We always say what sort of saddle is ultimately an individual choice. What works for starters person’s bum may 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 just a true pioneer in the saddle making industry. Nowadays with popularity in over 50 countries, Selle SMP has 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 in order to produce a complete product line that consistently strives for perfection. The target is to design superior saddles which are durable, lightweight and above all, comfortable. Fortunately they are succeeding.
Currently the the surface of the Selle SMP product line is the STRIKE. The STRIKE series will come in several 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 such as the original beak of the saddle nose. Each Selle SMP saddle is specifically designed to offer the rider a flat base for support while sitting for those long climbs. The flat root of the beak also helps on the downhill slopes by offering significantly greater thigh control of the bicycle. The channel taking place the biggest market of the STRIKE series has wider dimensions than most cutouts you will see in the marketplace today. In fact, you are able to almost stick your entire submit there so you know it will be able to allow for all of your soft tissue parts. Another big problem cyclists face with each saddle is the specific seating pattern. The STRIKE series is made to cuddle the buttocks and the low area of the pelvic bones (the ischial tuberosities to be specific) to prevent squashing, squashing or else uncomfortable placement of the coccyx enabling gentle ins and outs from a corner when the floor requires such a dismount.
Let’s face it, when it comes to saddles, we are all concerned with this “soft parts” ;.Since our soft parts are the body parts which are in near constant experience of the saddle, and the soft parts are imperative to ones’ happiness, several physicians did research on the consequences 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 a corner part prevents the coccyx from touching the saddle, thus preventing repercussions brought on by the unevenness of the floor that will affect the spine.” WHEW, which was long winded and technical. Basically, in layman’s terms, that means that the Selle SMP won’t squish your privates.
