Accelerate to new levels.
Back for another year, Louis Garnear Mondo Evo Bib Shorts are still standing their ground as one of the highest tech compressive bib shorts we carry. The 2017 model features all of the technology we've frown to love, with three high-tech fabrics that pull together for the greatest performance possible, and more special edition colors than before. We're still happy to be offered the exclusive rights to the Mondo Evo bib shorts, selling our own models designed with Louis Garneau for Competitive Cyclist and Backcountry.com for another year of high performance racing.
The Mondo Evo Limited Edition bib shorts incorporate advanced Cell-Ion fabric, as they did in pergious years, to provide form fittion compression. Cell-Ion contains Celliant, the ground-breaking technology that returns reflected energy to the body to trigger increased bloodflow and oxygen levels. As a result, you'll find superior performance, less fatigue, and greater overall comfort than other less compressive shorts. While many shorts offer UPF 30 for long rides, the Mondo Evo goes above to provide a hefty UPF 50, shielding your legs from harsh UV exposure on long summer rides where sunscreen doesn't hold up to sweat. Cell-Ion is made with 17% premium Invista Lycra, providing maximum stretch beyond the basic knit of most kits. This upgraded Lycra is the secret to the shorts' extreme range of motion, exceptional return, and compressive, supportive fit that holds your muscles in place to reduce fatigue.
Carbon X Mesh panels make up the bib and straps, to increase wicking and air movement where hindered airflow can be beyond damaging to your performance. The textured mesh won’t stick to your back, and creates a cooling zone between your skin and the fabric. Also featuring Resistex carbon fiber, this technical fabric is boosted with antistatic properties and enhanced controlled stretch and sun protection. The Mondo Evo Bib Shorts incorporate wide Aero Lazer bands at the thighs to hold the hems in place without grippers, straying away from the sticky silicone that most shorts require. The snug and compressive fit eliminates the need for grippers, and you'll find that the seams stay in place comfortably. A high spandex content in the fabric lends its self to 4 way stretch that happily returns into place without fatiguing for years of rigorous use.
Utilizing the 4Motion chamois, as on previous models, the bib short is supported by a chamois with 3D pre-shaped wings that have mesh vented split in the back to offer superior ventilation, and also allows the pad to move with you without causing uncomfortable bunching. These wings are seamless and sit along your thigh to prevent chafing and hot spots. Mesh lined perforations in the front of the chamois aid in increased air circulation, working to keep you cool and wick away moisture. The multi-density, perforated memory foam is ergonomically designed with a central channel that relieves pressure during long rides. The seamless, four-way stretch 4Motion chamois features a carbon top sheet to control odor and keep you feeling fresh from mile 1 to 100.
Rounding out the material construction, these shorts feature the bells and whistles you can expect from such a high level kit: ten-panel muscle hugging construction, seamless inner thighs, a back radio pocket, back and bottom reflective logos, and flatlock seams.
