Garneau's Fit Sensor series shorts and bib have been best sellers for years because they are synonymous with comfort and value, with more than a little performance on the side. The updated Fit Sensor 3 Bibshorts get their name from the Polartec® fabric that dominate the construction. The rushed back fabric enhances moisture wicking and body heat thermoregulation. Seamless inner legs and flatlock seams offer even more comfort, while Powerband compressive cuffs reduce leg opening pressure and support without restricting circulation. The cut is anatomic, with the panels accentuating and muscle and movement zones, allowing for freedom of movement and compressive support. Power Mesh is used for active ventilation in key areas. With 4-way stretch and soft feel, the mesh assists in temperature regulation you can feel in hot weather. The entire bib upper features a exceptionally breathable Square Mesh fabric that carries limited but proper stretch to support the short section and keep you comfortable. The finished edges help keep the straps flat on the shoulders, and incoming air will quickly release excess heat and moisture.
Garneau designs and makes their own chamois pads, with serious attention on how the garment is expected to used and what features are most crucial. The patented Airzone 2 Chamois is best suited for comfort and support for high miles and pavement or mixed surfaces. It truly is a feat of design and demonstrates Garneau's considerable history and personal cycling experience. Developed with the B.E.M. (Beveled Molding Edges) high-density perforated memory foam, a material and technology that eliminates any drastic drops of heights at the edge of the foam, resulting in a smooth transition, no pinching points and no chafing. The material has reduced size vents than hot weather options, but the vent are doubled in number to maintain breathability without sacrificing comfort in the design used by the ErgoAir system Garneau employs in their best chamois pads.
The foam and fabric used for this chamois maximize moisture wicking while conforming ergonomically with the human body in the cycling position. The topsheet fabric is treated with anti-bacterial solution to combat the effects of retained moisture, which can increase the growth of bacteria. The pre-molded wings off the pad provide superior and ergonomic fit, which is ensured by a 4-way stretch that maximizes the need for the material contour to the body and saddle shape. The entire set-up features seamless construction, and an overall philosophy that relieves perineal pressure by reducing unnecessary bulk or overlapping padding.
