Louis Garneau's Neo Power Motion Shorts retain all the the compressive benefits of the Power material's high Lycra content and the non pinching fit of Endurexx leg bands without the restrictive fit of bibs. These materials are also laid out in 12 anatomical panels that reduce chafing by limiting seams to the outer thigh. Whether you're a triathlete, looking for shorts to wear under chamois less winter tights, or just don't like the tug of mesh straps over your shoulders, the Neo Powers have you uncovered. The heart of the shorts is the Motion Air Gel chamois, which presents a recessed center channel and a stretchy face of Cupron fabric to your skin. Cupron's incorporation of copper bestows antimicrobial properties that can actually have a salubrious effect on irritated spots and saddle sores. The gel padding is ventilated, and additional vents at the front keep you dry and limit the bacteria fighting that the Cupron has to do. Finally, reflective accents help keep you visible in low light conditions.
