The Women's Escape Quest Short are the best budget cycling shorts money can buy. These Pearl Izumi classics are a perfect introduction to the benefits of padded cycling shorts. Updated in 2017 with the new Women’s SELECT Escape 1:1™ Chamois, these cycling shorts are more comfortable than ever before.
Crafted with long ride comfort at the top of the list, we have paired our most supportive and breathable Women’s PRO Escape 1:1® Chamois with luxurious Italian PRO Transfer fabric, to create a short that you will reserve for your most important rides. Just seven carefully engineered panels are used to minimize seaming for a perfect contour to your body. The elegant seamless hem creates a smooth transition from short to skin for a sleek, high performance look and feel, with a printed silicone gripper to hold it securely in place even during hard efforts.
We made some exciting updates to this consistently best-selling style. The waistband is redesigned to give this short compression through the sides and back, while reducing constriction across the stomach for improved comfort and unrestricted breathing. It’s cut from a fabric made with recycled polyester yarns, and we’ve used the material’s natural stretch to reduce seams and increase comfort while simultaneously creating a stellar fit for even the most dynamic riding. It includes our comfortable and highly breathable Women’s SELECT Escape 1:1™ chamois.
Crafted with long ride comfort at the top of the list, we have paired our most supportive and breathable Women’s PRO 1:1® Escape chamois with luxurious Italian PRO Transfer fabric, to create a bib short that you will reserve for your most important rides. Wide, laser cut bib straps eliminate the need for additional binding allowing a barely there, yet supportive fit, and our unique crossover strap design allows drop-tail convenience without the need for zippers or clasps. The raw edge hem creates a smooth transition from short to skin for a sleek, high performance look and feel, with a printed silicone gripper to hold it securely in place all day long.
Our shortest short is perfect for riding in a hot studio or on a midsummer day, and we’ve updated the fabric for a softer feel and less sheen than traditional bike shorts. The wide waistband is cut high in back for coverage and the front is designed for less restriction and increased comfort. It includes our comfortable and highly breathable Women’s SELECT Escape 1:1™ chamois.
The Women' Expedition Bib Short was created to go the distance. We integrated low profile cargo pockets on the thighs for easy access to smartphones and snacks, and the flexibility to wear the top of your choice without neglecting carrying capacity. This bib was designed by a woman to eliminate issues riders often have with bib shorts, so our drop tail feature makes it easy to answer nature' call quickly and discreetly. The plush and breathable Women' Elite Escape 1:1 Chamois is the perfect companion for long days in the saddle.
This women’s cycling bib short is the answer to riding in hotter conditions where storage for food and other necessities is in demand, whether it’s gravel rides or indoor training sessions where you might opt for just a baselayer and still need to hold a snack or phone. Two pockets on the thighs can either be used to increase carrying capacity or provide an alternative to a traditional cycling jersey. Open mesh side panels allow for greater breathability, while a printed leg gripper keeps the hem reliably in place. Our plush women’s ELITE Escape chamois provides superior in-the-saddle comfort.
This bib uses more muscle hugging Lycra® than any short in our line, for a performance feel the moment you slip them on. A sophisticated seven panel design utilizes the stretch and recovery properties of the fabric to simplify the number of seams, allowing the short to smoothly follow your every movement. Seamless laser cut bib straps provide the smooth support you desire from a bib, with a unique twist: they are connected only to the front and side of the short, allowing for a convenient drop-tail. The back waistband and hems use the same laser cut fabric, for a low-bulk seamless feel and transition to skin. Equipped with our highly breathable premium Women’s ELITE Escape 1:1® Chamois for long ride comfort.
Our bestselling Women’s Canyon Short features lightweight, breathable, form-flattering fabric that is perfect for any type of ride. The longer inseam length provides ample coverage and our quality Select Escape 1:1® Chamois Liner short adds considerable comfort for wherever the road takes you.
Made for riding bikes, but ready to move beyond, the Journey Short is a sporty bike short that can go with you on any active endeavor. This do-it-all short is constructed from durable stretch-woven nylon to move with you. Underneath, a floating liner short provides compression and stay-dry performance, with the comfortable support of the Women's SELECT chamois. This is your go-to short when your active lifestyle includes cycling and more.
Though it shares a name with a men' short, the Women' Summit Shell Short is a piece all its own. Designed by women who ride, this short won't hold you back when you want to take on big lines or jam out a loop after work. The lightweight stretch-woven fabric has excellent articulation and breathability, plus it' made from recycled materials. A 10 inch inseam offers ample coverage for today's low-profile kneepads, so nothing will hold you back.
We’ve taken many of the features found in our most sophisticated bibs and combined them in this value-packed short. It’s cut from a fabric made with recycled polyester yarns, and we’ve used the material’s natural stretch to reduce seams and increase comfort while simultaneously creating a stellar fit for even the most dynamic riding. It includes our comfortable and highly breathable Women’s SELECT Escape 1:1™ chamois.
