Every saddle is different and everyone needs another saddle to have the most comfortable ride as possible. To know what saddle is best for you it's wise to take a few things in account: the width, kind of relief and materials used in the saddle.
Saddles consist of different parts and materials which should all be working together to give the perfect comfort on your ride. Comfort is our number one priority and therefore it is also important that a saddle will last a long time. We test our saddles intensively to make sure they are durable and withstand the elements.
An important thing to check before buying a saddle is its width. The width that you need is the same as the distance between your sitbones. There are several ways to measure this. One way to do it is by sitting on a piece corrugated cardboard. This will leave some dents and the distance between the centre of these dents is your sitbone width.
Are you not sure about this outcome? Please visit one of our bike shops, they have a tool to check it and give you the most accurate measurement.
The last thing you want during a bike ride is an uncomfortable experience after a fare bit of your ride. Mostly this is caused by a lack of bloodflow. All our saddles have a special relief channel or anatomic cut-out in the middle. These elements help you to relief pressure and give a more comfortabal feel and ride by taking the pressure off your most sensible parts to let the blood flow freely.
We use different materials for our saddles. All these materials have their own benefits and are used in the right places to create the best saddles.
