Pearl Izumi Women?s Drop Tail shorts


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Cycling shorts grouptest.

These female-specific bibs address all the issues that commonly crop up when it comes to hopping off the bike for a wee stop.

Having to strip off an abundance of layers has never been ideal so this design allows you to use the ‘Drop Tail’ without having to shed any clothing.


We were completely sold by this nifty feature and it actually works really well, reducing stopping time considerably! The mid-chest clip aims to stop the bibs gathering in your armpits - another handy benefit.
