Triathlon | Time Trial
We heard you! Already during the first test rides of our saddles Sleak and Area the athletes asked one question again and again: “Will you also offer a triathlon saddle?” gebioMized Stride is not only our answer to this question, but also to the basic problems of triathletes and time trial riders – especially when it comes to the really long races – and of course training for them. Because the Stride was not only developed to minimize the unpopular “shifting”, i.e. the continuous sliding forward on the saddle and having to push oneself actively back again. Thanks to its special shape it also allows for two different riding positions with the same bike set-up. Especially long-distance triathletes know how valuable this feature can be. And because we know that different athletes perceive pressure differently Stride will be available in two densities.
Which Stride version is right for you and your needs? Do you feel more comfortable on the neutral N version or the softer Stride S? And how does the saddle have to be adjusted to help you chase more speed and comfort? Your Secret Saddle Club bike fitter will determine your saddle type with you and help you find the perfect saddle by means of a riding position analysis.
The ideal mix of large contact surface for more comfort and plenty of legroom for better aerodynamics: with gebioMized Stride we nailed it. The saddle is kept quite narrow in the middle, allowing the pelvis to rotate strongly forwards and at the same time reduces the unpopular saddle shifts. Even in an aerodynamically optimized position the athlete sits slightly further back, which results in a larger contact surface and greater comfort.
Due to its special shape gebioMized’s Stride allows the athlete to take on two different riding positions with the same set-up: the slightly more upright power position (image on the left) which is more stable and comfortable as well as the more aerodynamic position shifted further to the front with reduced front surface and minimal drag.
One mold, two densities to choose from: We know from our tests in the laboratory and on the road that surprisingly many triathletes need a saddle that is quite similar in basic shape. But different athletes also perceive pressure differently. This is why we offer gebioMized Stride in two densities: Stride N with neutral standard density and Stride S, the slightly softer version.
