Pearl Izumi have a history of well though out clothing that also offers a stylish look, we hoped these shorts were no exception.
The design is quite simple but they are panelled to give a better all round fit, this is something that makes a big difference to the fit and some of the cheaper designs cut out. We got a black pair which is fairly standard, they have some small detailing on each leg with the Pearl Izumi logos on but are fairly plain apart from that. Out on the road we found that these logos are actually a big problem for the shorts.
The shorts are quite light weight, light and wick away the sweat well making them good warm weather shorts however the logo issue above is a real show stopper for us so we are not keen on them at all. Come on Pearl Izumi sort it out and get your products tested by real cyclists!
