Product Description

Louis Garneau rode for Canada in the '84 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. He didn't go home with a medal like his compatriots Steve Bauer and Curt Harnett, rather he went home with the experience and memory of the stifling heat at the games -- a direct contrast to the cooler Canadian temperatures he was used to. When he started his cycling company, these experiences shaped his drive to make clothing and cycling gear that addressed the temperature extremes that we cyclists face as the seasons unfold.The Garneau Lemmon Short Sleeve Jersey is a perfect example of this strategy. It's made of Garneau's Airdry fabric. It's a lightweight, stretchy polyester that is woven with tiny inner cells that facilitate the moisture wicking and permeability traits of the material. As the name implies, it dries really quickly as it doesn't absorb an appreciable amount of moisture in the first place. The Airdry fabric is SPF 20 to ward off sunburn for those lucky days when you get a long midday ride. Garneau uses a contrasting mesh material under the arms and around the cuff of the sleeve to further improve the comfort level on brain-meltingly hot summer days. The third defense against the heat is a full-length zipper in front to allow maximum ventilation. If only there were tifosi along the roadside to dump bottled water on your head as you rode past.The flatlocked seams are stitched with a contrasting color to the body of the jersey, but matching the color of the mesh. The Profit cut of the Lemmon Jersey is form fitting to avoid the dreaded flap, reminiscent of amateurs with hand-me-down clothing, but not tight like a skinsuit. And the bottom cuff has gripper material to keep the jersey in place, right where you want it to be. The three back pockets are standard fare, but Garneau includes a fourth Quik pocket on the right side. There is a tiny buttonhole stitched in to allow for discreet routing of your headphone cord under your jersey so you can pedal to the metal, or whatever musical genre it is that you prefer. The Garneau Lemmon Short Sleeve Jersey is available in five sizes from Small - XXL and comes in three colors -- White, Royal, and Red. There are reflective logos on the front, back, and sleeve to help make you more visible.
