Description

Cut through the air.

Pearl Izumi built the P.R.O. In-R-Cool Shorts to give you plenty of comfort and a more aerodynamic surface so you get a better feeling, faster ride. High-tech, breathable fabrics reduce friction with the air on a microscopic level, letting you cut through the air with more ease and more speed.

  • Ultra-light P.R.O Seamless 4D chamois uses 4-way stretch fabric, and variable-density padding gives you a comfortable ride
  • Transfer Aero fabric reduces drag for more aerodynamic, stream-lined movement
  • Anatomic, seamless, multi-panel construction gives you a perfect fit and reduces chafing
  • Silicone leg grippers helps keep your shorts in place so you don't have to try and adjust them while you ride
  • R-Cool technology helps keep you cool by pulling heat away from the skin while it also reflects harmful UV radiation

Terrific shorts!

These shorts are incredibly comfortable. They fit almost like a compression short, offering great support all around. The chamois is very comfortable, and stays in place without shifting during a ride. After about a hundred miles in the saddle, I bought a second pair.

Tighter Fit!

I see others have the same impression, these shorts fit tighter. I have always worn Med. in PI PRO shorts, so I was surprised these seem to be so tight. I measured them against an older pair and they had the same dimensions, but the fabric on the newer model is much stiffer. You either like it, or you don't. I'm hoping they break in a little.

Highly Recommended

Best shorts I have. The chamois is excellent and comfortable even after a long ride.
Did notice that they come tighter than other PI that I have, altough I maintain a meduim.
But still absolutely love it!

Great short

I have ridden in Pearl's for years, and found this short to be much better than the old Pearl Izumi PRO's ...
better fit, no draw string, nice tight waist band, and tight leg band too. They stay in place. Try them.

big step up

Don't know how to compare these to other high-end shorts, but man they blow away the mid-level shorts I was using. Good compression. The chamois is relatively thick and dense, but not at all uncomfortable - no sense of it being awkward, stiff, or in the way. Outstanding comfort. Very cool. Definitely worth the money for me to make this upgrade.

My best pair of shorts

I've had a few pairs of PI shorts and just bought the latest from RealCyclist. By far my favourite pair now, even preferable to another pair of brand new Sugoi's. They don't "catch" on my seat when I'm out of the saddle climbing and then sit down quickly.

How many panels are in these shorts?

Sent back.

I'm a pretty big fan of PI. I own 2 pair of the previous version of the PRO shorts, they are very good. When I bought the first pair I just put them on and rode, no problems ever. The chamois is a bit thick but kind of packs down over time and I've never experienced any sort of discomfort from it. Bought the 2nd pair, same deal. Good.

Thought I'd get another set and decided on the latest and greatest. There are some improvements: better waist band, better chamois. They look great and are made as well as you'd expect them to be.

However, something is wrong with these shorts that forced me to send them back. Either they are cutting them smaller, the new material doesn't give as much, or the new panel pattern is just wrong because I found them to be so restrictive that I fought them the whole ride.

After my ride I had seam imprints in my legs for like an hour. My legs were achy which doesn't happen to me, I ride 3-5 x/week.

I called PI and the guy said maybe I had the wrong size. I don't. He also said they may just feel different with the new material but shouldn't stretch out. They do feel different, and to the point that I won't ever put them on again.

They took the joy out of my ride and I believe that pretty much says it all.

Responded on

I have to agree. I have two pair of these, the old pro and the new In-R-Cool Pro and the new ones are definitely just a bit smaller/tighter. They seemed to have changed the sizing a tiny bit. I don't have problems with the new ones, they are probably my favorite shorts, but they are definitely smaller. Glad to see someone else comment on this, I thought it was just me at first.

I bought a pair of these Pearl izumi PRO In-R Cool shorts and on one of my first rides, which was up Vail pass, I noticed my legs aching on the long uphill climb. After waiting on a friend for several minutes at the top, I started back down the mountain. I passed out and required an emergency room visit and several stitches. I can't say for sure that I passed out due to the very tight fitting shorts, but they felt like a tourniquet around my legs even though I bought the size recommended for my waist measurement. I took them back after the accident and exchanged them for a larger size and have not had a problem since. There could be a sizing problem with these shorts. I felt like I needed to share my accident details with other bikers in case the tight shorts contributed to me passing out and falling. I was injured pretty badly from the fall even though I had a helmet on. I want to make sure other bikers are aware of the possibility of passing out from compression shorts that are too tight-whether they are the correct size or not. I want to spare others an accident similar to, or possibly worse than, mine.
