Help lead the pack with a P.R.O. Leader.

New for 2010 is Pearl Izumi’s P.R.O. Leader bib short. The P.R.O. Leader bibs take the lessons learned from the Garmin-Transitions team bibs where Pearl Izumi’s P.R.O. Aero fabric provides an aerodynamic edge. Imagine a fabric that cuts drag by 15 percent and what that could do for you when your nose is in the wind.

The P.R.O. Aero fabric has a rippled surface to reduce drag and speed the flow of air over the body. Think of it as Lycra’s answer to the golf ball. P.R.O. Aero fabric gets In-R-Cool™ treatment to hasten the movement of perspiration away from your body, keeping you cooler as you ride.

P.R.O. Transfer fabric makes up the rest of the bibs and provides incredible form-following stretch while maintaining fatigue-delaying compression. Both materials get Pearl Izumi’s coldblack technology, yet another fabric treatment, this one engineered to reduce the surface temperature of the fabric by as much as 35 degrees in direct sunlight. The upshot? You stay cooler, allowing your body to work more efficiently.

The best feature of these bibs is hidden from view. Pearl Izumi’s 4D Chamois features four layers of padding (13mm thick) sculpted according to Pearl Izumi’s PRT (pressure relief technology) to increase comfort and blood flow, while minimizing pressure on sensitive tissues. The pre-shaped pad features a dramatic curve to it in order to follow the natural contours of your undercarriage as closely as possible. The breathable pad also features four-way stretch technology to make it follow your movements with no binding or chafing.

Silicone leg grippers keep the legs of the bibs from riding up and flatlock stitching provides a smooth seam for optimal durability and comfort. To keep the bib as lightweight and breathable as possible, it is cut from Direct-Vent mesh.

The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Leader bib short is available in two colors: white and black and five sizes: S-XXL.

  • Anatomically correct, pre-shaped P.R.O. seamless 4D chamois provides you with a breathable, moisture-wicking, and stretchy chamois for comfort
  • Direct-vent panel provide airflow and temperature regulation
  • P.R.O. Aero panels with In-R-Cool technology are strategically placed to help reduce drag
  • Chamois face fabric uses active carbon yarn for desirable thermal regulation and antimicrobial protection
  • Silicon leg grippers with welded construction keep this bib from ridding up
  • Welded plush elastic at waist for comfort

Best Bib I own!

These are really comfy, fit is perfect - light and flexible. My favorite Bib so far - I need to order another pair! Fit is snug - 6'2" and 27 XXL is fine

Nice bib shorts

Fit, fabric, and function are top notch. The mesh upper seems lighter and cooler than the regular P.R.O. series. Looking forward to the Coldblack material when it gets really hot. Euro sizing, runs a size or a little more smaller than say PI Elite or P.R.O. I bought a second pair.

Fabric treated with Coldblack technology reflects the sun's rays and keeps you the same temp as if you were wearing white!

Love the low profile gripper

Besides having tons of tech with Coldblack technology and aero fabric tested with the Garmin team, this short fits great. I especially like the low profile gripper.

Top quality fit, style and performance

With a combination of great fit ergonomics, a 4D Chamois and a sleek look.

These bibs are fantastic.

Pair them with a pro leader jersey for mad style and performance!

Cold black and aero stretch fabric

These black shorts will reflect UV rays to the same degree as white thanks to Coldblack technology. You'll stay cool without being see through... Also the aero fabric on the lower thigh was developed for the Garmin-Slipstream team and is as fast as fabric gets.
