Say no to overheating.
With a team-influenced cut and striking graphics, the Pearl Izumi Elite LTD Short-Sleeve Jersey is a perfect option when you want pro-inspired performance, without the pro-team kit. Designed as a perfect summer weight jersey, it has wicking fabrics and thoughtful vent placement to keep you from overheating. And the contoured cut keeps it moving with you, instead of bunching and pulling. After all, graphics are only part of the equation when it comes to looking good in the saddle.
Part of the magic of the Elite jersey is Pearl’s Elite Transfer fabric. Like its name implies, it’s designed to pull moisture away from your skin at an astonishing rate, which helps to keep you dry and comfortable when you’re riding hard. Direct-Vent panels at the underarms employ a lighter, airy fabric that maximizes core-cooling airflow. And when even that isn’t enough, the full-length front zipper lets you dump excess heat as fast as can be.
The eye-catching sublimated graphics give you a sharp look, without resorting to pro team knockoff graphics. Flatlock seams sit flush against your skin to minimize chafing, and subtle reflective detailing makes you more visible to drivers, especially around dusk. And as you’d expect, there are the standard three pockets at the rear for carrying your riding essentials.
The Pearl Izumi Elite LTD Jersey - Short Sleeve - Men's is available in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Brush Stroke, Classique, Data Stream, and Victory.

Very cool in the unusual warm CA winter. I imagine it will be in our hot summer's too!
Good fabric, fits too loose
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm 6'8", 200 lb. After purchasing (and loving) a couple XL P.I. Elite LTD Climbers Jerseys, I expected this jersey to have the same fit. It is quite loose in the midsection, almost to the point that I could call it a "club cut", even though I filtered on "race cut" jerseys. Like the LTD Climbers Jersey, length is fine, even for a guy my height. I have not tried the L size, only the XL
