It seems like every jersey is marketed as being optimized for hot weather, but the same isn't really true for bib shorts. That seems silly, because bibs are just as important as a jersey, so it makes sense to us that Pearl Izumi made the Elite In R Cool Men's Bib Shorts to help you cool down during hot days in the saddle. The face fabric is made of ELITE Transfer In R Cool, a seriously advanced moisture wicking fabric that moves sweat instantly away from your skin, and treated with Coldblack technology, a finish that helps the fabric absorb 80% less sunlight than traditional fabrics, so you don't bake inside your shorts. Coldblack also offers up UPF 50 sun protection to save your skin from UV rays, and made the bibs from a lightweight mesh to help keep you cool.To keep you feeling good in the saddle, Pearl hooked the Elite up with its ELITE 3D chamois, which utilizes variable density padding to supply cushioning where you need and it and space where you don't. It's covered with a stretchy moisture wicking fabric that adjusts to your body and keeps you dry, and finished with carbon yarns that actively fight off bacteria, so odor doesn't become an issue.
