Although there has been a proliferation of ladies' bibs the past several years, the good old strapless short still can claim a space in our closets. On those days when we can expect to be making stops because we had too much coffee, or for hot rides when we want as little material on our torsos as possible, simple strapless shorts come in handy. Pearl Izumi recognizes this and so has designed the P.R.O. Leader Women's Shorts to offer high quality while eliminating the top. Pearl Izumi uses cutting-edge materials in the P.R.O. Leader Women's Shorts for top performance. Its patented P.R.O. Transfer fabric employs one-way capillary action and hydrophobic fibers to draw moisture away from the skin; and dry skin, in summer or winter, translates into core comfort. What makes these shorts perfect for hot, sunny days is the In-R-Cool technology. This built-in feature reflects the sun's rays to reduce the surface temperature of the fabric by up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit in direct sunlight. .Of course, Pearl Izumi has gone all-out on its chamois for the P.R.O. Leader Women's Shorts as well. By using its top-of-the-line Women's Anatomic P.R.O. Seamless 4D Chamois, Pearl Izumi guarantees all-day comfort for ladies who put in long hours in the saddle. With pads shaped to a woman's body and materials identical in quality to the men's version of the pad, the P.R.O. Seamless 4D Chamois will keep your undercarriage comfy and protected no matter the terrain. As with the men's version, the chamois makes use of its new foam that's 35% lighter and thinner; three layers of it is strategically placed to give you padding where you need it most. Pearl Izumi has also included their Pressure Relief Technology (PRT), which means that the insert has been specifically designed to relieve tender spots and allow the blood to circulate properly: no more numbness after one or two hours of sitting on the saddle. You won't have to worry about chafing since the chamois is seamless and features four-way breathable stretch to move with you; thermoregulating carbon yarns are also included in the top sheet to keep the friction from forming and inducing fatigue faster. Comfort and fit are paramount with the P.R.O. Leader Women's Shorts. Pearl Izumi has given them a wide waistband so that your tummy won't be squeezed, and the legs, which feature a nine-inch inseam, are held in place by a gripper-free double hem. This distributes the pressure from the hem across a wider area, to avoid unwanted bulges. The sublimated graphics on these shorts ensure that they'll look as slick and snazzy after a couple of seasons as they do the first time you try them on. The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Leader Women's Shorts are available in X-Small through XX-Large and come in a Black/White and a Black/Lime color combo.
