PEARL iZUMi was built on performance fibers.

Now we’re using one grown on the simple blend of sunshine, water, grass, and air.

High-performance natural and renewable alternatives like Merino wool are helping achieve our commitment to using recycled, renewable, or organic materials in 90% of our products by 2022.

Moving to sustainable materials doesn’t require compromising performance. Through research at the ACE Climatic Windtunnel in Canada, and partnering with The Woolmark Company, we’ve developed breakthrough fabrics that combine Merino wool with synthetic fibers made from recycled water bottles.

The incredible facility at Ontario Tech University allows us to set wind speed, humidity, temperature, and solar intensity to replicate real-world riding conditions.
