Louis GarneauEquipe Motion Bib Short

In motion.

Constructed from a mix of Power+ Lycra, Pro+ Lycra, and Power Mesh, the Louis Garneau Equipe Motion Bib Shorts boast a moisture-wicking, compressive fit that keeps you cool and dry, and according to Garneau, increases blood circulation to the leg muscles. In theory, this means your muscles will be happier and less tired on those long endurance rides compared to shorts that don't have the Power fabric mix.

In addition to happier muscles, these bib shorts are also designed to increase rider comfort and reduce irritation from chafing and pressure points. Featuring strategically placed panels, seamless inner legs, and flatlock seam construction, these bib shorts flex to move with each rider's shape and pedal stroke to nearly eliminate irritation from abrasion and friction. Garneau adds in its Motion Airgel chamois with a mix of perforated gel inserts and multi-thickness, perforated high-density foam to get rid of moisture and provide a comfy, pinch-free ride.

To cap it all off, the Louis Garneau Equipe Motion Bib Shorts are finished with Garneau's Powerband leg cuffs to keep everything firmly in place, while a back pocket allows for easy and secure stashing of cash, phones, or race radios.

Fit a little tight on the legs

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've worn Medium LG bib shorts before, and they fit well, but these are a little tighter (or my butt is a little fatter and new shorts don't stretch as easily) than my existing shorts. I sent them back for a pair of Large Carbon Lazer bib shorts that are great, they would have fit well enough though (they are compression material).
