Pearl Izumi Size Guide

Pearl Izumi, despite its originally Japanese heritage, is sensibly sized for most European body sizes. It is now based in North America and offers a variety of cuts from relatively relaxed to race fit.

Follow the size guide below and you won't go far wrong, although if you prefer cycling kit to more relaxed you should err towards the larger of two sizes. If you are still unsure, feel free to contact us.
