We always say how a saddle is ultimately your own choice. What works for starters person’s bum can make not benefit another, but Selle SMP is set to alter that with the meticulous study of riding positions and the functional analysis of the interactions with differing of your 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 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 target is to design 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 is available in a number of 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 specifically designed to provide the rider a flat base for support while sitting for anyone 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 going down the center of the STRIKE series has wider dimensions than most cutouts you may find in the marketplace today. Actually, you can almost stick your entire submit there so you understand it will have a way to allow for all of your soft tissue parts. Another big problem cyclists face with each saddle is the particular seating pattern. The STRIKE series is designed to cuddle the buttocks and the lower part of the pelvic bones (the ischial tuberosities to be specific) to prevent squashing, squashing or else uncomfortable keeping of the coccyx allowing for gentle ins and outs from the trunk when the bottom requires this type of dismount.
Let’s face it, as it pertains to saddles, we’re all concerned with this “soft parts” ;.Since our soft parts are your body parts which are in near constant contact with the saddle, and the soft parts are essential to ones’ happiness, several physicians did research on the consequences of Selle SMP saddles on the genital-perineal regions. And we quote, “It’s the geometry of this saddle that, by redistributing your 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 trunk part prevents the coccyx from touching the saddle, thus preventing repercussions brought on by the unevenness of the bottom that will affect the spine.” WHEW, that has been long winded and technical. Basically, in layman’s terms, that means that the Selle SMP won’t squish your privates.
