Description

No sweat.

Knowing that wind and rain often accompany your cold weather rides, Pearl Izumi built a new collection around its advanced Barrier fabric technology. The Elite Thermal Barrier Bib Tights are right at the top of this line, serving to be your lower-body protection against all of the adverse-weather cards that Mother Nature's been hiding up her sleeve.

For the construction of the tights, Pearl Izumi incorporated panels of both its Elite Thermal Fleece and Elite Barrier fabric. Elite Thermal Fleece 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 to insulate your leg muscles. The Transfer fabric is known for its exceptional moisture management, which works by pulling sweat away from your skin to the quick-drying outer-surface fabric. This material earned its reputation of setting the standard for moisture management fabrics, largely because it's the foundation for the breathable, wicking fabrics used in the majority of Pearl Izumi's spring/summer jerseys. A lightweight thermal fleece material was then blended with the Transfer, providing just the right amount of insulating protection. Elite Barrier fabric panels were also strategically placed throughout, serving to block the wind and to repel water.

Moving up from the legs, Pearl Izumi constructed the bib uppers 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.

The elasticity in the panels, along with 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 and Barrier fabrics, the smooth flatlock stitching used to join the tights' panels further reduces any friction at the seams.

The tights 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 in order to optimize riding comfort, blood flow, and thermo-regulation.

The tights were finished off with eight-inch lower-leg zippers that flow into the contoured leg openings. With the zippers featuring internal draft flaps, and the leg openings providing added coverage over your shoes and booties, your lower-legs and feet retain warmth and stay shielded from the elements. Additionally, silicone grippers at the ankles keep the tights securely in place, and reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light riding conditions.

The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Barrier Bib Tights are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the color Black/black.
