PEARL iZUMi’s lightest, stiffest and most breathable shoe, the new P.R.O. Leader v4 (329,95€ SRP features groundbreaking technology top to bottom. An asymmetric closure places dual IP-1 Boa reels slightly off-center to avoid sensitive areas on top of the foot and the sole and upper are joined using a unique unibody construction to deliver a super low 5 mm stack height for a powerful pedal stroke. Electroplating provides an unexpected flash of color to the bottom of this high performance shoe.
PEARL iZUMi just launched their exclusive PI DRY™ technology that allows riders to take on wet conditions more comfortably. PI DRY™ is a high performance hydrophobic fabric technology that transforms knit fabrics so they completely repel precipitation and road spray. This technology is featured in a number of products for men and women, including the ELITE Thermal Arm Warmer for men and women (34,95€ SRP) and the P.R.O. Pursuit Cycling Bib Tight (184,95€ SRP).
This season, PEARL iZUMi launched the Versa collection. Versa apparel is designed to be comfortable, versatile and functional on any type of bike, any road or trail, and even off the bike. Every piece is designed for a minimum one-hour ride.
Versa collection is a line of clothing that takes cues from more casual cuts and styling. It’s comprehensive too; with liners that fit under more casual clothing to give you range on your adventures, and transition to everyday life easily.
Available in both men’s and women’s styles, the Versa Barrier Jacket (129,95€ SRP) is a wear-anywhere, cool-weather jacket, with special bike specific details. It contains features such as DWR finish, hidden hand mitts, reflective elements and a hood.
The Men’s Versa Pant (129,95€ SRP) is designed to excel on the bike and blend in once you’re off, with features such as reflective elements, water resistance, a gusseted crotch, belt loops and both zippered security and hand pockets. For her, the Women’s Versa Long Sleeve Henley (59,95€ SRP) is a must-have in cool weather. This shirt is comfortable on the bike and looks great off the bike. A drop tail hem keeps the lower back covered while in a riding position, and the semi-form fit keeps her looking stylish when hanging around town.
