When the asphalt turns soft from a relentless sun, Pearl Izumi's P. R. O. In-R-Cool Shorts' heat-reflective technologies step in to help cool things down. This is partially due to the Coldblack, that is found in Pearl's lightweight and highly-elastic Transfer In-R-Cool fabric, which reduces absorption of sun rays. This means not only excellent UFP ratings, but improved heat management too. Additionally, these shorts use Pearl Izumi's Transfer Dry fabric, which complements the In-R-Cool with Minerale. This is a porous, highly-absorbent yarn infused with crushed volcanic rock to pull moisture away from the skin, accelerate dry time, and combat odors. Moving on, the multi-panel design provides an anatomic fit, with structured leg openings that wrap and support your muscles. The inseam measures 9 inches (size Medium) with silicone hems to grip warmers and keep panels securely in place. Finally, no shorts are complete without a quality chamois, which is something Pearl Izumi's well versed in. On these shorts, the Anatomic P. R. O. Seamless 1:1 insert incorporates variable density padding throughout its three-layer construction. The foam technology means that it's lighter and substantially thinner than previous generations. It maintains a pre-shaped, four-way stretch anatomic shape, and the chamois also incorporates Izumi's Pressure Relief Technology (PRT) and active carbon yarns in order to optimize riding comfort, blood flow, and thermo- regulation. The Pearl Izumi P. R. O. In-R-Cool Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in four colors: Black, Black/mykonos blue, Black/true red, and Black/stillwater.
