Team BC's bib choice.
Louis Garneau's Elite Power Shorts were designed to provide the ultimate combination of support and all-day riding comfort. It's no surprise, then, that Backcountry Bike Team athletes rely on this exact model for all of their races and training rides.
Starting with the basic construction, Garneau made the bib shorts from a well-positioned blend of Lycra Power, Lycra Pro, and Power Mesh. For compressive support, Lycra Power has been placed at various points on the legs of the shorts. Basically, this fabric features more Lycra fibers per ounce/square yard than typical Lycra compositions. So, the material experiences an elastic hold on your muscle groups, supporting and shielding them from the bulk of oscillation. Garneau also designed the shorts with a seamless inner-leg and an eight-panel construction. This not only leads to an increase in flexibility, but, more obviously, it lends itself to eliminating abrasion.
The secure fit of the shorts was accomplished through the use of compressive fabric panels and Garneau's Powerband leg cuffs. These not only provide a strong, no-slip hold on the legs, but they also reduce pressure on the lower legs in order to maintain proper circulation. Garneau further achieved its body-holding characteristics by constructing the bib straps from Power Mesh, with an added stretch trim that ensures flexibility.
Garneau included its 4motion chamois into the bib shorts. This chamois uses a 3D, pre-shaped wing design that moves in unison with your body. The chamois uses variable-density, perforated memory foam that's been shaped objectively towards every direction of movement and pressure. And unlike other forms of variable-density padding, the shape ensures that height transitions flow smoothly from region to region. This means that pinching and chafing are nearly eliminated.
