Launch Trail Pant

Whether the trail report calls for brambles or fall days are upon us, the Pearl Izumi Launch Trail Pant keeps us protected during singletrack rides. The lightweight fabric breathes well and dries quickly, so we can stay comfortable between the climb up and the shred back down the trails. The fit allows for wearing a chamois liner short and knee pads when desired, and the tapered leg keeps the hem well out of way of the chain.

Best Pants I have ever used!

I've put it through the wringer

These pants are awesome. They are a slim fit and the cuff is tight around the ankle so there isn't any excess material that can get caught up in the chain. They move really well with you on your body and stretch so that they don't ride up or bunch in weird ways. The material is tough so that you are protected but light weight enough so that you would be comfortable riding them in the high 60s. The pockets are awesome as well. but they are designed to give you the best access when you are on the bike. When you are just standing it feels like they are backwards but you get used to them really fast.

Runs large in terms of waist sizing

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I ordered the size 34 and it was made for someone with a 34 to 37 inch waist size. With Velco adjustment straps as tight as possible it was a 34.5 waist size and too loose for use without a belt.

Legit Riding Pants

I've put it through the wringer

These pants have been next level. My first ride in them was The Whole Enchilada outside of Moab, chilly Oct day at elevation and 80s down at the finish. They were perfect the whole time. I'm 6 feet tall and 165 lbs, the 32 fits perfect. These are thin enough and light weight enough to pedal all day... But the material feels pretty robust. The zippers are super high quality and I love that the pockets sit behind your quad rather than on top. I have chilled at the campsite in these and ridden in wet fall conditions in Arkansas.. all in all these are freakin great riding parts.
