You guys asked for it so here it is: We know $99 for a Made in America leather saddle is an irresistible deal. We want to do it, so we're just going to come right out and say it. We need to sell 15000 saddles to make the numbers work. That's insane but we think it's doable and we're gonna try!
In order to achieve the goal, we need your help. Tell your friends. Tell your enemies! If you buy a saddle for $119 and we reach our goal of 15000 saddles by December 31st, we will refund $20 per saddle to everyone who contributed to the campaign. But wait, there's more!
"I can only pass along my observations and tell you that if you’re looking for comfort and support, the Selle Anatomica X is certainly worthy of consideration. For me, it delivered on its promises of comfort from the very first ride, flexible, independent support of the sit bones, and lasting, pressure-free riding comfort even on longer days in the saddle."
Two things. First of all, nobody makes leather saddles the way we do. Traditionally, leather saddles are soaked in water, cold-molded at room temperature to the proper shape, and then baked in an oven. This style of saddle making produces a very hard leather top that can take years to break in. Our saddles are hot-molded dry. No water. This produces a much more pliable leather top that conforms more quickly to your unique shape. Hot dry molding alone is an impressive innovation but we didn't stop there. Our patented Flex-Fly slot has inverted rear wings that allow your sit bones to push the leather out of the way as you ride. This technology which is unique to Selle Anatomica reduces perineal pressure, sit bone pain, and saddle sores.
I am fairly new to cycling, it's always been love hate relationship because of perineal discomfort. Long distance riding 60+ miles a day is my only way to escape the Los Angeles hype, for me riding is my outlet. For years my limitation has been discomfort, even the best carbon bike can only do so much, when it comes to endurance riding. This is my first time using the Selle Anatomica brand after purchasing every other saddle on the market claiming to be the "comfort king". Typically i give the saddle 200 miles to break in and usually leads to a new saddle hunt for something better. Looks like my hunting is over... 50 miles with my Selle Anatomica X...
I own four Selle Anatomica saddles on four very different bikes: 1) Carbon road bike, 2) Steel cyclocross, Vintage 1949 road bike, & 1958 roadster. If you're visiting this website, it's because you've experienced perineal discomfort. This saddle solves the problem, end of story. The saddle is comfortable right out of the box, with full break-in period in just a few weeks of short rides, It's also true what others have said, 10-15 plus, mile commutes without padded bike shorts are totally comfortable. No, I don't work for the company!, LOL. Stop reading and buy it!
