Pearl Izumi Womens Elite Escape 3QTR Tight

A well conceived and executed cycling knicker can be a versatile and well worn piece of clothing. Summer weight knickers, or 3/4 tight, can be worn over long months of the year, and with the high breathability, mild compression, and overall anatomic performance, can easily be used for indoor cycling classes as well. The Pearl Izumi Women's ELITE Escape 3/4 Tight is just such a knicker. Add in a little extra length, UPF 50+ protection, truly effective chamois pad and a great comfort fit, and you have a piece you will want to have more than one of, as you will be using it nearly year round.

The Women's ELITE Escape 3/4 Tight strategically uses two standout Pearl fabrics, the P.R.O. and SELECT Transfer material that provides superior comfort and moisture management in panels and locations where both can be most effective. The panels are cut and sewn for wonderfully fluid pedaling action and muscle support. As the inseam is just past the knee and onto the upper calf at 19" (Medium), the flexibility and pressure on the knee are crucial to comfort. The waistband carries that idea to the best extreme, with a wide, flat, soft, yet supportive yoga-style design. It stays in place above the hips, is cut lower in the front and higher in the back, and works beautifully.

Of course true comfort in a cycling bottom starts and ends with the chamois pad. Here Pearl uses the denser padding of the Women's ELITE Escape 1:1™ Chamois. You get more support, longevity, and pressure relief ideal for longer rides or the hard grind of indoor cycling. The pad itself is smooth next to the skin, with a free floating, 4-way stretch top sheet and 2-layer suspension core for plush comfort, zero friction, and excellent moisture management. This is the perfect chamois for this knicker.

The finishing touches such as stitching, silicone/elastic leg grippers, and BioViz reflective elements for low-light visibility, are all characteristic for Pearl, like standard features that other brands call out as features. The Women's ELITE Escape 3/4 Tight delivers on every feature and facet, and will become a favorite garment. We highly recommend it for it's overall performance, flattering fit and design, durability, versatility, and functional technical features.
