PEARL IZUMI SOUTH AFRICA
Size guide for the perfect fit

Just because there are no fitting rooms doesn’t mean you can’t find the correct size when shopping online.

 

The perfect fit

What to look out for

You’ve probably noticed that PEARL IZUMI places a huge emphasis on fit. It’s more like an obsession, really. It helps us produce the most advanced and innovative cycling gear that still fits better than anything else on the market. Because even the best cycling gear is useless if it doesn’t fit right.

The best way to find the right size is to know your body’s exact measurements. It’s the closest you’ll ever get to trying cycling clothing on so make sure it’s as accurate as possible. Here are some tips:

 

A

Chest

Your chest measurement should be taken underneath your arms around the fullest part of your chest.

B

Arms

Arm measurements should be taken around the biggest part of your upper arm.

C

Waist

Your waist measurement should be taken around the smallest part of the abdomen above the beltline.

D

Hip

Your hip measurement should be taken around the widest part of your hips below the beltline.

E

Glove

Your glove size can be determined by measuring around your hand over your knuckles.

F

Sock

Your sock size is the same as your shoe size.

 

Size Guide

We trust the numbers and so should you.

You have your numbers: speed, distance and time. We have ours: widths, lengths and circumferences. Cycling is a numbers game and we’ve spent years crunching them so we could develop the most intuitive, accurate and effective sizing system for our garments. And we think we finally nailed it. The PEARL IZUMI Size Guide is a brilliant tool for finding the perfect fit when buying online.

All you need are your most recent and accurate measurements on hand, a few quick conversations and you’ll be able to cross-reference the right size on our charts in no time. Or sizing index includes the relevant sizes for all our cycling clothing and mountain bike clothing. Once you’ve found the right size, continue to our cycling shop to complete your purchase.
