Across the line with style to spair.
Swimming, cycling, running -- as every mile trudges by, you become more and more aware that you need any advantage that you can get. Don't fret, the Louis Garneau Tri Power Laser Shorts provide just that -- a leg up on the competition. With their lactic acid-fighting, compressive properties, and a design cut for the female figure, the Tri Power Laser Shorts reduce fatigue and provide the comfort needed to get first over the line.
Louis Garneau made its Tri Power Laser shorts from the all-powerful Lycra Power fabric. This material differs from typical Lycra with its complex knit structure. Its knit contains more Lycra per square inch, which provides more stretch and better muscle support. Basically, the more support given to the muscles, the less detriment that impact vibration poses to them. On top of this, the fabric offers compressive properties, meaning that proper blood flow is promoted throughout the legs. Garneau claims that the favorable circulation from the Tri Power Laser shorts increases resistance to fatigue by 10 to 20% over a long duration. The fabric also absorbs less water, and dries faster, than standard Lycra. This means that your transition from the water will be seamless and free from discomfort when you get into the saddle.
Aside from the shorts' soft-to-the-touch construction, Garneau also provided extra features to ensure comfort. The shorts use an eight-panel design with what Garneau calls its 'crotch flex panel.' The multiple panels add flexibility to the fabric, which in turn increases your range of motion within the shorts. For fit, the shorts have a comfortable, elastic waistband with an added drawstring. Garneau also included its Power Lazer bands at the thighs to secure the placement of the shorts, and to add to the compressive properties of Lycra Power. To eliminate abrasion and chafing, the shorts use flatlock seams throughout.
The Tri Power Laser shorts also include Louis Garneau's tri-specific, anatomic Tri Air chamois. This chamois differs from a standard road pad in its ability to conform to the body throughout a wide range of movements. So, it won't feel cumbersome when you're in the swimming or running portion of your race. And for when you're going from the water to the saddle, the material and padding is quick-drying and non-abrasive.

Itsy bitsy tri short
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
When these arrived I was sure I had ordered a junior size by mistake. They were so small looking that my wife almost didn't try them on. She did though, and they fit great.
