Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Specialized Avatar Saddle

The Specialized Avatar bicycle saddle is the saddle to use for the longer rides, cushioned with both gel padding as well as a memory foam layer for added comfort. The saddle features the company’s Body Geometry technology with the V-Groove plus window, a cut-out section to help improve blood flow and a big part in the process of ensuring complete comfort.

One aspect of the saddle that may have some people hesitating is the weight of the saddle. The Avatar is a little heavier than other saddles in the same class but what you may lose in a few extra grams is more than made up for in the well-being of your body.

The saddle is available in a choice of three different widths to allow you to choose the one that will best suit your riding style and body type. The widths are 130mm, 143mm or 155mm.

The lightweight chromoly rails that support the saddle ensure the weight is kept to a minimum while also adding the necessary durability that means the saddle is going to continue to perform over the longer term. A Micromatrix top gives the saddle a weather resistant cover that allows for the necessary protection to the materials underneath.
