Pearl Izumi P.R.O. LTD Bib Short - Men's - $174.95

When a certain noted automobile manufacturer offered its first car in black -- and only black -- it was for economic reasons. Cycling, on the other hand, has been plagued by black shorts since their inception -- for no good reason. Pearl Izumi, thankfully, offers a line of LTD products like this P.R.O. Bib Short to break free from the darkness. Sharing construction and materials with the P.R.O. Bibshorts, the LTD turns hot and humid summer rides into a comfortable, ventilated joy with a splash of color. This includes Pearl's top of the line P.R.O. Seamless 4D Chamois, so you know your rear will be ready for whatever the road and your riding companions can throw at you. This chamois is Pearl's most advanced, suited for enthusiasts and pros alike -- anyone on the bike four or five days a week. And you'll be impressed to know that this iteration of the chamois still has the variable density foam, but it's 35% lighter and thinner than before. The three layers of padding make it possible to place material where it is needed. You won't have to worry about chafing since it is seamless and has a four way breathable stretch to avoid any moisture build-up. Pearl Izumi also included their Pressure Relief Technology (PRT), which means that the insert has been specifically designed to relieve those most tender spots and allow the blood to circulate. They also added thermo-regulating carbon yarns, which prevent the friction from developing. As for the bib legs, Pearl Izumi has made use of the same advanced materials that they have lavished on the P.R.O. In-R-Cool Short Sleeve Jersey. By integrating both its Minerale and In-R-Cool technologies into the Transfer fabric that is used for its bibs, Pearl Izumi ensured that the fabric will reflect the sun to keep you cooler and simultaneously work to wick the sweat that does develop. Integrating Minerale boasts 15 times the typical poly weave surface area, which facilitates wicking and evaporation of moisture. - $174.95
