Description

Interval Short

One of Pearl Izumi's most compressive pair of cycling shorts, the Interval Shorts use more muscle-hugging Lycra than any other shorts in their line, giving you a fatigue-fighting performance the second you put them on. A big part of what makes these shorts so special is the sophisticated seven-panel design, which employs the stretch and support of the Elite transfer In-R-Cool fabric, to smoothly move along with you in the saddle while also wicking moisture and breathing exceptionally well. This fabric, as its name may imply, has cooling performance to regulate your temp when working up a sweat battling the climb. Then, the Elite Escape 1:1 chamois' floating top-sheet design cuts down on friction and chatter from the road for soft, chafe-free comfort where you need it.

  • Compressive cycling shorts with cooling, cushioned performance
  • Substantial Lycra makes these shorts PI's most compressive
  • In-R-Cool fabric wicks sweat and helps regulate your temp
  • Integrated chamois absorbs impact and road chatter
  • BioViz elements boost your visibility in darker conditions
  • Laser-cut openings with silicone leg grippers keeps the fit secure

I've been riding this year about 3-4 times a week for an hour to 2 hours per ride. I recently wore out an old pair of shorts and looked for a replacement pair. I still use Specialized shorts but I was still feeling discomfort from sitting on my bike for that amount of time. I looked all over online for new shorts that had enough padding to let me cycle for up to 2 hours without pain in my rear. Of all the brands and shorts I looked at, a common theme emerged - 'not as comfortable as my Pearl Izumis'. So I bit the bullet and ordered the Interval shorts. Their padding is adequate. But my two criticisms are that the padding is a mesh rather than a solid/homogeneous chamois, so after a while riding, it starts to chafe. In addition, the spandex material used for these shorts doesn't breathe the way my Specialized shorts do, which makes criticism #1 even worse as I get sweaty and sticky on the rides, independent of the weather.

I bought these to replace my Pearl izumi elite in-R-cool shorts. These shorts are a little longer but I didn't have any problems with that.

I think the best you can say about any shorts or bibs is that you don't notice them when you're in the saddle. I didn't notice these at all. Fit is the same as the castelli at the same price point.

Sizing seems smaller than prior versions of same product. This design has a prominent seam across the back and it feels like the shorts are falling down. Disappointed

>Rating:

what is the inseam measurement?

The Pearl Izumi Interval short has a 10” inseam on the medium short. Usually they inseam will go up or down ¼ to a ½ in each applicable size.
