LOUIS GARNEAU WOMEN'S SHORTS/BIBS - ROAD
On paper, a triathlon sounds arduous and painful -- swimming, cycling, and running. However, what lies beyond the advertised turmoil, are the real-world struggles that the discipline plays host to. With an array of variable difficulties, the most notable, yet understated, is the discomfort induced by shoddy clothing construction. However, Louis Garneau changes this with its Comp Women's Shorts. Now, with the Comp Shorts, your pain is only derivative of your training, not your choice in clothing.
To deliver the ultimate in anatomic fit, the Comp Shorts use a 12-panel design, constructed of Garneau's Endurexx fabric. This material shapes to the female body's contours to deliver to stellar support with a slight compressive factor. Ultimately, the support minimizes the muscles' reaction to vibration, which drastically reduces fatigue and increases resistance. The stability, matched with the compression, increases blood flow, and accordingly, regulates the production and release of muscle-cramping, lactic acids. Further along these lines, Garneau included its Powerband compressive leg cuffs. Like Endurexx, Powerbands are soft-to-the-touch, non-restrictive, and promote circulation throughout the legs.
For even further comfort, the Comp Shorts use flatlock seams, and feature Garneau's Mini Dryfleece Light chamois. This chamois is designed to be quick-drying, so you can trust that your transitions won't feel awkward or obtrusive. The shape of the chamois is thin and conforming, and touts a barely-there design that accommodates to swimming and running, as well. For training purposes, the shorts are impervious to chlorine (up to 15 times the prescribed swimming level) and have been given reflective accents for low-light conditions. Every pair of Comp Shorts are also UPF/SPF 50, and come equipped with a rear, mesh pocket to house your essentials.
The Louis Garneau Comp Women's Shorts are available in the colors Atomic Blue/black/bright yellow, Black/candy purple/white, and Black/white. They also come in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.
