PRO Softshell Lobster Glove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Pearl Izumi Lobster Glove is an insulated, wind and waterproof split-fingered glove that combines the warmth of a mitt with the dexterity of a glove. After many years of use, primarily as a cyclist, I've found them to be a great piece of clothing for other uses. Fourteen years ago I was an avid road biker, riding in all four seasons, as long as roads were passable. This caused me to ride many days in sub-freezing temperatures. Enter the Pearl Izumi Lobster Gloves. I would regularly ride using… Full review

Peak XC

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I race in Xterra Tri's and have used the Salomon XA Pro's for the last few years. I decided to give these a shot to mix it up.

I run a lot of rocky, root-covered, hilly, single-track in northern Kentucky, and the syncroSeek 2s are my normal "long distance" shoes when it comes to trails.

I recently used both pairs to complete the Dances With Dirt 50-mile trail race in Gnaw Bone, Indiana. I changed shoes and socks at the 24.5 mile aid station, giving each pair… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars This isn't a trail runner, but it's great on the pavement. I run on a dirt levy from time to time. My only concern when I do is that the Guides have a wide channel under the heel that picks up fairly sizeable pebbles. That's annoying. But overall, I love this shoe. It's out-of-the-box comfortable. I'm on my second pair (I ground my first pair into oblivion). I'm a big runner, so I have knee concerns. The Guide provides enough cushioning that I've never had serious knee issues, even when I've pushed… Full review
