Ride whatever you want

The versatile Pearl Izumi Women’s Attack Short is designed for those of us who like to ride everything – and who prefer do so without spending a fortune. The Attack Short made with Select Transfer fabric, which features excellent moisture wicking properties to keep you dry and comfortable. The Attack also offers a unique eight-panel anatomic design, a wide waistband, flat-lock seams, and silicone grippers on the legs to deliver added comfort and support. In addition, reflective elements are placed throughout the Attack to ensure visibility in low-light conditions.

Pearl Izumi includes the Race 3D chamois, which uses variable-density foam and breathable four-way stretch fabric to help you power through long days in the saddle. The Race 3D has been pre-shaped for an anatomic fit and does an excellent job managing moisture.

Best bike shorts I've owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are super great. I've had a pair PI shorts that I thought I loved, and then I got these. Miles above any shorts I've gotten, especially for under $50 (yay sale!). They don't ride up at all, chamois is super comfortable; I truly have nothing negative that I could say about these.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am obsessed with these! I have lots of different biking shorts and always pull these out first from my closet to wear! Love how they fit and love the high waist:)

Good quality and good fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: X-Small

In my experience, Pearl Izumi makes good quality apparel priced below some of the Italian competitors. The shorts fit well, with a chamois comfortable on longer rides. The waistband doesn't pinch when you're in the saddle, and the shorts come up high enough that there isn't a gap between them and the jersey.

Can wear these all day

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

I bought these based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Normally when I ride I adjust positions and stand for a few seconds because I am uncomfortable, however with these I feel like I can go all day and have not had to adjust my positioning at all. They are the most comfortable shorts I own and I ended up buying a second pair.

Did not disappoint

The shorts here are beautifully crafted and fit perfect. Great compression and incredibly breathable.

Love it So Far

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Going off the original fit out of the box - these are wonderful. The fit is true, and bands are snug without cutting into my waist or thighs and being super unflattering. I've never worried much about saddle sore for casual/workout rides, but upon scheduling a 200+ mile gravel trail trip I knew I had to cave.

Pearl Izumi Attack Short - Women's

Great shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I broke these in on a 6 day Hawaiian bike trip riding 30-50 miles/day in the sun and rain. They are well padded and fit the way I like bike shorts to fit. Which is with a high waist and not too short. Most importantly, I was never seat sore with these shorts.

Great shorts for the price!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These shorts are great! They fit me perfect! I'm 5'1" and 90 lbs and typically have difficulty finding clothing that fits. They also keep me very comfortable on rides 25+ mile rides. The fabric is very good quality, very durable and has survived a couple of wrecks. You also cannot beat the price! I would recommend these to anyone!
