Specialized Rival Saddle

The Specialized Rival bicycle saddle is a workhorse of a saddle that will provide you with hundreds, if not thousands, of kilometres of riding comfort. The saddle features strong and durable construction design that is particularly well made that will withstand all sorts of abuse from numerous crashes to adverse weather and still come out the other side to continue to perform strongly.

This is a MTB saddle that has been designed to give the rider a comfortable seat that is going to last through the toughest of rides. It is a saddle that is considered to be the all-person, all-terrain saddle and is available in a couple of widths: 130mm or 143mm. It has a nose that drops slightly with the profile sweeping up towards the back to give the rider the necessary stability on the climbs.

The Rival is available either in the standard model, featuring chromo rails, or the SL model, featuring titanium rails. The rear sides of the saddle are protected by Kevlar scuff pads to ensure there is plenty of protection and the embossed upholstery, using a water resistant Micromatrix cover, is remarkably durable.
