The road can be a hot, unforgiving place, so having shorts that help prevent you sizzling in the saddle can be pretty nice. Pearl Izumi's Elite In-R-Cool Cut Men's Shorts are all about lowering the temperature of your saddle-bound bits, with the built-in cooling technology of Pearl's Elite Transfer In-R-Cool fabric. It's designed to pull moisture away from your skin and move it quickly to the outer surface of the short, where it can evaporate, and has been finished with Coldblack technology, which reflects up to 80% of the sun's rays, even when it's used on black fabric.
If cooling's once side of the coin, comfort is the other. Pearl has changed up the hem on the Elite, folding it over to reduce pinching and lining it with a silicone gripper to keep it locked in place. The built-in Elite 3D chamois provides breathable, stretchy comfort and ergonomic padding courtesy of its Pressure Relief Technology. Pearl also incorporated carbon yarns, which help fight off odor and regulate temperature.
