The Iron Saddle is the epitomy of lightness, aerodynamics and comfort for triathletes. It is a concentration of technology and innovation that is capable of improving overall performance in all aspects of the discipline.
With the frame set further back and the saddle position further forward in relation to the bottom bracket axle you can save significant amount of muscle energy. The tapered shape of the nose reduces rubbing between the inside thigh and the side of the saddle and helps with pedaling movement.
The special net insert in the central channel helps with draining and drying of wet clothes thereby helping to reduce incidences of sores.
The rear aero spoiler helps reduce the vortex cascade effect which produces turbulence behind the rides body and it also provides an improved and more comfortable support whilst the arms are resting on the handlebars. The spoiler also contains a reflector to increase safety while training at night.
About Performance Saddles
Performance saddles are narrower than the models designed for shorter ride comfort. They're intended for riders who have a committed riding style with weight on hands and feet so they're narrower and lighter. High tech padding materials and flexible body designs keep your pressure points comfortable and lightweight chassis components keep the weight down. Most have some kind of ergonomic design to reduce pressure on nerves and allow unrestriced blood flow to your sensitive areas. Womens models have a wider design to suit their naturally wider pelvis. Saddle widths vary across the ranges from narrow (upto 130mm), medium (upto 138mm) to wide (upto 146mm). Narrower saddles are the popular choice for longer distance riders as they do not cause the hips to be placed in an unnatural position. Wider saddles will often feel comfortable initially due to their greater surface area but then progressively decrease in comfort as the miles increase, the correct choice of saddle is a case of getting the balance between initial comfort and overall comfort.
