Description

Give your best friend her shorts back.

You know you've been relying on your best friend's cycling wardrobe a little too long when she starts to give you the "stop asking to borrow my clothes" look, and we understand why you'd ride it out with hand-me-downs as long as possible. Shopping for a cycling kit is pricey, but there comes a time when you've determined that your new hobby has stuck, and you're ready to start your own kit. The Pearl Izumi Escape Sugar Shorts for Women are an ideal go-to when you're ready to get started, with a price that won't break your "new hobby" bank, but enough support to carry you on when you start blasting by the veteran cyclists through steep and windy canyons.

The Escape Sugar shorts are made with a nylon LYCRA blend that gives you just enough stretch to keep your muscles hugged tight, and moisture-wicking properties to keep you cool when you hammer up a big climb. The waistband is wide, with yoga-inspiration, helping you stay comfortable when in the saddle, with minimal fidgeting needed. Pearl Izumi uses its basic Women's Select 1:1 chamois for these shorts, giving just enough support to carry you through the miles, cushioning your sit bones from rough road so you can stay comfortable. The shorts use a silicone gripper on the ends of the legs to keep things in place, preventing rolling or riding-up when you put the power down.

  • Affordable option for starting out your cycling career
  • Cut to move with your body with form-fitting support
  • Plush but slim chamois provides breathable cushioning
  • Silicone leg grippers keep fabric in place as you move
  • BioViz reflective accents help you stand out to motorists

Best shorts ever!

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

I bought these for a long day of cross country mountain biking and these were a LIFESAVER! Incredibly comfortable, don't ride up the legs, or down the waist (I have that issue with the Yeti chamois rolling down because they are too high waisted). I bought a medium and an 5'5" 150lbs (29" waist, 40" hips) and they fit perfectly. I would say definitely go by the sizing chart.

Solid design + performance, but size up!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great fit and stretch - I forget I’m wearing them except that I don’t wince when I sit on a chair after a long ride. The silicone grip at the leg keeps them from riding up, the wide waistband keeps it from digging into my abdomen, the padding isn’t embarrassingly bulky while still effective, and I have easy movement of my legs while wearing them such that I forget they’re there. I have loved these and highly recommend them. I did have to get an XL (I’m 6’0” and 175 lbs), for I am graced with powerhouse thighs of glory. Ride on!

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

Great shorts for a great price! Very comfortable. Runs small, order size up. I read a few reviews before I bought it, and customers recommended to order a size up. I'm XS-S size and ordered M. Fits perfect!

Love these shorts

  • Fit: True to size

Fit great and very nice look. Run a bit small so buy the next size up from your regular size

Cute Shorts, but Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

These shorts seem great (and I really like another pair of Pearl Izumi that I bought in a size small) but they fit a FULL size smaller than my other pair. Like, I could barely even get them on. Exchanged for a larger size because they're the perfect color gray!

4 hearts and 4 stars! these are great, I love them because they are short and not super long. I do need to break them in a little bit more hence the 4 stars and not the 5. But I'm sure once they are stretched out around my thighs a little bit that they will be that much better. I don't want to say they run small because of this, but they are a little tight around my thighs.
