Description

Quality without the hefty price tag.

There's something to be said about a perfectly matching kit. However, we acknowledge the difficulty that lies in tracking down a kit's pieces in the right sizes and colors. That's why we took the guesswork out of the process by combining the bib shorts and jersey from one of our favorite parts of the Louis Garneau line. As a result, the Pilot LE Kit was born.

The Pilot LE jersey received Louis Garneau's Diamond Fabric for its main body. This material's extremely light knit composition provides excellent airflow and moisture management. The crosswise, diamond-shaped construction works by pulling moisture off of your skin and moving it to the surface of the fabric. And because the diamond pattering is textured, more surface area 'floats' above your skin. This allows air to freely move through the material and to evaporate deposited moisture more quickly. The result is a jersey that stays dry regardless of the amount of moisture that your body produces.

And while the Pilot LE jersey has you covered for moisture management 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. These areas of the jersey has been made from the Mesh 1001 material for a few 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. So, you can ride on the rivet during summer races without running the risk of overheating.

For fit, you'll find that the Pilot LE jersey is perfectly adaptable to the position and movements of cycling. In fact, Garneau cut the jersey on an anatomic contour in order to ensure this. And securing the fit are Garneau's Lazer Rev arm cuffs and a noninvasive silicone waist gripper. You'll also find that Garneau has taken your ability to store ride essentials into consideration. Along these lines, the jersey has three ample rear pockets, and to entirely house a race radio or media device, there's also a zippered media pocket with internal line routing.

As for the bib shorts, Garneau made the Pilot LE from a well-positioned blend of Lycra Power, Lycra Pro, and Power Mesh. For compressive support, Lycra Power has been placed at various points on the legs of the shorts. Basically, this fabric features more Lycra fibers per ounce/square yard than typical Lycra compositions. So, the material provides an elastic hold on your muscle groups, supporting and shielding them from oscillation and road vibration. This results in a decrease in overall muscle fatigue, while also, according Garneau, a 10 to 20% improvement in blood circulation.

And when the aforementioned is paired with the Lycra Pro material, the shorts give a heightened level of recovering stretch to ensure your freedom of movement. Further ensuring this characteristic, Garneau designed the shorts with a seamless inner-leg and a ten-panel construction. This not only leads to an increase in flexibility, but, more obviously, it lends itself to eliminating abrasion. Garneau even took this concept a step further by only using flatlock stitching throughout the shorts and uppers. However, all the while, both fabrics possess an extraordinary ability to manage moisture. This means that riding with damp legs after 40k is now a thing of the past.

Securing the Pilot LE's precise fit took a few steps. First, was the compressive fit. Secondly, Garneau included its Powerbands at the leg cuffs. These provide a strong, no-slip hold on the legs, but they also reduce pressure on the lower legs in order to avoid inhibiting a proper circulation. Next, Garneau constructed the bib straps from Power Mesh, while adding a stretch trim to ensure flexibility. These straps not only hold the position of the shorts, but with their moisture wicking composition, they also aid in pulling perspiration away from the back and torso.

Lastly, Garneau further ensured your comfort by incorporating its Airgel chamois. This insert places an emphasis on comforting support, breathability, and moisture management. To achieve this, the portions of support density are comprised of perforated gel inserts. This allows the chamois to adapt to pressure without sacrificing its supportive qualities. Additionally, the perforation increases the gel's breathability, preventing buildups of heat, and accordingly, eliminating hot spots.

The Pilot LE Kit is available in the color Black/sky blue and in seven sizes from X-Small to XXX-Large.

The best kit for the money.

  • Gender: Male

I'm a huge fan of the kit. Very light weight and cool. I use for road and dirt. The fabric is very lift and will snag ez, which is it's only negative.
