Pearl Izumi Transfer Lite Women's Base Layer $44.95
Layer to keel cool.
It might seem counterintuitive, but adding a layer during summer months can actually help to keep you cool. However, note that we said 'can,' as it takes a highly technical fabric, like what's found on Pearl Izumi's Transfer Lite Women's Base Layer, to pull it off.
Making use of the P.R.O. Transfer fabric with Minerale, the Transfer Lite base layer boasts the most advanced warm-weather materials in the Izumi line. The Transfer fabric features a porous yarn structure that gives it eight times the surface area of typical poly weave. Accordingly, this facilitates the wicking and evaporation of moisture. Additionally, the Minerale treatment that's permanently added to the Transfer fabric utilizes natural volcanic minerals in order to boost evaporative cooling and to fight odors. In fact, Izumi estimates that Minerale dries 50% faster than standard polyester fabrics. Ultimately, the aforementioned characteristics lend themselves to lowering your skin's surface temperature, effectively cooling you during your ride.
Pearl Izumi has paid just as much attention to the fit of the base layer, since the last thing you want is a floppy, oversized undergarment. This means that the it features a close, anatomic fit that lies nicely under a jersey.
The Pearl Izumi Transfer Lite Women's Base Layer is available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Black and White.
