Do you want to know more about saddles?

Bicycle saddles are, together with the pedals and handlebars, one of the main points of contact and support on a bicycle. This kind of seat is attached to the seat post; an aluminium or metal pole that connects the saddle to the bike frame. This aluminium or metal pole is adjustable and allows you to place the saddle at the height most suitable for the cyclist, as well as move it backwards or forwards to place it in the position that is most comfortable.

Choosing your saddle correctly is essential to avoid comfort problems or pain and irritation in the support areas. Today there are different types of saddles on the market, from which you can choose the most suitable for the weight and flexibility of each cyclist.

In general, we can distinguish between two kinds of saddles according to their shape:

  • Flat saddles allow the cyclist to have more freedom of movement both forward and backward. This type of saddle is very good for people with little flexibility in the hips, who usually keep their hips on top of the saddle in an upright position.
  • Curved saddles, unlike the previous ones, do not leave much room for movement on them. They require a more static position of the cyclist; whatever terrain is being ridden. Curved saddles are suitable for people with good flexibility in the hips and who usually keep their hips bent forward, with their back straight.

The variety of bicycle seats available is so wide that you can find models made of different materials. There are leather or plastic lined, which are appropriate for road cycling; the anatomical saddles that are designed to reduce the pressure in the pelvic area, and we can even find saddles made with gel on the inside, which are very comfortable, soft and adaptable to the shape of each person.

Seat Selle Royal Look IN Athletic
Great saddle
The saddle is comfortable and very light. The price was one of the best of the Web. I expected it to be a bit softer, however the "athletic" version is not the most soft.
Saddle Brooks England B17 Standard dark brown
Very Comfy, Quality Saddle.
I tried a lot of saddles before buying this saddle. I could not find a saddle that was comfortable for rides for more than 20 miles (32k). A friend suggested using a Brooks saddle. I had previously thought them as hard. I found it very comfortable from the start and as it moulded to me over time it just got better. If you like real quality and workmanship in a product the saddle will delight you. Most important it’s so comfy I don’t worry about cycling any distance.

Brooks England Cambium Carved Saddle C13 Black
Great Saddle from the Brooks Stable.
Very comfortable out of the box. Well made and waterproof and very light for a Brooks. Can't compete on weight with some competitors but quality and comfort make up for this. A bit on the expensive side but quality costs.
