What is your most important piece of cycling equipment? Your bike? Your shoes? Wrong. The answer is YOU! Let’s face it: cycling is not a one-season, warm-weather sport. Gone are the summer days when you and the kids on the block used to hop on your Huffy’s and pedal down to the ball fields. You are a little older now, your equipment is better, and your motivation to get out there and dominate the outdoor terrain is stronger. This is something you love to do right? So why would you limit yourself to enjoying this fantastic experience only when the temperature is warm enough to sport one layer of spandex? Fortunately, because of products like the Silver Crew Neck by Louis Garneau, you don’t have to.
Experience counts when it comes to producing cycling apparel of pristine quality. That’s why a company like Louis Garneau is a good place to spend your money. For over 25 years, Louis Garneau has been producing and patenting the leading apparel, helmets, shoes, accessories, and frames. With distribution in over 36 countries, Louis Garneau is a leader in the cycling industry. The Silver Crew Neck is designed with ultimate comfort in mind. The material is designed to hug your body’s shape and keep your muscles warm. This lightweight base layer will allow you to ride as aggressively as you want without worrying about becoming wet and cold. The Silver Crew wicks the moisture off your skin and transports it to the outer layers of the material. This means that when you are pouring off sweat after flying up a steep incline you won’t have to worry about freezing to death in a damp shirt during the swift decent. However, the Silver Crew Neck’s benefits continue even after you are finished riding. This amazing piece of clothing features silver threading. Silver is a natural odor-killer. This means that no matter how badly it reeks before you wash it, the odor-causing bacteria in the shirt will be gone before your next ride.
Now, you may expect something like this to cost a fortune. Although Louis Garneau’s products are not the cheapest around, they are surprisingly cost-effective. This particular item retails for around $50 in various online marketplaces. So, for the price of “dinner for two” at your local steakhouse you can keep cycling in weather conditions that your competition wouldn’t dream of training in. Who knows? In your next competition, that extra training could mean you are the one finishing first.
