Through advanced studies, it was determined that a reduction in the number of stitches on a garment has a noticeable effect on the aerodynamics of a piece of apparel. Because of this, Louis Garneau has implemented one-piece technology into the Elite Course Body Suit. One-piece technology offers a minimum number of seams for enhanced aerodynamics and comfort. In addition, the inner leg is seamless for comfort and is finished by a laser-finished hem at the thigh for increased aerodynamics. Laser Cut leg openings are produced by a cutting method using laser beams that eliminate fraying or the need for a hem. This hemless technology allows one layer technology that creates a smooth aerodynamic transition to the skin. A flap at the back is integrated to accommodate a race bib and reduce hindrance. A low-cut collar, long sleeves, and a longer leg length aren’t the only aspects that make this fit completely aerodynamic. The engineered fit was designed in the body position of a cyclist. This type of articulated construction eliminates excess materials and makes this suit completely second-skin-like. Made of Lycra® Pro, the fabric is adapted to the body in a way that offers a smooth surface with no interruptions, bunching, or excess material. Smooth surfaces reduce frictional drag and are crucial on areas such as the arms and legs. Treated with coldblack®, the fabric reflects heat and the fabric stays cool to the touch.
The coveted essential elements of any cyclist whose passion fringes lunacy. A cohesive blend of second skin fit, new era styling, versatile materials, and focused technology. Apparel whose conceptual advances and fabric performance through researched biological considerations. Define yourself by stepping into the psyche of a pro.
