Improving Rider Experience & Performance

For cyclists at all levels, one of the most important aspects of the riding experience is the saddle. From its shape to its padding level, the bike saddle can be the difference between a bad ride or a great ride. Specialized's Garrett Getter was challenged to create a saddle that maximizes rider performance by providing comfort and stability because foam has reached its limits of innovation. He turned to the Carbon Platform to design a new, innovative saddle that results in less pain and fewer injuries for riders, ultimately leading to better health and performance.
