PRESS RELEASE: Bontrager today officially unveiled the latest saddles to join its growing inForm Science of Comfort family: the new inForm Team Issue Road and inForm Team Issue TT saddles. Ridden by both LEOPARD TREK and RadioShack teams, and developed in close collaboration with professional cyclists like Fabian Cancellara and Andy Schleck, inForm Team Issue saddles combine advanced ergonomics with premium materials to deliver uncompromising performance.
“We are fortunate to be able to design products in partnership with the world’s best cyclists,” noted Bontrager saddle product manager, Amanda Schulze. “Our new Team Issue saddles are the direct result of our close relationship with Bontrager-sponsored pro riders. From a product feedback standpoint, you couldn’t ask for a better group of test riders.”
PRESS RELEASE (CONT’): “Pros put more miles on a saddle in a single day than a lot of enthusiast riders are able to put on in a week,” Schulze continued. “And in a time trial situation, pros need to get in as aerodynamic of a position as possible and then feel comfortable enough to hold that position for, in some cases, over an hour. Pros have specific needs that require specific solutions. With our inForm Team Issue saddles, we addressed those needs by combining our scientific understanding of proper skeletal support with our materials expertise. The results are two of the highest performance saddles we’ve ever created.”
“Bontrager has done a phenomenal job of addressing my needs with the Team Issue saddles,” noted LEOPARD TREK rider Fabian Cancellara. “I ride the inForm Team Issue Road. It’s very supportive and very comfortable. I couldn’t be happier with the design.”
Both inForm Team Issue saddles rely on Bontrager’s proprietary Size Specific Curvature and Posture Specific Design technology to deliver proper ergonomic support and improved blood flow. And both saddles utilize Zone Density foam, putting the right amount of padding right where it’s needed, without compromising skeletal support.
The inForm Team Issue Road saddle features a genuine leather cover, solid titanium rails, full carbon fiber shell, and carries an MSRP of $279.99. The inForm Team Issue TT saddle features a premium microfiber cover, hollow titanium rails, a carbon fiber reinforced nylon base, oversized gel-stuffed nose with no-slip cover, and has an MSRP of $129.99. Both saddles are slated for July delivery to authorized Bontrager retailers worldwide. For more information, visit Bontrager.com.
