Make an impact with your skills and style.

If you need your style to make an impact, Pearl Izumi has you covered. Its Impact Plaid Shorts will have you ripping trail and downing beers without skipping a beat.

Constructed from Pearl Izumi's lightweight Transfer Dry fabric, the hand of the Impact Plaid shorts is soft-to-the-touch. This way, they won't feel like a scratchy piece of canvas against your skin. And, because the last thing you ever need are soggy shorts, the material has been engineered to rapidly wick moisture away from your skin to the shorts' quick-drying surface.

In terms of fit, Izumi incorporated a generous 15-inch inseam that qualifies the Impact shorts for all-mountain riding — your guards slip right under and leave plenty of room for movement. Additionally, the shorts have a few details that make them perfect for off the bike forays. A liner with Pearl Izumi's 3D Tour chamois is detachable, which means that you'll be comfortable on the bike and not feel like you are wearing a diaper in the bar afterwards.

This insert features two layers of 13mm variable density padding. Pressure Relief Technology (PRT) places supportive foam where it's needed most, while also ensuring that soft tissue receives optimal support. The entire piece is pre-shaped to fit your anatomy while in riding position, and a four-way stretch further adjusts to individualize the fit. Lastly, the covering fabric is highly-breathable and quite an efficient moisture manager.

Two zippered pockets hold small items like a credit card or license, and a snap-front closure with zipper keeps your fly closed. And rounding out the build, a back tab creates an adjustable fit at the waist.

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

My "Go-To" Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like these shorts and use them all the time. While some may prefer them a little longer I like the length. I have found them to be durable and I really like the look. Unlike DH and FR shorts, they are light weight and comfortable. Seem to run true to size as I am a 32 and the medium fits nicely (snug which I like) without adjustment.
