The name PEARL iZUMi is composed of the English word "Pearl" and the Japanese word "Izumi" - meaning the gemstone and an area in Japan known for its clear water. Literally, the translation means "pearl fountain". PEARL iZUMi's success story began more than 50 years ago, when a father in Tokyo started making cycling clothes for his son - a promising racer. In the mid-1980s, the company sponsored the U.S. national team and supplied them with sportswear at the 1984 Olympics. Today, PEARL iZUMi is one of the world's leading brands for technically efficient and high-quality sportswear. At PEARL iZUMi bike fans can find cycling clothing, cycling shoes, helmets, arm and leg warmers. So everything you need for the sport on two wheels.
