Found: Kontact Rethinks The Holy Grail, Your Saddle
The bicycle saddle has been labeled by some as the holy grail cycling component – get it right and your ride will be bliss – get it wrong and it won’t matter that you dropped $6k on an Italian steed, your ride will suck. The people behind the Kontact saddle claim that finding the right saddle need not be a daunting, Indiana Jones adventure. Swing past the break to see how they might just be right…
The theory is simple: people’s pelvic sit-bones do not vary as greatly as some would think. Women and men, tall and short, the variances are not more than 9% (according to Kontact cited studies). The key, claims Kontact, is providing a flat surface upon which the sit-bones can be properly supported, and combining this with a drastically tapered nose that leaves the oscillating thighs unencumbered.
If you have been blowing through different saddles, always on the hunt for your own holy grail, maybe give the Kontact a whirl. At 190g, and with a 30 day 100% refund policy, you can’t lose. $120 for black; $125 for white.
