Description

For Pearl Izumi's new Elite In-R-Cool Cut Shorts, the main body fabric is still Elite Transfer In-R-Cool with Coldblack technology, which acts light a light-colored fabric. Instead of absorbing it as heat, it actually reflects up to 80% of the sun's energy, lowering your body temperature. It also actively pulls moisture from your skin and pushes it to the material's surface.

While they retain the previous model's silicone grip, the folded leg bands are one of the changes made to the shorts' construction. They're compressive without pinching, so they don't cut into your legs or feel restrictive. Unlike the leg bands, Pearl Izumi's Elite 3D Chamois returns unchanged. It's a breathable, four-way stretch insert built with Pressure Relief Technology, which takes pressure off of sensitive nerves and blood vessels while damping vibrations. It also incorporates carbon yarns in order to control odor and to provide increased heat regulation.

Durability is poor, intent is on target

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

The intent of this short is spot on for me. Being 5'8", I have never loved my summer shorts going to my knee, feels like I'm wearing knickers when its 90 degrees out. So I love the idea of a shorter short, harkens back to the 70's when a 5" inseam was considered long. However, the durability of this short is so incredibly poor. Pearl cut corners on seams, and especially material in the crotch and gusset. Mine wore through after a couple hundred miles, and I had to improvise a DIY solution to mend them with amore hardened neoprene material. The intent was on target, materials and construction are a tragedy.
