Description

Comfort counts

Whether you're interested in maximizing your hydro or aerodynamics, or simply want to keep a consistent tan line, the Louis Garneau Pro 8 Men's Shorts are for you. With an eight-inch inseam, the Pro 8 cuts through wind and water. And with the top-tier fabrics used in construction, you can rest easy knowing that comfort won't be an issue during your triathlon.

To perform in and out of the water, Louis Garneau made its Pro 8 Shorts from a blend of materials, with each fabric playing a vital role in the tri-characteristics of the shorts. Starting with the primary material, a jack-of-all-trades called Delfino, it features a dimpled mesh structure that efficiently breathes, wicks, and vents during your run or ride. And whether you're in the water or out of it, the fabric has incredible hydro and aerodynamic properties. Delfino also has slight compressive qualities for muscle support, and it's resistant to chlorine for training in the pool. However, in the tri-arena, the largest benefit to this material is its resistance to water absorption. This means that you'll be drier, faster than the competition when it's time to jump in the saddle.

To guarantee a full-range of movement, Garneau used the Carbon-X Mesh fabric on the rear of the thighs. This material is extremely malleable and promotes a better blood flow while supporting your muscles. In fact, Garneau claims that its compressive properties promote a 10 to 20% increase in resistance to fatigue. The Carbon construction also possess immense anti-static properties that prevent the body's absorption of random static energy or air-born pollutants. For the most important cycling piece of the Pro Shorts, the chamois, Garneau used the Tri Air chamois. This chamois is incredibly lightweight and quick-drying -- an essential feature after the swim. It makes use of a thin, four-way stretch design that allows comfort and support in the saddle, but prevents discomfort on the swim or run. The Tri Air has also been given an anti-bacterial treatment, so it won't get funky during training.

The Pro Shorts use a six-panel construction that makes movement effortless. Lycra Powerbands hold the legs in place, and the waist is secured with an elastic band and drawstring. Along the line of comfort, flatlock seams have been used throughout the shorts to minimize abrasion. For motivation, or race-radio storage, Garneau has included a multimedia pocket and one back pocket. For night training, the shorts also has reflective logos on the back and bottom.

The Louis Garneau Pro 8 Shorts are available in the colors Black/white, Black/ginger/white, and Black/royal/white. They're also being offered in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.
