Description

We have lift-off.

The longest in Pearl Izumi's line of mountain bike shorts, Launch Shorts are tough enough to handle season after season of serious lift-access downhill terrain, cool enough for up-and-down all-mountain sorties, and stylish enough for post-ride pub crawls. Launch shorts are made with a durable, stretchy nylon ripstop shell and ample thigh venting, and come with a removable 3D Tour Chamois to take the edge off the toughest days of riding.

Pearl Izumi Launch Shorts have a long, 15 inch inseam to fit nicely over your knee pads, so no one will mistake you for a roadie. Four-way stretch ripstop nylon makes up the bulk of the body. This durable fabric won't bind while you ride and breathes well to keep you dry and comfortable. Huge, 10-inch zippered vents on the front of the thighs keep cooling air flowing through your Launch shorts, and a waist adjustment on the back ensures a perfect fit, whether you're riding before lunch or after.

The included 3D Tour chamois pulls moisture away from your skin to prevent chafing and irritation and to allow your body to regulate its temperature naturally. The chamois also provides padding to make long hours of singletrack feel pretty darn comfortable. Unlike many riding shorts, the Launch short's chamois liner is removable. This has several benefits. One is that you can adjust the fit and look that you want because the short and chamois are separate. You can also wear the short without the chamois liner as just a casual short, or the chamois with another short if your Launch shorts are dirty. 

Pearl Izumi Launch Shorts are available in sizes S through XXL and come in Grey Scrib Camo, Electric Blue, or Black.

These are a great and tough short

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great shorts. They're tough, remain cool, dry quickly and with the zippered vents on legs and pocket are great for hot rides. They're also the correct length for riding with knee pads. I ride with these when I'm going to wear pads.

Only complaint is that with the bright color they do show dirt and you need to clean well or the color won't last.

Hey Thomas,

Thanks for your question.

The waist size of a large will range from 34.5 - 37.5in (87.6 - 95.3cm). I hope this helps.
