Dreading the thought of racing in the heat at Cross Vegas, or race year-round in sunny SoCal? Louis Garneau may have you covered—or rather, slightly less covered, with their new Course skinsuit.

Sure, some people stil race in jerseys and shorts, but most teams have switched to skinsuits, and if you find that jerseys ride up, or dealing with the jersey/bib short combo is too much hassle (think bathroom breaks and remembering two pieces instead of one), maybe it’s time to switch to a skinsuit.
The Course skinsuit will set you back a hefty chunk of change—$349.99—but if you’re looking for one-piece with all the trapping of two, then this might be your best bet. Designed to almost look like a jersey/shorts combination but one piece and fit closer to a skinsuit-style, the Course skinsuit has a full zip in the front and three pockets in the back. For the men out there, a lower drop in the front, known as the “nature calls panel,” makes for easier pit stops.

Part of the Course Collection, the suit is “aerodynamically designed using a minimal number of seams, pre-shaped shoulders, and lazer-finished transitions to the skin.”
