Kit up in style.
To celebrate the arrival of weather more conducive to short-sleeves and bare legs, we've partnered with Louis Garneau to bring you the women's Equipe 1.6 Bib Short. With edgy styling and top notch technical features, these bib shorts provide supportive compression for all-day comfort.
The magic happens with Louis Garneau’s mixing of its Pro+ and Power+ Lycra materials. The Pro+ Lycra adds a touch of comfort with a forgiving stretchiness that belies its ability to recover its shape, allowing it to move with you instead of working against you. Meanwhile, the Power+ Lycra boasts a mix of stretch and compression to isolate and support muscle groups, which means you'll feel less fatigue and be able to recover faster.
Louis Garneau uses flatlock stitching to minimize uncomfortable chafing and seamless inner legs to reduce friction against the saddle. Powerband compression cuffs at the leg hems hold the shorts in place to prevent bunching without any uncomfortable pinching sensations. Garneau's women-specific Motion Airgel chamois utilizes a mix of perforated gel inserts and multi-thickness perforated high-density foam to banish moisture and provide a comfortable ride. As a final touch, a small pocket on the back of the bibs securely totes your keys, ID, or race radio to open up jersey pocket space for a few extra all-important snacks.

I only had the chance to wear these bibs once for a 30 mile ride. The chamois and straps were very comfortable. In fact, everything felt great initially until someone told me that my bibs were completely see through in the back! For this reason, I would not recommend these bibs.

Pretty in love with the entire Louis Garneau Equipe 1.6 Kit.
The chamois is the perfect size (not to big/ just right amount of thickness) and bibs provide comfortable compression over all.
My favorite part of these bibs is the unique design.
Only down side was the length of the straps, but that is just part of only being 5'5.
Over all a great bibs for road and mtb.
