    Feels too small

    After a few months of riding, think I should have ordered the X-large for my 36 waist cause the compression might be too tight.  The padding is exceptional for my beginner seat--feels like a gel pad.  The compression band on the legs is the best of the 3 brands of shorts I own.  The waist band could be wider since it usually rolls down and over after a ride.  Seems to wear well.  Will try a larger size.

    Feels true to size

    Great product if you're looking for a pair of shorts to train in, or just getting started in cycling. LG runs a little larger than other brands, so consult the sizing guide before purchasing.

Louis Garneau

Louis Garneau™, commonly known in the world of triathlons and cycling as LG, began when Garneau started manufacturing cycling clothing in his father's garage. Having participated in bike races worldwide for over 13 years, he knew he understood the specific needs of cyclists. Soon after, Garneau put together a team of people to create comfortable and competitively priced bicycle clothing and accessories. Whether you're looking for a cycling tank, sleeveless jersey or a triathlon transition bag, Louis Garneau is an excellent choice. The expertise and work that goes in to every detail of design guarantees you're getting high-quality product that will last race after race. LG tests their apparel in wind tunnels to ensure it's as streamline as possible. By utilizing unique fabrics and technologies like Carbon-X Mesh™, Tritek™, and Aero Lazer™, Louis Garneau cycling and triathlon clothes wick away moisture and keep everything in its place. When you're racing, the last thing you want to worry about is your jersey, shorts or trisuit.
