Pearl Izumi Veer Shorts - $169.95

Pearl Izumi's Veer Shorts were designed to give you the ultimate in all-day comfort and riding support. As Izumi's top-end trail shorts, the Veer incorporates an anatomic paneling design, Pearl Izumi's most advanced materials, and a chamois-equipped removable bib liner. This level of versatility results in you being covered for almost any riding situation imaginable. The top block of the shorts received Pearl Izumi's Transfer Stretch fabric. This lightweight, breathable material provides exceptional moisture transfer and moves with you as you ride. Its built-in stretch works to eliminate bunching around your upper-thighs, which means less friction and more comfort throughout your riding sessions. Transfer Stretch is also very durable and abrasion-resistant, meaning that you'll be reaching for the Veer shorts for more than a few seasons. Direct-Vent paneling was added below the Transfer Stretch in order to provide you with further ventilation and to keep your legs cool and dry. And while many trail shorts use a baggy fit to combat restricting effects of pedaling motions, Pearl Izumi smartly targeted these high friction zones using its blend of Transfer Stretch and Direct-Vent paneling. This design allowed it to build a pair of shorts that eliminate skin-irritation and friction, while maintaining a semi-fitted construction. The result is a pair of shorts with a 13-inch inseam (size Medium) that fall in that middle ground of looseness -- slightly more tapered than all-mountain baggies, but still providing ample leg openings for freedom of movement. Pearl Izumi's Mountain Series 3D chamois was incorporated into the shorts' detachable bib liner. This four-way stretch insert is pre-shaped, and it blends two layers of variable-density padding in order to provide you with maximum support. The chamois also uses Pearl Izumi's Pressure Relief Technology (PRT), which optimizes blood flow and increases overall riding comfort. - $169.95
