    Details

    From training day to race day.

    With their incorporation of cooling technologies and the antistatic, antimicrobial properties of carbon fiber, Louis Garneau's CB Carbon 2 Bib Shorts are just as appropriate for long training rides and sportives as they are for hard racing in your local crit series.

    The CB Carbon shorts are, unsurprisingly, made from CB Carbon+ fabric. It maintains a confident fit with gentle compression and a comfortable temperature with sun-reflecting Coldblack treatment. The legs terminate in LG's leg bands of LG's Endurexx material, which also shows up in the side panels. Like CB Carbon+, Endurexx is also gently compressive, so it maintains leg coverage and limits fatigue without cutting into your legs like the usual elastic insert.

    The shorts' 11 ergonomic panels are held in their assigned locations by straps of Highlander Mesh bibs mated to a Carbon X-Mesh back for an overall bib construction that breathes and wicks (the Highlander Mesh) and absorbs fatiguing road noise without absorbing moisture (the Carbon X-Mesh). The 4 Motion chamois brings up the rear with frontal vents, bacteriostatic properties, and smoothly transitioning thicknesses of perforated foam padding relieved with a central channel.

    Controlled Compression

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

    This bib is very high quality fabric with different compression on different parts of the leg and buttock. Conforms to feel supportive without constriction. I have other LG bibs and this one is much higher quality. I love the comfort.

    too short for tall guys

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XXL

    I am 6 ft 4 " 185 lbs -- hard to fit for sure, but these bibs, even in XXL size are too short in the legs and probably too short in the torso. Didn't ride in them, will return.

    Feeling good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    Light high quality bib shorts. Up-sized from the charts M recommendation to XL to achieve the advertised "gentle compression". The chamois edge transition is outstanding and contributes to overall ride comfort. Can't really comment on the validity of Coldblack treatment , but the bib shorts do breath and wick well.

    According to the LG sizing chart I should take an XS (I have a 29" waist and am 5'5"). Is this true? I have never used an XS before because I stick with the few bibs out there that fit me snugly in a small (i.e., Assos Equipe, Castelli, P.I. Pro, Sugoi RS). True - an XS in other bibs that fit me more loosely (i.e., Bontrager, Endura, Mavic, Specialized) might work too, but finding an XS to try is not normally possible (if they even make them in an XS).

    You probably need a Small, not XS. According to LG size charts I should be a small, but after trying several of their bibs in S went with a Medium, which is just right for a 32" waist. I have an LG bib with this same 4-motion chamois and it's my go to bib for long rides, I find it even more comfortable than their 5-motion chamois.
