Garneau specializes in Cycling, Triathlon & Winter Sports offering High Quality Bikes, Gear & Apparel for more than 35 years. Today, our company produces helmets, shoes, apparel, and bicycles, but before we became a thriving company, we were the success story of an Olympic athlete. Garneau’s origins began in the era of wool shorts and non-technical garments. Racing in garbage bags and dishwashing gloves for rain protection were a reality for Canadian athlete Louis Garneau. The entrepreneurial Canadian National Champion not only set out to produce his own kit for the 1984 Olympic Games, he sought solutions for cyclists at large. So our story begins with Louis and his wife Monique launching their first factory in his parent’s garage. By 1988, Louis Garneau Sports grew from two employees to 118 employees, from a garage to a 32,000 square foot building, and from local distribution to national distribution throughout Canada.
In a new century, Garneau began to both establish the brand as a pioneer in the industry as well as lead the technological progression of products. Patented technologies, including the Ergo Air® Concept, distinguished Garneau from emerging brands. The top athletes in the world were racing in Garneau products. This decade confirmed Garneau as one of the world’s top brands in cycling. Today Our passion for creating cycling products that enhance the love of the ride for cyclists still survives. Garneau’s evolution continues with our commitment to take care of the rider - at all levels, with athlete-centric, innovative products regardless of one’s sporting level.
