Black P. Petite - 5 inch Inseam Padded Bike Short
(formerly Black Pearl)



Made in U.S.A.

The Black P. Bike short is made from tricot knit fabric that is highly aerodynamic and hydrodynamic. The microfiber nylon is 84% micro-denier Nylon and 16% Spandex. It is beefy weight and offers supreme compression for enhanced blood flow.

The compression supports muscles and movement. This reduces muscle fatigue and lactic acid buildup. This blend of nylon fibers allows for a very soft feel that dries instantly and "sweats well" during your workout. The slick surface reduces wind drag and promotes aerodynamics for speed and energy efficiency. By Aero Tech Designs

black pearl cycling chamois padThe Black P. Bike Short's Chamois is very comfortable to absorb shock and prevent abrasion.

It is made of long lasting engineered pads for anti-shock and comfort. This shock absorbing cellular urethane is designed to absorb shock for the life of the short. It is breathable in that it lets water vapor and perspiration move away from the body. This pad resists abrasion, is smooth and wrinkle free. The black padding will not change its properties with usage and will not harden or soften with use. The molded foam cells are "open cell structure" which allow water transportation while maintaining its ability to absorb shock without bottoming out.

Foams: High Impact Perforated for Air Flow
Thickness 8 mm total thickness on sit bones with 80 kg density
2 Dimensional 8 mm 3 mm side anti chafe wings with 40 kg density
Density 80 kg and 40 kg
Fabric: 80% Nylon 20% Spandex

These are my go-to shorts
I love these, I have short legs and I need a shorter short. I ride every single day if possible.
ProsThe inseam!!! I would love to have bibs based on these shorts, with the 5" inseam Short people love to ride too!!!!!
ConsThe only thing, the place on the back of the shorts right where your butt crack is, wears thin after a while. My husband told me that he could see my butt right through the shorts. It would be great if they could be reinforced on the back above the pad. When I stand over my bike the seat rubs that spot on my shorts, and therefore rubs it thin.
Best UsesAnything on a bike.....

Finally a short short
Great leg length. Had to upsize though due to thigh constriction with my usual size lg. The xl fits perfect. Good chamois comfort.
Best UsesUse with both my MTB and road bikes

Perfect for the many of us with short inseam
speaking for the many short men who suffer regular short that often fall just above the knees I can say this model finally fit perfectly where it should.
ProsThe material is great and fits properly. They give my muscle the right constriction and they stop mid-thigh which is perfect
ConsI wish you would make a bib .. Why don't you
Best UsesI like to wear the short on road or at the track. They come handy in the summer.The padding is right and the support is adequate

Cooler summer riding
Length is the big thing here for me. These are shorter than most riding shorts and in warm, humid summer riding, these hep keep air moving over more leg area keeping me more comfortable. Chamois seems adequate. Will be purchasing more.
ProsShorter length

Good after getting size right.
I don't like a lot of compression so I usually order large bike shorts instead of my usual medium. In this case, I had to order extra large to get my preferred fit. Thanks for offering a shorter-than-usual bike short for those of us who don't think shorts should come down to our knees!

Works for Guys, Too
I like a shorter bike short to avoid lower tan lines, and I decided to try these, since they don't make them this short for guys. I'm only 5'7", and these came a little more than halfway down my thigh. I couldn't tell the difference in fit between my regular bike shorts and these, and these definitely don't look like ":sugar shorts" on me. Quality material and decent pad.
ProsCan't tell they are women's shorts, even on a guy. Shorter than the usual inseam, but not too short.
ConsWould like them in a bib style.
Best UsesRoad use in on those hot, sunny summer days.

PURCHASED FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING
Nice to have shorter inseam option... I'm 6'2" 190lb so pretty lean. That being said, the bottom tape on the short is a bit too small for my thighs... I purchased large, but could perhaps fit better into extra large.
ProsMade in USA!

Great shorts
I am about 5'10" with 33 inch waist and the medium size fits perfectly. As for the padding, they don't feel quite as well padded as my other longer cycling shorts so not quite as comfortable to me for longer rides. The trade-off...these feel much better and cooler in the hot humid weather than those that go down almost to the knees, so they will be my go-to shorts for summer cycling. I will go back to the longer, heavier padded shorts in the cooler weather.
ProsVery comfortable length and sizing.
ConsNot quite as well padded as some other longer types.

Just OK
I wanted a shorter bicycle riding short that could be worn under my regular summer attire on casual rides where I did not want to be in just bicycle apparel. The shorts work well but area little too tight on my thighs.
ProsA nice shorty short.
ConsJust a little to snug on the thighs.

Padded shorts
I love these as I didn't want long ones and the padding is comfortable for longer rides. I owned a pair from years back and were same idea, so I figure why not get a second pair. I don't know if there the best. I never owned a different brand. This is all I see in the petite.

Best Short Tights
These tights are great. A better length going about half way down the thigh. Good quality fabric construction and pad. Best tights I've found.||Could be improved with slightly better fit though certainly not an issue. I'm 6 foot 195 pounds and 32 inch waist and got these in size large. They are just a little tight in the hips and thighs and loose in the waist.

Great Shorts
I have short legs and a long torso so the traditional shorts are always too long for me; they usually go down to my knees and the elastic doesn't grip my leg. These shorts on the other hand are perfect and fall about 2 inches about the knee. Love them.

Very nice!
These are my first shorts from this company. I have tried many many other brands. I am impressed with the initial comfort and quality. I purchased these for the shorter length which can be difficult to find. Thank you for offering the shorter length!

Most comfortable shorts I have ever used
I have at least 6 pairs of padded biking shorts but end up using these on every ride. I'm going to pick up 2 more pair.||I have at least 50 rides in them and they are holding up great even in my off road adventures/crashes.

Finally a cycling short that fits!
While I am average height for a man I happen to be blessed with a very short inseam and a very long torso. This makes typical cycling shorts come well below my knee. It is so uncomfortable and frustrating having to pull shorts up constantly while I ride. These shorts are great. Finally a cycling short with a short inseam (5-inches). The fit is fantastic. I don't look like someone from the 70's we

Finally a shorter bike short!
I like these shorts and will be buying more. I am short 5'4". Most shorts are simply way to long for my torso. Very difficult to find bike shorts that I feel comfortable in. I do wish they offered more colors.
