The LG Pro Car­bon tri-suit has a snug but cosy fit and is com­pres­sive enough to wear with­out a bra. The laser cut fab­ric uses a mix­ture of com­pres­sion car­bon fi­bre mesh to in­crease blood cir­cu­la­tion and the Cold­black fab­ric pro­tects from UV rays. The trispe­cific seam place­ment means there’s no ir­ri­ta­tion from the stitch­ing as the in­ner leg is seam-free. But the ven­ti­lated fe­male-spe­cific chamois is thin, the dou­ble pocket is mi­nus­cule and, de­spite the fab­rics be­ing sci­en­tif­i­cally im­pres­sive, it was drip­ping wet af­ter a pool ses­sion. It would work in the heat, but it isn’t an all-rounder and falls short of its £100+ price tag. gar­neau.com
