Louis Garneau introduces updated Groad apparel and bag collection

Published August 23, 2021

SAINT AUGUSTIN-DE-DESMAURES, Québec (BRAIN) —Louis Garneau Group is launching the latest version of its collection specifically for gravel riding, called the Groad Collection. 

"The latest collection includes a specific seasonal apparel range including men's and women's breathable and protective jerseys and bibs as well as weatherproof gravel-specific bags. Wherever the gravel adventures take you, Louis Garneau's high-performance, gravel-specific clothing blends innovative design with cutting-edge materials to keep you riding in style and comfort. The versatility collection gives riders the ultimate flexibility as the cooler days set in the Northern Hemisphere," the company said.

The Groad Collection first launched in 2019 in collaboration with Vermont event Rasputitsa. 

"Gravel is not a new thing at Garneau. For the past seven years, we have been a pioneer addicted to the freedom and adventure that gravel offers. From the launch of our first gravel bike in Canada in 2016 (Garibaldi) to our collaboration with Rasputitsa to this new summer collection, we've worked with passionate gravel enthusiasts and are a mainstay on the gravel scene in North America and now look to share that in the international market. The versatility and functionality of our styles make our collection perfect for gravel and also adapt to your needs on the road so you don't need two different wardrobes," said Louis Garneau, the brand's founder and president.

The collection includes the Clutch Jersey for men and women, which features five pockets — 3 traditional pockets at the back and two extra swiveling ones on the sides — plus a silicon gripper to hold any extra luggage in place on a bumpy ride. $109.99.

The collection also includes the Grity T-Shirt for men and women, and the Corridge bib, which has a unique 5.1 Pulse chamois that limits vibrations. It also has two side pockets and one back pocket. 

Five new models of bags are also available, including options for saddle, top tube and handlebar. The gravel bags feature sealed seams and are 100% waterproof.

The complete Groad Collection is available custom, including fall and winter lines.
