Canyon Short

While you may hit the DH park once in a while, you don't need shin-length baggies for your every-day rides. Instead, you prefer a slimmer fit with an adequate inseam that offer the coverage you want without unneccessary bells and whistles like the Pearl Izumi Canyon Short. A proven fan-favorite within the singletrack loving ladies, the Canyon captures the perfect balance between freeride baggies and skin-tight lycra with an athletic, slim fit that moves with you as you power up steep switchbacks and weave through rooty treelines. This year we saw a slight stretch to the inseam, moving from the 8-inch of last year to 9-inches, giving a little more coverage to keep your liner shorts from peeking out underneath, while keeping things short enough that petite lady-shredders won't get swallowed whole. The included liner features Pearl's SELECT Escape 1:1 chamois for plush, but flexible comfort to keep you going on rough miles, and a wide, flexible waistband that locks into place without pinching for all-day exploration.

  • Every day shorts for searching out hero dirt

  • 9-inch inseam gives you the coverage you want without bulk

  • Dial in a custom fit with internally adjustable waistband

Great fit, doesn’t ride well

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size

Great fit on the shorts, but the legs rode up making it uncomfortable to ride. Also needs more functional pockets. I returned them after one ride and bought Zoic Neveah which are AMAZING! I actually bought 2 of them.

OK, but not great

Runs small

Overall, I liked the way the shorts look, but found them to be uncomfortable. They run small. While they technically fit, I would appreciate another inch of breathing room. Also, there are scratchy tags and Velcro in the waistband that no amount of anti-chafing cream would help.

Super quick drying

I've put it through the wringer

These were perfect on a 6-day bike tour in hot, humid, rainy, and muddy conditions. The liner is separate from the shell, and attaches with a loop on the liner and snap on the shell - this works well, and the loops on the liner are great to attach to your panniers if you need to dry the liner en route. Best part of this short - both pieces are ridiculously quick drying. I could take the liner off for lunch or wash it each night, and it would be dry in an hour or two - amazing for avoiding heat rash! Not a great chamois, it's just a flat pad, but it works. I am 5'4", 135, athletic build, usually wear a 6 - the size 6 fit well and the shell was nicely loose. The liner comes in S/M/L sizes - the 6 comes with a small.

Pearl Izumi Canyon

One of my favorite mtb shorts. Fits well and looks great. I ride cross-country mostly, so these are the perfect length and not too baggy or too tight. (My other favorites are the Zoic Neveah 7in shorts)
