Link cycling shorts combine perfectly with fi’zi:k saddles to make the ultimate contact point between you and your bike – delivering optimum comfort and performance. Link clothing’s interface is designed to match with the profile of Snake, Chameleon and Bull saddles, both Regular and Large sizes, to suit the three rider profiles determined according to Spine Concept EVO. Spine Flexibility and Pelvic Rotation are inextricably linked to saddle comfort – and thus performance – and in turn to the Link shape you need.
The Link R1 Snake is extremely lightweight at just 155 grams. It’s designed and cut for a racing fit, with the quick-drying woven fabric’s ergo-centric pattern supporting the muscles to improve riding experience and performance. The material’s density, thickness and module force are calibrated to offer the best compression and freedom of movement, with minimal seams for enhanced comfort. The 3D Molded chamois with seamless padding is shaped to align perfectly with the appropriate fi’zi:k saddle and works in conjunction with the shape and length of the garment that’s calibrated to deliver the best comfort and maximum performance when riding in the position identified by the Spine Concept EVO designation: Snake, Chameleon or Bull.
For riders with high flexibility and no pelvic rotation while pedaling, the Link R1 Snake fits with fi’zi:k Snake saddles: Arione Regular and Arione Large. Snakes do not rotate their pelvis when riding, but instead flex their spine in order to reach the handlebar. Most part of the rider’s weight will be carried by their sit bones. Snake saddles are long and flat to guarantee a precise matching between the rider’s seat bones and the saddle surface, and to allow the maximum freedom of fore and aft movement on the saddle. With its chamois made from a series of 3D Ring Moldings built on a Super Air Base Layer, the Link R1 Snake has a Seamless 3D Molded Cover.
