Step up to the pedal-worthy comfort of Pearl Izumi's Women ELITE Escape Short. Nothing kills good riding vibes like some blown out leg hems and a clapped-out chamois. Treat yourself to these shorts and enjoy the pain-free miles ahead. Folks won't be hesitant to follow your wheel in a paceline after you bin your old shorts and start donning these stellar shorts.Pearl Izumi constructs the Elite Escapes with strategic use of its PRO and Select transfer fabrics ensuring moisture is rapidly pulled away from your skin as you ride. Lycra gives these shorts their sleek form-fit and allows for excellent movement throughout your pedal stroke. Pearl Izumi chose a wide waistband, which is slightly more flattering and offers superior comfort and support.That hard-shell taco you call a chamois is replaced with Pearl Izumi's excellent Elite Escape 1:1 chamois. It offers a smooth, next to skin feel with a free-floating 4-way stretch sheet and 2-layer suspension core for all-day comfort. Silicone front grippers keep tan lines in check while the elastic back holds the hems without constriction. BioViz reflective elements on the sides and back ensure you are visible in fleeting light.
