Maximizing speed through the swim, bike, and run stages, the Louis Garneau Women's Pro 8 Carbon Shorts support key muscle groups to combat fatigue during races. Ergonomically shaped with compression and superior stretch, these race shorts fit tightly, but without compromising freedom of movement on the race course. Integrated padding reduces saddle pressure and jarring road vibration on your bike while drying quickly once you leave the water. This Tri Air chamois sports a women specific design, with four way stretch and breathable perforations for maximized comfort. It's also antimicrobial for lasting freshness, especially after submerging in water during the initial swim stage. The shorts are mainly comprised of Light Power fabric, which pulls moisture off your skin for rapid evaporation and airy cool comfort. This fabric also brings much needed compression to your race day efforts. Carbon X Mesh panels promote breathability, keeping you pushing for the finish line without overheating. The HugFit waist comfortably distributes pressure over a wider surface, with an internal drawcord tie for a secure fit. Seamless inner legs reduce unneeded bulk to eliminate bunching on your bike. Other race savvy design features include reflective accents for visibility, Aero Lazer thigh bands for aerodynamics, and UPF 50 for protection from scorching UV rays.
