The thinking behind Louis Garneau's top-of-the-line Tri Course Club Suit is simple -- more seams mean more abrasion, a less precise fit, and more aerodynamic drag. So, the natural solution to minimizing seams is creating a one-piece suit. And with Garneau's One-Piece Technology, you enjoy a next-to-skin fit that increases comfort and speed over every leg of the course. Garneau constructed the lower portion of the suit from its CB Gladiator fabric. This material features a knit that has a high percentage of Lycra fibers in its composition. This means that you'll experience more muscle support in comparison to heavy polyester blends. More support translates to less muscle movement from road vibration, and thus, less muscle fatigue. Additionally, even though the Tri Course Club isn't a designated compression piece, you can still expect a slight improvement to bloodflow, correlating to a reduction of lactic acid buildup. And since it's treated with a Coldblack application, it's heat-reflective. In other words, instead of absorbing heat like most fabrics, it reflects it, thereby helping to fight overheating during hot summer races. You might be asking where aerodynamics come into the fold. Well, it's a two part story, with Chapter One being the materials, and Chapter Two involving the construction. Along these lines, Garneau designed the bottom half of the Tri Course Club suit with a minimal number of seams. Not only does this minimize the possibility of abrasion, but it also creates a smooth, laminar air flow over the legs. You'll notice that the inner leg features a seamless design, and that the hems of the legs have been laser-cut. Together, drag is reduced, and unwanted chafing has been eliminated. For further comfort, the suit features Louis Garneau's own TriElite chamois. This chamois, developed with Beveled Edge Molding, uses a minimally-surfaced, pre-shaped design that moves in unison with your body. After all, a non-conforming insert is a leading cause of a...
