The next time you're laying out race kit for the next morning's event, we'd recommend upgrading to the Pearl Izumi women's ELITE Pursuit LTD Jersey. Making a notable departure from some of Pearl's brighter colors, the ELITE Pursuit manages to sit somewhere in the middle of a racing and training jersey, with its streamlined cut and hardworking fabric construction suiting it remarkably well to both. The ELITE Transfer Dry fabric on the jersey's main body encourages rapid moisture transfer during your sweatiest rides, even when the wind seems to disappear, and it teams with the full-length zipper to provide excellent temperature control when you need to cool down during a long climb. The arms and side panels of the jersey consist of a stretchy, blended synthetic, which allows you to move freely from flats to drops with far less chance of restriction or chafing. The last thing you want to worry about mid-race is challenging your balance by reaching to tug down a wandering jersey hem, so Pearl Izumi includes an elastic gripper on the back of the ELITE Pursuit LTD to make sure it doesn't happen. On the days you can't resist extending your training ride a little further, three rear pockets and reflective accents allow you to carry ride essentials and stay visible while you're out on the roads.
