LOUISVILLE, Colo. (February 19, 2019)— For Spring 2019, PEARL iZUMi, the world’s leader in cycling apparel and footwear, introduces new styles and updates to its Mountain apparel line.

“We’ve invested a lot into our Mountain product offering for several seasons, and this year you’ll see a focus on updates to our most popular styles, along with a design refresh that adds exciting energy” says Alex Strouthopoulos, Sr. Product Manager at PEARL iZUMi. “The new Mountain line includes gear that suits every kind of day out on the trail”

New styles include the men’s and women’s Summit Shell Jacket ($100), which weighs in at a svelte 110g and packs up small enough to go with you on every ride, providing reliable wind and water protection, without sacrificing ventilation. The hood is thin enough to fit easily under your helmet. With an easy to operate premium two-way YKK Vislon® zipper, it can be quickly zipped up from the bottom to vent while climbing while avoiding excessive flap. Best of all, when things clear up you can stuff it back into the included envelope pocket.

Another great addition is the Summit WxB Jacket ($200) which is designed for wet weather trail riding, that features a game changing three position hood which can be worn over a helmet, adjusted for casual use off the bike or rolled up and stored with a simple snap. On the trail, riders will stay comfortable and protected even at speed thanks to an integrated vent that keeps the hood from ballooning. Highly breathable ELITE WxB 2.5-layer fabric, two-way YKK Vislon® front zipper and underarm vents manage body heat and water vapor to keep riders dry on the inside. Full seam taping and a durable water repellent finish make this jacket absolutely waterproof.

Several of the most popular short styles have been updated this season. A redesigned Journey Short ($75) now features a new premium chamois liner, seamless crotch panel and high rise rear waist for added in-the-saddle comfort. The new women’s Launch Print Short ($125) is made with lightweight two-way stretch fabric for hot weather, trail spray shedding durable water repellent finish and inside is a premium liner short with a fast-drying Women’s SELECT Escape 1:1® Chamois. Finally the all new Summit Short ($110) is engineered to be the benchmark of lightweight trail shorts. Featuring an elastic-free waistband with hook and loop side adjustments, this short will stay comfortably and reliably in place. A new Trail Access pocket design angles the pocket bags backwards to shift contents comfortably to the side and out of the way while pedaling. For added toughness and comfort, new bonded and angled leg openings help to prevent snagging on knee pads and minimize chafing. A new premium liner with a fast drying chamois rounds out this high-performance package.

Two new lace up Mountain shoes also join the line for Spring. “The X-Alp Flow ($100) is a new flat pedal shoe that delivers tremendous performance for the money,” said Diana Pickler, Footwear Product Manager for PEARL iZUMi. “It has a fresh skate style and features the same type of dual density sole as the high end X-Alp Launch, for a great combination of pedal traction and long term durability.” Also new to the line is the X-Alp Peak ($150), which marries a minimalist outdoor style to the ultra capable sole first debuted in the X-Alp Elevate. “Riders love the off-bike confidence of the X-Alp Elevate and the new X-Alp Peak offers this capability to riders who prefer a different aesthetic.”

PEARL iZUMi was founded on two things: the love of cycling and more importantly, love for future generations. More than 60 years ago a father in Japan created a special jersey out of technical fabric for his son, an aspiring bike racer. Since then, the company has been evolving and revolutionizing the design and manufacture of performance apparel and footwear for cyclists. PEARL iZUMi believes how we live today shapes how future generations ride, which is why they are committed to having a positive impact with cycling through sustainability and environmentally friendly actions. PEARL iZUMi’s world headquarters is rooted in the Colorado Front Range where it embraces strong influence, both culturally and structurally, from its Japanese heritage.
