We believe that in order to fully realize a person's potential, their environment needs to be customized to them.

Mass production got us pretty far till now, but, sometimes, not far enough. Our goal is mass customization.

Saddle-making is one step to meeting our goal: it illuminates key aspects of mass customization. We gather feedback and experiences from cyclists, and translate them into corresponding user options and design algorithms. With the availability of cloud computing resources and the well-connected world that is the Internet, we can scale easily and have everyone benefit from this feedback.

We create body-customized road, triathlon and time trial bike saddles based on your inputs and your anatomy.

Saddle design centered around your anatomy ensuring fit from the start.

  • you get a comfortable saddle,
  • no need to buy and test multiple saddles,
  • saddle-related issues eliminated.

Control over various aspects of the saddle design.

  • you get the riding experience you want,
  • you get the saddle aesthetics you want.

An iterative process that continues after you receive the saddle.

  • you can provide feedback to make the process and saddle better.

Past history you can rely on to build the next saddle for you.

  • your saddle model will never be deprecated,
  • choices made in the past can be altered for a specific, different saddle experience in the future.

A flexible saddle supporting a range of postures, distributing pressure over a larger area thereby improving comfort.

੦ Upright on the tops.
੦ Hips rotated forward.
੦ Aggressive on-the-nose.

Our saddles are customized not in the sense that we make whatever is requested for, but that each is made to fit a specific rider's anatomy.

We do not modify our saddles based on how they are installed by riders. It is the other way round: it is the riders' responsibility to ensure that our saddles are installed and used according to our instructions in order for them to function as designed.
