LOUIS GARNEAU MEN'S SHORTS/BIBS - ROAD
It's a simple fact we that can't help but reiterate time and time again: Your bib shorts are undoubtedly the most important part of your outfit. They're your connection to the bike, and the Louis Garneau Elite Lazer Bib Shorts facilitate a harmonious linkage between you and your ride with intelligent design, innovative fabrics, and a chamois that's second to none.
Garneau constructed the Elite Lazer bib shorts out of Lycra Pro fabric and used a seven-panel design for an anatomic fit. Lycra Pro includes 25% spandex to offer excellent muscle support and to ensure that the shorts keep their shape. It doesn't provide quite as much compression as the Lycra Power fabric used in Garneau's Course collection, but the fabric is also a bit lighter as a result. The black portions of the shorts use a Coldblack treatment that reflects heat, rather than absorbing and retaining it. And the Lazer Rev fabric provides silicone-free grip at the lower thighs in order to keep everything in place.
Garneau constructed the uppers of the Elite Lazer bib shorts out of Power Mesh and Carbon X-Mesh fabrics -- using Power Mesh for the lower and back portions, and Carbon X-Mesh for the shoulder straps themselves. And because it contains spandex, Power Mesh is both body-conforming and breathable, two factors that're essential to effective moisture management around the core area. The shoulder straps are made out of Carbon X-Mesh, which, in addition to ventilation, provides gentle grip and anti-static properties.
For further comfort, the bib shorts feature Louis Garneau's own, patent-pending 5 Motion chamois. This chamois, developed with Beveled Edge Molding, uses a 3D, pre-shaped wing design that moves in unison with your body in order to eliminate abrasion. It also features variable-density, a perforated memory foam that's been shaped objectively towards every direction of movement and pressure. And unlike other forms of variable-density padding, the 5 Motion shape ensures that height transitions flow smoothly from region to region for pinch- and chafe-free comfort. Garneau also included a center channel, much like your favorite saddles, that relieves pressure on the urethra and pudendal nerve. The insert also effectively evacuates any moisture -- another source of chafing and bacteria.
Garneau added reflective accents in front and back to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. Also, a back pocket allows you to stash essentials if it's sweltering out and the flailing, wide-open jersey look becomes a necessity.
The Louis Garneau Elite Lazer Bib Shorts are available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black and White.
