Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seem good, not sure if the new chamois is better I've had 3 pairs of the Elite Inner Cool bibs before this pair of Elite Escapes. I like the feel of the fabric on these better - it is smoother and seems like the tightness is more uniform. The new silicone grippers work well and are very comfortable. The chamois is a bit different - a smooth top to it and slightly thinner based on direct comparison with the Elite Inner Cools. I've done two rides of about 40 miles each and haven't had problems, but I'm not sure the chamois is quite as good as the previous contoured shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pearl Izumi still getting better I've been wearing PI shorts a long time, in fact they're the only shorts I own now. Quality keeps going up while keeping the price extremely reasonable. Love these shorts

Are the designs on the bottom of the leg reflective, or is it only the logo?

Asked by: bikerider
​The logo is the only piece of reflective material on these bike shorts.
