LOUIS GARNEAU MEN'S SHORTS/BIBS - ROAD
Not every day can be 70 degrees and sunny. Louis Garneau designed the Fit Sensor 2 Shorts to help your body regulate its temperature in chillier weather conditions. You get all the fundamentals here, such as 10 panel ergonomic construction, seamless inner thighs, back and bottom reflective logos, and flatlock seams. But the real story is in the fabric selection.
Fit Sensor fabric is the key to Garneau's cold weather strategy. The nylon outer layer isn't just abrasion-resistant, but keeps out skin-chilling wind. The inner layer of brushed polyester is soft to the touch and wicks moisture away from your skin. The high Lycra content (16%) ensures a comfortable fit and provides muscle support. It also reduces the fatiguing effects of road vibration. Fit Sensor boasts an SPF rating of 50, which is key on long rides where waterproof sunscreen doesn't stand a chance against perspiration. Garneau also incorporated Powerbands at the cuffs to keep the shorts in place.
The Airzone chamois features Beveled Molding Edges that provide a smooth transition from pad to fabric to eliminate pinching and chafing. Garneau also reduced the size of the vents in the chamois, but doubled their numbers. This increases comfort and durability. The seamless, four-way stretch Airzone chamois receives an anti-bacterial treatment to control odor, and pre-molded wings to add comfort while protecting against inner-thigh chafing.
Louis Garneau's Fit Sensor 2 Shorts are available in Black. They come in sizes XS to XXL.
