- Not so good with ?leg-warmers
Product:Louis Garneau Signature Optimum bibshorts
Price as reviewed:£49.99
One of the cheapest shorts but possibly the biggest surprise.
LG’s SilvercooL3 pad is held in place very well by the eight panels and this, along with flatlock seams, puts paid to any potential chafing by ruling out unwanted movement.
The leg-grippers are broad and silicone-free, which, while OK on bare skin, were slightly less successful at staying put when worn over leg-warmers.
Overall, though, the understated looks would make these a great choice as a first set of bibs for a new rider or as a good spare set for a racer. I'd happily ride these for a 100-mile summer sportive
