Cycling apparel enhances your riding performance and comfort while you’re on the bike. It is designed to reduce friction while also providing moisture wicking benefits. In 1964, one of Kinji Shimizu’s sons raced for the Japanese national team at the Asian Cycling Championships. His son, Hiro, got to wear a special jersey that was made in Italy that was 100% nylon. After this, Kinji created his first kit based on that jersey that was made in Italy using the best materials he could find. This obsessive approach led to countless innovations. Pearl Izumi has been creating some of the best cycling apparel on the market for all types of cycling. Whether you’re a mountain biker, road rider, or triathlete, you’ll find what you need from Pearl Izumi.
