Early morning can be the only time you have to train, but dang, the air is frosty when the sun is still rising. Luckily, every problem has a solution, and pulling on the Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Cycling Tights is your answer to getting those base miles in. Made from proprietary fabrics that absorb odor, wick moisture, and warm the body, the Elite Thermal Cycling Tights will keep you pedaling through the worst that winter has to offer.

Pearl Izumi's Elite Thermal Cycling Tights use an anatomical eight-panel construction made from the exclusive Elite Thermal Fleece fabric. This fabric was strategically selected in order to ensure a hand-in-hand system of warming insulation and effective moisture transfer, and the construction provides a consistent internal temperature. To keep you riding comfortably, the tights feature Pearl's anatomically designed Elite 3D Chamois. The chamois uses  variable density padding that's been pre-shaped to enhance blood flow. Additionally, its breathable, four-way stretch material creates an abrasion-free surface that conforms to the body and moves moisture away.

To ensure a quality fit, the Thermal tights use an eight-panel construction that allows full leg articulation throughout cycling movements. This design also reduces abrasion that's typically caused by slack and bunched material from poor fit and fabric hold. To help hold everything in place, the tights use a silicone gripper at the ankle and a flattering wide waistband. Pearl Izumi also added 360 degree reflective accents for safer night riding.

The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Cycling Tights are available in sizes from X-Small to XX-Large, and in the color Black/black.

As Advertised and Expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 6"

Was hoping these lived up to their namesake's reputation and I am pleased. They are lightweight but give a surprising barrier to cold and wind in particular. With temps around 40f I'll include another insulating layer, but anything around 50 degrees these are fine by themselves.

B-Ready for the Long, Cold Road Ahead.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Not bad. Fairly good fit, though sloppy in the back, no big deal. Pretty good at windbreaking, but not as good as Gore's *Windstopper technology.
Pretty warm...these tights are actually heavier than all my other tights, even thicker than Gore's.
Length is good...ankle zips nice.
Chamois is a miss...again, a very personal preference.
All in All, not Giordana F.C.R., but for the $ they work.

Nice reflective elements on these P.I. tights. Not quite as good as Gore's, but way better than many other brands. Wish other bike-wear manufacturers would follow this lead and put more 'reflectors' on all their garments for better visibility.

love, love these. They are very warm and provide plenty of coverage on a 30 degree morning. Some reviews said they run small, my experience was the opposite. I am a small/medium so ordered the medium and it was extremely too big, the small fits with some room to spare
