After 15 years of ownership, bike giant Shimano sold PEARL iZUMi to United Sports Brands last May .

Called Horizons, the limited edition run is intended to be a “sneak peek” into PEARL iZUMi’s future. (No word yet if we’ll get more psychedelic offerings .)
The new road kit includes a PRO Mesh Jersey and a PRO Bib Short, both available for men and women. There’s also a Men’s Attack Air Jersey and a Transfer Cycling Cap.
