Then The Gifts That Would Love To All Cyclist To Receive:
A Beater Helmet
Few things say you want a cycling helmet, first of all are the element of protection no. 1 rider and it is obligatory to carry it in almost any situation.
But also a helmet is an aesthetic add-on that should be consistent with the rest of the equipment, with the right color and a shape that fits the contour of our heads without making it “grow” in excess. We must not forget the comfort, since take you up for hours in both cold and warm climates.

The Last Glasses
Sunglasses for cycling are other essential elements of protection. Depending on the time of year is mind boggling the amount of insects that crash against our face and not in our eyes thanks to them.
But let us be realistic, many bikers when we chose our clothes and accessories we take to dress the most striking, for security (visibility) and because it’s cool.
No doubt the Oakley Jawbreaker are glasses which do not leave indifferent, or housewives or hate them, in Bicilink we are divided regarding its aesthetics, because as far as technology is concerned there is no doubt, they are the very best that exist today:
Technology of change of lens Switchlock, a simple switch that releases the entire lens to make it easy to switch between different variants of easily

Sneakers That Look
Along with goggles, cycling shoes are a garment that a team professionals are different, why? Maybe because it is one of the accessories more personal.
It is not uncommon to see non-professional riders who have more than one model, by color, by the station in use, because they both practice MTB as road and the coves are different or simply because “these shoes are to train and to compete”.
However, there are certain aspects that are common to all shoes of bike, first of all that the sole is stiff, this ensures a proper transfer of power between the foot and the pedal; that are comfortable and which adhere firmly to toe loosely.
In Bicilink we do not tire of praising the qualities of the Catlike Whisper MTB as theCatlike Whisper road, these are the reasons:
Their sole incorporates Graphene, a material that is very rigid but lightweight
Its upper part is soft and conforms to the foot, however the toe and heel are hard to protect from shock and scratches
Their zippers ATOP are the very best, a thin cord strategically partitioned by the instep and adjusts without depressing the foot, resulting in very comfortable
They are very ventilated, which are fresh for the summer, and with a simple boot covers we use in winter
