You're going to hate laundry day.

Cycling gear can be expensive. Because of that, versatility is the name of the game when it comes to the annual wardrobe update. This is where the Pearl Izumi Women's Attack Short shines. Whether you ride trails, road, or velodrome, recreation, race, or just use your bike to get around town, the Attack is right there with you. With the ideal combination of comfort, style, and price, the Attack falls into the everyday cycling sweet spot.

Pearl Izumi's Women's Attack Short is made from the exclusive Select Transfer fabric. This material lives up to the 'Transfer' in its name by efficiently moving moisture away from the skin, out to the quick-drying surface of the short. For heightened comfort, the short features a eight-panel anatomic design with a wide, hip-flattering waistband. The bottom hem is equipped with a silicone gripper to keep the leg from riding up.

The Attack short uses the Race 3D Chamois. Constructed from breathable four-way stretch fabric, the Race 3D has been pre-shaped for total anatomic conformity. Pearl Izumi used a targeted approach to pressure relief in the Race 3D. The strategy utilizes three layers of variable density foam; meaning that the pad is thick where your body needs it and thin where it doesn't. All of this work results in the simplicity of what you really need from a chamois—dry, abrasion-free comfort.

For those all-day epic rides, Pearl Izumi used flatlock seams throughout. This reduces chafing and irritation so you can stay in the saddle longer. Strategically placed reflective elements finish off the Attack short's look and add an element of safety when the last few miles wind up after the sun has passed the horizon.

The Pearl Izumi Women's Attack Short is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the color Black.

Good quality and good fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: X-Small

In my experience, Pearl Izumi makes good quality apparel priced below some of the Italian competitors. The shorts fit well, with a chamois comfortable on longer rides. The waistband doesn't pinch when you're in the saddle, and the shorts come up high enough that there isn't a gap between them and the jersey.

Can wear these all day

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

I bought these based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Normally when I ride I adjust positions and stand for a few seconds because I am uncomfortable, however with these I feel like I can go all day and have not had to adjust my positioning at all. They are the most comfortable shorts I own and I ended up buying a second pair.

Did not disappoint

The shorts here are beautifully crafted and fit perfect. Great compression and incredibly breathable.

Love it So Far

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Going off the original fit out of the box - these are wonderful. The fit is true, and bands are snug without cutting into my waist or thighs and being super unflattering. I've never worried much about saddle sore for casual/workout rides, but upon scheduling a 200+ mile gravel trail trip I knew I had to cave.

Great shorts

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

I broke these in on a 6 day Hawaiian bike trip riding 30-50 miles/day in the sun and rain. They are well padded and fit the way I like bike shorts to fit. Which is with a high waist and not too short. Most importantly, I was never seat sore with these shorts.

Great shorts for the price!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These shorts are great! They fit me perfect! I'm 5'1" and 90 lbs and typically have difficulty finding clothing that fits. They also keep me very comfortable on rides 25+ mile rides. The fabric is very good quality, very durable and has survived a couple of wrecks. You also cannot beat the price! I would recommend these to anyone!
