Ride faster and cooler.

Let's face it, we ride and race in the age of aerodynamics. From wheels, to helmets, to frames, every aspect of drag is being minimized at a levels that would be considered exponential less than five years ago. However, as a maker of aero helmets, Louis Garneau asked itself why the benefits of drag reduction were concentrated at the external instead of being applied to apparel itself? Luckily, Garneau answered its own question, and the result is the Course Race Jersey.

Louis Garneau designed the Course Race jersey to be race piece, through and through. However, to achieve this lofty ambition, Garneau was forced to create a complex design that remains simple on the eyes. Easier said than done. So, three fabrics were used in its construction, along with a sophisticated material treatment. Starting at the body of the jersey, Garneau knew that the bulk of construction had to be lightweight, malleable, and breathable. This means that Mondo was the obvious choice for its composition. Made from a featherweight, multi-filament polyester, Mondo's knit is porous for breathability and for a high level of stretch that aids in both comfort and aerodynamics.

The jersey's aerodynamics have been further ensured by the shoulder and sleeve's Speedtech construction. As the name insinuates, this fabric is built for speed. It features a dimpled mesh design that's akin to the surfaces of aero helmets and golf balls. The reasoning behind this is simple -- between speeds of 15 and 45 mph, the dimples reduce drag at the forward most point of your body. Additionally, this aerodynamic trait has natural hydrophilic properties that assist in wicking away moisture. And even better, its 18% spandex content qualifies Speedtech as a certified compressive fabric. This means that your upper-body will be less susceptible to the volatile effects of road vibration and general fatigue.

And while the Course Race jersey has you covered for aerodynamics and material comfort, Garneau went to even greater lengths to fulfill the most cumbersome variable of comfort -- heat control. Sure, the aforementioned fabrics are breathable, but Garneau still added ventilation points on the side panels and under the arms. This area of the jersey has been made from the Mesh 1001 material for many reasons. First, it enhances the jersey's next-to-skin fit and comfort with its stretchable, microfiber composition. Second, it's been treated in order to wick moisture away rapidly. And lastly, it effectively regulates the internal temperature of the jersey at a natural core-ventilation point. Going a step beyond, Garneau also treated all of the jersey fabrics with its Coldblack finish. This finish permits the sun's heat to be reflected away from the jersey instead of absorbing it like most fabrics. So, you can ride on the rivet during summer races without running the risk of overheating.

To secure the fit of the Course Race jersey, Garneau has taken a multi-step approach. The shoulders have been pre-shaped for added in comfort within the cycling position. At the rear hem, Garneau placed a wide signature silicone gripper that prevents shift without adding any poignant compression. For the arms, Garneau lazer-finished the hems, not only for comfort, but for enhanced aerodynamics as well.

Garneau has also included three rear angled pockets for easy-access storage, and reflective accents to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

The Louis Garneau Course Race Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and White.

Good, but...

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

Great quality jersey, and feels like it will be fairly cool on a hot day. But many lower priced jerseys fit, feel, and cool just as well. I'm 5' 9" and 140 lbs. with a 41" chest. A medium fit second skin-snugly like it's supposed to. My only complaint, which is why I returned it, is the arms are way too long. Reached nearly to my lower arm. Doesn't look it from the picture. Not a problem, just not my preference.

Fits just like the superleggera

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

See my review for the superleggera. Even though I didn't end up keeping this jersey because the superleggera is better for hot weather, since they are both essentially the same jersey I am still giving this 5 stars.


I'm 5'10.5", 162#, 39.5" chest, 33" waist. I tried a M and a L and in the end went with the L. The Medium was a touch on the too tight side, whereas the L was still comfortable but still fit nicely i.e., not a club fit but still a race fit.


Buy up a size or two.

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

I'm 6-2 and weigh 185 and I've always been a size 42. So not wanting to buy something too big (though I should know better) I bought a size large. Fit me like the Pillsbury dough boy wearing Wiggins skin suit. So back it went for an XL. Still tight but had the fit I was after. The shirt is nicely made and all of my stuff fit in the pockets (they don't hold as much as other jerseys). Even with my pockets full the shirt didn't move and was more than cool enough. I'd consider another one and might try a XXL. It would be nice if CC gave the clothing they sell real world fit sizes and not what the manufacturers recommend.

Buy up a size or two.

Can you tell me how it fits? I'm 5' 9" at...

Can you tell me how it fits? I'm 5' 9" at 167lbs. Will a small or medium work best?

Best Answer

Kerry... it's all about chest size. If you have your chest measurement (or sport coat size) then just compare against the chart. The thicker folks among us will also consult the waist measurement!

Hey Kerry,

David is correct about getting your chest measurement so we can select the correct size. Keep in mind that this jersey is a race cut which means it is a really tight fit so if you are getting this for casual rides you might want to size up.


Outstanding Quality

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Very well made. Fits me perfectly. LG hit a home-run.


New favorite

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

Really impressed with this jersey. Fabrics feel soft, and the venting under the arms is effective. The black jersey is surprisingly cool under intense sun. Fit is spot on - the only jersey I own that is suitably snug all the way to the bottom hem.


Love this jersey

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

The fit on this jersey is Euro, so order up a size from normal North American sizing. I am 5'10" 150lbs and wear a small.

The fabrics feel super nice on your skin, and the jersey stays in place. No annoying baggy pockets or sagging jersey back. The silicone grippers on the back hem keep everything in place very well.

The sleeves are lazer cut and are one single piece from the neck to the hem. They are a bit longer than normal, coming down to the middle of my upper arm. The piece does not restrict motion at all and yet hugs your upper body. Feels like wearing nothing.
