Pearl Izumi Elite Versa Shorts Pro Review

I love these shorts, plain and simple. They are extremely comfortable, and are made of an excellent stretching fabric that doesn’t bind, no matter what you are doing on the bike. They stretch this way and that, and allow any sort of contortion that you can maneuver them through. The short’s slide easily along on the saddle like they are made of silk, and are tacky enough to adhere when needed. Continue reading →

Strengths:    Comfort!!! removable liner, very usefull pockets.

Weaknesses:    Some stitching came out.

Bottom Line:   
The first time I put these shorts on, I felt like I was finally home. It's tough for a guy my size (6'3", 260-270) to find shorts that fit, let alone feel good. I have been very impressed with these duds- so impressed that I sometimes take out the liner and just wear them around. I tore out some of the stitching in the crotch while doing something non-bike related in a posture you would only find yourself in in a big crash. The stitching could easily be mended by anyone who knows how to use a machine.
The cargo pockets are suttle yet deep and very user-friendly. I keep my phone on me at all times and in the lower pockets I never know it's there.
After riding in these one time I imediately ordered a second pair.

Strengths:    Great liner, the stretch fabric is great, feels like riding a spandex bike short

Weaknesses:    The snap does not stay snapped very well.

Bottom Line:   
These shorts are great, they feel like spandex shorts and have all of the benefits of spandex with the style factor of regular shorts. My only complaint is the snap does not work well so you have to wear a belt.
