Because everything we do is inspired by real female riders, we focus on the rider’s need for technically advanced products that provide a performance benefit. This includes riders who are brand new to the sport of cycling as well as Olympic hopefuls and professional athletes. Every individual reinforces the strength of our community.
BODY GEOMETRY SADDLE ERGONOMICS
Thanks to an exclusive collaboration with ergonomics expert Dr. Roger Minkow, all our BG saddles are specifically designed to reduce or eliminate numbness and soreness normally associated with other saddles by relieving soft tissue pressure in women. We’ve developed unique grooves and cutouts in the foam specific to each type of saddle to relieve pressure at the pubic symphysis as the rider rolls forward on the saddle. They’re also gender specific with a special women’s design incorporating an hourglass cutout with beveled walls to ensure they won’t collapse and pinch sensitive areas. Specialized uses pressure mapping from a saddle mat with 64 sensors. This allows us to optimize saddle designs for even pressure distribution away from sensitive zones.
The aim of our women’s line has always been to deliver a full, uncompromising range of products designed just for females with an option for every woman. We create bikes and equipment that are focused and driven by real needs and wants, whether it’s smaller diameter tubing and lighter bike weights, or tuned suspension. Our products are 100% inspired and built for the women we are and the women we meet every day. We are because you are. Now get out there and ride!
