You climb, and so does the temperature.

There's a variety of hot-weather jerseys out there, but there are far fewer bottoms designed for those sweltering mid-summer days. The Pearl Izumi Men's Elite In-R-Cool Bib Shorts, however, are just such a pair. Designed with unique fabric and paneling for hot days, the In-R-Cool shorts may become your best friend when the temps are climbing as much as you are.

Unlike common dark textiles, which absorb heat, Coldblack-treated fabrics are UV-blocking (UPF 50+) and actually reflect the sun's radiant energy. This allows you to avoid overheating during physical activity on hot, sunny days by keeping the surface temperature of the fabric lower. Also keeping you cool is Pearl Izumi's proprietary blend of nylon, elastane, and polyester. This mix results in an engineered outer surface that's textured for enhanced temperature management., Additionally, this breathable knit accelerates moisture transfer away from the skin in order to maintain core comfort. Extra ventilation in the form of direct-vent panels and a mesh upper also provide airflow, while ensuring a high level of stability that's free from pinching.

For long-distance comfort, Pearl Izumi spec's its anatomically-shaped, three-layer 3D Elite chamois. This insert's density varies from a maximum of 13mm to a minimum of seven in order to relieve pressure and permit bloodflow where it matters most. The pad is covered with a moisture wicking, four-way stretch fabric that adjusts to your body as you pedal. Additionally, it contains active carbon yarns that assist with thermo-regulation and resist bacteria.

An eight-panel anatomical design provides a lightly compressive fit that maximizes your muscle efficiency, allowing you to spin with consistent power. It also ensures that the Elite In-R-Cool bib shorts provide the greatest degree of mobility by eliminating restriction.

Good PI Bib Shorts - Elite In-R-Cool

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fit: true to size.
Quality: very good entry into mid-range of bib short choices.
I wear these at least once a week for a 25-30 mile regular route. So far, so good. A little wear on the saddle contact spots, but nothing out of the ordinary. They work well in the Florida heat and mild winters.
I'm a "Clydesdale" at 5'10", 200#, 36" waist and Large is spot on for me.
Catch these on sale and you'll get a strong bang for your buck.
