Consisting of six precision-shaped panels of Pearl Izumi’s Select Transfer fabric, the Select Women’s Tri Shorts feature a next-to-skin fit that holds your muscles in place, while still permitting a full-range of motion. Unlike cycling shorts, Pearl Izumi cut the Tri Shorts’ panels so that they won’t hinder a stride or kick. Amazingly, though, they still support efficient pedaling. This is because the shape works in conjunction with Select Transfer’s natural elasticity. Comprised of a nylon and elastane blend, Pearl Izumi engineered the Select Transfer fabric to dry quickly. This encourages more comfort during the transition from water to land. But, just as importantly, it also pulls and evaporates perspiration in order to aid in reducing skin irritation. Another essential feature that keeps the shorts from chafing is Izumi’s TRI quick-dry fleece chamois. This chamois is designed for cycling comfort, however, just as much consideration has gone into how it will perform during the other stages of your race. Its shape is less obtrusive than a typical cycling insert, and it’s also been made more flexible for the run and the swim. So, you’re able to reap the rewards of support in the saddle, without compromising any comfort in your other two disciplines. The Pearl Izumi Select Women’s Tri Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black, Black/lime, and Black/scuba blue.

Go up a size or two. I own several other brands of cycling shorts and decided to order these. I’m a size 2, 110lbs and I couldn’t get one leg in the small. I’m returning those and considering the large. I can’t see the medium fitting much better. I wear LOTS of compression gear and have never had something that tight. Just wanted to post not to follow the sizing charts.

excellent I really liked the fit and feel of the shorts. I used them for my first sprint tri. I ordered a medium but should have gone up a size they were pretty snug. The band around the bottom of the leg had this “sausage” roll effect I wasn’t thrilled with BUT the shorts stayed IN PLACE through all 3 legs of the race. I never adjusted them once. I also like the small pocket in the back which I used to bring Gu on the run.I was over all pleased with these shorts.

Order one size up Love this Pi tri short, I plan to use it for some triathlons that Im doing this year. I agree with the others who suggest to order one size up. I am 5ft4in, 135lbs, and I usually wear a medium, but I ordered a large in this Tri Short and the fit is really perfect for me. I have tried it out in the pool several times and it stays in place due to the thick elastic at the bottom of the legs of the shorts. Id say that ordering one size up ensures that this thick elastic at the bottom doesnt end up…
