The flagship Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Leader Bib Short is the bib of choice for riders placing a premium on comfort and big-budget pro team performance. Pearl adds In-R-Cool® technology and the P.R.O. Seamless 4D Chamois® to create the most technically advanced bib short in Pearl Izumi's line.
P.R.O. Transfer fabric with In-R-Cool® technology reflects 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 and reduce body temperature up to 5ºF to get more performance for hot weather riding. The upper is made with Minerale to provide optimal moisture transfer, dry time and odor absorbance.
The PRO 4D chamois is made with three layers and 12mm thick. It uses new foam technology for a 35% lighter and thinner chamois. It is pre-shaped and curved to the natural anatomic shape of the rider. A seamless and breathable 4-Way Stretch technology adjusts to the body and moves moisture away. Pressure Relief Technology (PRT) optimizes riding comfort, blood flow and athletic performance while active carbon yarns improve thermoregulation and eliminate static-induced fatigue.
