Louis Garneau Signature Optimum Short
The perfect entry level short for beginners. Features flatlock seams and a powerband compression cuff. Louis Garneau promises maximum stretch and comfort with these shorts. Compression cuffs reduce lower leg pressure and provide support without restricting circulation.
Great shorts! Padding is think enough, but not too thick to make it feel like you have a diaper on. I've been pleased with all the LG apparel that I own so far.
First pair I ever owned. The padded portion is very thick but not uncomfortable, in fact it made riding much more pleasant. That and a narrower seat helped with longer rides for me.
