Pearl Izumi crafts its Men's ELITE Pursuit Graphic Jersey for riders looking for a race performance top during the long, hot days of summer. As such, the jersey's material is designed to keep you cool so you can save all your energy for an attack to stick. The lightweight Elite Transfer fabric provides exceptional moisture management, while Pearl Izumi's exclusive Ice-fil technology keeps you operating at an optimum temperature.
Elite Transfer fabric features a knit surface that continuously wicks moisture promoting evaporation of your sweat. And, in addition to this, the material's Ice-fil treatment has been designed to cool the surface of your skin. It works by infusing xylitol, what's responsible for that cooling sensation in chewing gum, into the fabric's finish so when you sweat, the fibers react, converting the sweat into a refrigerant according to Pearl Izumi.
If things heat up too much or you have a long climb to tame, a front zipper lets you quickly dump heat for quick ventilation. The zipper is the full-length variety and sports a semi-auto lock that can be flipped up and tugged open with one hand for easy operation.
Toting ride essentials is provided by three ample-sized rear pockets. Pearl uses a bellow style construction that keeps them from sagging when loaded, and are conveniently placed so you can grab a quick snack without slowing down the bunch.
The jersey has a form-fit, with an aero-enhancing cut. The graphics manage to pull off classy and striking at the same time and pair well with Elite Pursuit bib shorts.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit Jersey is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Rogue Red/Port Diffuse, Screaming Yellow Diffuse, Smoked Pearl/Black Diffuse, and Atomic Blue Diffuse.
