Louis GarneauMen's Neo Power Motion Shorts(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
I bought a second pair thinking Iï¿½d give them another chance, and I definitely wonï¿½t buy again. Compression cuffs are weak to start with and wear out quickly, like in a few months, and the material thins out to see-through. I use delicate wash cycle and air dry so itï¿½s not like Iï¿½m beating them up. Too bad, they looked sort of nice and had a comfortable seat.
I think the tall waistband will tend to roll over if you have anything other than flat abs. Also, the compression is barely noticeable and the leg openings are flimsy and will not stay in place. In the past, this brand has been accurate with sizing for me - at five ten and between 180 and 195 I always wore a Large. Ordered this in Large and it was too big.
I've only had these shorts for three months and I already have a hole in the upper thigh. This hole is not from a seam it is worn out material. I have put a lot of miles on my bike in these last three months but I also have three pairs of shorts that I rotate. I know a $90 pair of shorts isn't the high-end but I have cheaper ones that have lasted much longer than these. I usually don't purchase Louis Garneau products and I will definitely not buy their shorts again. I will stick with the trusted brands I know from now on.
These shorts are far superior to others I have worn. The compression control keeps friction down and I have not had skin abrasion as for other shorts. I have one, older slightly different version of these and have purchased 2 of this specific Neo Power Motion Short. My typically ride is 30 to 50 miles on either a road bike or more upright Bike Friday NWT. I do about 100 rides per year.
Nice pair of shorts for cycling. the shorts run on the small side tried a large size which is my normal size but found them too tight switched to XL fit good 5ft. 10in. 190 lbs.
I use these to commute all the time . They provide fine compression and disappear during the ride so you do not think about what you are wearing . I have purchased more expensive bib shorts that were not as comfortable or effective
Originally bought the tripower short and returned them for these. Spend the extra $ and get these. Comfortable for 3-4 hour rides. Not 100% sure on how they will last since I have just been riding them for a few months, but so far so good.
Excellent pair of shorts. Well made with quality material. The pad is comfortable & the sizing is accurate. These shorts are my first LG product, but I will definitely buy again. I wear bibshorts on the road & regular shorts on the trail - I am wearing these shorts on the road now.
fit is just what I expected. 160lbs at 5ft 8 ordered a med. It does take a minute or two adjust the fit since they have a decent amount of compression. Once on and riding , they fell great. I usually ride only 25 to 30 miles a day 2 to 5 times a week in the summer, I would get another pair .Have other shorts , So far these are on top of the list to wear.
This pair is my second one of LG Neo Power shorts. I have tried many other shorts that I liked, but none compare to these. They do not chaff me and feel great. The fit is firm and supporting.
I ride 30 to 50 miles at a time on a road bike or a Bike Friday NWT.
Bought these because of the mostly positive reviews. Should have returned them as soon as I saw the chamois. My mistake, and a waste of $100. By far the worst shorts I've ever had in this price range. No change of opinion after two 2-hour rides. Can't imagine trying them on a 5-6 hour ride. The chamois in these shorts are akin to a cheap liner or the chamois in the shorts I bought 30 years ago when all I could afford was $20 shorts. On a positive note, the compression was agreeable to me, so if you want to overpay for sleek -looking shorts for 30-minute rides, go for it.
I have bought LG shorts for quite some time and the fit and padding of this model is typical of previous LG shorts but nothing else is. The main body material and stitching don't really provide compression and the "powerband" at the thigh is useless. It is only a thin layer of nylon that curls up on the edge and fairly quickly the 10.5" inseam becomes 8.5". You spend all ride, on the bike or stopped, pulling the legs down because the material works it way up your leg and ends up pinched where you know what meets the saddle. And you better have the tightest knee warmers you can find because that powerband does nothing to help hold them up. I suppose LG saved a few bucks with these "features" but it is not up to what I have come to expect from LG.
