If you're looking for a simple, straightforward, no-nonsense pair of shorts, you need look no further than the Elite In-R-Cool Women's Short Cut Shorts. The shorts have been constructed from Pearl Izumi's Elite Transfer fabric, which wears three hats during warm-weather rides.
By this, we mean that it reflects heat, transfers moisture away from your body, and is exceptionally breathable. To beat the heat, Pearl treated the bulk of the fabric with an application called Coldblack. Essentially, Coldblack technology allows black fabric to reflect the sun's radiant energy as if it were a light-colored fabric. The differences between fabrics with Coldblack and those without are staggering. Those with Coldblack reflect up to 80% of the sun's radiant energy, while those without it absorb up to 90%. Incidentally, it also blocks UV rays at a minimum of 30 UPF. For support and to keep the these shorts from migrating or pinching, Pearl uses an anatomical cut, flatlock seams, and wide elastic leg bands coupled with silicone grippers.
These shorts feature the Pearl Izumi Elite 3D Chamois. This breathable, four-way stretch chamois is built with Pearl Izumi's Pressure Relief Technology, which takes pressure off of sensitive nerves and blood vessels. As a result, this pre-shaped chamois provides enhanced bloodflow, vibration dampening, and comfort.
The Elite In-R-Cool Short Cut Shorts - Women's come in Black and are available in six sizes from X-Small though XX-Large.
