Equipped with Pearl Izumi's highly breathable premium ELITE Escape 1:1® Chamois for long ride comfort.

Pearl Izumi has changed over the years

I have been purchasing Pearl Izumi shorts for 20 years now and have noticed that the padding has been reduced, however the fabric of the shorts has improved in comfort and flexibility.

Review of Pearl Izumi Men's Interval Short
by CBeach
Cycling Enthusiast

Use this for every day rides. The material is much thinner than their previous models. It does not fit as well at the leg openings. It also is not nearly as comfortable for riding. While it looks similar inside, it does not seem to have the cushioning that previous models had.

This is OK Short
by Jimmy Dee
Cycling Enthusiast

The weight of the material is what you should expect from an intermediately priced short. That said, the quality is high as one should expect from anything made by Pearl Izumi. The pad is great. These shorts do not offer the same high compression you get from their top of the line short made with heavier material. I bought my three pair for indoor training and for that application for me they are terrific.

Highly Recommend
by Anonymous

High quality, long wear, excellent compression, prefer mens short for myself (female) because like longer leg length. Always order year after year.

Recommend Against These Shorts

I have been buying this line of Pearl Izumi mi- priced shorts for probably 15 years, many purchases. Always been happy with them. These are not the same shorts. The material does not feel as strong but the biggest issue is that the vaunted leg grips are not tapered properly and the ends of the shorts are loose on your legs. Who buys these shorts wanting them flapping in the wind while you ride? Others have complained of the same problem, shame on me for not believing their reviews. Very disappointing product from a long time fan. Sent them back.

I've only had these shorts in the winter, so have worn them underneath leggings. They offer really good support and comfort

Not as good as ProsR Cool

At one time Pearl Izumi made pants called Pros R Cool. They were great. They stopped making them. I have not yet found pants that live up to the quality of Pros R Cool. Pearl Izumi if you are reading this please start making them again. I did buy a pair of Interval Short, I sent them back.
