KEEP WARM, NOT COLD.
Pearl Izumi designed its new Elite Thermal Bib Bib Tight to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable while out riding in both cool to cold weather conditions.
For the construction of the bib tights, Pearl Izumi used panels of its Elite Thermal Fleece fabric. This material is essentially two of Pearl Izumi's advanced materials in one. It relies on the exceptional moisture transporting properties of its Transfer fabric to keep you dry, while the lightweight brushed fleece interior helps insulate your leg muscles. The Transfer fabric is known for its exceptional moisture management, which works by pulling sweat from your skin to the quick-drying outer-surface. This material earned its reputation of setting the standard for moisture management fabrics, largely because it's the foundation for the breathable, wicking materials that are used in the majority of Pearl Izumi's jerseys. A lightweight thermal fleece material was then blended with the Transfer, providing just the right amount of insulating protection.
Moving up from the legs, Pearl Izumi constructed the bib portion with a lightweight mesh for added comfort and support. Together, these materials work as a system to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable during your early and late season rides. Both the elasticity in the panels and the constructed leg articulation allow the tights to follow your movements in the saddle. This means that the fit is free from any bunching, pinching, or chafing while in the cycling position. Pearl Izumi calls this its 'form fit,' which is cut to closely follow the contours of your body, while still providing a full-range of motion. Combined with the anatomic cut and elastic Elite Thermal fabric, the smooth flatlock stitching used to join the bib tights' panels further reduces any friction at the seams.
The bibs were built around Izumi's seamless Elite 3D Chamois. This insert incorporates 13mm variable density padding throughout its three-layer construction. The new foam technology means that it's lighter and thinner than previous generations, while still maintaining its pre-shaped, four-way stretch anatomic shape. The chamois also incorporates Izumi's pressure relief technology (PRT) and active carbon yarns to optimize riding comfort, blood flow, and thermo-regulation.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Bib Tights are available in six sizes from Small to 3X-Large.
