    Free from distractions.

    When you head out the door for a grueling afternoon of hill repeats in the summer heat, you have no patience for kit that distracts you from your workout. Add Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Pursuit Bib Short to your rotation for the days you can't afford to have fit issues interrupt your ride. Whether that means race day, key workouts, or even your weekly shop ride, the P.R.O. Pursuit will be up for the job.

    Leaving the house during midday summer heat won't be a problem with the P.R.O. Transfer In-R-Cool fabric that Pearl Izumi uses to construct the short. The moisture-wicking synthetic comes with a coldblack treatment to help it resist absorbing heat from the sun to keep you cooler as you ride, and the entire short follows a contoured silhouette that won't stretch or chafe after hours in the saddle. An airy mesh bib sits subtly underneath a jersey, its fabric also helping to draw moisture away from your skin, while grippy leg endings prevent wandering hems from distracting you on your ride. Finally, the P.R.O. Pursuit 1:1 Chamois keeps with the breathable theme of the rest of the short, managing to cushion and support your sit muscles in the saddle without veering into pillowy territory.

    • Everyday short with race-day fit and functionality
    • Contoured fit follows your body movements in the saddle
    • Treated fabric wicks moisture continuously to keep you cool
    • Airy bib provides support while helping you stay dry
    • Soft, breathable chamois cushions while moving with you
    • Item #PLZ00CY

    My go to cycling shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have worn PI Elite Pursuit shorts for some time and I would have never purchased these Pro shorts unless they were on sale, as I felt they were just too expensive to justify the purchase over the Elites, however, after riding in these Pros on several Century rides, they have become my go to shorts, and worth every penny, even at regular price. You will not regret purchasing the PI Pro Pursuit Bib Shorts.

    Excellent Chamois

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    Although this is very subjective I base the quality of the shorts first in foremost on the quality of the chamois and then the over fit. This is by far the most comfortable chamois I have ever none! Although I do like the overall fit I am surprised their is not better grip around the legs. Don't get me wrong its not bad but just not as good as I would have expected given the overall construction. Would definitely buy again.

    6' 200lbs Recreational Rider

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xl

    First off Pearl Izumi stuff lasts. If you pay the $$ you need longevity.
    The best fit for "American" sized people. At 200lbs the XL fits me perfect not too loose or tight. Straps are just right for 6' tall riders. Padding is great-again not too little or too much, no uncomfortable seams or gathering. On a final note, if you have really big sprinter type thighs, these might be too slim in the cut.
    **Don't use fabric softeners-ruins breathability of all cycle gear. The new Pearsol detergent works great

    Sharply Styled Bibs that Perform

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    Used these with the matching jersey several times & for a 105 mile charity ride. Chamois was comfortable for the ride & several people commented on the kit. Nice product

    Excellent bib

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I have bibs from several makers (Endura, Garneau, Assos & even Campy) and find that they all function very good. The Pearl Izumi was the only one that was a little tight but it broke in after a couple of rides. Comfortable with decent compression.

    Great fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: small

    5'10 and about 150, 30 is waist. ordered small and they fit great - snug, but that's how they are supposed to be. Length of straps is ok - wouldn't want any shorter but not uncomfortable. Chamois felt great. Liked the separation between the chamois and the outer shell.

    PRO In-R-Cool vs Pursuit. Is the Pursuit just a step up in PI lineup, or are these two very different bibs for different applications?

    I have a pair of Elite In-R-Cool right now and love them. Trying to decide on next bib purchase. Considering Elite In-R-Cool, PRO In-R-Cool and PRO Pursuit.

    I have the same question. My take is Pursuit is the old PRO with 10 " inseam, and PRO has had cost cutting by replacing Lycra with nylon in non critical areas with 9" inseam. Pursuit probably has more compression/chafing resistance. My old, worn out PRO shorts (not bibs) have far more compression than my new Elite shorts did day 1, and are far less likely to twist on long rides. I pasted the descriptions from the PI site into a doc and deleted the stuff that seemed to be the same. Here is what's left:
