Embrace the sunny summer days.

Saddle up for the sunniest days on the road in the Pearl Izumi ELITE Pursuit Short for women. These lightweight shorts offer a barely-there feel that constantly wicks away sweat, while shielding your gams from harsh UV rays and supporting your muscles when you put down the power up long and tedious climbs. Like we've seen in model years before, these shorts don't shy away from bursts of refreshing colors that brighten up the ride, keeping your kit fun and full of character in a sea of black shorts, and without compromising technical features for fashion.

The ELITE Pursuits rely on Pearl Izumi's ELITE Transfer In-R-Cool fabric to rapidly wick moisture away from your skin as you ride, and the addition of Lycra elastane fibers in the fabric establishes a close, almost second-skin fit around your legs, so you won't have to worry about bunching fabric shifting around as you stand on a punchy climb or shift from drops to hoods to flats during long drags on flat country roads. Silicone leg grippers and a longer nine-inch inseam also serve to provide dependable coverage, while a wide waistband sits comfortably — not oppressively — against your skin as you're stretched over the handlebars.

As you reach for the ELITE Pursuit before a ride, you can depend on the ELITE Pursuit 1:1 Chamois to perform well whether you've worn it three times that week or not since last month. The soft, four-way stretch top layer moves with you as you pedal, while plush, high-density foam promises to dull the harshness of the saddle as you rack up the miles.

size runs small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XS

comfortable fit, but had to return as size ran small. I am 5' tall, 100 pounds, wear size 0/00 in pants, but these shorts in size XS were difficult to slide on and slightly tight in the waist, so I returned them for size small-much better fit!
