Wearing an exclusive Competitive Cyclist design, the Pilot LE Jersey from Louis Garneau draws 30 years' worth of apparel know-how into its technically advanced design. The jersey was constructed with materials and paneling that have been tested in real-world race conditions by Garneau-sponsored pro teams, meaning that the jersey had to earn its place in Garneu's line before making its way to us. The new Pilot LE beautifully showcases Garneau's attention to detail, as this jersey was built to the highest of standards, and it was done so exclusively for Competitive Cyclist.

The Pilot LE was designed for warm-weather riding conditions, where enhanced moisture production becomes inevitable. Garneau's latest fabric technologies were developed to mitigate this resulting effect of physical exertion, allowing you to stay dry and comfortable, regardless of how much the temperature rises. The Pilot LE jersey received Louis Garneau's Diamond Fabric for its paneling. This material's extremely light knit composition provides excellent airflow and moisture management. The crosswise, diamond-shaped construction works by pulling moisture off of your skin and moving it to the surface of the fabric. And because the diamond pattering is textured, more surface area 'floats' above your skin. Essentially, this allows air to freely move through the material and to evaporate deposited moisture at a fast rate. The result is a jersey that stays dry regardless of the amount of moisture that your body produces.

For the fit of the jersey, Garneua built the Pilot LE around what its designers refer to as a 'pro fit.' This is slightly more generous than its next-to-skin race cut, but it still conforms to the contours of your body for a streamlined, race-inspired feel in the saddle. While many jerseys blend multiple fabrics of differing weights and composition, the Pilot LE's single Diamond material means fewer seams for smoother transition from one panel to next. Furthering the fit characteristics of these uninterrupted panels of fabric, Garneau built the jersey with a curved design. Each panel was cut to form to the cyclist's body while in motion, meaning that the jersey as a whole stays firmly in place when in the riding position. This cut also provides you with a completely unrestricted range of motion, eliminating fabric bunching and skin irritation.

Garneau built the Pilot LE with a full-length zipper for maximum ventilation. Finishing touches include three angled pockets along the lower back panel, reflective accents that increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, and elastic at the hem in order to keep everything securely in place.

The Louis Garneau Competitive Cyclist Pilot LE Jersey is available in seven sizes from X-Small to XXX-Large and in the White Competitive Cyclist colorway.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This kit is great for all the reasons listed in the other reviews. I wore mine out, literally. Sunscreen, rain, road grit, mud, blood, sweat... literally all of it. Issue in multiple colors for staining longevity. White? Road grime? Trail mud?


Sleeves are nice and loooooong....

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Great summer jersey - I like that the sleeves do not go up past my huge bicep's :) Actually, my long arms coming in >6'8" - this jersey still fits well. Additionally, the rear cut is a tad bit higher than most (like that) so when you squirrel away all those delicious treats, it doesnt hang down to your a.......s..s ;) Fit and finish are great! Will get another if they go on sale ;)



  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

5'11" 190 lbs 43"chest 33 waist. What size should I get? I have another LG jersey in XL and the fits ok but I think it's a club type cut.


Initial reviews, try on only.

  • Fit:Runs small

I ordered this jersey after ordering the bibs. For reference (which I feel is definitely needed for LG sizing) I am 6ft, 168lb, somewhere between a 30 and 32 waist.

The bibs are superb. I love them. Honestly my favorite set of bibs by far. Sizing chart is off so order your normal size, for me that's a medium. Based on waist, they told me to order a Small. Nope.

Jersey seems to be of excellent quality as well. I ordered a medium. Upon initial fitting, the arms are long and tight, exactly how i like them. The chest and stomach however, a bit of extra fabric. Not my favorite and a bit long for my taste. I like a tighter race cut jersey. Again, this is my preference speaking.

I'm ordering a small to see what happens. To reiterate, I ordered a large bib and am ordering a small jersey. Just keep that in my if you have my same preferences as the medium jersey is just a bit big around the stomach. I'm not a twig, but i'm not carrying extra beer gut either.

Hope this helps.


Nice jersey, but not for summer riding.

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Definitely a high quality jersey. However, I bought it for the summer months (TN-hot/humid). On two rides in the high 70's -low 80's, I have found it very uncomfortable it terms of body temperature regulation. In fact, the jersey was drenched after each ride. So there is no way I would wear it on a 90+ degree day. It doesn't seem to wick moisture very well ("as advertised"), which is problematic in high humidity. I would only recommend this jersey for early Spring or late Fall. In hindsight, I should have gone with an Equipe.


Great piece for the price

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have just received my LG - Competitive Cycling jersey and made my first ride with it. First impressions: awesome fit, very confortable and good looking jersey. Considering the price, this is a valuable piece that do the job nicely. I live in a warm city and ordered this jersey thinking of something light and well ventilated. Well, this jersey met all my expectations! Not as light as my Pearl Izumi Elite (Love this one) but definetely worth a try. Ziper works perfectly. Sizing is pretty reliable to the chart. I�m 5'7'' and 65kg: medium fits great. Maybe a little bit long, but chest and arms are great. Strongly Recommend.
