Summertime blues, denied!

Pearl Izumi’s Elite In-R-Cool Tri Shorts are designed for those sometimes-hellish races that take place in summer’s hottest months. They’re treated with Coldblack, a treatment that reflect’s the sun’s rays, and reduces the amount of heat transferred to the skin, which helps keep you cooler.

Additionally, the Transfer fabric that makes up the shorts wicks moisture to both keep you col and reduce the likelihood of chafing. This is handy for both human-produced moisture (sweat) and environment-produced moisture (lake water). At the core of the shorts is the Pearl Izumi TRI quick-dry chamois. It’s purpose-built for triathlons, so it dries quickly, is plenty supportive on the bike, and won’t feel awkward or out of place while you’re running.

So far so good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

First off, I'm an avid road bike rider and I'm very familiar with PI's bibshorts. I wear side M in their bibs so that's what I bought in these tri shorts. I'm 5'11" with a 32-33 waist. Initial thoughts were that they were going to be way to small when I opened the bag but they fit perfectly. A little snug on the legs but they stay in place. It's below freezing here, so tried running with them with sweatpants over top of them for warmth. The shorts are very supportive and feel great running. No chafing or bunching. Then I used them on my bike trainer and again, very supportive. I've been off the bike for a while so I don't know if it's just my butt being out of shape and not used to the saddle or if it's the thinner padding but I did notice a little discomfort after about 30 minutes of riding. I'm trying to get into shape for a local sprint triathlon and I hope these will do the trick on race day.

Just as a head's up, these shorts come in a regular and long length version. The regular has a 8" inseam and the long has a 10" inseam. They feel a little short compared to my PI bibshorts and should have went with the longer version, but I'm sure I will get used to them.

Too tight in the thigh

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These are beautiful bike shorts and I wish I could enjoy the pair I ordered. However, I sent then back because the leg bands, the bands that go around the thigh, are way too tight. In fact, they would make the beginning of a good tourniquet due to the fact the bands dig into the thigh muscles thereby constricting blood flow. I purchased a large even though my waist is 33? ? 34?. If I go up to a XL the short I feel would be to large elsewhere.
