Pearl Izumi ELITE Pursuit LTD Cycling Bib Shorts (For Men)
Closeouts. Pedal your way to the head of the pack in Pearl Izumi's ELITE Pursuit LTD cycling bib shorts -- constructed of moisture-wicking, breathable ELITE Transfer fabric, and featuring an ELITE Pursuit 1:1 Chamois with high-density cushioning and four-way stretch for optimal movement and comfort.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by AllDirtAlltheTime from Boise, ID on Saturday, April 28, 2018-The short is comfortable and the bib straps are soft and feel barely there.
-The leg opening is comfortable but 2" of gripper is overkill IMO.
--These bibs would be fine without the silicone.
-The chamois is OK, but the center area is on the narrow side.
-Pearl Izumi sizing is always off for me. I have a 30" waist,/no gut, but wear medium which is 32-34.
-Overall they are easily worth $50...I love STP prices!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jai Rawat from California on Tuesday, March 6, 2018I didn't really ride in them. I put them on to go for a ride and it was 34 degrees outside so I had to put on a few layers. Then I decided to go to the restroom before my ride and realized what a pain it was!! I had take off all the layers to get to the suspenders.
May be ok to use them in summer when you are not layered up.
Reviewed by Stephen from North Carolina on Sunday, June 4, 2017I own several PI cycling bibs and bought this pair for my long rides. I wore them three times: on a 50-mile, a 65-mile, and a 30-mile ride. Each time, the bibs caused a pretty mean case of chafing, so I guess I'm going to give these to someone and see if that person has better luck with them. Note: these bibs fit tighter than the Pearl Izumi bibs I've purchased in medium.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Michael from Kansas City MO on Monday, May 29, 2017The fit is well. Quality seems to be great.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ognila from Ohio on Tuesday, April 18, 2017I have been a cyclist for a number of years and have always worn just the shorts. I am now a true convert to bibs. Way better fit and support. Then there is the brand. I have tried some cheaper brands than Pear Izumi and some just as, or more, costly. The PIs just seem to last longer and are more comfortable. These ones are very good and a great buy at this price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dsssurferdude from Michigan on Friday, February 24, 2017I have put 50 road miles and about 100 trainer miles on these bibs and I am very impressed with the comfort and fit of the chamois. the wide leg bands keep the bottoms in place and the wide shoulder straps are comfortable.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by bike to work guy from Florida on Friday, December 30, 2016Great product for a very good price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Jackson Hole on Thursday, November 10, 2016I use PI bib shorts for touring; for me they are the most comfortable and well made shorts available. I generally prefer the Elite fabrics over the P.R.O. fabrics but prefer the P.R.O. chamois. Since in this case only both had the Pursuit 1.1 Chamois, I bought this pair. By a side-by-side comparison, the only difference I could detect between the P.R.O. Pursuit 1.1 Chamois and the Elite Pursuit 1.1 Chamois in these bibs is the color. Both are equally comfortable to me on a 60 mile ride.
