Figuring out how to gracefully rock bib shorts with a tank top in spin class can be a little awkward, so it's always good to have a pair of Louis Garneau Men's Optimum Shorts on stand by for days when the weather or your schedule won't let you ride outside. Stretchy fabrics provide support where you need it while maintaining free range of motion as you transition between seated high cadence intervals and out of the saddle sprints, while compressive leg bands ensure everything stays in place to minimize potential bunching. The elastic waistband rests comfortably against your skin, with drawstring adjustability so you can dial in the fit and turn your focus to the workout at hand.

Great for the $
- Fit: True to size
For the money, these shorts are great. Comfortable. Just enough compression. My only quibble: the waist band is a little itchy. Wearing size M. 5'11" / 165 lbs.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: XL
- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 190lbs
I use LG gear, bibs and jerseys, but got these for the trainer. Wanted something easy and comfortable as well as avoiding extra wear and tear on my more expensive road kits. I am in between sizes but found from experience to go up a size with LG. These shorts are consistent with other gear concerning size. They have worked well for me and recommend them for a decent short at a fair price. As a side note, Clayton at Competitive Cycling is a great guy to work with.
Great for road biking
Great shorts for casual rides
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I mainly use these shorts for easy rides where I don't have to worry too much about the performance of the short. The price is also perfect and was the main reason why I purchased more than one. Overall these are a great day to day bike short.
