Product Description

Anatomic comfort is nothing new to Louis Garneau. Why is this important' Well, more support translates to less muscle movement from road vibration, and thus, less muscle fatigue. This means that you'll experience more muscle support in comparison to heavy polyester blends. This material features a knit that has a high percentage of Lycra fibers in its composition. This finish permits the sun's heat to be reflected away from the shorts instead of absorbing it like most fabrics. Starting with the shorts portion of the Course Race, Garneau used its Lazer Rev fabric for the construction. So, you'll notice that the inner leg features a s. So, you might be asking where aerodynamics come into the fold' Well, this a two part story, with Chapter One being the materials, and Chapter Two involving the construction. So, you can ride on the rivet during summer races without running the risk of overheating. So, when it came time to design a the Course Race Women's Shorts, Garneau decided to poke the boundaries of possibility. So, the fabric's shape, fit, and compressive qualities don't run the risk of degradation. Not only does this minimize the possibility of abrasion, but it also creates a smooth, laminar air flow over the legs. Moving along these lines, Garneau designed the Course Race shorts with a minimal number of seams. Instead of simply making a comfortable pair of shorts, Garneau instead opted to incorporate high levels of aerodynamic and breathable properties that are typically sacrificed in the pursuit of comfort. Even better, Lazer Rev has been designed to retain its shape after expanding for body conformity. And to keep the heat at bay, Garneau also treated the shorts with its Coldblack finish. After all, it's been at the forefront of cycling design for nearly 30 years. Additionally, even though the Course Race isn't a designated compression piece, you can still expect a slight improvement to blood flow, correlating directly to a reduction of lactic acid buildup. . .
