Road bike saddles: permanently pain-free & comfortable
New bikes come with saddles, though it's rarely the right one. You may not notice whether it fits you perfectly straight away, and your body needs some time to get used to it. If you regularly experience pain or numbness, it's likely the saddle. If you were comfortable on the saddle of your previous road bike, fit it to your new one. For everyone else, we have a large selection of road bike saddles available in our shop. For a mostly stretched-out upper body position on the road bike, where the load is less on the sit bones and more on the pubis and hands, narrow, elongated, hard saddles with a slightly wider surface at the front are ideal. For a more upright position, slightly wider and softer saddles can be a comfortable solution. In addition, recesses in the middle of saddles can provide relief. Many riders now go for a short-nosed saddle for an aggressive position.
