Strengths:    The shorts are made with good quality
except the new pad.

Weaknesses:    PRT pad

Bottom Line:   
The new pad is terrible I too want the old PRT pad.
This new pad seems to rub in the wrong places and makes riding a dread.

Strengths:    Fit, style and lycra material is top rate.
Legendary durability.

Weaknesses:    PRT pad is a disaster for booty comfort. I'll have to scour the bike shops for the older style Pearl Izumi shorts, or find another brand.

Bottom Line:   
Pearl Izumi use to be the only short I would wear, but they switched to the crappiest pad I've had the displeasure of using the PRT torture device. What a shame that they changed a nearly perfect product into this travesty. Gauranteed, that on long rides the edges of the PRT pad and/or the stiching is going to rub your cheeks raw. I guess their marketing people didn't learn anything from the "New Coke" debacle.

Strengths:    You can machine wash them to death.

Weaknesses:    Padding is questionable unless you have alot of fat on your butt.

Bottom Line:   
I once heard a long time bike shop owner state that pearl izumi bike shorts were the best ever.I bought pair and did not think they were a big deal.Comparing them to my old giordanas the fit was less than glovelike and my butt got sore after a couple of hours of riding

Opinions On Pearl Izumi Shorts?

I've had pretty good luck with PI gear in the past, and picked up two pairs of their Elite In-R-Cool shorts this spring, expecting the very same degree of quality. They're definitely snug, and maybe borderline small for their size in every dimension, but they're not constricting in any way. Within ... Read More »

Pearl Izumi Attack Bib Shorts

Howdy, I've been thinking about going the bib short route after many seasons in shorts. I am hesitant about dropping big bucks on a pair of bib shorts, in case I end up not liking them, but am willing to take the plunge if I can get a decent pair for $100 or less. I have two pair of PI Elite sh ... Read More »
