Best Short in Price Range
by DocWass

I ride mostly indoors on Zwift averaging about 6 hours per week on a Prologo Dimension CPC saddle. I've worn Pearl Izumi, Giordana, Sugoi and a few other brand shorts. My Giordana bib shorts are by far the best comfort, support and compression but they are more than double the price of these Louis Garneau's. I like the LG's so much I bought and now rotate through 4 pairs. To me, they fit, support and wear better than PI or other shorts in this price range. So far I've worn each for about 20 hours. No seams unraveling, no wear spots forming, the chamois - which fit me really well and comfortable - is still like new and the compression hasn't faded.

When I got these bike shorts and put them on, I was impressed by how comfortable they were. I went for a 40-mile bike ride to try them out. I'm very happy to say that they were very comfortable throughout the ride. I'm really glad I bought these shorts and will be getting more of them in the future.

Cheap chamois
by Miles S. Proud

Bought these because of the mostly positive reviews. Should have returned them as soon as I saw the chamois. My mistake, and a waste of $100. By far the worst shorts I've ever had in this price range. No change of opinion after two 2-hour rides. Can't imagine trying them on a 5-6 hour ride. The chamois in these shorts are akin to a cheap liner or the chamois in the shorts I bought 30 years ago when all I could afford was $20 shorts. On a positive note, the compression was agreeable to me, so if you want to overpay for sleek -looking shorts for 30-minute rides, go for it.

Not up to past LG quality

I have bought LG shorts for quite some time and the fit and padding of this model is typical of previous LG shorts but nothing else is. The main body material and stitching don't really provide compression and the "powerband" at the thigh is useless. It is only a thin layer of nylon that curls up on the edge and fairly quickly the 10.5" inseam becomes 8.5". You spend all ride, on the bike or stopped, pulling the legs down because the material works it way up your leg and ends up pinched where you know what meets the saddle. And you better have the tightest knee warmers you can find because that powerband does nothing to help hold them up. I suppose LG saved a few bucks with these "features" but it is not up to what I have come to expect from LG.

Mediocre and short life
by Norman

I bought a second pair thinking I�d give them another chance, and I definitely won�t buy again. Compression cuffs are weak to start with and wear out quickly, like in a few months, and the material thins out to see-through. I use delicate wash cycle and air dry so it�s not like I�m beating them up. Too bad, they looked sort of nice and had a comfortable seat.

My second pair of these, they've become my go-to shorts. Great chamois and good fitting. I wish the legs were a little longer, but all else is great.

Currently ride for exercise anywhere from 19 to 75 miles. I bought large and they fit me well at 5' 9" 200 lbs. I think these shorts are very fairly priced. These are my favorite shorts that I have bought over the last few years, I ended up buying two pairs.

$90 shorts with a $20 lifespan
by Anonymous

I've only had these shorts for three months and I already have a hole in the upper thigh. This hole is not from a seam it is worn out material. I have put a lot of miles on my bike in these last three months but I also have three pairs of shorts that I rotate. I know a $90 pair of shorts isn't the high-end but I have cheaper ones that have lasted much longer than these. I usually don't purchase Louis Garneau products and I will definitely not buy their shorts again. I will stick with the trusted brands I know from now on.

Comfortable, not durable
by WesternCustomer

I've bought several pairs because they are about the most comfortable I've found, but the stitching on the chamois won't last. Fortunately, my wife double stitches them when I first receive them. I wish Garneau would do that.

Comfortable pair of shorts.
by Chip Bolman

This is my fourth pair of these cycling shorts, and they have replaced Assos shorts as my go-to shorts. They are more comfortable on long rides. The quality may not be quite as good as Assos, as some elastic in the waistband is already fraying on one pair. Overall very pleased with these shorts.

These shorts are far superior to others I have worn. The compression control keeps friction down and I have not had skin abrasion as for other shorts. I have one, older slightly different version of these and have purchased 2 of this specific Neo Power Motion Short. My typically ride is 30 to 50 miles on either a road bike or more upright Bike Friday NWT. I do about 100 rides per year.

Not A Good Design, Sizing Also Off
by LoneRider

I think the tall waistband will tend to roll over if you have anything other than flat abs. Also, the compression is barely noticeable and the leg openings are flimsy and will not stay in place. In the past, this brand has been accurate with sizing for me - at five ten and between 180 and 195 I always wore a Large. Ordered this in Large and it was too big.

I am a fan of LG products...and these did not let me down.
by cyclelotz

I originally purchased these to wear under my mountain biking shorts( I am not a fan of the liners that come with them). I prefer more compression. I have used them on a dozen or more mountain and road bike rides. These shorts are awesome. They offer great support yet are comfortable. I love the fit and the chamois is excellent. It does as advertised. The waistband is comfortable, it rolls a bit but is not bothersome.

Comfortable, but how long will they last?
by Anonymous

They are comfortable and fit well, but after no more than a couple hundred miles of riding, I noticed a thread had come loose from the stitching that connects the waistband to the fabric below. Does this mean they're going to fall apart any day now? I doubt it. I think they will probably last long enough to be worth the purchase price. But it's a bit worrying.

These shorts are comfortable and the waist works well, but somehow the fit is weird. The legs ride up constantly during a ride, very different from prior Garneau shorts.
