With a 15 inch inseam for plenty of all mountain riding coverage, the Pearl Izumi Launch shorts have a relaxed silhouette designed to accommodate additional leg pads if needed. The blended nylon ripstop fabric used in the body of the shorts is durable enough for the trail while still providing the right amount of stretch, and the detachable interior mesh liner is a lightweight polyester blend with adjustable venting on the thighs to help manage temperature during your ride. A snap front closure with zip fly helps keep the shorts in place, and the option of back waist adjustment allows you to customize them to get just the right fit. The removable liner includes Pearl Izumi's 3D Tour Chamois, which is made with dual density padding to make sure irritation doesn't cut your ride short. The four way stretch polyester blend helps wick moisture away from the skin for breathability during your ride, and the detachable liner also provides you with the option to wear the Launch Short as a standalone casual short, or to switch the 3D Tour chamois to any other pair of riding shorts. Two zippered hand pockets and a zippered thigh security pocket round out the design of the Pearl Izumi Launch Shorts, making sure your essentials stay with you as you move.
