Circle in comfort.

Pearl Izumi designed its new Canyon Shorts to combine day-long riding comfort and support with a style and fit that looks great on or off of the bike. They're built with the imperative characteristics that you demand while riding, without screaming to everyone that you're wearing chamois-clad bicycle shorts.

Pearl constructed the Canyon Shorts from its own Transfer Stretch fabric. This lightweight, breathable material provides exceptional moisture transfer and moves with you as you ride. Accordingly, this keeps you comfortable and dry throughout your longest trail riding sessions.

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.

Pearl Izumi's Mountain Series 3D chamois is incorporated into the shorts' detachable liner. This four-way stretch insert is pre-shaped, and it blends two layers of variable density padding in order to provide you with maximum support. The chamois also incorporates Pearl Izumi's Pressure Relief Technology (PRT), which optimizes blood flow and increases overall riding comfort.

To store your keys, cash, or cards, the shorts also feature a single hidden-zipper side pocket.

The Pearl Izumi Canyon Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and Shadow Grey/black.

The Basics

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This short is perfect for someone just needing a baggy mountain bike or commuter short.The Pearl Izumi chamios is decent, but not their top of the line. I ditched the liner and just wear my bibs with this short on top. I also wear these shorts swimming and as a casual short. I have three pairs of these shorts.

I am still considering returning these, as they have been a disappointment. The fit is funky because of the sewn-in liner (they get all bunchy in the small of my back) and the chamois is barely adequate. Not recommended.
