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.
