With so much focus on aerodynamics, often mere utility is overlooked and compromised. The Course Speedzone Vest (patent pending) offers a new approach to outerwear layering that focuses on the rider’s usability and protection. Developed in cooperation with Team Europcar, the goal of this development was to answer 2 pro team's needs: 1) easy access to jersey pockets and 2) race numbers visibility so it can be worn during any races. The Louis Garneau Course Speedzone Vest has an opening at the rear large enough to allow access to the rear jersey pockets and provide visibility of race numbers. This opening which has been validated and confirmed in accordance to the UCI Sport and Technical Department is currently exclusive to Louis Garneau, International patent pending, and part of Team Europcar’s 2012 Team Kit. The rear pocket opening allows for easier access to the content of the jersey pockets and eliminates the need to transfer contents once the vest is removed. The front of the vest is constructed of Super Light fabric, a 100% polyester fabric that stretches, offers wind-resistant and is extremely light. The side panels and back of the vest are made of power mesh fabric for increased ventilation and snug fit. An inner flap under the zipper helps shield from wind and water, and the vest is finished with a zipper garage at the neck to eliminate chafing.
