Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Selle San Marco Aspide Saddle

The Selle San Marco Aspide saddle features a waved design that provides the rider with a streamlined saddle that is also extremely light and built to provide a great deal of comfort. The saddle looks as though it is going to be extremely uncomfortable with the total carbon shell that appears to offer no padding whatsoever. Looks can be deceiving though and the saddle has enough give in the shell to allow plenty of comfort for the rider.

The saddle is padded with Biofoam to allow a lightweight padding that conforms to the movement of the body during pedalling. The shell is made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic and it is not only a very strong material but it is also light and, key to the comfort of the saddle, is flexible. This is a saddle that will remain the same shape for years on end.

The rails are made from a material called Xsilite which is said to be both lighter and stronger than titanium. It is made from a combination of silicon, titanium and carbon. Covering the saddle is and anti-skid material called MicroFeel. It is breathable and hard wearing and will provide a certain level of grip on the saddle.

Ensuring your seat is adjusted to the correct height will play a big part in finding the most comfort you can get from the saddle. Although the edges appear as though they are sharp, they will not be noticeable once you have found the optimal setting.

Wear a pair of shorts with a good chamois built in, particularly if you are riding on the Aspide for the first time. It won’t take long to become used to the saddle. So take a look at the selection of Selle San Marco Aspide saddles provided for sale below.
