Description

Cool-as-ice spin threads for dropping when its hot.

At mile marker 30, your buddy decides to take a detour and add a solid thirty minutes to your morning ride. Good thing you've got the 3D Chamois in the Pearl Izumi Elite Cut Shorts to help you push through comfortably. As the morning sun heats up the blacktop these shorts wick away sweat, vent heat, and use compression-fitting construction to support your tired muscles. Outfitted with features originally designed for the P.R.O series, the Elite will become your go-to short for medium to who-brought-the-hammerhead-length rides.

  • ELITE transfer fabric with In-R-Cool technology wicks moisture quickly to encourage evaporative cooling
  • Flatlock and double-needle seams eliminate chafing over long rides
  • Welded silicone leg grippers keep you from experiencing an atomic wedgie at mile 50
  • Elite 3D Chamois has a ventilated design to keep you cool, pads high-pressure areas at the crotch, and features a bacteria-fighting topper to eliminate funk
  • Reflective elements keep you visible at dusk while you pound the pavement amidst car headlights

The only shorts you need

I love these. The padding is right where you would expect it to be, and provides a great amount of cushion without being too bulky. The fabric is thick enough to be super durable (even survived a crash and tumble in the woods...), but is still breathable and cool. The fit is spot-on - shaped well for being on the saddle and doesn't slide around once you get moving. I've used these for both road biking and single track XC rides and couldn't be happier with them. If you're looking for compression bike shorts, these ones won't steer you wrong

Good Bike Shorts

I upgraded from Pearl Izumi Select Series. Chamois is thicker and can ride longer without feeling uncomfortable. Great fit.

PI always fits a little big for me

I'm a PI fan - great quality gear. But the shorts always run a little large for me. I'm 5'10", 170lbs and the size chart says I'm a Medium, but the shorts feel a little too loose and the legs are just a little too long.

Oddly enough, the bib verision of this short fits me great!

Where does the waistband of these shorts...

Where does the waistband of these shorts usually sit?

Responded on

This short is a great fit! Waist sits comfortably just above my hip bones

Great shorts, GREATER COMPANY!

The shorts- great, worth the extra money, best I have ever owned! Let me brutally honest men, the pad conforms to your man parts. I wore the shorts this past saturday for a 100 miler and had no problems!

I am 6'2, 210lbs, and had to return my XL for the L.

The Company-the best I have ever worked with. No hassles involving the return, I didnt even pay for return shipping! The lady on the phone(customer service) was very friendly and professional. I will not buy, let me repeat, not buy from anyone else! This is the best company out there for cycling needs, hands down!!!!!! Even if I find what I like and it's a little more with this company (which was not the case with these shorts), I will pay the extra. That is how good they are!!!

Works great

These shorts have a great fit and kept cool on a long Texas summer ride. They are very comfortable and have a great pad. All in all a great short that does its job well.

Good shorts

Upgraded from Pearl Izumi Attack shorts. Bought one pair to try them out. Wore them on a couple of 4 hour rides, and ordered three more pair.

Great shorts

I just rode the Salt Lake Century in these. It ended up being 108 miles and 7 hours in the saddle. My crotch has never felt better after a long ride than it has with these shorts. Highly recommend.

Stay cool with Coldblack fabric
