Relaxed comfort for all-mountain rides.

Realizing that a large segment of XC and all-mountain riders would rather not wear tights, the Pearl Izumi Men's Divide Short provides a laid-back, relaxed feel for hammering up lung-busting ascents and bombing steep switchbacks. Its lightweight polyester shell dries quickly when you're working up a sweat, while Direct Vent panels channel cool air over your legs for enhanced temperature regulation.

Long enough to fit over your knee pads without being overly baggy, the short's 14-inch inseam offers enough coverage for all-mountain rides. Durable polyester makes up the bulk of the short's body for protection against trail wear and tear. Additionally, the hook-and-loop waist tabs adjust for a secure fit that won't leave you readjusting your shorts every 10-minutes on the trail.

Included with the Divide Short is a liner with integrated 3D Tour Chamois for moisture-wicking performance and extra padding on long, sweaty rides. And unlike many riding shorts, the Divide's chamois liner is detachable. This provides several benefits. You can adjust the fit and look that you want because the shorts and chamois are separate. Moreover, you can opt to wear the shorts without the chamois liner during casual situations, and you can choose to wear the removable chamois liner with other shorts, too.

Lightweight, breathable short

The PI divide shorts are a great lightweight, breathable short with excellent mobility. The chamois fits perfectly, is not constricting and wicks moisture away quickly. I tested it on a 15 mile ride in near 80 degree temps and felt dry throughout the ride. A couple of complaints about the short is that it only has one zippered front pocket. I would have like to have seen two front pockets and maybe one side cargo pocket. Not a big deal, but for a baggy, this would come in handy. The other issue I have with the short is its length at 14 in. On my smaller frame, the shorts come past my knees. This is probably not an issue for someone near 6 ft.

Excellent Middleweight Enduro Short

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These are what I would call a middleweight mountain bike short. They are heavier with a heavier fabric and longer than a more XC oriented short like the Specialized Atlas (best XC short I've come accross). They are not a heavy short like the Pearl Izumi Launch but have a similar just below knee length. The Launch is my go to DH oriented short (think Downieville / Whole Enchilada / etc.). These are in the middle and have a long but narrow pannel down the side and front of the short with venting fabric. They are a great short for those rides with a lot of climbing and descending. They have worn well so far, and I like the chamois (true for the Launch as well as I believe they are the same). They dry quckly if your rear gets sprayed riding through puddles and they breathe pretty well with the venting panels. They are a winner.
