Great Shorts
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hiker1000 from Midwest on Monday, June 18, 2018
I wore these on the 2018 Bike Across Kansas Organized Ride. It is a well organized and well run ride. These shorts worked out great! I got a larger size than maybe I needed, as the reviews suggested that. They worked great. And I liked the pop of color!

  • Comfortable but run small
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bill from Kentucky on Thursday, October 11, 2018
    I bought a XL and I'm very happy I did. These fit well but in most bike shorts I buy a large. Even at XL these are snug but they are supposed to be for long rides comfort.

    Great shorts for the money. Training for a half Iron Man and these get the job done.

    The Pearl Izumi Podium bike shorts are great, great fit, look good. Only complaints is the sizing. I have a 34" waist and assumed large would work fine. They were super snug and had to exchange for XL. It was a bit of a hassle to exchange but the size up was so nice I ordered a second pair. I also got lucky with free shipping - score! I definitely recommend, just be aware of sizing problems.
  • Great shorts

    Great shorts at a great price! Had them out Mountain biking a number of times and were very comfortable.
  • Love my Pearl Izumi clothes
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Roberto in Prescott from Arizona on Tuesday, September 18, 2018
    I have bought a number of PI cycling shorts and tops from STP and have never been dissatisfied. These Podium shorts feel great. I've been on 6-7 20-25 mile mtn. bike rides and the best thing I can say is I don't think them the entire time I'm riding. Fit is perfect and the chamois does it's job perfectly. I will say that Pearl Izumi shorts do run smaller than other brands. I normally wear a L in other brand shorts but get XL's in PI. I think I have 5 or 6 PI shorts and they are very durable.

About Pearl Izumi

Before Kinji Shimizu created the first Pearl Izumi cycling apparel, he spent nearly seven days a week on his bike delivering 90 pounds of clothes to customers. He frequently pedaled 38 miles a day. Years later, after his son received a special Italian-made cycling jersey, Kinji was inspired to start creating his own using the best fabrics he could find. The result soon evolved into the Pearl Izumi brand. In the five decades since, the company Kinji founded has continued working hard to make the best gear possible for dedicated athletes and weekend warriors. From incredibly lightweight Pearl Izumi shoes to sleek, comfortable Pearl Izumi running apparel, few other brands have the same relentless drive toward innovation as Pearl Izumi.
