Pro level comfort.

Setting out to make their Escape short even more comfortable and breathable than the P.R.O. In-R-Cool it replaces, Pearl Izumi incorporated features previously only available in the top-of-the-line pro kit. The P.R.O. Escape short provides everything you need to get away from the distractions of everyday life and focus on the ride.

While this short ticks 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.

Aero saddles come at an expense to comfort. P.R.O. Escape Shorts is worth more than money. Put the two together and you spent your money the best it can be spent. No manner how many miles the day has in store for me, these shorts make it happen!

Comfortable chamois, fabric is cooler, but not as supportive.
by NDOpus

As usual, PI's top-of-the-line shorts have a comfortable chamois, and the fabric is cool and breathable. But it seems that they sacrificed support. The fabric is not a strong and supportive as the previous P.R.O. fabric, which on a long ride can make a difference.

These shorts are very compression but not overly compressive. The material breathes well. The chamois is well padded and has no seams.

P.I. slowly but very obviously lowering quality
by Lee-M

These shorts were recommended to me by Pearl Izumi customer service, after they discontinued the P.R.O. In-R-Cool short. I have observed a sad trend from the company for the past few years when modifying their shorts in the same price range - sometimes while retaining the same model name - they are using lower quality components, specifically the chamois. They did this a few years ago with their Select Attack shorts - they went from being comfortable for 30 miles to only about 20 miles, with the P.R.O. Escape shorts, the chamois is a lot wider than that to which I am accustomed, but with much less cushion. I don't think they sell a more expensive short, if that is what it is going to take to get the same quality... I suppose I need to look at a different brand.

Great shorts especially in warm weather
by Biking Joe

Souderton, Pa.

Sizing is getting more difficult amongst Manufacturers. I am 5'10, 176 lbs. in ride season. Louis Garneau large used to fit great. Now the LG's I tried were too tight and short in leg length. I tried Assos, for me they were cut strangely. Tried other pairs and then I saw these Pearl Izumi PRO Escape on sale. I do not have large legs but still ordered XL as PRO I was told more a Race Fit. They do fit me well, unfortunately I am somewhere between a Large and XL. The XL fits decently, just not perfectly. Large was too tight for me. The weather I wore the first 2 rides was in the 90's and high humidity. These shorts wick moisture fantastically and chamois offers great comfort. A draw string would have been nice. Still a great pair of shorts.

PI Shorts keep getting better

This latest rendition in 2017 corrected the sizing problem of PI's previous year's top of the line short. The Large I had was more like a Medium. I always buy the top of the line PI shorts for maximum comfort and the chamois in them has steadily improved over the years.

Just completed a 125 mile ride with about 13000 feet of climbing. The plush padding in these shorts provides super comfort for long hard rides. Liked the so much that bought a second pair.

Excellent Cycling Shorts
by Fred

These shorts are a high quality short with good padding for a comfortable ride. They do run slightly small, but you will probably still want to order your normal size recognizing they might be a slight more snug (which I like). These shorts would be good for the the casual rider or the competitive racer which I am. Recommended!

Most Comfortable Sorts on the Market

I use for training and for riding. I recently purchased top of the product line shorts from Assos, Sugoi, and Pearl Izumi. The PI PRO Escape Shorts are easily the most comfortable.
