Ride in what the team wears.
As Canada's best amateur cycling team in 2012, and having been named Team of the Year in the province of Quebec, Garneau-Quebecor starts 2013 as the best professional cycling team in Canada. The team received its UCI Continental license earlier this year, and it plans to add to the impressive 37 victories amassed during the previous season. It's not surprising, then, that Louis Garneau chose to be an integral sponsor of the professional cycling developing team, with young stars such as David Veilleux and Hugo Houle using the team's successful program as a launching pad for reaching Europcar and Ag2r. Louis Garneau released its Factory Garneau-Quebecor Jersey as a race-inspired replica of what these talented team riders will be wearing this upcoming season.
Louis Garneau constructed the Factory Garneau-Quebecor jersey with its Diamond Fabric. This material's extremely light knit composition provides excellent airflow and moisture management. The crosswise, diamond-shaped construction works by pulling moisture off of your skin, moving it to the quick-drying surface of the fabric. And because the diamond pattering is textured, more surface area 'floats' above your skin. Essentially, this allows air to freely move through the material and to evaporate deposited moisture at an extremely fast rate. The result is a jersey that stays dry regardless of the amount of moisture that your body produces.
The fit of Factory Garneau-Quebecor jersey is what the company refers to as 'profit.' This is slightly more generous than its next-to-skin race cut, but it still conforms to the contours of your body for a streamlined, race-inspired fit.
And just like the team riders' jerseys, the Factory Garneau-Quebecor was built with a full-length zipper for maximum ventilation, and a graphic treatment that reflects the team's current sponsors. Finishing touches include three large angled pockets along the lower back panel, reflective accents , and elastic at the hem in order to keep everything securely in place.
The Louis Garneau Factory Garneau-Quebecor Jersey is available in seven sizes from X-Small to XXX-Large and in the color Black/white/ginger.
