The best shorts that money can buy.

I've been riding these shorts forever. They have the thickest, firmest chamois. Mine are now 5 years old and I started getting some saddle sores. I bought a new pair to see if the older ones degraded. While they are still thick they are evidently not as firm because the new ones solved the problem. I ride daily. I bought more shorts and now mix riding older ones with newer ones which works. A friend of mine complained of saddle sores recently. I suggested these shorts and he said that they are in a whole other league so it's not just me saying it! Make sure to buy according to their sizing chart. They will be very tight, but this is how they are supposed to fit.

great fit and quality

like any clothing, cycling shorts are very specific to the individual in terms of sizing and fit, but these work great for me.

i'm about 5'9" (175cm) and 133 pounds (60kg), and for me the size small fits really well. they are definitely form fitting (especially at the leg opening) in a way which may take getting used to if it's your first pair with that type of fit, but i quickly got used to them and find them really comfortable now.

the leg grippers work well, the laser cut edge is really nice, and the seams are very smooth all around. these are my first high end cycling shorts, so the chamois is a huge improvement over what i had previously.

they are expensive, but if you're patient you can occasionally find them on sale for 50% off, and even at the more common 25% off, they seem to be a good value for what you get.

These fit great and make my ride comfortable. They are a bit more expensive but seem to last quite a bit longer than other brands.

Not the Old PRO Short

I have a lot of riding gear collected over 20 years. I have always preferred the Pearl Izumi PRO shorts with the "In-R-Cool" and the red chamois. These newer shorts lack the high end design touches of the older PRO shorts: touches like the additional design stitching and leg hem are gone. The newer PRO shorts still have nice interior padding, but they are a plain material, and without any imagination in their design. The old model of PRO short used to stand out, and the material quality was visible, and also palpable when washing them. The new model works, it just looks like a lower-end version of Pearl Izumi shorts. I will only write honest reviews, and these are a slight disappointment considering the price point.

My favorite

This is my favorite of the many shorts I have had over the years. The fit is great; the pad is very comfortable, and it breathes well. I have several pairs. The earlier ones have been very durable, so I expect this one will too.

Love them and hate them

You have to be careful buying the PI shorts. PI ruined them with the 2019 design, which are too small and you cet the plumber�s crack effect. They fixed this with the 2022 design by adding a 1 inch waist band, but they are still a bit tight. I love the Shamir. It is very well padded. I wish that PI had stayed with the 2017 design.

Fits a bit tighter than other Pearl shorts or tights (wear large usually W=35, Hips=37) but comfortable once on and riding. Pad provides good comfort.

Not Form Fit and Good Leg Length/Grippers

I bought an XL which size chart says is for waist sizes 33 - 37.5. My waist is about 36 inches and these were too big - both too roomy and too long. Good leg length and silicone grippers. Quality seemed good for PRO level shorts but no riding experience yet.
