Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Selle SMP Avant Saddle

The Selle SMP Avant saddle is a wide-bodied saddle that has also been furnished with additional padding to maximise the comfort of the rider. Not only is this saddle wider than other saddles in the Selle SMP range but it is also shorter. Although it is possible to use this saddle for road riding the intention was for trekking use. The Avant has been built with all of the Selle SMP features that makes the saddle range incredibly popular and these features are described more fully further down the page.

The Avant is available with either a carbon fiber frame (the Avant CRB) or with the heavier Stainless steel tube and also caters to both the male and female riders (Avant Lady).

This saddle has a Lorica microfiber covering for the colored versions or leather for the black version. The design of this saddle has been created with the aim to maximize the comfort of the rider using a seat with a slightly greater width.

The Avant features include the patented eagle-beak nose that provides a solid riding platform no matter whether riding on the flat or uphill. The saddle also has a slightly raised rear for greater support. The completely free central channel is particular to the range of Selle SMP saddles too and provides well placed relief for a most sensitive part of the body. The saddle is recommended for road and mountain bikes and the company advises that riders with a medium-wide or wide pelvis will be most suited to this design.
