Pearl Izumi's Elite Thermal LTD Jersey was designed to keep your core body temperature regulated throughout all of your cool- and cold-weather rides. Pearl Izumi accomplished this using its advanced fabric technology, which works in conjunction with the streamlined fit to provide you with the ultimate in upper body support and overall comfort.
The Elite Thermal Fleece fabric used to construct the LTD is an effective blend of Pearl Izumi's Transfer and Thermal materials. The Transfer fabric is known for its exceptional moisture management, which works by pulling sweat from your skin to the quick-drying outer-surface of the fabric. This material earned its reputation of setting the standard for moisture management fabrics, largely because it's the foundation for the breathable, wicking fabrics used in the majority of Pearl Izumi's spring/summer jerseys. A lightweight thermal fleece material was then blended with the Transfer, providing just the right amount of insulating protection throughout the torso and sleeves. Together, these materials work as a system to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable during your early and late season rides.
The elasticity in the jersey's fabric panels, along with an anatomic sleeve construction, allow the Elite Thermal to follow your movements in the saddle. This means that the fit is free from any bunching, pinching, or chafing while in the cycling position. Pearl Izumi calls this its 'form fit,' which is cut to closely follow the contours of your body. Combined with the anatomic cut and elastic Elite Thermal fabric, the smooth flatlock stitching used to join the panels further reduces any friction at the seams.
To secure this fit, and to prevent the jersey from shifting while riding, Pearl Izumi placed elasticized grippers at the cuffs and drop-tail hem. This treatment at the back prevents the jersey from sagging when its three rear pockets are loaded with your riding essentials. You'll also find a full-length zipper up front and reflective elements throughout.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal LTD Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large. And if you're wondering what distinguishes the LTD from the standard Elite Thermal, it's the LTD's three distinctive, limited edition color options -- Arcade Petrol Blue, Colorado USA, and New Big IP Black.
