Pearl Izumi relies on smart, simple design to keep its Quest Bib Short both high performance and low cost. The Quest uses time tested materials and a slick, 6 panel design to keep you cool during hot summer rides.The Quest Bib Short features flatlock seams to join its anatomic panels for reduced abrasion and irritation. The panels are constructed from Select Transfer, a fabric that is the foundation for all the moisture management fabrics used in much more expensive Pearl Izumi products. Its one way capillary action and hydrophobic fibers are engineered to quickly wick and evaporate moisture. The surface is also designed to be soft against your skin for undeniable all day comfort.The bibs are also Select Transfer. They feature Direct Vent panels to keep air flowing to cool your skin and move moisture away from your body. Adding to that comfort is Pearl's Tour 3D Chamois. Its multilayered construction supports without hindering bloodflow or restricting pedal strokes. This allows you to enjoy miles and miles of cycling minus the discomfort. To keep the Quest from migrating, Pearl Izumi uses silicone leg gripers and a wide pinch free waistband.
