Pearl Izumi has led the way in gloves construction with its innovative 1:1 Glove Technology with advanced palm patterning design which provides an anatomic fit by contouring the hand’s complex shape combined with its Easy Off glove removal tab which allows fast glove removal after an arduous ride. Pearl Izumi’s 1:1 Glove Padding creates a comfort bridge over the ulnar and median nerves to minimize pressure and improve blood flow to the fingertips. Working with accomplished orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Rhett Griggs, Pearl Izumi strategically placed padding directly over each of the four Boney Pillars of the hand to direct pressure where the body is meant to carry it. When pressure is directed away from areas above your nerves that causes loss of feeling or numbness. Its patented 1:1 Glove Fit is patterned around the anatomic arches of the hand that give the hand its 3D shape. This unique process provides an optimal fit around every curve, knuckle and crease of the hand to prevent bunching and provide the perfect bar interface. Pearl Izumi has also introduced a new conductive synthetic leather fabric on the index and thumb for touch-screen compatibility (available on most winter gloves).
