Speed Bolero

We understand that during a triathlon, you're traveling light. That's why the Louis Garneau Speed Bolero is ideal for a race where the sun refuses to shine. The Speed Bolero protects the portions of your body that get drilled by wind in the TT position, and leaves the rest to providence. Lightweight and far from bulky, slip on the Bolero and reap the benefits of speed.

Louis Garneau made its Speed Bolero from the Aero Tech fabric—a derivative of the compressive Lycra Power. Designed to fit in a true-to-form Bolero style, the Speed Bolero keeps the arms and shoulders covered and protected from the detrimental effects of the sun. To achieve this, Louis Garneau has given the piece a UPF/SPF 50 protective treatment.

That's all great, but the question remains—why would you wear it? The answer is simple. The Speed Bolero has been tunnel-tested to enhance its aerodynamic properties. Additionally, it wicks sweat away from the skin for a dry riding experience, but most importantly, the Bolero has compressive qualities. This means that the snug-fit of the top assists proper blood flow, and thus reduces the buildup of lactic acids. Garneau even claims that athletes using Lycra Power designs encounter a 12% increase in power.

Louis Garneau Speed Bolero

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

love the ease of just putting on like a jacket. no issues with slipping sleeves and great sun protection around the high spots (arms and neck) its nice and ultra light very convenient and easy to store.

couldn't be happier

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

total flexibility to put on or take off under a short sleeve jersey. i wear it to keep my arms out of the sun on long rides and stay warm as the day cools.

Excellent product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Much handier than individual sleeves - will never slide down your arms. Extra sun protection across the shoulders is a BIG plus. Worst place for sun damage.
