Description

Ride like a 'pro.'

You'd be hard-pressed to find many cyclists who actually enjoy adding bulk to their streamlined bib shorts with warmers and tights. But, when the cold weather hits, it means that we're forced to either layer up or head indoors. Fortunately, Pearl Izumi makes the cold-weather transition as smooth as possible with its new P.R.O. Thermal Bib Knickers. You receive the same advanced paneling that comprises Pearl's entire P.R.O. bib collection, along with its top-end chamois, insulating fabrics, and versatile 3/4-leg design.

Pearl Izumi constructed the bulk of the bib knickers using a combination of two distinct technical fabrics. The first is P.R.O. Thermal, which is a high-end blend of two of Pearl Izumi's advanced materials. It relies on the exceptional moisture transporting properties of its Transfer fabric to keep you dry, while the lightweight brushed fleecy interior insulates 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. 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 its lightweight Direct-Vent 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 fabric panels allows the bib knickers to follow your movements in the saddle. This means that the fit is free from any bunching, pinching, or chafing while tucked 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 P.R.O. Thermal fabric, the smooth flatlock stitching used to join the bib knickers' panels further reduces any friction at the seams.

The P.R.O. knickers were built around Izumi's seamless 4D Chamois. This insert incorporates 12mm variable density padding throughout its three-layer construction. The new foam technology means that it's 35% lighter and thinner than previous generations, while still maintaining its pre-shaped, four-way stretch anatomic shape. The chamois also incorporates the Izumi's pressure relief technology (PRT) and active carbon yarns in order to optimize comfort, blood flow, and thermo-regulation.

Pearl Izumi finished the bib knickers with reflective elements for heightened visibility to motorists in low-light riding conditions.

The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Thermal Bib Knickers are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the color Black.

Very impressed with this knicker

Bought the P.R.O.s to ride in the Pacific Northwest during late fall and early winter. As soon as I put them on I knew they were something special. I am 6' 3" and 185 pounds. The large fit like a glove. Wore them on a 30 miler in 53 degree weather and they were fantastic. Great compression and no binding anywhere. The chamois is excellent. These knickers can definitely handle any distance without difficulty. As a recreational cyclist who averages 400 - 500 miles a month, I usually don't spend money for high end gear. I thought the Pearl Izumi Elites were just fine until I tried these babies on. Major upgrade and definitely worth the money. Highly recommend.
