Description

The pain cave.

The sign of any great short is being able to forget you have it on during a ride. When fabric and fit cease to enter your mind out on the roads, you can focus completely on throwing everything you have into the pedals. If shorter efforts are a mainstay of your training for the summer, whether due to an upcoming tri or a resolution to build strength and power, count on the Pearl Izumi ELITE Escape Sprint Short. It'll be the one you can forget you have on when you're riding for your ceiling.

Featuring a cleaner silhouette and the redesigned ELITE Escape 1:1 Chamois, the ELITE Escape Sprint Short uses supportive Lycra fibers throughout the main body to deliver a secure, stabilizing fit for your muscles while you push them to their limits. A floating top sheet and a slimmer, more flexible design lends the chamois unparalleled ability to move with you as you push through grueling timed efforts, significantly reducing the likelihood that chafing will interrupt your ride. Of course, the shorter, 7-inch inseam brings tri kit to mind more than road, but its raw-edge hems backed by soft printed silicone will subtly stay in-place and preserve range of motion on the quads of sprinters and climbers alike.

  • Ride for your ceiling in this sprint-focused road short
  • Form-fitting cut and Lycra fibers provide supportive fit
  • Redesigned chamois uses floating top sheet for added comfort
  • 7-inch inseam ideal for triathletes training for a bike leg
  • BioViz reflective accents improve visibility on dim roads

Great bike shorts

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

I've been using the Pearl Izumi ELITE Escape Sprint shorts for many years. Typically I'll buy a two pairs at a time, wear them on alternate rides until they start falling apart and then buy two more pairs. The material and styling has changed since my previous purchase about three years ago - slightly shorter (can tell by the location of my cyclists tan) and the material is both a little thinner and stretchier. Overall though, this seems to be an incremental improvement over an already great short.
