Every day comfort.
Fashioned from Pearl Izumi's Elite Transfer fabric in a race-inspired cut, the Elite Jersey covers your core with competition-level technology, only at an everyday price.
Essential to sustaining your output in Zone Three is the aforementioned lightweight Elite Transfer fabric. It aids in moisture management, while Izumi's In-R-Cool technology acts as a reflective element to the sun's rays. As a result, the fabric's surface temperatures are drastically reduced. Additionally, you'll find that the material's UPF-50 level of protection furthers this philosophy, while also saving your skin from sun exposure.
And not only does the Elite jersey cool and protect, but it also dries quickly. This, along with stretchy, mesh Direct-Vent panels under the arms, prevents sweat from accruing at the fiber level. The engineered-elasticity in these panels also allows the Elite to follow your movements in the saddles, meaning that the fit will be free from any bunching, pinching, or chafing while in the cycling position.
To secure this fit, and to prevent the jersey from migrating, Izumi placed an elasticized gripper along the drop-tail hem. This also prevents the jersey from sagging when its three rear cargo pockets are loaded with your ride essentials. And in addition to these, Izumi has also included a fourth rear pocket that's both zippered and sweat-proof in order to house your electronic devices. You'll also find a full-length zipper that makes entry and exit of the jersey a breeze, as well as reflective elements that will increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors White/shadow grey, Screaming Yellow/black, Black/electric blue, True Red/white, True Blue/white, and Black/white.

Really nice jersey
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The Elite jersey is awesome. Used it on the first ride yesterday on a 50 miler and it felt
great. I'm 5'7" 165 # with a 30" waist and the form fitting jersey fits great (I purchased a size medium). Not too loose and not skin tight. The fabric feels really soft and durable. So far, so good.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
I picked one up off of SAC but ended up returning it because I couldn't pull off the white and orange SAC color. It seemed pretty durable and the large fit me well at 6'2 200lb.
