Women end your bib short strike!

If your a woman and would love to wear bib shorts but don’t due to having to take off your jersey every time you need to potty. Pearl Izumi has an answer to your problems. I picked up a pair of Ws Drop Tail Cycling Bib shorts at Mike’s Bikes last week.

I tried them on in the store but didn’t realize they had this flap in the butt seam until I got them home. After a quick visit to Pearl Izumi’s site I found out that the  flap/opening in the horizontal butt seam was a “Drop tail for convenience“. I decided to give them a shot and wore them on my next ride. I already have a pair of the Pro bib shorts from Pearl Izumi with the thicker chamois so it was nice to find the chamois in the Elite model shorts were just as comfortable. My first visit to the restroom was spectacular! The flap was indeed made for “convenience”! From now on this will be the ONLY bib shorts I will EVER buy! THANK YOU PEARL IZUMI!
