The Corsa Bib Shorts are the creme de la creme of bib shorts from Garneau. And even though they don’t cost as much as many of our other pro-level bibs, we believe these bib shorts to be competitive with almost any pair of bibs we sell, they’re that good.
At the heart of the Corsa Bibs is Louis Garneau’s 4 Motion chamois. Its woven polyester construction offers a high degree of stretch -- in four directions as they note -- which ultimately helps the pad mold to your contours and move with you, increasing your comfort. Mesh vents and channel vents help to move moisture away from your body to keep your skin dry and chafe-free. Multi-thickness, high density foam places more padding where you need it most and reduces it in the areas where it isn’t as necessary. All this work makes the chamois fit naturally, as if it's not even there. However, the comfort level after a few hours in the saddle tells you otherwise.
The Corsa Bib Shorts offer the greatest degree of compression of all of Louis Garneau’s shorts. Lycra Power is used in many locations through the eight-panel design. Panels made from Speedtech improve wicking due to the lightweight weave and yet offer incredible sun protection, with an SPF of 50. Carbon-X Mesh and Lazer Rev aid in compression and fabric resilience to make the bibs provide excellent compression and a long life; truly, these bibs are so light in feel that the support they offer is surprising.
The bibs feature a rear pocket for riders who wish to ride with anMP3 player so you don’t have to devote a jersey pocket to your electronics. Rather than gripper elastic at the leg cuffs, the shorts are finished with compression bands that give them a longish 11.25" inseam. All seams are flatlocked to give the inside of the shorts the smoothest possible feel against the skin.
The Louis Garneau Corsa Bib Shorts are available in Black, Black/Blue, and White/red and come in five sizes from Small through XX-Large.
8-Panel ergonomic fit for exceptional comfort and elimination of bunching

Tired of my bottom end bibs that couldn't seem to stay together for a season I needed an upgrade. took a chance on 2 pairs of these early in the season and I'm glad I did. ditched my team kit bibs for these all season. Great bib's, love the chamois, fit is perfect and the leg grippers, no silicon so no chafing on my thighs.
I returned this product before using it
I love LG cycling clothing, and XL has always fit me well, but these were too tight, both in the legs and the bib length over the torso. I'm 5'11 and 180, thicker than most cyclists, but for anyone over 5'9 these are going to be tight in the shoulders, and don'tbother if you have big thighs.
Not at all. Have these myself. But the red part however, gets lighter when you put it on and the material stretches. So the vivid red becomes somewhat pale-ish. Also for what it may be worth, these run true to size but some who don't know what they're buying might say they run small. They are "compression fit" first of all and these are meant to fit like a second skin to be as aerodynamic as possible. You will feel like a pro wearing these with their matching jersey.
This is one kick ass bib short! The chamois is definitely the best I've ever sat on to date. At first I was skeptical about spending so much on a bib short, when normally $175 would be my limit. But I said the hell with it and went for it. And I'm glad I did. They are on the snug side but that's how they are supposed to be. They are compressive fitting. The shoulder straps are very well fitting, so there's no more getting annoyed at loose shoulders straps here. And if you do get this bib you have to get the matching jersey. Sure it's an investment but you've never felt like such a champ rocking this kit. It's also the fastest drying kit I've ever owned. And I mean sweat here, not water!
Basically, if you find a pair of knicks and they are made by Louis Garneau, they are awesome. I can't really add anything else. These are a great pair of knicks for training, and the bibs feel great around your shoulders too. Very nice chamois.
