The spring line of Pearl Izumi Spring Ride 2016 product line for women goes back to basics on form and function, with happy bursts of colors in designs.
Available in screaming pink, dark purple, deep lake (green), Pearl Izumi’s Women’s Select Long Sleeve Jersey fits like a comfortable glove. The transfer dry fabric moves with your body in comfort and style, it wicks sweat while keeping you warm. I liked the full zipper that allowed for maximum venting when my cool morning ride became warm as the sun came up. Bonus: reflective striping on the back! Available in XS to XXL. Great for chilly spring mornings.
Made for hot days, the Pearl Izumi Women’s Select Sleeveless Jersey makes it easy to get rid of that “farmer’s tan” from short-sleeved cycling jerseys that so many of us try to avoid. The Women’s Select Sleeveless Jersey is extremely very comfortable. The fabric feels soft like cotton against the skin. I liked the screaming yellow version for high visibility on my sunset training rides here in Arizona. The reflective striping also adds visibility on the road. If you want to be that mysterious “Lady in Red,” check out the mandarin red version of this super stylish sleeveless jersey. Excellent choice for the southwest where spring means summer-like temperatures.
If you want eye-catching graphics, check out the Women’s Select LTD Short Sleeve Jersey. Available for a limited time only, the spyrograph gone wild design will make sure you are noticed. “Cool shirt,” said my nine-year-old nephew when I rode with him on a local mountain bike trail. I was wearing the Fern Scuba Blue jersey of purple, pink, yellow, and white—trust me, it all works somehow! I liked the three pockets in the back, and the comfortable wicking fabric. Sizes range from XS to XXL. However, size availability depends on the design. Among the graphic choices: Orchid Spiral, 70’s Paradise Pink, Black Bamboo, and Flower Meadow Mauve.
I also pedaled my local bike path in the Women’s Select Short Sleeve Jersey in a beautiful teal color, it’s a perfect new jersey to celebrate spring.
Pearl Izumi excels at making basic black shorts. When racing, I use the Women’s Elite Short instead of my uncomfortable (from another brand) team short. The Women’s Race 3D chamois stays comfortable and cool even during long hot races. The wide V-style waistband reduces restriction while in my road bike drops or sitting upright on my mountain bike. The breathable 4-way stretch fabric adjusts to the body to wick moisture away. It also has reflective elements for low-light visibility.
Another friskier short style from Pearl Izumi is the Women’s Sugar Short. This short has the same comfortable waistband and chamois, but a shorter inseam at 5 inches. The white side panel with the Pearl Izumi logo is the bold highlight in an otherwise basic black short. Perfect for indoor spinning class or bike riding with your sweetheart.
And don’t forget your hands! Pearl Izumi Women’s Select Gloves and Women’s Thermal Conductive Glove keep you comfortable in warm and cold weather, respectively. The Select Glove comes in a variety of colors. Mix and match with your new Pearl Izumi jerseys. Gel foam padding relieves pressure on ulnar and media nerves for riding.
Celebrate spring and treat yourself to some great looking, great-fitting cycling clothes from Pearl Izumi!
