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.
