Simple and light.
When short-sleeves aren't enough, slide into the Pearl Izumi Launch 3/4-Sleeve Jersey and enjoy the added coverage. Its breathable, wicking polyester fabric pulls moisture away from your skin in order to keep you dry and comfortable. And, in addition to this, it also dries quickly in order to keep your core content during intense riding.
The jersey's overall lightweight composition is a big part of what makes the Launch an effective free ride piece. This was achieved through Izumi's incorporation of its Transfer fabric throughout the jersey. This material is airy and highly stretchable, which, in turn, accommodates body armor without making suffer through intolerable heat.
In terms of fit, you'll find that Izumi cut the Launch to be a little loose over the torso and shoulders. As a result, you'll still retain a full range of motion after you pull the jersey over your pads. Additionally, you'll find that Izumi decided to forgo anything deemed 'unnecessary' to the functionality of the design. Accordingly, the Launch is absent of zippers, pockets, and headphone conduits. However, Izumi did make sure to add an integrated glasses wipe for clearing your goggles after a run.
For a touch of added comfort, Pearl Izumi also gave the Launch Jersey a V-neck collar. And for style, you'll also find an asymmetrical, sublimated print that sets it apart from cookie-cutter jerseys.
The Pearl Izumi Launch 3/4-Sleeve Jersey is available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Black/lime scrib camo, Electric Blue/samurai plaid, and Shadow Grey/black hex.
