Cute in their simplicity, the Canyon Shorts from Pearl Izumi provide great comfort while in the saddle. The fabric is light, durable, and breathable, with a wide-stretch waistband that fits snug. The detachable chamois is thin, but provides cushion in the right places. The two zippered pockets—below the hips and on the side of the thighs—helps keep items secure. The sizing seems to run small, so make sure to try them on. Available online; $90.
