All about our sportive saddles
Buyer's Guide | Sportive Saddles
Our sportive collection of saddles ensure the comfort for long rides but also give you the freedom to change position as you might like. A much further downwards position on the bikes requires a different shape of the saddle. Pushing yourself to the limits requires a saddle that does that too.
Your position on the bike is very important. It makes a ride fun or not. A wrong position can cause neck and back pain which declines the power you can push on the pedals. Every saddle has it's own shape which goes best by a certain position. For the more serious MTB and Road cyclists, our saddle series offer Sportive and Competitive positions. Therefore it's important to know your ideal position and find the right saddle.
Sportive saddles are perfect for people riding in a sportive position. This position is mostly used for touring and riding long distances on a road bike or MTB.
The competitive saddles are especially designed for riders who want to be fast. These saddles are perfect for a competitive position which is needed in a race or fast training ride.
When selecting a new saddle you need to pay close attention to the width of your saddle, the relief channel or anatomic cut-out and curved tail. All these details will determine the amount of support and comfort of your ride. Depending on your needs and your position you choose the saddle that fits your body perfectly. This prevents uncomfortable and unnecessary strain.
When selecting the best saddle for your rides, pay extra close attention to the width. To sit comfortably on your saddle, your sit bones must be well supported. Located at the bottom of your pelvis, the distance between these two bones is different for everyone. The width of your saddle is a decisive aspect for the comfort of your ride. So make sure you choose the right width.
All our saddles have an integrated relief channel. Some even have a relief hole to take the pressure off completely. It keeps your sensitive parts free from pressure and your blood circulation intact. Without this channel in your saddle it will cause pain and trouble in this area of the body. A cut out devides the pressure evenly over the contact area. You will definitely feel the comfortable difference.
Most of the saddles are flat from the front to the back. This often results in overloading your back, because you start to move back and forth while riding. Most of our saddles have curved tails to tilt you pelvis slightly up. It releaves your spine of uncomfortable and unnecessary strain. A little bit of extra support to comfort your ride.
