Review by NM Berkeley

Great fit, good value glove
by NM Berkeley
Berkeley CA

Got these to replace a pair of suede-y gel padded Velcro closure Giros and am very satisfied with these gloves. Ordered my usual size- L- and they fit perfectly. Snug but not uncomfortable, and the lack of a strap means they stay put with no need to fiddle during a ride. Clever little tabs on the fingers to facilitate removing the gloves.

Great gloves!
by Mike

The fit seems tight at first and removing them was difficult until I discovered the finger loops on the middle fingers are used to pull the gloves off. I love that they are machine washable.

Best gloves for my longer rides
by jSquare

I prefer no velcro, as little padding as the conditions allow, aero fit, good wiping area. These check off those boxes. I wear a pad-less glove for shorter rides, but for longer rides or venturing into unknown territory, I go to these gloves. Padding makes my hands prone to numbing, but these pads are well-placed and low profile -- they are comfortable without feeling the pad sticking out. No numbing. I have worn the heck out of them and they have zero wear issues. These have finger pulls; not sure what one reviewer was referring to. I am 5' 10" and wear a large in these -- a hair loose but i do not like gloves tightening around the base of my fingers.

Not too sure about these gloves
by Jeff

I normally love PI items.. they are my go to! Well made, great value, colors don't run, etc. These gloves are VERY tight! I'm hoping they loosen up with a few rides but not too sure if they will. They seem nice, but upsize at least one size.

Needs a strap

Gloves slipped all over my hands especially when riding a mountain bike (paved trail). The issue has lessened with more use. The gel pads were not that big of an improvement over P.I.'s select gloves. I purchased a pair of select gloves at the same time and will save some money by sticking with them the next time I purchase. I think a strap at the wrist would improve the performance of the gel gloves. The select gloves include this feature.

I'm just between sizes so can't really recommend unless you try them on

Extremely tight for me in size large, so even though PI large fits me 99% of the time, because these have no velcro they have to be very tight. Once I squeeze into them they are comfortable but they're so hard to put on/off that I default to my gloves with velcro.

The gloves are great!
by Cary K

This is the second pair of these exact gloves that I have owned and I love them! I always buy my gloves a little smaller so that when they "relax", they fit perfectly. I bought my other 3 or 4 years ago and I put about 7500 miles on the bike a year. My old pair is still great just a little worn on the top where I grip the hoods

All Day Protection
by Biddler

I use these gloves for every day riding 20-35 mile rides. But I bought them to use for the longer and up to Century rides as my go to glove. When up in the saddle all day you need every bit of vibration dampening possible. But I really like the snug fit without being too tight. A little bit of wiggling needed to get off but its not too hard.

Thinner padding but good location

The padding on these gloves is thinner than I usually prefer, but the padding is wider and better located for comfort. They are holding up well so far, and I use them for all my bike riding (gravel, road, track).

Better than bare hands.
by ws hughes

We have lots of rough roads in SE New Mexico so gloves are pretty much a must. Ordered large size but couldn't get them on so had to exchange them for Xtra large, which were still tight. Struggle to get them off. Other than that they seem quality, but I expected more for the price.

No strap
by KB

Bought this glove strictly on the color, blue. Has no loosening mechanism to get on and off. After riding for several hour the glove is a bit difficult to get off. Maybe a good thin as I wash the gloves after each use. These are holding up pretty well.

I've purchased about 50 pair of cycling gloves and never had a pair that stopped pain in my hands, until now. The Pearl Izumi Pro Gel Gloves fit perfectly with no Velcro and the gel makes for the most comfortable rides I've ever had. Now these get an A+.

Review by bleckb

solid glove but a little less padding than other PI gloves
by bleckb

Overall I like this glove, though it does seem to offer a little less padding/comfort than some other PI gloves. Also, on bike removal, because there are no straps, can be awkward. Fits the same as other PI gloves.

My hands go numb with other gloves, but the Pearl Izumi gloves like these have the pads in the right location for me. I really like not having the Velcro, which makes them easier to wash with my other bike stuff.

I've been using the prior generation of pro gel glove, the vented one with the velcro strap. Liked those just fine, but these are an improvement.

Actually easier to get on and off

More Aerodynamic

Better palm surface, on the prior generation the gel pads started to delaminate from the glove

Great gloves that fit perfectly, lightweight and no velcro. Don't know why most gloves come with velcro adjustable cuffs. If the glove fits properly its completely unnecessary. Pearl Izumi quality also a plus. Will need to order more pairs of these to keep in the rotation.

Order the correct size and no more numb hands.
by KatieJo

A bit hard to take off since no finger pull tabs. But after several uses they stretch a bit and removal gets easier.

No velcro strap to snug them up so be sure to order the right size. I have small hands and the large size fits perfectly. Just enough padding in just the right spots.

Comfy glove, easy to wash

I use a lot of PI products for road riding. Once you snug this pair on, they fit comfortably and provide good padding during the ride. Because they don't have a velcro strap, they need to be tugged on and off. But they come with little assist-straps to help with this. One of the big upsides is how easy they are to wash in the sink. With a drop or two of Dawn and warm water, they clean up quickly and smell fresh for the next ride.

I love these gloves because the padding is not too thick nor is it too thin! I also love that there�s no Velcro strap to have to mess with. I just wore these gloves riding across the state of Colorado and they were awesome!

This is a high-quality glove, functions well. and has a clean look which I was looking for. I like the gel padding and overall its a comfortable glove. Why I give this a 4/5 is after a couple of months some of the stitching came loose, but I have had this same problem with other gloves as they take a beating.
