The Louis Garneau Women's Fit Sensor 5.5 shorts are a favorite option for many women who ride in the gym, trails and the roads due to the short inseam. With an anatomic 8-panel construction, and ergonomic fit, the short looks and feels like a more expensive short. And better yet, it rides like one. With no seams inside the legs to cause friction from saddle interaction, a high quality supportive chamois pad, Garneaus's HuggFit waist band and lightweight breathable fabrics, you will be pleasantly surprised.
The Fit Sensor fabric has excellent stretch, but minimal compression, and is abrasion resistant. It breathes and regulates temperature and perspiration through light motion of the material while pedaling. The panels are cut and aligned to move freely in the cycling position, and flatlock stitching keeps the transitions smooth and natural. The leg cuff is a women's specific Powerband design, which holds the short in place without constriction. Combined with the yoga-inspired HugFit waist, comfort at the two places where you need holding pressure is ideal for most cyclists.
Garneau's Airzone chamois features beveled edges and variable high-density, perforated memory foam. This technology eliminates any drastic drops of heights at the edge of the foam, resulting in a smooth transition, no pinching points and no chafing. Foam and fabric used for this chamois maximize moisture wicking and the fabric is treated with anti-bacterial solution. This ergonomic chamois with 4-way stretch is pre-molded for a superior fit with seamless construction.
With a 5.5" inseam, and the lightweight fabric, the Women's Fit Sensor short will, despite the chamois, feel more like a gym or running short than a true cycling short.; until you get on the bike, when you will be instantly grateful for the cut, fit, and chamois. A perfect summer or spinning short for women who favor the shorter inseam and like to stay dry and comfortable.
