Louis Garneau Men's Alveo 3k Short
The Alveo 3k Shorts are built for hot weather thanks to the extremely well-ventilated fabric and chamois. Alveo 3K fabric looks like mesh, but stretches to offer freedom of movement. It also rebounds to its original shape, making it a durable short that won't stretch out or sag.
The Airzone Chamois is the most ventilated insert made by Louis Garneau. A seamless construction maximizes comfort while an anti-bacterial solution combats the effects of retained moisture, which can increase the growth of bacteria. High-density perforated memory foam conforms ergonomically with the body.
Three words to sum up the Alveo 3K - Ventilation. Durability. Comfort.
- Alveo 3K fabric is well ventilated
- Airzone chamois also well ventilated
- 8 panel construction offers muscle support
- Powerband eliminates need for a gripper
- Elastic with adjustable drawstring at waist
- Flatlock seams
- Back and bottom reflectivity
- 9.25" inseam
Comments: This Alveo 3k is my new favorite short surpassing my Specialized $80 shorts. The material is light but high-quality and air flow is *seriously* impressive; the chamois is cool (did I mention air flow?) with sufficient padding; the inseam isn't too long or too short, either. Material is stretchy but holds its shape and goes through a washer fine (wash inside out and hang to dry). Plus it's just a great-looking short. Logos are tastefully unobtrusive. No hangnail seams or threads, either. Nice and comfortable for 70+ miles at a go. I have a latex allergy that some shorts trigger, but not these. Cool. There's also a drawstring but I don't use it. There are no grippers but the material is cut and sewn well so they stay in place without constricting blood flow.
