I ordered two Pearl Izumi tri shorts ï¿½ love them. They are the most comfortable tri shorts I own. Not too tight, not to loose, just right. And the padding is exactly how I like it. I should have ordered a couple more.
These shorts not only fit well and are comfortable but they hold up under the regular wear and tear of everyday use. I highly recommend them. They cost a bit more than other shorts but they last at least twice as long, making them a sound investment. I've been wearing them all season long on my ~20 mile gravel commute and haven't been disappointed.
I haven't bought new shorts in many years. These fit nice, feel good on the skin. Some people complain the pad is too thin. It is thin but I found it to be miraculously comfortable. Over time, things change, and in this case I feel it was for the better. Pearl has always been my go-to brand for apparel, gloves, etc. Also, I couldn't find these anywhere except on BikeTiresDirect and the price was right.
Purchased these hoping they would be good for short early morning rides. Fabric is very thin and doesnï¿½t do too much more than a pair of pantyhose to block out the view. I find the seam in middle of the front to be very irritating, forcing you to pick side to avoid rubbing you know. Would like to get credit from PI towards a 2nd pair of pro bibs instead.
I like wearing tri shorts because I prefer the thinner chamois. I have a couple of pair of Pearl Izumi shorts and like them, but these last shorts seem to run a little smaller. These are definitely a racer fit.
