Pearl Izumi Women's Sugar Thermal Cycling 3/4 Tight
One of the most bothersome parts of cool-weather rides can be uncomfortable layering, specifically from a pinching knee warmer. They often do a good job of keeping the body warm, but odd compression and seams everywhere can cause excess friction and discomfort. In situations such as those, a dedicated three-quarters cycling tight provides the same level of warmth as a warmer, without needless layering or potential friction. The Pearl Izumi Women's Sugar Thermal Cycling 3/4 Tight is the perfect answer for cool-weather rides where you want to keep you knees covered.
The Pearl Izumi Women's Sugar Thermal Cycling 3/4 Tight features a good compromise between compression and comfort. Pearl Izumi start with their SELECT Thermal fabric, which features a light brushed pile backing against the skin. This promotes warmth but also does a good job at transferring moisture (i.e. sweat) away from the body, further keeping the body warm. This is part of a six-panel design that is cut specifically to fit anatomically and keep potential friction at bay. The SELECT Escape 1:1™ chamois is designed to feel as if there is no edge to the pad, which promotes comfort and eliminate friction over longer rides.
The Pearl Izumi Women's Sugar Thermal Cycling 3/4 Tight has a sleek key pocket along the leg, with reflective elements along the lower leg. Fit is form fitting without being too compressive, and ends just right at the top quarter of the calf. This three-quarter tight is best-used for cooler temperatures between 45-60 degrees Fahrenheit. It is available in six sizes (XS-XXL) in Phantom Heather and Black colorways.
