Invented by long-life British cyclist John Downing, the innovative saddle features a patented design meant to reimagine the bike seat and improve not just comfort but also your riding performance.
The SaddleSpur2 is seven years in the making, with dozens of prototypes being tested so far. It has a unique design that supports the lower back, anchors the rider, offering a surface to push against and enabling more power to transfer to the pedals. By securely fixing your lower spine and providing a stable base for your body, you can optimize your riding experience and increase efficiency and performance. Moreover, thanks to the design with the expanded surface, the pressure, and friction from the sitting bones are eliminated.
Made from carbon fiber, the SaddleSpur2 has a weight of just 260 grams (9 oz), which makes it a great choice for commuters and triathletes, according to the manufacturer. The saddle can be easily attached to any standard seat post and can be used on any type of bike, from mountain bikes to road bikes, folding bikes, etc.
Right now, the SaddleSpur2 is seeking support on Kickstarter and a pledge of approximately $265 will get you the bike saddle. The estimated delivery date is April 2022.
