Before there was a Pearl Izumi, there was a man and a bike. He rode that bike 38 miles a day, every day. Not for exercise or for the fun of it, but to deliver 90 pounds of clothing to his customers in a neighboring village.

The year: 1955. The man’s name: Kinji Shimizu. And in nine short years, he’d go from lugging clothing on a bike to redefining what every cyclist wore on them.

Over the next five decades, this obsessive approach led to innovation after innovation. Building the very foundation for everything we do today.
