Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Bib Short - Women's $0.00
What the cool kids are wearing.
When summer temperatures transform from warm to brutal, pull on your Pearl Izumi Women's Elite In-R-Cool Bib Shorts. Pearl's Transfer In-R-Cool fabric is treated with Coldblack, providing the balmy-weather-cooling capacity necessary for long hours of summer riding.
Unlike common dark textiles, which absorb heat, Coldblack-treated fabrics are UV-blocking (UPF 50+) and actually reflect the sun's radiant energy. This allows you to avoid overheating during physical activity on hot, sunny days by keeping the surface temperature of the fabric lower. Also keeping you cool is Pearl Izumi's proprietary blend of nylon, elastane, and polyester. This mix results in an engineered outer surface that's textured for enhanced temperature management., Additionally, this breathable knit accelerates moisture transfer away from the skin in order to maintain core comfort. Extra ventilation in the form of direct-vent panels and a mesh upper also provide superior airflow, while ensuring a high level of structure stability that's free from pinching.
For long distance comfort, Pearl Izumi spec's its women-specific, three-layer 3D Elite chamois. This insert's density varies from a maximum of 13mm to a minimum of seven in order to relieve pressure and permit blood flow where it matters most. The pad is covered with a moisture wicking, four-way stretch fabric that adjusts to your body as you pedal. Additionally, it contains active carbon yarns that assist with thermo-regulation and resist bacteria.
An eight-panel anatomical design provides a lightly compressive fit that maximizes your muscle efficiency, allowing you to spin with consistent power. It also ensures that the Elite In-R-Cool bib shorts provide the greatest degree of mobility by eliminating restriction.
The Pearl Izumi Women's Elite In-R-Cool Bib Shorts are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the color Black.

- How to Measure:
- For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
- Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
- Natural Waist:
- Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
- Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
- Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
- Measure from the center of your back to your wrist with arms held out.
What community has to say
Good everyday bibs
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are my go-to bibs for weekly rides. They are comfortable, and the chamois isn't too thick. PI tried making these easy to drop the bottom w/ a bra-strap type release at the back, unless you are uber-flexible, I don't see how you would be able to unhook/rehook it w/ the straps over your shoulders. These have held up well to over a year's regular use.
