Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Bibshorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Bibshort Test: £71 – £130.

The first thing you notice when you put on these shorts is the quality of the Lycra, which is double-thickness around the leg cuff, with a well-fitting, padded insert.

Minimal but effective use of reflective graphics means that even on dusk-till-dawn rides visibility is considered.

Loaded with thoughtful details, these shorts have an additional panel of vented material on each side to help keep you cool and are double-stitched everywhere, adding to the feeling of quality.


In summary, they feel ?premium' and could be relied upon for day in, day out use.
