Keep your knobby knees warm.

No matter how tough they seem, even the pros know that cool wind will make the strongest of knees ache. So, when it's a breezy out, but not cold enough to wear full leg warmers or tights, the Louis Garneau SL3 Request Knickers are the perfect solution to keep your knees warm and your legs pumping hard.

The SL3 Request knickers are ideal for all types of riding in temperate weather. Garneau constructed the knickers with eight panels that support nearly every muscle in your legs. The matte, medium-weight, and breathable fabric allows moisture to move away from the skin to keep you cool and dry. This four-way stretch material has also been oriented with flatlock stitched seams in order to minimize chafing and to create a more body-conforming fit.

Meanwhile, the precise fit is secured via an elastic waistband with a drawstring, and Garneau's Powerband compressive cuffs. These keep the knickers in place without restricting circulation.

The SL3 Knicker features the Silvercool 3 chamois. This is a seamless chamois that's been constructed with a variable thickness throughout. So, you'll find high density foam for support and cushioning where its needed, not where it isn't. Additionally, the insert's two-way stretch contours to the body while you're riding, meaning that you'll experience less chafing and abrasion. And rounding out the design, Garneau employed the Coolmax fabric at the top layer in order to maintain an efficient level of moisture management.

The Louis Garneau SL3 Request Knickers feature a 21in inseam. They are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the color Black.

Here's what others have to say...



  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs large

i guess it all depends on what yu want out of a pair of knickers... Per the usual when it comes to LG, the waist runs a bit big. So make sure you order a size smaller than you would typically wear in your regular clothes (not based on other cycling brands). In regards to the knickers themselves, they are a bit thin. I have thicker shorts that do a better job keeping me warm. I bought these to wear when it's in the 40s (F) but they really don't do the trick. Disclaimer, i wear thicker pari of shorts when it is 50(f) and sunny. so to each his own, but not warm enough for "cool weather" riding


Great Product.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Love this product from Louis Garneau. Fits nicely and it's snug. The foam is comfortable as my bum didn't get sore after 2 hrs of riding in a not so comfortable saddle.

Great product. Great price from CC.
