Description

Technical.

Garneau analyzed every angle of bib short construction when designing its CB Carbon Lazer Bib Shorts, and the ambitious blend of fabrics it settled on includes everything from Lycra to carbon. Fabric alone certainly can't make a tough workout feel easy, but when the right materials are used and the cut is supportive, the kit you're wearing can make a difference. Constructing kit that works with you throughout a ride was a key focus with the CB Carbon Lazer, and it shows.

The short takes its name from the CB Carbon + Lazer main body fabric, a material composed of nylon, Lycra, and carbon fibers finished with a coldblack coating to help the fabric reflect, rather than absorb, UV rays. These materials feature heavily in the rest of the short's lightweight panels, with nylon adding durability and Lycra allowing the short to maintain its supportive, contoured shape as you stand up on a climb then shift into your drops to tuck into a descent. The fabric blends are stretchy and breathable, and each panel of the shorts is joined together with flatlock seaming that will move with you rather than create irritating chafing against your skin. Two types of lightweight, breathable mesh are used to construct the bib straps, which disappear underneath jerseys and stay in place as you move around without pinching or chafing.

Garneau lines the CB Carbon Lazer with its 4 Motion chamois, which features responsive foam arranged strategically to provide support where you need it without inhibiting your range of motion in the saddle. As the CB Carbon Lazer is at the high end of Garneau's bib short line, Garneau includes extra touches like a drop hem in back to make nature breaks on long rides more convenient, and sleek, laser-cut leg hems that lie flat and stay in place without the need for elastic or irritating grippers.

Comfortable bibs, breathable too

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I normally wear a Medium in bib shorts, but had to get a Large for these. Maybe they are more aligned with European sizing, I don't know, but they fit very well for me. The legs are a bit long, only about 2 inches from my knee to the bottom of the shorts, and I'm used to about 1 less inch of leg length, but the trend now is a longer inseam. Overall they are comfortable, though I have worn more comfortable shorts (which is all down to the chamois in this case). I would rate them as 8/10 for chamois comfort and I have 2 pair from another manufacturer that are a 10/10 for me. Most chamois I have are 8/10's. They are comfortable, but not like a brand new recliner after a 4 hour ride on a Sunday afternoon, if you know what I mean.
Overall, they are a good pair of shorts, and chamois comfort is 75% up to the individual. The materials are nice, though may be a little fragile around the inner thigh and front groin, but that is also what makes them breathable. the outer panels are a different material and are more durable.

p.s. I am 5'11", but I have slightly longer legs and shorter torso for my height. 6'0" if my torso was proportionately correct.

Riding my first century. I wear jeans in 40x32. what's a good size and type of bib short for me? I wear a size 50 R in a sports coat. What is a good size and type of jersey?

You would probably be an XXL, but I am in no way an expert. I think you will have to just start somewhere and try. You'll know if it's too tight when you try them on. Shorts should be tight but not so tight, these aren't olympic swimmer outfits here, you need to be able to move in every direction without fear of tearing them, and that goes for the jersey too, which can be slightly looser without issue. The shorts should be 'snug' and not move around against your skin when you're riding (seated and standing).

Great Bib

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

Very comfortable Bib. I am a larger rider and I find that the chamois has stood up to many hours in the saddle.

Impressive

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I worn many LG styles and most were compressive. This one is great because the material is very soft and a little less compressive except at the thigh where it's very supportive.

4Motion is by far my favorite LG pad. Straps are great.

A winner in my book!
