Fit for the road, fit for the mountain.
Roaming free, by bicycle, for three-months is a thought that'll excite neurons of any two-wheeled enthusiast. And if you find yourself frequenting singletrack to escape the grind, then the mountain-bike features and touring friendliness of Louis Garneau Liberty Short 2 ought to fit, both literally and figuratively, quite well.
The Liberty 2 is cut to complement the upright riding position. That means its elastic waist band differs in position and shape then a road short, where a more aggressive position is the norm. To keep the short from migrating, Louis Garneau uses an elasticized drawstring to securely hold the Liberty 2 in place without pinching or irritation on longer rides.
For those mile-accumulating days, you'll appreciate the sewn-in mesh innershorts and their Profeel chamois. The liner's opaque, mesh construction is flexible and pulls perspiration from the skin to avoid discomfort and chafing. The chamois' high-density, multi-thickness foam supports and stretches with you, while a Coolmax top sheet manages moisture so you can pedal in comfort.
The short is constructed from MXC, a textured fabric that's tough and treated with a Durable Water Repellent finish. This'll keep you dry during quick rain storms or creak crossings. Two hook-and-loop thigh pockets give you a place to store essentials without being a nuisance when pedaling.
Louis Garneau's Liberty Short 2 has back and bottom reflective accents for low light safety. It comes in Black with sizes ranging from Small through XX-Large.
