Louis Garneau Elite Bib Short is updated for 2012 with new aggressive race-inspired graphics. Lycra Pro material is one of Louis' premier fabrics. Power Mesh allows you to ride the distance without overheating. Ergonomic fit thanks to 10 panels, flatlock
Weaknesses: - When new, pad attacked me some when not on the bike.
Comfortable and a good price through bonktown. They seem to wick pretty good, but I was wearing them under running tights on a 40F ride. I would have given them a 5, but the pad when new had a habit of trying to go up my crack when just walking in them. On the bike, they were very comfortable and worked well. The non-silicone leg hems seem like they will pull less hair than my other shorts.
I am 5'11", 195, with a 36" waist (bit long in the torso) and I got the XL. I am very happy with the fit; my Sugoi's are L and also fit very well.
