A new form of saddle at Specialized
This Body Geometry saddle design Power is positioned, not to replace but to complement the catalog range of bike saddles Specialized. One of the novelties is that it is unisex. Thus the cyclist or may be advised this saddle after a global positioning survey named Body Geometry Fit.
The Specialized technicians take into account two criteria to help the rider to choose the seat that suits the rider according to its morphology:
- The position of the cyclist on the bike (more or less lying on the bike)
- The width between the ischial tuberosities
This new form of saddle at the American manufacturer is intended to meet the needs of cyclists who practice lying (or air). Indeed, a recumbent cyclist sees greater possibilities to compress the soft tissue area. Power therefore takes into account this parameter and is designed in two main manufacturing areas:
- A very short saddle in length, remaining off over a large area for supporting tuberositiesischial supine
- A central recessed channel wider (To override the compression on the soft tissues)
For those familiar with the range of Specialized stools at the form, it looks like a mix between a Toupé and Sitero.
