Pearl Izumi Elite drop tail bibs (women's) review
These women’s specific shorts combine the comfort of bibs – meaning no tight waistband pressing against the stomach as you ride – with the convenience of normal shorts.
The straps and bib rear are made from Pearl Izumi’s Elite Transfer mesh fabric and stay pretty sweat free, while the polyester/Lycra shorts feel comfortable and stretchy.
The pad is wide for your sit bones but then gets quite narrow, which won’t suit everyone.
The deep hems keep the legs in place, helped by silicone Pearl Izumi logos and swirls.
