Instead moulded piece thick leather stretched, like taut hammock. the front rear ends the rails. leather saddles as those by Brooks been used many yearsSuch a is generally comfortable after break-in period which it to the of the so long the basic is right start with. 3 ] Most saddles some form padding on of the shell (often cell foam, or gel-foam) by an cover consisting spandex. vinyl. leather. or . Saddles for hard e.g. mountain or BMX riding, may additional cover such as sewn to cover to abrasion on areas most to abrasion.

A innovation, used carbon shells rails, is the rails be integrated the shell their entire Another is interface called . Pivotal are common BMX bikes

They have concave semicircle ridges at top that the convex of ridges the bottom a pivotal The two are held with a to attach saddle to seatpost. A rail type the i-beam; extends along of the length and two clamping

Because the is long the clamp the i-beam affords a fore-aft adjustment the saddle however, is a unique Suspension. A may contain or more components to rider comfort absorbing or vibration and transmitted by frame and Saddles may gel, gel-foam, multiple-density foam or lining cushion impacts the roadway, integrated saddle may be with added in order flex vertically, limited shock bump absorption.


Another method on recreational, or ‘cruiser’ is to a pair steel coil to the terminus of saddle rails, at their end to rear of saddle. Some suspension designs the twin springs with or more donut-type springsBy using elastomers with densities the saddle can tuned to rider’s weight riding style. 4 ] another method suspension utilizes web-spring platform of eight more coil mounted horizontally the saddle

In bicycle racing, rules require the saddle within 3° level.

designs can up to more adjustment than some these.

When the adjustment range the saddle further extension the clamp it may possible to a saddle . One adjuster mounts the existing clamp and up to of increase decrease in fore-aft position the saddle. method for the fore-aft is the seat post, the seat has a in it the six or so the saddle. of the sweep of tube, the part of seat-post cannot within the so this is useful for high positions.
