Louis Garneau Women's Size Chart With the Women's Neo Power Motion 7 Shorts, compression is the key word. But what is the advantage of compression? First, it favors blood circulation in the muscles; good blood circulation during long rides allows better performance and increases resistance to fatigue by up to 10 - 20 %. Second, it helps prevent muscle vibration which causes additional fatigue and soreness. The Neo Power Motion Shorts are made with Power + LYCRA(R) fiber which offers great stretchability and compressive properties. In addition, a women's Powerband at the cuff reduces lower leg pressure and provides support without restricting circulation. The women's Motion Airgel chamois comes built in for added protection. Features: - Bottoms Fabric: Power + LYCRA(R) fiber: A popular compressive fabric that is designed to fit muscle shape and provide maximum support for muscular fibers - Power Mesh: Four-way stretchability, extreme breathability and quick drying - Bottom Inseam: 7" / 18 cm - Bottoms Pockets: Gel pocket at thigh - Bottoms Seams: Flatlock seams - Bottoms Visibility Features: Back reflective accents, Front reflective accent - Bottoms Waist: Flattering HugFit foldable waist band Motion Airgel Chamois: - Fabric treated with anti-bacterial solution to combat the effects of retained moisture, which can increase the growth of bacteria - Comfortable chamois, ideal for long rides - Perforated gel inserts offer comfort and breathability - Multi-thickness perforated high-density foam for better moisture evacuation - Long-term antibacterial properties - Vents at the front help maintain breathability without sacrificing comfort - Central channel shaped to relieve pressure from the urethra(men only) - A deep slit an the back is bridged by vented mesh to allow for multidirectional motion and amazing comfort - Developed with B.E.M. (Beveled Edge Molding) high-density perforated memory foam. This technology eliminates drastic drops of heights from one area to the other, resulting in a smooth transition without pinching points to eliminate chafing - Ergo Air(R) concept for maximum ventilation - Louis Garneau patented ergonomic shape.
