Gloves 2011 Select Gel Series
Ideal for riders who put in a lot of saddle time, the Pearl Izumi Select gel glove has been updated with Comfort Bridge Gel padding. The palm is constructed of soft, durable Clarino synthetic leather, and its anatomic palm patterning provides optimal comfort and ventilation. The Comfort Bridge Gel-Vent padding relieves pressure on the ulnar and median nerves for riding comfort plus superior ventilation and durability. Additionally, the In-R-Cool mesh palm lining provides optimal skin-cooling effect and moisture management when you perspire. Other features include a soft, low-profile wiping surface on thumb, easy-off glove removal tab, hook-and-loop closure, and Direct-Vent mesh that ventilates while providing UPF 40+ sun protection. Machine washable (no fabric softeners).See all Product description
Top Customer Reviews
-The fabric around the fingers is kinda scratchy
-The fingers are a bit long, restricting separation
-The tag inside the glove is itchy
-The easy removal tab should go on the middle finger as opposed to the ring finger
-The colors offered and reflective stitching should work well for visibilty
-The sporty/girly mix of styles
-The gel padding is soft and thick
-The ventilation holes
1) The padding/gel is negligible. I think cotton balls would be better.
2) Many reviews mentioned that the gloves aren't true to size, running small, so I ordered a 7.5 rather than a size 7 and they fit snugly; however, as you ride and your hands get sweaty, they tend to ride up and cut off the circulation in the fingers, but once you try to remove them they tend to be sweat glued to your hands and it takes some tugging.
3) The velcro closure works fine
4) There is a label in the palm of one glove, but I didn't have a problem (probably because my fingers are numb).
5) I've used the gloves for 10 days and they are holding up well. I haven't had any snags or unraveling.
I gave the gloves 3 stars, because they are pretty, but if you are a serious cycler, spend a little more on some really well padded gloves.
the one pet peeve is that they are challenging to get off, once you're done wearing them. I think it's just part of how cycling gloves are made - because I've seen some with loops attached to the fingers, but I didn't like how they looked, so I chose these instead. It's not a big deal - but you should know this about most cycling gloves.
These have a light, almost mesh-like material in some places, which makes for breath-ability. Overall, I think these are well made gloves and I'm happy with them.
The seam on the palm between the forefinger and thumb is fine on the left hand, but stiff, sharp and uncomfortable on the right hand. The padding doesn't seem like much, and there is still discomfort while riding, but post ride there is significantly less lingering discomfort than wearing none. The padding is in a great place to protect the meaty part of the lower palm. It seemed the middle of the palm didn't have much.
There are two very large tags in one glove, but I make sure they are folded up to the upper part of the hand vs. the palm and they haven't bothered me. The grey color is nice and the white parts help for hand signal visibility. They were the best out of the 10 I tried on in a store, but there's room for improvement.
Still surprised that companies don't make goods in petite and tall versions of things. All the rest of the clothing fashion community can manage it, why not cycling?
Overall they're pretty good. If they were destroyed I'd get a pair again until I figure out that magical illusive well-fitting, perfectly padded pair.
