Among all of the components that make up your favorite bike, the saddle is one of the most important and Specialized has options to suit every rider. It doesn’t take a wild imagination to understand why the proper saddle can make all of the difference. Whether your preferred path is pavement or dirt, there are a variety of shapes to accommodate different body positions given the type of bike. For example, your seated position on a mountain bike is going to be considerably different than it would be on a road bike. For that reason, the shape of your saddle should be tailored to match your body position.
Specialized takes it a step further. Their saddles are also offered in a variety of widths to address the anatomical differences from person to person, specifically sit-bone structure. When a saddle is properly fit, it will support the rider by their sit-bones thus eliminating pressure on the soft tissue. This allows for proper blood flow to sensitive arteries. You can’t tell what someone’s sit-bones are like just by looking at them, so we have a non-invasive way of taking that measurement so that you get the right size without having to get fresh! And yes, saddles are also offered in gender-specific designs.
Most importantly, we offer a demo saddle program so that you can try a few different saddles on your bike before making a purchase to ensure you get exactly the right one! See you at the ‘Haus!
