Suit Up for Long Rides

Fashion and function mix with these kits for going far under the sun

- By Matthew Pioro

The Pearl Izumi PRO jersey ($ 200, has a truckload of carrying capacity with its six pockets. They’ll keep you organized on your long rides. Speaking of long, the sleeves extend down your arms a little farther than traditiona­l jerseys. Pearl Izumi’s pro Transfer In-r-cool fabric sets your sweat to the wind quickly. A 2-cm-wide gripper that runs only at the back waist keeps everything i n place. The straps on the Pearl Izumi PRO bib shorts ($ 300) are light, soft and comfortabl­e. The shorts themselves are constructe­d with seven panels to keep the numbers of seams down. A 4-cm-wide strip of silicone grippers at each cuff prevents the legs from riding up as you pedal hard. The chamois is quite plush.
