Quest Short

You resolved that this would be the year you'd get into cycling, and whether you've bought or borrowed a two-wheeled steed, you're going to need something to wear when you ride it. Start out with the Pearl Izumi Quest Short. Kind to the budget but built for comfort, this entry-level short won't push the envelope by making you commit to bib straps just yet. As you get the feel for your bike on warm summer evenings, the Quest's moisture-wicking SELECT Transfer fabric will keep you cool and dry, while its redesigned SELECT Escape 1:1 Chamois' rolling topography provides a mix of cushioning, support, and relief as you adjust to the feel of your saddle. It won't stop you from getting saddle sore during your first few weeks, but it'll help.

  • Embrace a new hobby with this versatile entry-level short
  • Form-fitting cut allows fabric to rapidly wick moisture
  • Plush multi-density chamois lends support and cushion
  • Silicone-printed leg grippers secure legs in place
  • BioViz reflective accents help you stand out on dim roads

They're just OK shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

These are low quality shorts for Pearl Izumi, but I do find them comfortable. I paid $37.50 in May 2021 and would not pay $50 for them now (July 2021). A 33% price increase is unjustified. The claimed inseam is 9.5 inches; however, once pulled on, they fit more like an 8 inch inseam.

Hi Chris! Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry to hear they are just OK! We always want you to be fully satisfied with your purchases! I've reached out to you to get you sorted.

Very satisfied

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

The first time I wore these shorts, I wondered how my ride would go. Two hours later, as I put my bike back on my car rack, I realized I had not thought about my shorts once while riding. I had no discomfort or any other problem with the shorts. Materials and workmanship seem good also.

Good short; price is right

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

Just work. Fit is good (waist and hem stay put), they're comfortable enough, and they look as pictured (it's hard to mess black up, thankfully). Padding is a bit basic or flat compared PI's higher-end offerings, but it's still more than good enough.

Great affordable bike shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These shorts have been great for me for the past three years. They are comfortable and I have no complaints. They are holding up great. At the price, these are a great buy.

Comfy

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought as a gift. Great for those who are active in bicycling. Comfortable.

Great for road biking

    Natural Waist:
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Hip:
