Don't make winter harder than it is.
Spring can be rough, and winter can be rougher. However, if you're like us and over prepare for everything in life—extra socks on a hike, two towels to the beach, or a personal bottle of wine to a formal dinner party—you'll appreciate the Pearl Izumi Select Thermal Tight. Designed for use on the milder days of winter, the Select tight can be easily paired with a Transfer base layer to fight sub-freezing temperatures, too. But what we love is how the Select tight offers efficient thermal protection while retaining the fit, feel, and wicking of a race-day tight.
Pearl Izumi's Select Thermal Tight features an anatomical, multi-panel design made from the exclusive Select Thermal Fleece fabric. This material was carefully selected to ensure a hand-in-hand system of consistent warming insulation and effective moisture transfer. The selection grants a protective garment, for mild to lower degree weather, that won't have you drowning in sweat when your watts start to climb. And if you feel the heat coming on at those high BPMs, the Select Thermal Tight features an eight-inch zipper at the lower leg for quick ventilation. At the very least, this addition makes for an easy in-and-out of the tight.
Pearl Izumi understands that while a winter garment had better be warm, a tight isn't worth its weight if the fit isn't precise and comfortable.To ensure this, Pearl designed the Select's multiple panels in a pattern that allows full articulation during common cycling movements, with the panels attaching with flatlock, double needle seams for a durable, non-abrasive structure. To keep everything in place, the Select Thermal Tight makes use of plush elastic ankle gripper. This not only helps the tight retain its contoured fit, but it also ensures that the insulation layer remains uninterrupted. For riding under the street lights, Pearl also added 360 degree reflective accents to the tight.
The Pearl Izumi Select Thermal Tight is available in sizes from Small to XX-Large, and in the color Black. Please note that this tight does not include a chamois.
