Pearl Izumi Elevate Short


Somewhere between cruising through the park and dropping down hills on the European circuit is the way we ride.  With a protective 15” inseam, Elevate pumped us up with four-way stretch to twist, turn and push uphill.  Sold without a liner short, this model masquerades as a lifestyle piece off the trail; two zippered hand pockets plus one center back made for abundant carrying.  Active Junky took them to Chile, finding performance and security with a double-snap waist.

Tester Quote: “Call it good – and beyond – in multiple categories.  Fit is cut for movement without getting sloppy, and the adjustable waistband responded to the day’s layering when Andean winds prompted a tuck, long-sleeve base.  P.I.’s matching CANYON JERSEY added Direct Vent comfort on warmer days; I’d recommend spending a little more for their well-padded liner.
