Better than a can of concentrated squall-be-gone.
It can't always be sunny and 72 degrees. If you waited for that kind of weather you would get to ride about five days a year. Rain happens. Fortunately, Pearl Izumi's Elite Barrier WxB Short is available to help. With a waterproof rating of 15K and a breathability rating of 15,000mm, you know you're well protected where it counts if a sudden squall kicks up mid-ride.
The real story here is Pearl Izumi's Elite Barrier fabric.This three-layer fabric consists of an outer layer that blocks wind and water, a waterproof laminate layer, and an inner layer of titanium laminate that helps your body regulate its temperature. Together these layers form a a barrier that protects you from any nasty surprises that the weather will throw your way.
The Elite Barrier WxB Short is secured at the waist with elastic. The elastic is backed up by a one-hand-pull drawstring to hold the short firmly in place. As a finishing touch, Pearl Izumi added reflective elements to make you more visible at night.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier WxB Short comes in sizes S through XXL. It's available in Black.
