Product Description

Product Description

ELITE Transfer fabric with In-R-Cool® technology provides optimal cooling and reflective sun protection Anatomic multi-panel designFlatlock and double needle seams Silicone leg gripper with welded construction ELITE 3D Chamois®Reflective elements for low-light visibility 9” inseam [size medium]Use simple detergents with no additives:Never use detergents with fabric softeners, perfumes or any additive type product. The general rule of thumb is the simpler the better. Many detergents with additives leave "surfactants" behind on a fabric's fibers that inhibit the technical performance. Typically the best detergents to use will have "Clear" or "Free" in their names. Don't pour the detergent directly onto the clothing, put it in the washer first, when you start the water. If something is not functionally working, but is not dirty, try rinsing it twice in warm to hot water. This will help get rid of the harmful surfactants. Read the care content label:On the inside of your garment, or on the hangcard, there are instructions for the care of that individual piece. On garments this will be on a side seam or back seam label. Follow those directions. On finer fabrics, use a "Gentle" cycle. Close all zippers, attach "hook and loop" closures on gloves You can use the dryer, carefully: If you use a dryer be sure to use a lower / warm heat setting (Do NOT use a commercial dryer or a "Hot" setting). This will often restore the fabric and help the water and wind repellent qualities. If in doubt, hang the clothing to dry.

The Elite In-R-Cool short for men takes the classic biking short to a new level in tech performance, technology and value. The Elite Transfer stretch fabric quickly transfers moisture on the skin to the outer surface of the short for fast evaporation. And the unique embedded In-R-Cool technology is activated by perspiration and cools body surface temperature by 5 percent. The removable Elite 3D chamois is pre-shaped to provide the highest level of riding comfort. Its breathable four-way stretch technology adjusts to the body and moves moisture away, and active carbon yarns improve thermoregulation and helps eliminate static-induced fatigue. Ultra-durable with flatlock and double needle seams, other features include an anatomic multi-panel design, silicone leg gripper with welded construction, and reflective elements for low-light visibility. Machine washable (no fabric softeners).

Very comfortable and cool as advertised.

I have 3 other pairs of bike shorts from different brands, and these PI's are probably the best.

These shorts feature generous padding, flat seams, mesh panels, and sun reflecting fabric. They are very comfortable and the reflective fabric really works to keep solar heat at bay. I love the flat bands and sticky finished edges on the legs. These work to keep the shorts from riding up while preventing chafing. After thousands of miles they are still comfortable. While more durable than some shorts they are not as durable as I would like them to be. Both of my pairs developed wear spots along the seams of the chamois. I had the stitching reinforced and have managed to get over 3K miles out of two pairs in rotation. They run large so I recommend buying a size smaller than you usually would. Despite the wear issue, I decided to buy a third pair. They are that comfortable.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
These shorts have awesome padding, not to much to cause chaffing( but Chamois cream is highly recommended for long rides if your new to the sport), has flat seems and vents very well, shorts do not ride up what so ever. I'm 5'11 weight 174lbs medium fits nice and snug. Shorts are very helpful during the short rides and even long rides.So if you are debating whether or not to buy these shorts the answer is yes!! price tag on these shorts are $110 and you get them for $70ish. if u click on my profile name "New glider" go to pics and you can see 3 pics of the Chamois for your pleasure. so far i have put over 300 miles on the shorts and they do just as good if not better than the high dollar shorts..02.. also my waist size is 32 fyi

Color Name: Black ContourSize Name: X-Large Verified Purchase
I am 6'2" 220lbs. I wear jeans in size 36 in Levis - 38 in your regular off the rack suit pants (36 too tight).

I have spent more time than I should have in the couch and I love food, just to say I'm not exactly in the best shape right now (which is why I'm gearing up to get off the couch and on the bike...)

Why am I giving you this info... well, I would've expected XL to fit right (it does in Sugoi). In Italian bibs, I'm probably a triple X. But in these, XL is HUGE. So big in fact that they were nearly loose around the thighs (and I have strong thighs - one of my better attributes ;-) )
I sent back the XL and got them in Large. They fit much better, but to be honest with you, if I drop down to my goal, ie loose about 35lbs, i.e. 190lbs, and a 34 waist, they'll probably be on the large side.

And it's not that I like my bibs to be super tight, but they shouldn't 'flap' here and there if you know what I mean.

So you're warned... Pearl Izumi must've updated their sizing to make us feel better about our bodies I suppose, since I'll probably be ready for a size Medium in 6 months - which is kind'a weird if you think about it. I wonder what a 5'6 guy 160lbs would fit into - do they have negative sizes at PI????

These are the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned. They have just the right amount of padding in all the right places. The silicon leg grippers do a good job holding the shorts in place. They stay cool and dry as advertised. I wore these on a 101 mile ride and had no numbness or chafing during the entire ride and only very minor soreness for one day after the ride. I recommend these shorts to others.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: X-Large Verified Purchase
Wore these every day of my 480 mile ride this past summer (RAGBRAI). VERY comfortable, washed up easily and dried out before each days ride. It, literally, would have been a pain in the butt not to have these riding shorts. I just wish I would have purchased another set. Only complaint, the rubber logos wore away from the pant so now they appear to be generic. My butt doesn't care. Great value as compare to bike shop purchase and selection. Sizing was accurate for ordering online.

This is the third PI short I've tried and is my favorite! The pad is positioned nicely so it's not riding up through the front of the short. The panel design and materials make the short extremely comfortable. I typically order Large in all PI because of the feedback saying the line runs one size small. I'm 5'11" and 175. While these shorts fit nicely, I may have gotten into a Medium with no issues. Great short!

These are quite good. Comfortable, nice grippy legs, and I like the length (on the long side). I would assume that (like all cycling objects) since these are "advanced" shorts, they will not last as long as my cheaper pairs, but heck, I'm worth it. I would say they are size accurate and certainly line up with the rest of the Izumi Elite sizing: I'm (currently) a 37 in pants and these shorts are very comfortable, but lets just say I think they'd also fit riders who wore 36 or 35 but probably not those wearing 34.

The InRCool feature is very nice. What it amounts to is a very very fine micro mesh material between the standard black lycra and your skin. The result? It create a standoff between the lycra and your legs, making air flow easier and generally eliminating that sticky lycra feel that comes with things soaked in sweat. Wore them today in 82 degree weather and I can say that they were shockingly comfortable and cool the whole time.

Recommended.

I will say that I see a fair number of reviews here from people who are buying this as their first pair of cycling shorts. I would say you are probably over-buying. I'd recommend the Pearl iZUMi Men's Attack Cycling Short as a great 8-panel short for a first pair: the Attack is still massive overkill for a new rider, but a very nice product at a much lower price than these InRCool shorts.

For reference, PI has three levels of Product: Select, Elite, and P.R.O.
