Upon first glance the Selle smp Dy­namic looks ag­gres­sive, but a closer con­sid­er­a­tion of the de­sign will make rid­ers want to take it for a spin. The sad­dle aims to avoid com­pres­sion of the pelvic f loor while in­creas­ing blood f low to the leg mus­cles. Selle smp be­lieves that the curved shape bet­ter fits the hu­man anatomy and so en­ables a more com­fort­able fit. By car­ry­ing the deep cut out (any­where from 3 cm to 5 cm) in the cen­tre through the nose of the sad­dle, not only is tis­sue pres­sure re­lieved but there’s bet­ter air­flow to dry damp shorts from T1 and to keep rid­ers cool in hot con­di­tions. Main­tain­ing the cutout at the rear pre­vents the coc­cyx from touch­ing the sad­dle par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant on un­even ground. The down­ward point­ing nose also seeks to re­lieve pres­sure par­tic­u­larly in the ag­gres­sive TT po­si­tion where rid­ers come for­ward on the sad­dle.
