The Pearl Izumi Men's Cargo Bib Liner Shorts improves ventilation versus traditional Road shorts, but also adds integrated storage with three rear jersey-type pockets and two lower pockets on the thigh for trail essentials, like water, tools, and spare tubes. The superior ELITE Escape 1:1® Chamois takes saddle comfort to a whole new level. Many experienced riders have opted for the comfort of road bibs under shell shorts for years. They prefer the feel of a bib, but Road shorts are not made to be covered with a durable shell short, and the combination can be warmer than ideal. The Pearl Izumi Men's Cargo Bib Liner Shorts up the game so you can ditch your hydration pack for all but your longest rides.
