Fit Sensor 2 Shorts

Not every day can be 85 degrees and sunny, but that doesn't mean you always need to layer up for winter to stay comfortable. Louis Garneau designed the Fit Sensor 2 Shorts to help your body regulate internal temperatures when the external temperatures are moderate, falling between the extremes of summer and winter. You get all the LG fundamentals, such as a 10-panel anatomical construction, seamless inner thighs, back and bottom reflective logos, and flatlock seams, but it's the fabric that's the star.

Fit Sensor is LG's do-it-all fabric, presenting a nylon outer layer to the elements that's abrasion-resistant and keeps out wind. The material's inner layer is brushed polyester, whose soft touch insulates lightly and wicks moisture away from your skin. The high Lycra content ensures a comfortable fit and provides gently compressive muscle support to reduce the fatiguing effects of road vibration. LG also incorporates Powerbands at the cuffs to keep the shorts in place with yet more compression.

The AirZone chamois features a smooth transition from pad to fabric to eliminate pinching and chafing. LG also reduces the size of the vents in the chamois, but doubles their number, which increases comfort and durability. The seamless, four-way stretch AirZone is finished with an anti-bacterial treatment and pre-molded wings to add comfort while protecting against inner-thigh chafing.

Strange fit and material

I was hoping for a higher mileage replacement for the entry-level LG Optimum 2 shorts that I've been using, but quite honestly, the fit of the Fit Sensor 2's is strange. There's no real compression at all -- the material feels rather thick, and the end result is that they fit a bit like boxer briefs -- and the material sags in all the wrong spots. They are also quite a bit shorter in length than other biking shorts I've used. The chamois itself is quite nice, and doesn't feel as bulky as the Optimum, yet is just as effective -- although really not any better for distance. I should have saved my money and gone with a pair of the Carbon 2's.

Very fine true to type

Medium fits like medium should. I’m 32-33” waist and they are perfect. I’m same size in Giordano. Chamois is high quality. Stay put with good elasticity. Can’t comment on longevity but other LG shorts I’ve had go the distance. I prefer bibs generally in summer but bought these for winter under tights and am very pleased.

living in florida i'm able to ride year round, which i do. my weekly average is 6 rides and 190 miles a week. saddle sores had been an on-and-off issue, but unfortunately were becoming a chronic problem and impacting other facets of my life, not just cycling enjoyment. having made no changes to my saddle or saddle position i attributed the problem to aging cycling shorts. so i purchased these and i really like the cut, feel, and workmanship. the spandex part of the shorts feels amazing, they look great, and i also like the drawstring. the length is also perfect. do you sense a butt coming here? unfortunately the chamois doesn't work for me. and its totally subjective so i don't know how helpful this review is going to be. after getting these shorts and not getting any relief i took a bigger swing at it and bought two pair of assos bibs and some pinarello bibs (made by giordano). after wearing those bibs and handwashing them in woolite after riding my saddle sores went away. then i returned to these LGs again, and washed them by hand in woolite too, and the saddle sores came back. in short, they're great shorts for the money but the chamois doesnt work for me. i keep them for backups only. If the chamois works for you i think these could be a real homerun for the money.

I would stay well away from washing any quality lycra-containing sports wear with Woolite. I've damage several pairs of cycling shorts, including, ASSOS using it. I switched to Seventh Generation and had no issues. Of course YMMV.

By "road" what I really mean is "in my spin class". I bought these shorts after my first class, which left me unable to sit comfortably in my chair at work for 2 days. Have worn these shorts in every class since and the discomfort is now behind me. Sorry, I didn't think photos would be appropriate

I used the product sizing and that would indicate me to buy the size small. I have a size 30 waist. However, it just doesn't fit right. I wear a size medium in Costelli and it seems that a medium would be the same size here. Shorts seems fine, never wore them on a bike, but the quality was as expected, just sizing not right.

No pain, no sensitivity, just sublime. I have used it for long rides and it is awesome for the next day I have ZERO pain. These shorts look great and fit very good. It has a great quality and for sure I will buy it again in the future. Worth the price.
