Description

For support, mile after punishing mile.

Louis Garneau's Women's Equipe Shorts are designed to ride mile after mile in comfort. A women's-specific design sewn from the highest grade of compressive Lycra available, they provide support no matter how rough the roads or trails.

The Equipe shorts were sewn with Lycra Power fabric at the hamstrings, quads, inner thighs, and seat panel. This material has a controlled stretch and compressive qualities that support the muscle groups from the fatigue-inducing effects of road vibration, instead of simply concentrating on bloodflow. Lycra Power is open and breathable, meaning that you'll remain cooler during and after hard aerobic exertions, as moisture is transported away from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the shorts. Additionally, the interior is soft on the skin, nearly eliminating the ailment of abrasion.

Garneau cut the Equipe on an anatomic contour specific to women. They feature an 11-panel design, ensuring that every muscle in the upper legs is supported. A lighter weight Lycra Pro material was used at points of the leg that require more flexibility, like the outer thigh and above the knee. And securing this fit are Garneau's compressive Powerband leg grippers and yoga-pants-like HuggFit waist. Going even further, the shorts also feature a seamless inner leg and flatlock seams.

For the chamois, Garneau included its venerable AirGel insert. This chamois uses a pre-shaped wing design that moves in unison with your body. After all, a non-conforming insert is a leading cause of abrasion. The AirGel chamois uses a variable-density, perforated gel that's been shaped to address every direction of movement and pressure. This means that pinching and chafing are nearly eliminated. Garneau also included a center channel, much like your favorite saddle, that relieves pressure, and the outer fabric layer uses the antibacterial Crabyon fabric.

The Louis Garneau Equipe Women's Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Drizzle/atomic blue/white and Black/purple/white.

Very nice, comfortable cycling shorts

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

Quality is very good, and the chamois is comfortable. That's what my wife says, anyway. The dark fabric is not sheer (no lululemon see-through yoga pants issue here).
