We always say what sort of saddle is ultimately a personal choice. What works for starters person’s bum could make not work for another, but Selle SMP is decided to alter that with the meticulous study of riding positions and the functional analysis of the interactions with parts of the body and the saddle.
Selle SMP was founded in 1947 and is really a true pioneer in the saddle making industry. Nowadays with popularity in over 50 countries, Selle SMP includes a vast following of loyal customers. Perhaps it’s because Selle SMP has spent over 60 years perfecting the ergonomics of the saddle. Lifesteal From cutouts to curvature, they’ve studied and analyzed the intricacies of the body to be able to produce a complete product line that consistently strives for perfection. The goal is to style superior saddles which are durable, lightweight and above all, comfortable. Fortunately they are succeeding.
Currently the top of the Selle SMP product line is the STRIKE. The STRIKE series will come in many different designs to allow for each and every different physical characteristic a rider may have. Sounds intricate, but saddles are intricate. Each model in the STRIKE series has common (and patented) characteristics like the original beak of the saddle nose. Each Selle SMP saddle is created specifically to give the rider an appartment base for support while sitting for anyone long climbs. The flat foot of the beak also helps on the downhill slopes by offering significantly greater thigh control of the bicycle. The channel going down the biggest market of the STRIKE series has wider dimensions than most cutouts you will see in the marketplace today. In reality, you can almost stick your whole turn in there so you understand it will have a way to allow for all your soft tissue parts. Another big issue cyclists face with each saddle is the precise seating pattern. The STRIKE series was created to cuddle the buttocks and the low the main pelvic bones (the ischial tuberosities to be specific) to stop squashing, squashing or elsewhere uncomfortable keeping of the coccyx enabling gentle ins and outs from the rear when the floor requires such a dismount.
Let’s face it, when it comes to saddles, we’re all concerned with this “soft parts” ;.Since our soft parts are the body parts which are in near constant contact with the saddle, and the soft parts are essential to ones’ happiness, a group of physicians did research on the effects of Selle SMP saddles on the genital-perineal regions. And we quote, “It is the geometry with this saddle that, by redistributing the body weight onto the buttocks, the ischial tuberosities, the ischium freeing the perineal plane, prevents the squashing of the neurovascular structures that run medially to the ischial tuberosites. Furthermore, the depression in the rear part prevents the coccyx from touching the saddle, thus preventing repercussions due to the unevenness of the floor that will affect the spine.” WHEW, that was long winded and technical. Basically, in layman’s terms, meaning that the Selle SMP won’t squish your privates.
