Your saddle is probably the most critical point of contact you have with your bike, and means the difference between a fun ride and a chore. The right bike saddle will mould to your body shape and come to feel like an old friend – but the wrong saddle will cause you discomfort and even pain.
Different cycle saddles suit different types of riding. Road racers prefer them thin and light for aerodynamics, while tourers want something a little more sumptuous so they’ll feel comfortable for longer. If comfort’s more of a priority than speed, there are saddles with additional gel patches for extra cushioning and special channels to relieve pressure ‘down below’.
Men’s saddles and women’s saddles
Depending on your body shape and riding style, you may prefer a wider or narrower fit, and yes, there is a difference between men’s saddles and women’s saddles, mostly involving support and protection for the different bones in your tender regions. We also have traditional leather saddles for that classic look and fit.
