The bicycle saddle - Decisive for relaxed cycling!
The MTB saddle - Relaxed biking and good control
The wrong saddle makes every tour a real hell ride! Relaxed and enjoyable cycling is so impossible. Only with the choice of the ideal saddle you can enjoy biking to the fullest. In our shop we carry a variety of seat posts and high-quality bicycle saddles for men and women. Many saddles are available in different widths, which provide maximum seating comfort depending on the seatbone. Depending on the application, the saddles also have different shapes. In our shop you can buy the right bicycle saddle for every use, be it a comfortable saddle for your touring bike or an ultralight mountain bike saddle with carbon braces. The saddles with gel padding are characterized by a very good cushioning and a very high level of comfort.
There are many things to consider when choosing the right saddle. In the first place, you should of course think well, for which application the saddle is needed. Do you want to upgrade your city bike or fixie visually and use the bike only for short distances to work? Are you planning an alpine cross, on the enduro or cross country bike, with long bike days on which you sit for several hours in the saddle? Or are you looking for something sporty for your road bike, where every gram counts?
Basically, you can remember: On your trekking bike, you can easily mount a thick saddle with soft padding, but if it is sportier, you should rather resort to a saddle with tight padding. On long and strenuous tours, a saddle that is too soft can lead to high friction and thus also to pain. Many manufacturers like Ergon or SQ Lab offer saddles in different widths. For that you should best measure your sit bones. For this you can simply sit at home on a piece of corrugated cardboard or foam and then measures the distance between the sit bones. If you move a lot in the saddle and thus have a high hip rotation, you should grab a saddle with a small recess in the middle. This slit in the saddle prevents possible numbness and tingling in the pubic area, also a strong irritation of the perineal area is hereby prevented. Some mountain bike saddles have increased front and rear parts, which have similar effects to the center hole.
Also important is a precise adjustment of the saddle. Not otherwise there is professional bike fitting in which the bike is perfectly matched to your height. In such a fitting also the saddle is adjusted. Race cyclists often adjust their saddle position only once a year, at the beginning of the season, and the saddle remains exactly at this point for the rest of the year. When adjusting the saddle position correctly, just 1 mm can make a big difference. We also offer special saddles for ladies and gentlemen.
Comfort and function around the saddle
A high-quality MTB saddle in the optimal width fits perfectly to your bike and will delight you even on long tours with a lot of comfort. The perfect complement to a saddle is an adjustable seat post, which you can also find online in our shop. With such a Vario seat post, which is height adjustable, you increase significantly the ride comfort and have in the lowered state better control.
Not only for long tours we recommend you additionally a cycling pants with inner padding. So equipped no longer destroys Tour more torture! For the next downhill race we also have a suitable saddle ready. There are special saddles in our online shop, which are equipped with nubs. This offers more hold on the saddle and brings even more control over your bike.
The road bike saddle - Perfect for fixie and singlespeed
On the bike you need the right saddle. Even road bike saddles are available in different widths, which offer the perfect seating comfort for every seat bone distance. In our shop you can buy the right saddle for every bike, be it a retro saddle or an iconic racing saddle. We also have ultralight saddles in carbon for you in the program.
The trekking saddle - very comfortable touring
The saddles in the trekking bike segment are often very robust. Such a saddle is characterized by a particularly thick padding. The saddles offer particularly high comfort on the city tour or the exit on the coast on vacation.
High-quality saddles and useful accessories
A special role is played by the Brooks bicycle saddle of the traditional English company. The exceptional workmanship and the highest possible comfort characterize the high-quality Brooks saddles. Typical for saddle made of leather is to fit you perfectly and will still enjoy you even after many years. When it comes to ride comfort, leather saddles have a clear advantage. In the case of carbon saddles, on the other hand, the emphasis is clearly on the weight. The seat shell made of carbon does not adapt to your butt, it is stiff and very light.
