Start out the right way.
We can understand wearing street clothes when you ride to the store a few blocks away for a half gallon of milk and the Sunday times, but we can't, in good conscience, recommend anything but cycling shorts for your regular workday commute. If you're looking into investing in your first pair, the Pearl Izumi Quest Splice Short makes a great introduction. With a price that's friendly to your wallet and the plush Tour 3D chamois standing between you and the saddle with supportive foam, the Quest Splice enjoys a simple, and effective, construction.
Pearl uses a classic eight-panel design to construct the Quest Splice, with panels composed of a blend of nylon and elastane fibers to provide a mix of stretchy support and fast moisture transfer on sunny weekend rides and warm evening commutes. The short achieves a classic cycling sihouette, but with a more comfort-based fit than ultra-contoured racing kit. Silicone grippers line each leg hem, holding the short in place without pinching or chafing, and reflective accents work to improve your visibility in the saddle during low-light conditions.
