PEARL iZUMi Debuts New Road Pieces and Designs

PEARL iZUMi transformed its road bike collection with new styles, colors and designs. With a refocus on sleek and effortless design, the new road collection is like nothing PEARL iZUMi has ever created.

Our mantra for this season was simplify to amplify, said Michael Thompson, Global Category Manager for PEARL iZUMi. We challenged ourselves to remove panels, streamline materials and make it easy for riders to create great looking outfits. You’ll see an increased emphasis on sleek details too, including laser cut hems and bib straps, that look and feel great on the rider.

The new line also received a significant design refresh. According to Lynn Bush, Design Manager for PEARL iZUMi, “You’ll notice a few main design themes for this season. First, we focused on sophisticated solids that could be easily mixed and matched across the line, and we added navy bottoms that allow riders to update their wardrobe with a fresh new basic option. And for a little more seasonal interest, we created several new prints that add a human element to complement the technical silhouettes.”

 

Developed by PEARL iZUMi’s own design team, the new road collection features an array of new hand drawn prints for a “perfect imperfect” look. New patterns include Wish, Kimono, Stripe and Paisley. A combination of classic PEARL iZUMi colors with the new patterns creates a refined aesthetic for the 2019 season.

A new lace up road shoe joins the line as well. Some riders love the look and feel of a lace-up shoe, said Diana Pickler, Footwear Product Manager at PEARL iZUMi, we’re excited to offer this experience and aesthetic at a competitive price point with the new Tour and Sugar Road shoes.
We are so excited to debut the new 2019 road collection, said Andrew Hammond, Brand Manager at PEARL iZUMi, The team has worked really hard to create a fresh new look and improve on the details that make PEARL iZUMi products perform so well. We can’t wait to get riders in the new gear.

The Road Collection includes:

Men’s and Women’s Attack Glove

Traditional cycling gloves add comfort by adding padding, which presents a tradeoff that has led some riders to go glove-less in favor of better bar feel. Unfortunately, they also give up nerve protection and the extra security of a glove. The Attack Glove takes the opposite approach and provides support, rather than padding, to alleviate hand numbness. Our 1:1® Connect Palm uses a specially shaped, low profile gel insert to maintain the natural arch across your palm (go ahead, take a quick look at your hand) to avoid numb fingers. This maintains handlebar contact at the knuckles and the heel of your palm, and adds the slip free grip of synthetic leather for locked in control.
