Because not every ride eclipses the five-hour mark, not every rider needs such a short. Combining simple form and simple function is the Pearl Izumi In-R-Cool Ella Short, which is designed for the enthusiast looking to get a little more out of every workout. Its fitted with Pearl Izumi's lightly padded quick-dry chamois to give your sit-bones a little extra cushioning, without fitting or feeling like a soggy diaper when your ride is over. Versatility is key with the Ella, as you can layer it with a knicker for your morning ride to work, or wear it on its own for spin class -- Pearl's highly breathable Transfer fabric wicks away moisture and helps keeps your skin cool when your instructor tells you its time to crank up your efforts.
In addition to the short's anatomic multi-panel construction, Pearl Izumi took care to include a flattering and extra-wide waistband which won't dig into your tummy when you're hunched over in the drops. This thoughtful design attention delivers a comfortable fit that flatters a wide variety of body types, letting you get the most enjoyment out of each ride or spin session.
The In-R-Cool Ella Short is available in sizes X-Small through X-Large. The inseam on a Medium comes in at 6.5 inches. Reflective elements on the short help keep you visible when you're out riding after dusk.

Cute and comfy!

For starters, these shorts are super cute and flattering (well, as flattering as spandex shorts can be anyway). The cut and design looks great! I like them for cruising around in because they don't have as much padding as the regular padded bike shorts (which can be uncomfortably bulky, especially when you're walking around in them). They have just enough padding if you're doing shorter rides or cruising around town. You can even fit them under jeans if you wanted to have the padding but still wear normal clothes. I love these shorts!
