Avocet Bicycle Saddles

Avocet saddles are obviously being designed to cater for the wider majority of bicycle riders because there have been a large number of cyclists who have been more than happy with the comfort and performance of their Avocet saddles.

The Avocet saddle is recognized as the saddle where the anatomical design was first introduced. This involved a couple of lumps and a valley at the rear to help with the comfort features and it has since been copied by other manufacturers.
