Description of Northwave Kinetic Lightning Bib Shorts Long – 10 black
Kinetic. Redesigned from zero, this new project is the culmination of years of research to achieve one goal: provide a definitive response to what all hardcore cycling fans, from pro riders to recreational cyclists, really want.
Every detail is the result of nonstop testing. Every choice was made to make you a more efficient rider, facilitate breathing and improve the dynamics of your legs in every pedal stroke. Northwave has got through countless prototypes and assessed myriad solutions: but that’s what it takes to create clothing that’s perfectly form fitting and becomes one with a rider in motion. Every garment in the Kinetic project shares the same mission: maximized performance on every ride. Norhtwave has minimized friction points to deliver maximum ergonomics and comfort.
The synergy of the cut using the highest-performing materials helps to support and optimize muscle performance. Performance was also paramount when they redesigned the pads, radically raising the bar for in-saddle comfort. Leaving the rider free from everything, now it’s just you and the road. The Kinetic project features four models: Lightning, Fast, Dynamic and Swift, designed specifically for women. Each one has its own unique features, all designed to ensure the same unique experience. Feel the difference.
At the heart of the Kinetic project are four pads, which have been completely reengineered to meet three essential design criteria. Each one has its own distinctive features to offer every rider the best custom-fit solution. Now you can choose a pad based solely on what you need.
۱٫ Don’t see the protection, feel it! Unlike traditional pads, the shape of the foam is orientated towards the most crucial point of rider-bike contact, the saddle, where it morphs and adapts to give you an unprecedented connection with the bike. Northwave has got rid of all the seams and prints that came into contact with your skin to leave room for the bare essentials. They’ve redesigned the outer edge to minimize all superfluous surfaces so it adapts to the contours of the individual rider.
۲٫ The highest density foam on the market. All the pads have unique foam with a density of 120 kg/m3 and graduated thickness to custom fit different areas and ensure constant support even on long rides.
۳٫ Unrivalled breathability. With 3 mm holes set only 8 mm apart across the entire surface of the pad, no other design can rival the new Kinetic pads when it comes to breathability. Cold sculpted instead of heat moulded, they keep the individual cells open for even better airflow. An antibacterial treatment is applied to all pads to ensure maximum hygiene.

The K130 3D pre-shaped pad redefines the meaning of ergonomics on saddle. The bibshorts have a Biomap construction with pre-shaped panels which acts in perfect synergy with the body’s natural movement. More features are the tremendous contenitive fabric with excellent power recovery provides unique support and long-lasting fit, the treatment which reduces heat build-up and the inner legs which are made of anti-pilling wear resistant fabric. Furthermore the bib shorts have thermowelded seamless braces to prevent chafing and provide softer feel against the skin, raw cut end leg with gripper for second skin like fit and reflective details on legs and on back.
K130 3D seat pad: Even the best traditionally built pads have to obey one important rule: they must adapt to the shape of the rider’s body in the saddle. The new K130 3D pad is created with a naturally anatomic design as the 3D construction is pre-shaped to match the contours of the body. So you’ll no longer feel like you’re wearing a pad, ensuring freedom of movement like you’ve never experienced before.
