The Canyon Short has a bit shorter inseam with a design meant for casual trail or path use for those of the collection and finds use both on the trails or on bike paths for those riders less comfortable in form fit pieces.
I have an older pair of Pearl Izumi Canyon Gray/black which I love. So of course I decided to order another pair (Olive this time). They arrived a day early much to my delight (of course I was anxious). Ok, so the first thing I noticed was that there were no inner tights like my older pair also they were about 2 inches longer. They do come with inner straps on either side of the pants, i guess to accommodate a specific type of inner tights. Come on guys you need to include the tights just like the older Canyons did, I am very disappointed about that. The 3 stars was for the early arrival.See comparison pics attached.
These shorts have 2 velcro cinches that can tighten the fit a bit. They take me longer to put on then other bike shorts because I have to line up the legs of the liner with the pant legs of the shorts - but a few extra seconds is well worth it, I find these shorts super comfortable and I don't feel like I'm offending everyone's sensibilities wearing them in a grocery store. Really nice to have a zippered pocket as well. Love these so much I bought a second pair after my first week of use.
I am no expert on riding shorts as this is the first pair I have owned. I have always used regular cargo shorts with a separate pair of chamois shorts underneath. After using these, I never realized just how uncomfortable my cargo shorts were. These are super light, stretchy, and moisture wicking. I do wish they had another front pocket, but it's not that big a deal. I will not be riding in cargo shorts again and may be buying a second pair of these.
They're great. The pocket is big enough to hold stuff (car keys and a wallet if you wanted) and the padding is thick enough to actually work. Ima order some more.
Fairly comfortable riding shorts. I use them on my road and mountain bikes. The blue was on sale (I'm a cheapie) and though a very ugly shade, the shorts are alright.
Great shorts. Comfortable, lightweight and durable. Only minor flaw is they only have one zippered pocket on right hand side. I can get keys, phone and wallet in it, but it's stuffed at that point, and you have trouble pulling anything out. I would still buy another pair though.
Would have loved these shorts. I followed the chart and they ended up to be too big. The price jumped before I could get another pair. I ended up with black. I did a 4 hr mountain bike ride and I was very pleased with them.
Los compré extremandamente baratos. El short es un poco amplio pero muy cómodo. La licra es lo mejor! mucho muy cómoda. El color es bonito. Uso mediano, los compré M y me quedaron perfectos.
Buena calidad y la talla es conforme a lo esperado, fácil de lavar ya que se pueden separar el short y la licra
