Don't sacrifice.

You shouldn't have to bare all in order to stave off the heat. Nor should you have to sacrifice race-worthy designs for an anatomic, women's-specific fit. And while there are droves of those able to satisfy one of these needs, only Louis Garneau does it all in one jersey with its Course Superleggera Women's Jersey.

Louis Garneau created the Course Superleggera to be the amalgamation of ultra-lightweight and highly breathable designs. However, to achieve this lofty ambition, Garneau was forced to create a complex design that remains simple on the eyes. Easier said than done. So, three fabrics were used in its construction, along with a sophisticated material treatment. Starting at the body of the jersey, Garneau knew that the bulk of construction had to be lightweight, malleable, and breathable. This means that Mondo was the obvious choice for its composition. Made from a featherweight, multi-filament polyester, Mondo's knit is porous for breathability and for a high level of stretch that aids in both comfort and aerodynamics.

At the chest and side panels Garneau went to great lengths to account for the most cumbersome variable of comfort -- heat control. Sure, the aforementioned fabric is breathable, but Garneau still added its ultra-soft, MicroSens Mesh material for a multitude of reasons. First, it enhances the jersey's next-to-skin fit and comfort with its stretchable, microfiber composition. Second, it's been treated in order to wick moisture away rapidly. And lastly, its open mesh design keeps you dry while thoroughly ventilating your core. Going a step beyond, Garneau also treated the body of the jersey with its Coldblack finish. This finish permits the sun's heat to be reflected away from the jersey instead of absorbing it like most fabrics. So, you can ride on the rivet during summer races without running the risk of overheating.

To secure the fit of the Course Superleggera jersey, Garneau has taken a multi-step approach. The shoulders have been pre-shaped for added in comfort within the cycling position. At the rear hem, Garneau placed a wide signature silicone gripper that prevents shift without adding any compression. For the arms, Garneau laser-finished the hems, not only for comfort, but for enhanced aerodynamics as well. This has been further enhanced through the cuffs' Lazer Rev fabric. With a 22% spandex composition, this material provides a certified compression level support that aids in the reduction of lactic acid buildup, and the reduction of muscle fatigue.

Garneau has also included three rear angled pockets for easy-access storage, a secured multimedia pocket with internal cable routing channels, and reflective accents to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

The Louis Garneau Course Superleggera Women's Jersey is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/white/red and White/red.

Too small to be comfortable

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

This is a pro cut jersey that runs at least 1, possibly 2, sizes smaller than sizing chart would indicate. By "pro cut", I mean not just that it's basically a skin suit (it is), but also that this is one of those jerseys meant to comfortable in (and maybe only in) your tuck position on the bike--very tight across the chest and presumably roomier across the back and shoulders. On the upside, the material seemed nice.

Runs small, but great for hot days

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I read what others said about this jersey and found it to be true that it runs small, but keep in mind that the cut is "race" cut. It's definitely a unique jersey in terms of the sheer paneling on the side, and the white is very transparent. However, it's a great lightweight jersey for hot days out on the road, and definitely not common. I liked it so much I bought a secone one in black.

Love the jersey but I can't recommend it

I love this jersey. Fit, feel etc. I love LG products and will continue to buy them BUT I can't recommend this particular jersey based on my experience. Especially not with a $100 price tag. If I felt I were to blame for the tear that would be one thing but I wore the jersey once and noticed the tear the second time I was wearing it. I don't remember doing anything that tore the jersey and I believe I would have noticed. I did wash it once and if this happened during one wash that is not acceptable either. I'm hoping this is just one defective product because overall I have been very happy with LG.

Love the jersey but I can't recommend it

Cool kid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this jersey for my first century ride, the Hotter than Hell 100, on 8/29/15 in Wichita Falls, TX. Couldn't have been a better performing jersey... the white, reflective material on the miles of blacktop, was the envy of most other cyclists on the route. Didn't see another jersey like it on the road. Paired it with the Garneau sleeves and gray shorts and was complimented multiple times during the race and after. Not only was I stylish, the Hotter than Hell wasn't as hot with this fantastic jersey. Snug fit, transparent, but true to size.

favorite jersey!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is by far my favorite jersey! It has high quality, lightweight, breathable fabric- and the cut/seams are well placed. It may run a little small (I'm 5'3, 125 and bought a medium). I recently used it during my bike up mt haleakala in maui- and it still performed after a hard day of climbing, rain, heat, wind, etc..

Runs very small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This jersey is really nice and very lightweight, but runs VERY small. I ordered two size Small Castelli jerseys as well as this one. They both fit fine, but this one was tiny. I went to a retail store to try on another LG jersey for fit. I will have to exchange for a size Large. I'm 5'6", 125 lb, B-cup bra. So...I'm a small person. :) But this jersey is way smaller than me.

Very transparent

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

This looks like a beautiful cycling jersey...but when I received it I noticed that the "sans mesh" actually refers to a fabric that you can see straight through (white fabric) not appropriate for me. Otherwise the fit was good, fabric felt nice and pretty design. Just don't like see through jerseys

Mesh Shoulders - Really!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I live in Hawaii and was looking for a high end, cool, race fit jersey and bought the white one. I was concerned about the mesh on the shoulder blades, which isn't mentioned in the description, and wrongly assumed it was made of some special sun block material (after all this is the most exposed part of the body when riding a bike). I returned home after a 6 hour ride with very bad sun burn. I have solved this issue by smearing sunblock under my jersey - a bit weird but it works.

If the above design flaw could be eliminated this would be my favorite and most comfortable jersey. A few more colors beside black would also be nice - I'm still not convinced that black can be cool in Hawaii's heat.

Too see-through

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

It says you shouldn't have to bare all, but you do bare quite a bit with this very stylish jersey. The material feels nice, and it has a nice fit if you like a tight fit, but because the white areas on this shirt are basically transparent, bra straps and a large area of your sides are highly visible, I have to give it a low rating.

I didn't try it out, but imagine the ventilation would be pretty nice if you weren't squeamish about showing off too much skin.

Great look and feel

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have to confess that I never have worn this. I bought it, and then put on a couple of pounds (working on getting them off!), and don't want the race fit right now. However, the material and construction seem to be of high quality with a good feel. It seems especially beneficial for hot and humid weather conditions. I agree that more colors would be a plus.

Favorite Summer JerseyGreat Jersey

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have both the black and the white Course jerseys. They are my favorite summer weight jerseys. I live in Hawaii and heat is a huge factor for me. These jerseys are incredibly stylish, fit like a dream, wick well and keep me cooler than any other jersey I own.

Make more colors!!!
