Louis Garneau Unveils Course Limited Edition Gear, Aero Helmet & Overly Dramatic Video

Louis Garneau has just introduced premium level Course Limited Edition clothing and helmets and, if you can get past the video, the articles themselves look pretty good.

It’s no secret aero is the new black, and their Course LE helmet should bring more “normal” riders into the aero camp than Giro’s new Aero Attack. There’s also some new shoes with dual BOA closures, lightly padded and sleek gloves and a snug looking bibshort and jersey combo. Click on through for detail photos…

We really liked LG’s X-Lite road helmet and Edge trail helmet, so we’re pretty excited about this one.

Details are light on what exactly makes the up the aero advantages on this (these are just computer renderings), but the ventilation gaps are massive and, well, it just looks good. If they pull off their usual combination of comfort, reasonable price and light weight, then any reduction in drag is just a pure bonus.

The new Course 2LS shoes have a lot of “new and improved” claims: Lighter, stiffer, more durable and more comfortable. They get a dual BOA closure, which should make adjustments fast and easy and, they say, improve pressure distribution so there are no tight spots.

The Course LE gloves look like they might get the ColdBlack fabric on the top and solid coverage of the palm with a thin padding.

Course LE clothing will be cut tight with lightweight materials, mesh side panels and (on the black ones) ColdBlack fabric to reflect the sun’s heat. We’ve got a request in for more details, pricing and availability and will update as we get it. In the meantime, you can check out more photos on their Pinterest page.

Maybe Specialized can learn a thing or two from Garneau’s shoe design aesthetics!

? Looks pretty much the same as the S-Works shoe.

I have to agree with Greg!

That has to be one of the worst videos I have ever seen. I expected way better.

Nice job LG. Look great. It was the same product as what Europcar was wearing ?

I think the stuff looks great!
If I were superman I would wear a giant “S” on everything I owned.
