Louisville, Colo. (April 26, 2015)- Pearl Izumi, maker of performance ride footwear and apparel, announces its Spring 2016 Pursuit and Escape collection, now available at Pearl Izumi retailers and online at the fully-redesigned,

Inspired by designs for world-class cyclists, Pursuit apparel is defined by its cutting edge construction, advanced aerodynamics and contour fit. It is engineered for those who want to push the limits and squeeze everything out of every second.

Built to be different, Pearl Izumi Escape performance pieces focus on versatile designs and high quality materials. It is crafted for those who roam instead of race, and explore instead of chase.

“Before sketching a single design, choosing a fabric or sewing a single stitch, we started with the single most important thing: Why you ride,” said Pearl Izumi RIDE manager, Andrew Hammond. “Are you riding to accomplish specific goals, or do you ride to connect with people and places? We’ve created apparel to meet both rider’s needs.”

Pearl Izumi’s new website offers an enhanced shopping experience that intuitively walks users through the Pursuit and Escape experience and directs them to the best apparel options that originate from the foundation of “Why you ride”.
