Power to the pedals.

Surely, you've heard that the best things in life are free. However, you've probably also heard that there's no such thing as a free lunch. This leaves us all at a median-zone quandary. So in terms of cycling, we like to say that the best things come at low prices. Not surprisingly, Louis Garneau's Perfo Light Power Bib Shorts doesn't dispute our assertion.

For the Perfo Light's construction, Garneau incorporated two different fabrics at two different sections. Starting at the shorts, we find the bread-and-butter Delfino material. This fabric features a dimpled mesh structure, which, at the interior, appears as an attempt at perforation that didn't quite make it through the material. Accordingly, these 'pockets' in the fabric act much as a honeycomb knit does, effectively pulling sweat away from the skin. Along these lines, Delfino tends to absorb less moisture than most Lycra blends, accelerating evaporation in order to leave you riding dry.

Additionally, Delfino is a tremendous muscle supporter. With a 195g/m2 fabric weight, and a calculated blend of Lycra and nylon, this materials essentially holds the muscle groups in place, protecting them from the fatigue-inducing effects of road vibration. Garneau has also taken the precautionary step of protecting the fabric itself. In fact, Garneau claims that Delfino maintains its properties and colors after being exposed to concentrations of chlorine 15 times that of pool water. So, durability is assured for both the muscles and the fabric.

In terms of fit, Garneau designed the shorts to be perfectly adaptable to the position and movements of cycling. In fact, Garneau cut the Perfo on an anatomic contour in order to ensure this. This works in coordination with the shorts' 11-panel design, ensuring that every body movement is predicted and supported. And securing this fit are Garneau's compressive Power Band leg grippers and highly breathable Power Mesh uppers.

For the chamois, Garneau included its venerable AirZone insert. This chamois, developed with Beveled Edge Molding, uses a 3D, pre-shaped wing design that moves in unison with your body. After all, a non-conforming insert is a leading cause of abrasion. So, to guarantee an obedient 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. However, Garneau didn't stop there. The insert also effectively evacuates any moisture -- another source of chafing and bacteria.

The Louis Garneau Perfo Light Power Bib Shorts area available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Black/white, Black/ginger/white, and Twilight Blue/white/black.

Awesome fit

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I am a road cyclist looking for a solid pair of bibs at a great price. These were it. The feel, and how they are a million times better than wearing shorts is amazing. I am a bigger guy and these fit great. If you are new to wearing bibs, make sure you get to a fitting prior to purchasing online. They can fit a little differently between companies. Fast shipping as well. Definitely purchasing from Competitive Cyclist again!
