The Sensitive Nervous System

Our development team and particularly its female staff have thoroughly analyzed the female pelvis. The outcome is a new saddle design with the best possible pressure distribution in the genital area providing maximum comfort on the bike. Due to the relief channel’s forward position and the wide seating area the resulting pressure is distributed reliably onto the seat bones.

Pressure Distribution

When riding women often put high pressure on the genital area, which is exactly where the female specific relief channel puts things right.

Specific Characteristics of Female Anatomy

More Flexibility

Women are significantly more flexible in the pelvic area than men. This is why, when in the saddle, their pelvis often rocks further forward.

Low Pubic Symphysis

In women, the distance between the sit bones and the pubic symphysis is lower by 25 % than in men.

The Right Size

Formgebung und Größe der Sitzfläche eines Sattels muss zum Sitzknochenabstand des Fahrers passen.

On this image you can see the measurements for size S/M (sit-bone width 9–12 cm/3.5”–4.7”). If you require M/L (12–16 cm/4.7”–6.3”) you can change the size at the top of this page and the image will be updated.

The pelvic bone has a unique V-shaped and the saddle must offer the sit bones a large contact surface with the ability to meet the demand of different sitting positions. Various saddle widths are offered so that the usable seat surface corresponds to the riders unique sit bone distance.

The more forward and aggressive the rider sits, the further forward the sit bones contact the saddle.
