palms ensure a solid grip on the handlebar and remain supple, even in wet conditions
  • Working with an orthopedic surgeon, Pearly Izumi strategically placed gel padding directly over the boney pillars of the hand to dissipate shock absorption
  • Gel padding alleviates compression of nerves that causes loss of feeling during long rides
  • Gloves are patterned around the anatomic arches of hand for a 3D shape; shape reduces bunching for superior fit and increased handlebar feel
  • Mesh palms reduce overheating and perspiraton
  • Polyester fibers keep hands cool and comfortable in heat and humidity
  • Soft thumb fabric offers a gentle means to wipe nose or brow
  • Pearl Izumi Pro Pittards Gel bike gloves feature a simple pull-on design and easy-off removal tab on fingers

Imported.

Pearl Izumi Pro Pittards Gel Bike Gloves - Men'sis rated2.0out of5by1.
Rated2out of5byfromPoor StitchingThese gloves do not have the usual velco release at the wrist, but fit tightly and are pulled on and off using a designated pull site between fingers. I like the fit and style of these gloves (so a 2-star instead of a 1-star review). However, I agree with the previous reviewer's comment about the stitching. Many of the stitches around the padding started to unravel almost immediately and now (2 years later) most of the stitches around the padding are coming undone. I don't think any of the structural stitches are coming undone, only the stitches holding the pads in place. Because I like the fit and style, I am taking the time to restitch those seams, but if you don't have the skill or patience to do that, then these are probably not a good buy.
