Description

Team Europcar continues its assault on other teams throughout Europe this season, led by the highly unpredictable, punchy attacks of team leader Thomas Voeckler. Louis Garneau's Europcar Replica Bib Shorts bring the European team's colors to those of us who don't bolt out of pack in the Pyrenees with the same punch as Tommy V, but who still want to be supported and comfortable on our own riding quests.

Starting with the construction, Garneau crafted the Europcar Replica bib shorts from a blend of Perfo Light Power, Lycra Pro, and Power Mesh. For compressive muscle support, Perfo Light Power was placed at various points on the legs of the shorts. This fabric incorporates more Lycra fibers per ounce/square yard than typical Lycra compositions, providing a compressive hold on your muscle groups. This means that you stay supported and shielded from the bulk of oscillation and road vibration, resulting in both a decrease in overall muscle fatigue and, according to Garneau, a 10 to 20% improvement in blood circulation. Garneau paired the Perfo Light Power with the Lycra Pro material on the outer panels, which gives the shorts a high level of recovering stretch. This provides you with a maximum freedom of movement and ensures that fabric flexibility is maintained. Garneau also designed the shorts with a seamless inner-leg and a 10-panel construction, lending itself to increased flexibility and eliminating abrasion.

The secure fit of the Europcar Replica bib shorts was accomplished through the use of compressive fabric panels and Garneau's Powerband leg cuffs. These provide a strong, no-slip hold on the legs, but they also reduce pressure on the lower legs in order to maintain proper circulation. Garneau further achieved its body-holding characteristics by constructing the bib straps from Power Mesh, with an added stretch trim that ensures flexibility. These straps hold the position of the shorts, and also aid in pulling perspiration away from the back and torso with their moisture wicking composition.

Garneau included its AirZone insert into the Europcar Replica bib shorts. This chamois uses a 3D, pre-shaped wing design that moves in unison with your body. After all, a non-conforming insert is one of the leading causes of abrasion. So, to guarantee flexibility, the AirZone chamois uses a variable-density, perforated memory foam that's been shaped objectively towards every direction of movement and pressure. And unlike other forms of variable-density padding, the AirZone shape ensures that height transitions flow smoothly from region to region. This means that pinching and chafing are nearly eliminated. Garneau also included a center channel, much like your favorite saddles, that relieves pressure on the urethra and pudendal nerve.

The Louis Garneau EuropCar Replica Bib Shorts are available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the Europcar colorway.
