The Pearl Izumi In-R-Cool Tri Shorts Long are designed for both training and racing. Pearl Izumi has now enhanced their very popular Elite Tri Short with In-R-Cool® technology, taking this classic style to a new level in terms of technology, performance and value. This long version is great for those who prefer more leg coverage (they have about 2" more coverage). One thing about tri shorts is they are not only for triathlon training/racing. We have found riders preferring a thin chamois/pad tend to like tri shorts over traditional cycling shorts.
Elite Transfer fabric with In-R-Cool® retains its fantastic durability and now features built in technology to reflect the sun's rays and reduce fabric surface temperature by up to 35º F /14º C under direct sunlight. In-R-Cool helps to regulate body temperature to get more performance and enjoyment out of hot weather riding. Recent studies are showing keeping the body cooler can boost performance making these Elite In-R-Cool shorts your secret weapon against sunny, hot weather.
For comfort, Pearl includes a low-profile anatomic Tri chamois with quick-dry foam and maximum breathability. Smooth, breathable-face fabric features active carbon yarns for thermal regulation and anti-odor protection.
