Stay cool and standout.
You might not notice it over pre-race jitters, but everyone, including yourself, is wearing black. Black speed suits, black jerseys, and black shorts simply dominate any triathlon. Pearl Izumi's Elite In-R-Cool LTD Tri Shorts, however, add a nice hit of color that not only breaks up the sea of black, but is also designed to cool, dry quickly, and support your muscle groups during competition.
Unlike common dark textiles, which absorb heat, Izumi's Coldblack-treated Elite Tranfer In-R-Cool fabric has a UPF 50+ rating. And, in addition to this, it actually reflect the sun's radiant energy. This reduces the fabrics surface temperature in order to avoid your overheating during the ride and run stages on hot, sunny days. Also keeping you cool is Pearl Izumi's proprietary blend of nylon, elastane, and polyester. This engineered knit produces an outer-surface that's textured for both breathability and to accelerate moisture transfer away from the skin. By keeping your skin cool and dry, you'll experience both irritation-free pedaling and running.
Providing a lightly compressive fit that maximizes muscle efficiency, the Elite In-R-Cool shorts' multi-panel design allows you to spin with consistent power. It also ensures that the Elite In-R-Cool shorts provide the greatest degree of mobility by working with the Transfer fabrics natural stretch in order to eliminate binding.
And for further comfort, Izumi also included its TRI quick-dry chamois. This insert has been constructed with a variable density padding that's contoured for an anatomically correct fit. However, while the chamois provides the necessary support for the cycling leg, it's not so bulky that it'll interfere with either the run or swim. Additionally, as touted by its name, the chamois is also quick-drying for comfort post T1.
The Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool LTD Tri Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Slash Screaming Yellow and Big IP Black.
