    Optimum Cycling Knicker

    Maybe you're too tall for most knee warmers to span the gap between upper shin and shorts. Maybe you just hate having to babysit them in order to maintain coverage during a ride. Whatever the source of your warmer woes, Louis Garneau's Optimum Cycling Knickers for Men has the answer for chilly May and September mornings that would normally warrant the shorts/warmer combo.

    The Otpimum blends LG's Signature Mat and Embossed fabrics for a construction that targets stretch and comfort. The lack of a fleecy internal face means that these materials are ideal for temperatures ranging from the mid 50s to the mid 60s, though personal preference could push that range by a few degrees Fahrenheit in either direction.

    The knicks are finished with a four-way-stretch, graduated chamois that provides support where it's desirable and relief where it's decidedly not. LG's typical Powerband surfaces at the hems to provide grip, and an internal waist pocket keeps your house key from mingling with spare arm warmers, wind vests, and knit gloves in your jersey pockets.

    • Lightweight knickers for cool-weather cycling
    • High-stretch material shields knees without adding insulation
    • AirSport chamois provides support for casual and training rides
    • Gently compressive leg bands maintain coverage
    • Finished with an internal waist pocket and reflective details
    • Item #LGN00CK

    Great fit, great product

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:True to size

    I’m 5’11”, 200lbs and the L fits perfectly. Very comfortable, and does the job in temps between 45 to 55 degrees. I prefer it over the thermal and likely buying another pair this week.

    I'll preface this by saying this is my first foray into the world of cycling spandex. And after the first ride, I now understand why it exists. I felt really comfortable and stable in the saddle. Chamois felt good. Fit seems good. For the pricepoint, I'm sure they're not the most amazing knickers but I'm digging them so far and can tell they're going to be great for fall-spring Utah riding.
