Kick Your Apparel Into High Gear With These Bottoms

As the temperatures start to drop, make sure you have the gear that you need to stay warm through the autumn and spring months. The Louis Garneau Optimum 2 Knickers for women cover the knee, providing you with everything you need to keep riding through cooler weather.

An ergonomic fit utilizes the embossed Quantum matte fabric so you can hit the road in style, supporting your body while in motion to help you to perform better every time you put them on. Signature Mat material delivers the perfect amount of stretch, with a little bit of extra give in key areas like the waist, knee, and ankle. The innovative Powerband compression cuff reduces pressure on your lower leg – without restricting circulation – while flatlock seams were engineered to eliminate chafing and skin irritation. Featuring the AirSport chamois, which has been designed to reduce pinching and soreness, providing a smooth transition from one position to another.

In an effort to boost rideability, even more, the Louis Garneau Women's Optimum 2 Knickers benefit from an antibacterial treatment that can fight the effects of retained moisture and bacteria growth. A single back pocket provides storage space for a phone, MP3 player, or even some gels so you can power through your ride, while additional reflective accents increase visibility in low-light conditions. Make the most of your time on the bicycle with these one-of-a-kind tights.

    Updated review

    After riding in these several times, I have to say that they are really growing on me. I like the lighter weight of the fabric. It hasn't gotten too hot yet (it's only springtime), and the material dries a little faster than Garneau's heavier knickers. I previously thought that they were translucent, but a friend confirmed that in bright sunshine they are opaque. Still haven�t done a long ride in these, so I'm unsure about the chamois for a day in the saddle... They're becoming a favorite, though.

    These are beautifully constructed, but unfortunately they are totally visible-butt-crack knickers, quite see through, which is pretty much a dealbreaker for me. It's a bummer because they otherwise look great. I recommend spending the extra $20 for the the Garneau neo power airzone, which in my opinion are better for cool weather anyway. I finally retired some older Airzone knickers after 5 years, and they are *very* durable and never became translucent.
