The clock never stops in triathlon, so earning a PR requires gear that isn't going to cost you any extra time. Louis Garneau is well aware of that, and the brand has been making tri gear for long enough to understand the importance of a streamlined fit and clothing that will stay in place throughout all three of the event's disciplines and the transitions in between. Its Tri Course Club Shorts offer everything you need from a pair of tri shorts: a second skin fit, flexibility, a fast drying chamois, and the added benefits of CB Gladiator fabric construction. CB Gladiator refers to Garneau's fast drying polyester and spandex blend used to construct the main body of the shorts, which Garneau treats with a coldblack finish to counteract the black fabric's natural inclination to absorb UV rays, helping them reflect the sun to keep you cooler throughout your race or training miles. The fabric's high spandex content allows it to achieve a supportive fit that works to reduce muscle fatigue from road vibrations as you race, and the elimination of inner leg seams keeps it lying smoothly as you move quickly in and out of transitions. While you're riding, the Tri Elite chamois provides important protection in the form of light padding, and it's made with beveled edges and quick drying fabric to ensure it doesn't inhibit movement or cause discomfort through the other legs of your race. Garneau includes laser cut hems to keep the legs cleanly in place as well as a rear pocket to store crucial race nutrition and an elastic waist with drawstring to allow for a fit that won't budge.
