SUP­PORT­ERS’ CLUB

Cycling Plus - - NEW KIT -

SMP claims that its ex­ten­sive er­gonomic stud­ies into rid­ers’ shapes and their po­si­tion on the bike mean that a sad­dle should be de­signed to sup­port phys­i­cal weight and its dis­tri­bu­tion over the pelvic bones. It claims its de­sign spreads weight pre­cisely over the is­chial tuberos­ity (sit bones), while pro­tect­ing the coc­cyx from bruises and shocks from rough road sur­faces.

The deep elas­tomer­based pad­ding and split de­sign are claimed to pre­vent com­pres­sion in the del­i­cate per­ineal struc­ture, thus avoid­ing vein and cap­il­lary ves­sel dam­age and the chance of nerve in­jury.
