Like the Leader Bib Shorts, Pearl Izumi's Short-Sleeve P.R.O. Leader Jersey was built for cyclists with the highest standards in design and craftsmanship. Constructed using Izumi's top-end P.R.O. Transfer In-R-Cool fabric, this jersey is lightweight, super elastic, and incorporates what's known as Coldblack technology.
This is a finishing treatment that reduces absorption of heat rays in darker fabrics, resulting in protection from the sun and improved heat management. In fact, it's claimed to reduce surface temperature of the In-R-Cool up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit in direct sunlight, which means an entirely black kit will feel like you're wearing white.
Pearl Izumi also ensures comfort by welding its stretchy, mesh Direct-Vent panels under the arms, and all-out cooling is made possible by a full-length zipper. Three back pockets on the P.R.O. Leader allow you to bring along your whole repair kit, wallet, gel packs, or CO2 cartridges. A fourth sweat-proof pocket has also been included so that you're able to keep your phone accessible and safe from moisture.
The Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Leader Short-Sleeve Jersey - Men's is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors True Red/black, Mykonos Blue/screaming yellow, and Black/stillwater.
