Sorry, this product is no longer available.

A shorter, sassier version of Pearl Izumi’s elite short. The perfect blend of cut and materials make this short feel invisible when you wear it. There are stitches, but you won’t feel them. The chamois is a thing of beauty, working so well you’ll forget about it too. Ride in bliss!

Katie says: What is not to love about these shorts?

I own a white/black pair. The color blocking is flattering on my figure, and with black in the middle I don't have to worry about streaks from my saddle.

The waistband is oh-so comfortable. The elastic hugs my backside, keeping my shorts up. The front stretch panel eliminates compression on my tummy. This makes me happy when I ride in the aero position.

The leg grippers are fashionable with function. They keep my shorts in place and don't create a squeezing unattractive look. In addition, they have an elegant silicone design on the outside.

The great styling, moisture transfer fabric, and sun reflecting In-R-Cool technology make these shorts the epitome of cool.

Not perfect

(Avid Cyclist) June 20, 2012

The fit on these when i first got them was really nice. After the second time the area between the back of the chamois and the leg grippers became loose and baggy. I am 5'0 117 lbs and have shorter legs so that could be the issue. I have read other reviews that say the same thing so it might be the fit. I orderd a med and the rest of the shorts fit great. I like the leg grippers because they are not very tight and they hold the short in place so it does not ride up. I would not buy these again sorry to say because Pearl Izumi usually is the best fit for me. This just might not be the best fit for me.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
  • Dries Quickly
Cons
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Mountain Biking
  • Commuting
  • Long Rides
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels too long

Nothing special, better shorts <$

(Avid Cyclist) March 25, 2012

I was excited to get these shorts but found the fit and lack of support from too few panels disappointing. My 120 pounds/5'5"frame looked fine in the medium but did not feel special and the really large pad felt wierd.

If you like lots of panels and support from shorts, these are not the pair for you. I returned this pair.

Pros
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Fit was sloppy
  • Too few panels
  • Poor support
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Not as good as I had hoped

(Avid Cyclist) October 17, 2011

I purchased these to wear on my long rides (80km+) only to find the fabric around the chamois on the buttocks wrinkles, and the chamois fabric is rough, I needed a small when i would normally be medium. If you are used to a higher waist then these will be uncomfortable as low waist at front although comfortable waistband. Leg grippers are comfortable as they are wide therefore no sausage legs. Chamois padding is good. Overall not my choice for long rides.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Good Length
  • Dries Quickly
Cons
  • Bad fit
  • Chafes
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Short Rides
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Pros

  • Poor Fit
  • Not Enough Padding
  • Weak Seams
Uses

  • Length: Feels too short
