SMP Saddle test center
We are a test center for Selle
SMP brand of saddles.
Because we chose not be a
retail shop, we only carry products that are ancillary to our
bike fitting services, making the choice of carrying this brand
that much more relevant.
We routinely work with
athletes who are seeking relief from uro-genital issues and need
a long-term solution to saddle discomfort.
Selle SMP has established
itself as the leader in saddle design for resolving uro-genital
problems and provide both performance and comfort improvements.
design and fit are an invaluable ally to our quest for
the best bike fit we can achieve for our customers.
While other saddles
are flat and allow cyclists to slide too easily forward
and back (making the bike fit somewhat vague), Selle SMP
saddles are designed to cradle the pelvis in such a way
that the position is maintained as the fitter intents
-all the while releasing pressure points.
Combining these 2
great characteristics, uro-genital protection and bike
fit advantage, made them our only choice for saddle
products we would carry.
We have developed a strong working
relationship with Selle SMP and even have collaborated on some
ideas about saddles and fit. We personally use these
saddles on all our bikes.
Our personal experience could
be in itself a good testimonial for how good these saddles are.
But don't just take our word for it.
Read here the
clinical data supporting the Selle SMP saddles
design and the
article in the medical journal.
Selle SMPsaddles do something no other saddle can claim :
they are medically proven to prevent and relieve unhealthy uro-genital
problems in both men and women.
Our positive experience backs
up these claims and so we fit a large number of men and women
with these saddles to help with their health, performance and love life.
One nice added effect of using
these saddle is also the improvement in performance. The absence
of pressure in the perineum allows for an increase in blood
flow, making your legs feel fresher under the same load.
Because of this, we decided to
work with this product as companion to our
performance testing program.
