Sleak + Area
Road | MTB | Cyclocross | Gravel | Track
The saddle is key to peak performance on the bike. That’s were gebioMized Sleak comes into play. Aiming primarily at cyclists who prefer riding on a rather flat saddle, Sleak quickly made some very powerful friends in the peloton. Available in two shapes for different loading types, it allows riders to choose the saddle best suited for their needs. And although Sleak was developed particularly with the male pelvis anatomy in mind, our experience so far shows that it also suits some female riders with narrow pelvic shapes. Because after all, finding the right saddle is an individual matter that experienced bike fitters worldwide are trained for.
No matter if on really long rides like a Granfondo or just the nice getaway in the evening: If you’re going with the comfort first approach, gebioMized Area is your weapon of choice. With it’s curved design it’s determined for cyclists with good flexibility who are looking for a large base. As well as it’s “sleaker” brother, Area also comes in two specific shapes for different loading types. Typically, this saddle is pretty popular amongst female riders. But we got word from many renowned bike fitters around the world, that they keep finding male cyclists who are feeling more comfortable on the Area. At the end your personal comfort is key.
Sleak or Area? V-Shape or T-Shape? Relief Channel or Cut-Out? Please visit your nearest Secret Saddle Club bike fitter, to identify your personal loading type and find your optimal gebioMized saddle in a saddle fit session together with our experts.
Personal anatomy and riding position define the contact between saddle and cyclist. Thus, riders who predominantly stress the ischial area (picture left) load the saddle differently than those who ride with the load mainly on the pubic area. Accordingly, different sitting types place special demands on their saddles. Requirements that we fulfil with our gebioMized saddle shapes.
We know from our passion for biomechanics that there is not one saddle for all riders. That’s why we offer our models in two shapes, each optimized for the most common sitting types: The slightly tapered V-Shape version (left picture) is particularly suitable for athletes who ride with the load mainly on the pubic area, while the T-Shape version is optimized for riders who predominantly stress the ischial area.
In addition to anatomy and riding position, personal pressure sensitivity also varies from athlete to athlete. That’s why our saddles are available in two versions: either with a continuous pressure relief channel as a choice for all those who prefer more contact area. Or as an option with a cut-out, which offers pressure-sensitive riders complete relief in the middle of the saddle.
