Description

Every year when hot summer days give way to brisk autumn mornings, we're presented with a choice: warmers or knickers. Warmers offer more flexibility but, when you're committed to riding in the chill, kit like Louis Garneau's Cycling Knickers for Women do away with the hassle of baby-sitting drooping knee warmers throughout your ride.

The Otpimum blends LG's Signature Mat and Quantum fabrics for a construction that targets stretch and comfort. The lack of a fleecy internal face means that these materials are ideal for temperatures ranging from the mid 50s to the mid 60s, though personal preference could push that range by a few degrees Fahrenheit in either direction.

The knicks are finished with a four-way-stretch, graduated chamois that provides support where it's desirable and relief where support would be a bad thing. The waist ensures that everything stays in place with the HugFit band construction. LG's typical Powerband surfaces at the hems to provide grip, and an internal waist pocket keeps your house key from mingling with spare arm warmers, wind vests, and knit gloves in your jersey pockets.

  • Non-thermal knickers for shoulder-season cycling
  • High-stretch material shields knees without bulky insulation
  • AirSport chamois provides support for casual and training rides
  • Gently compressive leg and waist bands maintain coverage
  • Finished with an internal waist pocket and reflective details

    These are my absolute favorite biking pants. I searched through tons of shorts/pants/capris to find what I was looking for. I purchased one pair of these 2 years ago and they're still my preferred pair, so I bought 2 more recently. I love that they protect your upper legs from the blazing hot sun while providing full ventilation for my body to breathe. I use these for road biking and mountain biking. They're perfect for either sport. I ride in Colorado so its a dry heat. I cannot stand bike shorts that are a thick material since it feels too constricting and hot. Positives: seat padding, the high rise in the back to cover my butt, overall fit, ventilation, built-in reflection, construction quality. Negatives: None! I highly recommend these!

    Thin material

    Returned because you can see through the pants. Otherwise, fit well.
