More than 50 years ago in Tokyo, a father produced Japan's first bicycle racing apparel for his son, a promising racer. Today, Pearl Izumi USA, Inc. has evolved into the world's foremost line of technical, performance-oriented sports apparel.

The name Pearl Izumi USA, Inc. is derived from the gem "pearl" and an area of Japan known for its clear water "Izumi." Literally translated, the name means, "fountain of pearls."

The line has been distributed in the United States since 1981. Pearl Izumi USA, Inc. sponsored the US National Team (the team that won nine gold medals in the 1984 Olympic Games) and several major trade teams during the mid-eighties. Through these associations and the actual performance of Pearl Izumi USA, Inc. products, the line enjoys an almost cult-type following.
