Pearl Izumi has taken many of the features found in their most sophisticated cycling shorts and combined them in this value-packed rider favorite. It’s cut from a fabric made with recycled Nylon yarns, and we’ve used the material’s natural stretch to reduce seams and increase comfort while simultaneously creating a stellar fit for even the most dynamic riding. To ensure comfort, it includes our highly breathable, stretchable, SELECT Escape 1:1 chamois.

Note: These shorts run small. Consider sizing up if you are between sizes.


  • SELECT Transfer fabric made with recycled Nylon
  • Reduced paneling and seams, plus raw-edge bib straps, enhance comfort
  • SELECT Escape 1:1 Chamois provides optimal moisture transfer and breathability
  • BioViz reflective elements for low-light visibility

Pearl Izumi Men's Attack Shorts (Black) (M)
Up size. I am 160#, 32"-33" waist, 5'-11. Fit guide shows medium, which is what I typically wear in lycra shorts. I couldn't even get these over my hips.

Pearl Izumi Men's Attack Shorts (Black) (M)
What? Medium - same as the other review - can't even get them over my hips! They might fit a 10 year old boy! Worst yet - no response from 2 emails sent to Customer Service and numerous phone calls (longer than a 10 min hold)! You lost me as a customer!

Pearl Izumi Men's Attack Shorts (Black) (S)
I've got the same issue as the previous reviewer, I have a 29" waist, the size chart shows a small - I could BARELY squeeze them on. Re-ordered a medium. Performance was very generous and applied the sales price and discount code of the original order to the replacement.

Pearl Izumi Men's Attack Shorts (Black) (XL)
Tiny!!!! I mean, you’d have to be 7 year old to fit into their XL shorts! ?

Pearl Izumi Men's Attack Shorts (Black) (L)
Thanks to previous reviewers, I ordered a size up and am so thankful to the previous reviewers. I am a solid Medium. I ordered a Large and it fits like a Medium. PI definitely have incorrect size chart posted.
Otherwise the shorts seem nice. I haven't worn them yet on a ride. Hopefully I can update this review after that. I wanted to get the size warning posted quickly.

Pearl Izumi Men's Attack Shorts (Black) (S)
Purchased these shorts many times over the years. These shorts purchased May 2021 are NOT the quality I was used too. Something changed. They are smaller and the padding is just not the same quality. VERY Disappointed. I've had probably 20 pairs of these over many years. I'd like to return for last years model ???

Measurement Guide:

  1. Chest- Measure circumference around fullest part, across bust points, keeping the tape horizontal
  2. Waist- Measure circumference around the narrowest part (typically the small of the back where the body bends to the side), keeping tape horizontal
  3. Hips- Measure circumference around fullest part of hips keeping the tape measure horizontal

Measurement Guide Notes:

  • Use the chart to determine size
  • If measurements are between two sizes, sizing down will provide a tighter fit while sizing up will provide a looser fit
  • If the measurements for the chest and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, choose the size indicated by the chest measurement
  • If measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, choose the size indicated by the hip measurement
