CB Carbon 2 Short

Louis Garneau's line of cycling shorts runs the gamut from "performance" to "workhorse," but if we were to ignore the industry-wide trend of over-specialization, we'd chose the CB Carbon 2 Shorts as the ideal solution for every cycling problem. Charity ride? Check. Interval training? Check. Crit-ready racing shorts without the restriction of bibs? Well, you get the idea. Whatever your cycling ambitions — or lack thereof — the CB Carbon 2 Shorts are ready.

The CB Carbon shorts are, unsurprisingly, made from CB Carbon+ fabric. It maintains a confident fit with gentle compression and a comfortable temperature with sun-reflecting Coldblack treatment. The legs terminate in LG's leg bands of LG's Endurexx material, which also shows up in the side panels. Like CB Carbon+, Endurexx is also gently compressive, so it maintains leg coverage and limits fatigue without cutting into your legs like the usual elastic insert.

In addition to supporting the muscles of your engine, the shorts' 11 ergonomic panels also provide a stable platform for LG's 4 Motion chamois. The 4 Motion insert combines a four-way stretch with frontal vents, bacteriostatic properties, and smoothly transitioning thicknesses of perforated foam padding relieved with a central channel.

CB Carbon 2 shorts Uncomfortable

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 11"

These shorts have minimal padding, and what is there pinches the sensitive parts. I have tried several different LG shorts, none are comfortable. The Fitsensor 2 short was perfect, and for some reason was discontinued. Nothing, even the VERY expensive LG shorts comes close. Don't waste your money.

Awesome warm weather shorts!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
-5' 10"

The breathability of these shorts is amazing. Will definitely be my go-to shorts for the hot months. Typical great Garneau quality. I did not find them very short in-length, as others mentioned; by my measurement; only 1/8-to 1/4 inch shorter than my others. They did not ride up either. Perhaps a smidge smaller than my other size L Garneau bottoms, but I'm glad that I did not size up. The drawstring is a non-issue. I'm taking off one star, however, for price. They should be $125-$130 max, not $160.
