Pearl Izumi Symphony Women's Shorts - $76.97

If you are examining the line of Pearl Izumi women's shorts and trying to figure out the difference between the Elite Shorts and Symphony Shorts, take a look at the cut. Both shorts employ the same Elite transfer materials and Elite 3D chamois, but the Pearl Izumi Symphony Women's Shorts have their own multi-panel design that walks that line between form-fitting performance and all-out comfort. As with the Women's Elite In-R-Cool, the Women's Symphony Shorts includes the Women's Elite 3D Chamois. This comfort-oriented pad is designed for riders who get out anywhere from three to seven days in a week. It is pre-shaped to fit the contours of a woman's body and even has slightly thicker (13mm) padding than the P.R.O. Seamless Chamois for a touch more protection. The Pearl Izumi Pressure Relief Technology ensures that the pad won't cut off your circulation. The pad's four-way stretch will keep it moving with you and wicking sweat so that you won't have to worry about irritating, saddle-sore-causing friction, while the active carbon yarns improve thermoregulation and keep static-induced fatigue to a minimum. The stretchy Elite Transfer fabric in the Symphony Women's Shorts offers a great combination of moisture management capabilities with the special In-R-Cool technology that reflects direct sunlight to lower the fabric's temperature to reduce body surface temperature by up to 5%. All of this you'll find also with the Women's Elite In-R-Cool shorts; where you'll start noticing the differences is when you take a look at the cut and paneling. The waistband has contoured give you a flattering yet comfortable shape, and widened so you won't feel any undue pressure on your tummy. A side pocket has been included so that you can keep super-important things like your keys right with you. The inseam has been shortened to eight inches from the nearly nine inch inseam you'll find on the Elite In-R-Cool shorts. - $76.97
