    Best freaking liners ever! I have tried a few other brands, and I wish I started with these. They work great under baggies so I don't look like an overweight roadie. comfortable for every style of riding

    Pros
    Comfortable
    Work great under baggies as a liner

    Cons
    nothing

    I've had a couple of these shorts for a long time now. They look as good as they did when I got them. I really do think they'll last longer than I will. As has been mentioned, great materials, very well made equals a great fit. If you wear spandex shorts, these are what you want. Get a pair and see for yourself.

    Pros
    Great quality
    Great fit
    Last forever

    Cons
    None

    These shorts are great. The tight fit of these allows more blood flow to the quads than baggy shorts. What makes these better than the other Pearl Izumi shorts is the number of pieces sewn together to make them. The more pieces, the better the fit and flex. When pedaling, these shorts do not slide, nor rub the insides of you thighs. These are a great pair of shorts if you are looking for a pair of spandex riding shorts.

    Pros
    Fit
    Number of pieces
    Shammy

    Cons
    Have to air dry

    Got it from LBS for 70% Off - good deal. That was a major reason to give lycra shorts a try. I use this shorts over a year on either short rides or an all-day Epics and don't even thinking of getting anything different. Padding not bulky yet absorbs every impact which allows to stay in the saddle for 50-60 miles (my longest rides yet) without any saddle sore. Even in the hottest days I feel myself cool. And when temperature drops below freezing you won't noticed 'em under regular pants.
    Sure, after a year of use there're some signs of wear but still looks fine.
    Overal great shorts.

    Pros
    Comfort, breathable, long-lasting

    Cons
    "Elite" letters peeled off after third ride if this could be an issue for somebody. Not for me.
    Price is a bit high
