You can't beat carbon.
Not many things can cause your performance to crater quite like overheating, but the Louis Garneau Carbon Mesh Women's Jersey is specifically designed to keep you cool and comfortable, no matter how hot the conditions are. The back and sleeves are made from CB Carbon Ion fabric, which provides incredibly accelerated moisture transfer and evaporation in areas that are most exposed to sunlight. The underarm panels are composed of Highlander mesh, which increases breathability, while the Endurexx front panel and sleeve cuffs are stretchy, supportive, and soft.
As if that wasn't enough, Garneau also treated the CB Carbon Ion fabric with Coolblack, a reflective finish that keeps you cool, even if you're wearing dark colors. The Carbon Mesh's full-length front zip provides the possibility for even more ventilation, and the Aero Lazer laser-cut arm bands reduce wind resistant and prevent sleeves riding up. The aerodynamic properties of the fabric are further complemented by the slim hem gripper and sleek Racer Fit, while the Carbon's pre-shaped shoulders keep you comfortable and bunch free when you're over the bars. Garneau also made sure the Carbon has plenty of useful features like triple back pockets, an internal media pocket, and reflective details that will help you ride and get home safely.
- Q & A
I normally take a large-5'5" and 150 lbs. I ordered one size up as I normally don't like tight jerseys. It was way too small in the shoulders and slightly too small in the waist. Being that it is white it is somewhat see through also. I'm thinking of reordering if they have XXL.
Love this jersey
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I have a fair complexion and I have not had a sunburn while wearing this jersey. I do spray sun screen on before every ride and I am out past the two hour limit of it and still no burn. The front panel is solid but keeps you cool. It is sharp looking as well. Itis one of my favorites.
Too much mesh fabric on the back
The top of the back of the jersey is all mesh, there is no way that it's offering you any SPF. I'd have to wear and reapply sunblock to not get burned. Too bad, I have an older LG Carbon jersey in black and it's my favorite, this one is going back.
