Ride in comfort.

It's always a fine time of year when the weather breaks for good and we can squirrel away all of the extra warmers, winter hats, and bulky gloves we counted on for insulation during the colder winter months and break out our kits for warmer rides. It's also a good time of year to take stock of your apparel and if you're in need of adding some new bibs to the collection, the Men's Equipe 1.6 Bib Shorts from Louis Garneau are worth a look and are perfect for the sunny weather days ahead bringing you long-mile comfort and supportive compression worthy of any riding adventure.

Louis Garneau achieves this blend of comfort and support with the use of its Pro and Power + Lycra material. The Pro + Lycra adds a touch of comfort with a forgiving stretchiness that belies its ability to recover its shape, allowing it to move with you instead of restricting you. Meanwhile, the Power + Lycra utilizes a mix of stretch and compression for supporting muscle groups leading to less fatigue and the ability to recover quicker.

Flatlock stitching is used throughout to avoid any uncomfortable irritation and the seamless inner leg construction reduces friction against the saddle. For the leg openings, Powerband compression cuffs hold the fabric in place and prevent migration without any excessive constriction. Chamois duties are handled by Garneau's Motion Airgel which uses a mix of perforated gel inserts and multi-thickness, perforated, high-density foam to wick moisture and provide cushioning against the saddle and road noise. Lastly, a small pocket on the back of the bibs is designed for a race radio but will securely stow any small items and it frees up jersey pocket room for extra snacks.
