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.
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.
We know from our tests in the laboratory and on the road that surprisingly many athletes need a saddle that is quite similar in basic shape. But different athletes also perceive pressure differently. This is why we offer gebioMized Sleak in two densities two choose from: a neutral standard density and a slightly softer version.
