Pro level comfort.

Setting out to improve upon their P.R.O. In-R-Cool bibshort, Pearl Izumi incorporated features previously only available in the top-of-the-line pro kit. The P.R.O. Escape bibshort provides everything you need to get away from the distractions of everyday life and focus on the ride.

While this bib checks the necessary boxes of improved breathability and comfort with their P.R.O. Transfer fabric used throughout the anatomic multi-panel short, the real star of this short is the brand new P.R.O. 1:1™ chamois. Offering extraordinary comfort in a slimmer package, this chamois is topped with a floating top sheet that moves with you as you pedal, significantly reducing friction as your body moves from side to side.


Available in multiple colors. Sizes Small - 2XL.

Stunning Comfort. Chamois, not so Much
by Captjamo
Pensacola, FL
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I moved from my very comfortable PI. Elite bibs to these. I think the reviewers were correct in saying these bibs are comfortable, even luxurious feeling. The comfort level of these bib shorts is ridiculously good. You honestly feel like you are wearing nothing. The straps are like velvet and after a minute of having them on you simply do not know they are there. But, describing all this comfort brings me to the topic of support. The material is so light and comfortable I think it does give up at least a small degree of compression capability and feeling of supportiveness. The chamois is disappointing. It feels like one singular density and not the nicely layered density foam PI is known to have pioneered and put forth in their upper lines of shorts. The singular density feels like simple latex foam cut about 58 inch thick and compresses too easily. Its as though they built such a great bib short they had to cut design cost somewhere and they chose to save money by using plain foam rubber in the chamois. It does kind of glue you to the saddle more than it should or would with a trimmer more layered chamois. It is, however, sewn in the short with very good tucked placement with a very soft liner material. All that said, I believe there will be some that will find this chamois works fine for them. Im a bull in the saddle and, thusly, it does not work well for me. I will still wear these shorts as they are so good in every other way besides the not so good chamois, but I will look for other PI shorts or other brands that have the more layered chamois I look for in a bib short.

Very comfortable
by Tandem

Its been years since Ive worn PI bibs. Ive been making excuses for being uncomfortable in the shorts that Ive been wearing recently. Too hot! No chamois cream, etc. No more! I can now do 30 and 40 mile rides, and Im comfortable. PI discourages the use of chamois cream. I was skeptical, but I am comfortable without it. The cuffs stay in place also.

Works great on the bike
by bicyclek

While the chamois felt huge at first, once on the bike they worked great. The chamois also seemed to stay drier.

The bibs were also a bit snug on the boys, but felt ok while riding. I would consider them the best shorts I've ever owned and would give them a 5 star if it wasn't so snug down below.

Pearl Izumi BIB Shorts

The last pair I purchased, the shoulder straps stained by jersey. After a few rinses got the bleeding to stop. This was my third pair and the first time this happened, will rinse before wearing the next time.

Good overall fit and materials spoiled by terrible chamois
by Jmb9101

2 of 4 customers found this review helpful.

Ive been a long-time user of PI P.R.O. bibs, but this updated version is a bust. The chamois is way too thick, it bunches up, and it makes me squirm around on the saddle to keep it in position. Prior chamois were anatomically shaped, and stayed tight to your skin, allowing you to move freely. This version feels like Dependz (decades before Im supposed to know what that feels like). Not sure why the redesign, but Im looking at other brands for the first time in years.

Nice looking and well made!
by Mark12

I purchased one and liked it so well that I bought two more. I should have waited. The chamois is so thick that it is uncomfortable when out of the saddle. With solid straps they are also a little warm

I ride every day, year round (live in FL) and have many pairs of shorts. Just got around to trying these and I am very pleased. Bought a second pair, and am waiting for the next sale to buy a third!

Comfortable and supportive
by beachbiker52

These are very supportive. They fit a little snug but are comfortable on the ride. I've only worn twice so far, but they appear to be well made with no seams rubbing in the wrong places. I would recommend these. My only reservation is I'm not sure they are that much better than modelsbrands less expensive.

What I've been looking for

It's all about the chamois! After trying a number of different manufacturers over the past few years it has become obvious to me that the chamois makes or breaks a pair of bibs. My personal conclusion is to spend a few extra dollars for an improved ride due to the comfort of the chamois (even for the same brand as I have tried cheaper PI bibs).

Very good but thick chamois
by Tarquin

This is overall a great bib with nice materials and comfort my only small issue is the thickness of the chamois itself. Much thicker than Im used to.

What I've been looking for
by AZbugphd

I have previously used a few different brands of lesser quality bibs. As my mileage has increased I found that they no longer provided the comfort I needed for longer time in the saddle. The P.R.O. Escape bibs were great from the beginning. Of highest importance was the fact that the chamois stayed in place and with its top layer moisture is wicked away. Have since purchased another pair.

Really good chamois

I purchased these for a long ride. Have always bought good quality bibs in the past but never Pearl Izumi. Very impressed with the quality and construction and the chamois. My ride was 550 miles in 6 days and i was having problems with my saddle. They were my go to bibs for the longest days. I will purchase these from now on!!

I love these bibs, they are my go to for all rides. Recently used them on back to back century rides, and they rocked. I already ordered another pair. They fit very true to size with plenty of stretch in the suspenders.

The bibs I bought were to replace another older Pearl pair that had become a little uncomfortable. I have always tried to use the higher end on product for extra comfort. They fit well and yes they are comfortable on longer mileage rides. Well worth the extra cost. No fun to leep riding when your butt hurts. Pearl has always been a great brand for me.
