When it gets a little rough and bumpy on the bike, it’s all about that extra bit of comfort. Where “rough and bumpy” means gravel and “extra bit of comfort” means gebioMized Valid. We developed this saddle for cyclists with a certain thirst for adventure on their gravel bike. Be it on a fast ride in the afternoon or an epic bikepacking trip, Valid got you covered. One key to that is his special superpower: those shiny new damping elements we implemented into the shell. As our Area and Sleak saddles, Valid also comes in two different shapes and versions, so every rider will find their perfect match. Ideally with the experienced support of their local bike fitter and member of the Secret Saddle Club.
What’s your match?
Sleak, Area or Valid? 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.
With gebioMized Valid we introduce our new damping elements. Integrated into the shell of the saddle, they provide that special comfort for your ride on unpaved roads – or even badly maintained cycling lanes. Through testing both in our gebioMized concept-lab and in outdoor field sessions, we confirmed a significant effect. And this goes for both models of our gebioMized Valid in Channel or Cut-Out version.
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.
