A classic value.
Applying its proven fabrics and signature details, Pearl Izumi delivers again with its Quest Jersey. It's referred to as Izumi's 'classic three-pocket' jersey for a reason, as it was designed with a straightforward cut that's comfortable for a variety of cyclists and body types.
Pearl Izumi constructed the Quest jersey out of its lightweight Select Transfer fabric. This fabric is known for its exceptional moisture management, which works by pulling sweat away from your skin to the quick-drying outer-surface of the fabric. This results in you staying dry, cool, and fresh throughout your longest of rides. This fabric earned its reputation of setting the standard for moisture management fabrics, largely because it's the foundation for all of the breathable, wicking fabrics used in much more expensive Pearl Izumi jerseys. So, you're able to feel confident knowing that you're getting top-tier technology at a much lower price point. In addition to its quick-drying capabilities, Select Transfer is also incredibly light in weight, which means that it breathes much better than standard Lycra blends.
The engineered-elasticity in the jersey's fabric panels allows the Quest to follow your movements in the saddle, meaning that the fit will be free from any bunching, pinching, or chafing while in the cycling position. Pearl Izumi calls this its 'semi-form fit,' which is cut to closely follow the contours of your body, but isn't quite as race-oriented as some of its other race-oriented jerseys. Additionally, Pearl Izumi knew that you'd be wearing the Quest jersey in a variety of conditions, which is why it built the jersey using 'layer-friendly' flatlock stitching throughout. Combined with the anatomic cut and elastic Select Transfer fabric, the smooth stitching further reduces any friction at the seams.
To secure this fit, and to prevent the jersey from shifting while riding, Pearl 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 all of your riding essentials. You'll also find a 13-inch zipper up front that makes ventilating the jersey a breeze. Additionally, Izumi included reflective elements that increase your visibility to motorists in low-light riding conditions.
The Pearl Izumi Quest Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/black, Electric Blue/black, Screaming Yellow/black, and True Red/black.
