Once you go black… you may hit warp speeds.
When fast isn't fast enough, you need to amplify your speed to Mach 5. Precisely engineered to reduce drag and increase your aerodynamics by 8%, the Pearl Izumi Pursuit Black Mach 5 Speedsuit was released with the podium in mind. Constructed thoughtfully with the highest grade breathable and lightweight fabrics, the suit reduces drag along your body. Pearl's P.R.O Aero fabric is strategically placed on areas where the angles of your body meet the air in the harshest of ways, smoothing out the air flow for optimal aerodynamics, and the P.R.O. Transfer fabric on the main body offers an intensely lightweight feel with amplified airflow.
Reducing drag a step further, the Pursuit Black Mach 5 features long sleeves, which were a conscious choice to smooth out the forearms for a more seamless transition of air from your arms across the body. Patented Speed Sleeve construction ties in with this technology, with a fit that is intensely close to the body throughout the shoulders and chest to create a smooth, virtually wrinkle free transition, eliminating ripples for air to get caught on when you're in your riding position. The aerodynamic paneling makes its way down your body to the waist, and a new Team 1:1 Chamois with a floating top sheet that provides reliable comfort when you are giving your maximum effort. A 10-inch inseam (size medium) is met with silicone print for grip along the laser cut openings to ensure a seamless transition from your knee to body.
When speed is the goal, Pearl Izumi isn't good at turning away from technology that might up your game by fractions of a second. Their engineers team together with pro athletes to create Speed Shop, where innovative ideas are tested rigorously until a prototype manages to meet their professional athlete's standards. This collaborative effort between the pros and the designers results in an unsurpassable product making its way onto our shelf, and ultimately to you, so you're prepared to ascend new levels of riding and find your spot on the podium.

- Q & A
Is the fit of the Pearl Izumi Mach 5 Speedsuit about the same as the Castelli San Remo 3.2? I wear a M in the Castelli and am not sure if I should get a S in the Pearl or an M. The Castelli is snug on me but not tight. I am 6'1" and 155 lbs.
