Louis Garneau Women's Zone 3K Short has been selected Winner of the Editors’ Choice Award for Best Women's Short Under $100 USD by Bicycling for 2010. "We have been focused on engineering technical products for everyday applications, and the Women's Zone 3K Short is the perfect example. By combining comfort and performance technology including a women's specific HuggFit Waist, Powerband Compressive Leg Cuff, and Flatlock Stitching with increasingly integral functionality like front and back reflective accents and logos and a 5.5" inseam that appeals to women, we have hit the nail on the head with the Zone 3K Short," remarks International Marketing Director, Pierre Perron.
The Women's Zone 3K short is made of Alveo 3K fabric with a mesh-look-alike construction that provides ventilation, recovers shape, and is comfortable on the skin. The patented AirZone chamois is developed with B.E.M. (Beveled Molding Edges) high-density perforated memory foam. This technology eliminates any drastic drops of heights at the edge of the foam, resulting in a smooth transition and reducing pinching or chafing. The outer fabric is treated with an anti-bacterial solution, conforms ergonomically to the body with pre-molded wings, and maximizes comfort through seamless construction and 4-way stretch. The chamois also consists of vents and channels which help maintain the claim of the most ventilated chamois. The 4-panel short features a HuggFit Waist, Powerband Compressive Leg Cuff, Flatlock Seams, and reflective accents and logos.
