Pearl Izumi was among the first to offer women's clothing designed by women. And, a quick look at the shape and features crafted into the P. R. O. Leader Women's Short Sleeve Jersey proves that they indeed have put a lot of know how and riding time into their creations. Pearl Izumi uses its patented P. R. O. Transfer fabric, the same advanced materials as its men's counterpart, with a feminine fit and spin on appearance. This fabric employs a one way capillary action and hydrophobic fibers to draw the moisture away from the skin. Dry skin translates into core comfort, and the fibers touching your skin become the first line of defense against discomfort. This is ideal for hot, sunny rides and what also makes this jersey perfect for those conditions is Pearl Izumi's In R Cool Technology. This built in technology reflects the sun's rays and reduces the surface temperature of the fabric by up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit in direct sunlight, so you can sport dark, intense colors without melting down on a sunny ride. Pearl Izumi also included welded Direct Vent panels under the arms to offer extra ventilation and prevent the accumulation of sweat and odors. Pearl Izumi has specially designed the 3 in 2 back pocket construction, with a nod to the ladies' smaller backs. This includes two pockets that carry big items like your wallet, pump, gel packs and phone, while a third pocket with a zipper is hidden within the two so that you can keep keys and other small essentials safe and separated. Sublimated graphics on the raglan sleeves ensure that the P. R. O. Women's Leader Jersey will look as fresh after a couple of seasons as it does when you first try it on. The usual well placed Pearl Izumi reflective elements keep you safe in low light. The Pearl Izumi P. R. O. Women's Leader Short Sleeve Jersey comes in BlackWhite, BlackScuba Blue and BlackOrchid. It is available in X Small through XX Large.
