Pearl Izumi modeled its women's Pursuit Attack Bib Shorts after its elite Attack Bib Shorts, offering riders a more affordable version of the elite level design for everyday training rides. With a classic eight-panel construction made out of Pearl Izumi's SELECT Transfer Dry fabric, these bib shorts are an everyday workhorse that'll reliably pull moisture away from your skin as you sweat to keep you cool and comfortable. Pearl Izumi includes a drop tail design, so if you've never worn bibs before and are hesitant to relinquish the convenience of regular shorts, the Pursuit Attack promises to make on-the-go nature calls quicker and easier than you'd expect them to be with bibs.

To make sure you receive the support and cushioning you need throughout long days spent in the saddle, Pearl Izumi includes its soft, stretchy 3D Race Chamois, featuring foam arranged in a strategic topography acting as a loyal barrier between you and your saddle. A standard eight-inch inseam and silicone leg grippers provide you with secure leg coverage as well as protection from the sun, and reflective accents help to increase your visibility for the rides that last longer than you expect them to.

Straps too short

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

At 5'3", this was my first experience with bib straps being too short. I always get XS in all brands of bibs, and the fit of the actual shorts was very good. If you're shorter than me, you'll probably like these.

Fine shorts, don't like the drop tail

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Shorts themselves are fine but I didn't see in the description that these are drop tail - meaning the bib is not actually connected to the shorts in the back. This allows you to pull the shorts down to go to the bathroom without having to take your jersey off and take the bibs off of your shoulders. In my opinion, this kind of defeats the purpose of having the bib. With these drop tail shorts, you still have a lot of elastic around the waist, which I think gets uncomfortable during long rides.

True To Size- very comfortable

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

Consistent sizing across the brand makes it an easy to order item. These were comfortable for a 70 mile ride, and are my new go to shorts!
