Description

Equipped to Race.

Due to advancements in compressive fabric technologies, many of today's cycling shorts are constructed using panels made from muscle-supporting materials. And while we know that traditional Lycra is light and relatively aerodynamic, it often lacks the body-holding and fatigue-resistant properties found in modern compressive fabrics. With this in mind, Louis Garneau designed its Equipe Shorts using a compressive panel construction in order to achieve both support and day-long riding comfort.

The Equipe Shorts reach a high compressive level using the Power Lycra certified, Lycra Power fabric in their 11-panel design. This lightweight, highly breathable fabric contains more Lycra than basic knits, providing a better hold and moisture transfer. By strategically wrapping compressive panels around your legs, the shorts support your muscle groups and keep the harsh effects of road vibration at bay. This translates to you riding longer, stronger, and with less fatigue.

Garneau achieves its aerodynamic fit in the Equipe Shorts by using pre-shaped panels and flatlock seams. The Huggfit system distributes pressure evenly around your waist. So, there's no binding, and the elastic drawstring gives you a secure, nearly-custom fit. Another small, but often overlooked, design characteristic that Garneau incorporates into the shorts is the seamless inner legs. This feature reduces saddle bunching, and the chafing caused by excess material, by eliminating seams at your inner thighs. Adding to this, compressive Powerband cuffs keep the leg panels firmly in place without restricting circulation. Additionally, Garneau logos wrap the cuffs with back and bottom reflective accents in order to help increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

For additional support, Garneau incorporated its acclaimed Airgel chamois. This insert was constructed with perforated gel inserts and the antibacterial Crabyon fabric. Essentially, this material is used in medicine for its ability to help tissue regeneration and accelerate wound healing. It also wicks moisture and breathes well, providing you with friction-free comfort throughout your longest rides.

The Louis Garneau Equipe Shorts are available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Ginger, and Royal.

Excellent Fit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my 2nd short with LG excellent fit, and the padding is amazing. I have just ordered my 3rd short.

Good fit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second set of shorts from LG and the fit is great but on longer rides they aren't as comfortable as my other LG shorts with the red padding.

used twice

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

these are great shorts...fit snug xl 38" waist...smaller chamois than some of the shorts I've worn over the past 20 years, but no chafing whatsoever (35 miles usual route), I love the fit and finish of these quality shorts and really like doing business with competitive cyclist. 9th pair of shorts/bibs purchased from them, 1st louie garneau

Ok

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They are not bad but when I'm going on really long rides, I wear my Pearl Izumi Pro shorts. They just aren't as comfortable and the padding isn't as good. The draw string slips back through the hole and is a total pain so I end up not even using it.
