P.R.O. Softshell Lite Glove - Men's by Pearl Izumi
The way we see it, there are three tiers of cold-weather gloves that any year-round cycling wardrobe has to meet. The classic knit glove is the first piece of cold-weather kit we put on in fall and the last we take off in spring. The heavyweight lobster glove is the kingpin of winter cycling, keeping your fingers warm through the worst conditions. In between these two extremes lies the Pearl Izumi P. R. O. Softshell Lite Glove, which thrives in temperatures ranging from the high-30s to the mid-50s, providing enough insulation and wind-resistance to keep the cold out without causing us to overheat and get all clammy with sweat. The back of the gloves consist of P. R. O. Softshell fabric, a wind- and water-resistant material that also insulates and wicks. It keeps your hands warm and dry, but without the extra insulation from the regular P. R. O. Softshell Glove. Pearl Izumi uses soft, durable Clarino synthetic leather on the palms, and the index fingers and thumbs are tipped with a bit of the same material, with added grip to make them touchscreen compatible. Before you worry that winter gloves signify a total loss in dexterity, we'll remind you that Pearl uses its 1:1 glove fit and palm construction on the P. R. O. Softshell Lite, so you'll enjoy freedom of movement with no restriction between the thumb and forefinger while your hands are on the hoods. The wrist cuff is exaggerated to keep nasty cold drafts out, and a soft bit of windproof fleece on the thumb lets you wipe undesirable matter off your face before you stop into the coffee shop post-ride. Finally, a wealth of reflective elements help keep you visible to motorists in the often dim conditions that characterize winter riding.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
