PEARL IZUMI SPECIALS
Riding in so-called perfect weather sounds ideal, but it has a down side, too -- hot, sunny conditions can lead to overheating and fatigue. Pearl Izumi developed the Elite Pursuit Short Sleeve Jersey for those who do a lot of riding in cloudless, shade-less environments, designing it specifically to reflect the sun's rays to keep you cooler and fresher.
The Elite Pursuit Jersey features the lightweight Elite Transfer fabric that offers exceptional moisture management, while the special In-R-Cool technology acts as a reflective element to reduce surface temperatures on the fabric by up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit in direct sunlight and provide UPF-50-rated protection. In addition to its wicking abilities, the Elite Transfer fabric dries quickly for maximum comfort.
To further ensure your comfort in the blazing sun, Pearl Izumi has also placed Direct-Vent mesh panels under the arms to offer extra ventilation and prevent moisture build-up. Easy all-out cooling has been made possible by the full length zipper.
Three back pockets have been provided on the Elite Pursuit Jersey so that you can bring along a repair kit, wallet, gel packs and CO2 cartridges. A fourth sweat-proof pocket keeps your phone accessible and safe from damaging moisture. Extra support at the back pockets will keep them from sagging when fully loaded for a five-hour ride, and an elasticized gripper on the back keeps the jersey fully in place. The usual well-placed Pearl Izumi reflective elements will help keep you visible at dusk and later.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit Short Sleeve Jersey comes in True Red/Black, Black/Yellow, White/Black, Black/White and True Blue/White. It is available in Small through XX-Large.
