Very happy with these shoes. Lightweight, comfortable, Boa closures are nice. Everything works as it should and sizing chart was accurate. Not as ultrastiff as my old shimano carbon soled shoes, but only slightly less stiff, lighter and better closures on these Pearl Izumis.
To be candid, I bought this bib thinking it came with a chamois and was disappointed when I realized that it didn't. That was my mistake. I was going for a night ride that night with temps in the high 40's and really needed the extra layer. I buried my frustration and reluctantly suited up for the ride. I could not have been more surprised and pleased with how comfortable and warm they kept me. Pearl Izumi has always agreed with my body type and this bib was no different. I was warm and comfortable for the one hour ride. I went from frustration to total satisfaction in one ride. I highly recommend these if you need the warmth and protection.
As a serious cyclist for the past 40 years, I've come to appreciate spending the extra cash for quality. The one part of my body I prefer experiences no suffering is my 'nether region'. I have been an Assos and Giordana guy for years, however, it seems as though $200 doesn't buy me the quality I used to get. I saw that the Pursuit bibs were on sale so decided to give them a go. One word best describes them 'Outstanding!' I am averaging 200 miles weekly right now and I usually rotate my bibs throughout the week. I'm finding I will search for the Pursuit bibs anytime I'm doing more than 50 miles. Very comfortable at 80 miles with no chafing, no numbness, no pain. These are now my go to shorts and plan to purchase more.
