Fizik Men’s Link R1 Bull Cycling Bib Shorts

Fit: form-fitting
Chamois: Bull
Bib: lie-flat, laser-cut

During its history, Fizik has worn a couple of hats, figuratively speaking. On account of the brand’s obsession with all of cycling’s touchpoints, we’ve got literally worn Fizik shoes and sat atop its saddles whilst stretched out onto bars wrapped in its tape. With the advent of the Link R1 Bull Bib Shorts, we’re now also wearing Fizik shorts. (No pedals. Yet.) The Link R1 represents the lux end of the brand’s pool of bibs, but it surely does so with a fit tailored to less-flexible riders. It accommodates a chamois built for riders whose relative loss of spine flexibility means they frequently rotate their hips forward within the saddle, making it analogous to the Aliante saddle, Even though not specifically limited to it. Even though that is Fizik’s first outing in chamois land, the Link R1 feels like the product of a couple of generations of R&D. This immediate rise to the top is impressive–Even though, admittedly, not unexpected. In any case, the brand has made a name for itself by redefining our expectations During the cockpit, so extending that expertise to bib shorts used to be the following logical step, and specializing in the chamois is itself the obvious point. This particular pair of Link bibs is finished with Fizik’s Bull chamois, which distributes beef up as a way to account for the 10-degree angle of approach that Fizik has identified in riders with less flexible spines. The body is made out of a woven material that rivals the qualities of gentle compression and lightweight, airy breathability that have come to define top-tier bibs from marquis brands the industry over. The material marks a determined departure from the Lycra we’ve got all grown acquainted with, so along with the race-appropriate fit and the laser-cut, lie-flat bib straps, the Link R1 just has a feeling of elevating the in-saddle experience. It would possibly not appear to be a significant detail, but we never relatively stop noticing the feel of the material whilst we’re riding in these. Possibly if you want to pass in time, a by-product of novelty, but for now …
