Wet-weather cycling companion.
New for the 2015 collection, the Pearl Izumi Men's Select Barrier WxB Pants seal out drizzly, rain-soaked conditions when you're riding cross-town and commuting to work. Its 2.5-layer membrane is both waterproof and fully breathable, keeping you dry from outside rain and road spray, but also facilitating the evaporation of built-up water vapor resulting from internal perspiration. So, not only will you feel pleasantly dry from Mother Nature's oncoming deluge, but you'll also avoid the dreaded cold, clammy feel that's associated with less breathable pants. Plus, its seams are fully sealed, preventing outside moisture from seeping inside and dampening your skin.
Its revised, bike-specific fit is more relaxed than your standard cycling fare (i.e., Lycra) for full freedom of movement. Reflective elements stand out when you're riding after dark, offering extra visibility for enhanced safety. Adjustable hook-and-loop waist adjusters dial in a secure, non-slip fit without pinching or uncomfortable pressure points. Other key features include leg zips that run just below the knee for easy on and off, with a two-position hook-and-loop adjustment for a tailored fit with your preferred cycling footwear.
