Some days, you want bright colors and aggressive patterns. Other days, you just want a pair of classic black bibs like the Pearl Izumi Men's ELITE Pursuit Bib Shorts, which feature supportive and breathable fabrics with a chamois designed for long-mile comfort.
Fashioned from ELITE Transfer In-R-Cool fabric with coldblack technology, these bib shorts provide support while effortlessly wicking moisture away to keep you cool and dry through hot summer rides. The bib straps are constructed from light and breathable mesh, while the leg bands feature folded fabric with silicone grip to keep the hem comfortably in place without pinching. The shorts are finished with Pearl Izumi's ELITE Pursuit 1:1 Chamois with high density cushioning, a moisture-wicking backing, and a smooth, stretchy top layer to keep you comfortable and dry without unnecessary bulk.

Leg openings too large

I have no doubt the shorts function and wear quite well. I have multiple pairs of PI bibs that I love. The cut of the newer bibs, however, is larger at the leg opening, so much that there is a large gap between the shorts and my thigh. I was hoping it was a QC issue, but a second pair was the same. Thankfully, CC's customer service was excellent and return was quick, easy, and free.
- Fit: True to size
Great bibs. First PI for me and could not be happier. The chamois is great and the compression in the legs makes the long rides easy.
Wore for a century with no issues.
Would recommend for sure.
