No chamois, no problem.

Pearl Izumi designed its new Elite Thermal Bib Tights with layering in mind. Besides being constructed with advanced fabrics that work to keep you warm and dry, the bib tights were built without a chamois, allowing you to choose exactly what type of shorts and layering system to wear underneath.

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 in order 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 from your skin to the quick-drying outer-surface of the material. This fabric 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. 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.

The elasticity in the panels, along with 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 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 keep you visible to motorists in low-light riding conditions.

The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Bib Tights are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the color Black/black. Please note that these bib tights do not include a chamois.

Great Cool Riding Tights

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I received these tonight via UPS from competitivecyclist.com today and decided to use them right away. It was 25 degrees with a 20mph wind (making it feel like 11 degrees). It never gets that cold in Tennessee (so I did not buy this for that weather) but I must say that they did the job well.

I am 5' 11", 195lbs, 42 chest, 34 waist, 32 inseam. I bought size Large and it fits very well - might have been an inch long, but i loved it because it covered the tops of my shoes and stopped the wind.

They are lined in a thin fleece from the bottom of the leg up to where the straps begin - so a little over the waist. They do NOT have a chamois which is great for 2 reasons: you can wear your regulars bibs underneath them for warmth and padding and for me, i can also use them for running. The leg cuff has light elastic and a short zipper that is covered so it does not rub. I am very happy with my purchase.
