Bringing style to the trail.

Lycra-tight bike shorts aren't for everyone. No matter what type of cyclist you are, a bit of modesty and freedom of movement never hurt anyone. For this reason, Pearl Izumi created its Canyon Plaid Shorts. They're versatile enough for enduro riding, and comfortable enough for a day of trail riding.

For the construction of the shorts, Pearl Izumi selected its venerable Transfer Dry fabric. This material is soft-to-the-touch, and as its name suggests, it's quite the efficient moisture manager. However, given how lightweight and breathable this material is, there won't be much moisture to transfer in the first place.

In terms of fit, the Canyon's 11-inch inseam (size Medium) is the shortest in this year's collection, yet it still provides you with ample upper leg coverage. It lends itself to the shorts' middle ground looseness, that's slightly more tapered than all-mountain baggies, but still provides ample leg openings to fit over bash guards. And to secure this fit, Pearl Izumi used its exterior waist adjustments, front snap closure, and zip-fly in order to hold the shorts firmly in place.

Additionally, the shorts feature a semi-floating liner with Pearl Izumi's 3D Tour chamois. This insert features two layers of variable density 13mm padding. Pressure Relief Technology (PRT) places supportive foam where it's needed, while also ensuring that soft tissue receives proper support and padding. The entire piece is pre-shaped in order to conform to your anatomy while in riding position, and four-way stretch further adjusts to individualize the fit. The covering is breathable as to move moisture away from the surface of the pad. As a result, you're left riding cool, dry, and comfortable. The liner is attached to the shell at the back of the waist.

The Pearl Izumi Canyon Plaid Shorts are available in the color Samurai Plaid and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.p>

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.

Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
