Beating the heat.
Although counter intuitive at first, tossing on a baselayer tank underneath your jersey may be the best summer day decision you'll ever make, and what better way to start than with the Pearl Izumi Transfer Sleeveless Baselayer for Women. This lightweight and ultra-breathable tank sits close against your skin and pulls away moisture the second you start to sweat, keeping you cooler than before, so you can push harder in the heat. Pearl Izumi fashions the Transfer Sleeveless Baselayer from PRO Transfer fabric, quickly grabbing your sweat and ushering it away from your skin, with help from a contoured, stretchy fit with minimal seaming that stays comfortable for hours in the saddle.
Pearl also adds activated charcoal to the polyester blend to improve the fabric's drying time, making the Transfer even more adept at managing your body temperature on summer rides that include sweating on a long, hot climb then ducking into a shady, chilly descent. According to Pearl, the Transfer SL's ultralight construction technically categorizes it as a summer base layer, but we'd also layer it under our early- and late-season kit to help deal with the shoulder seasons' fluctuating temperatures and conditions.
