THE WORLD’S MOST COMFORTABLE SADDLE COMPANY
CROWDFUNDS REVOLUTIONARY CARBON COMFORT
Redefining Lightweight Pain-Free Saddle Design
SAN DIEGO, CA (CFEpr+) March, 2015
Selle Anatomica (SA), makers of the World’s Most Comfortable Bicycle Saddles, is crowdfunding development of its latest product innovation – a carbon framed, leaf-spring damped, carbon-topped, titanium-railed saddle. Yet-to-be-named, the new saddle is projected to weigh less than 200 grams, saving more than 300 grams from its current leather saddle offerings.
GOING SPACE-AGE WITH SADDLE COMFORT
Working with aerospace product development firms that make components for the highest level super-tech entrepreneurs, Selle Anatomica is creating the lightest, most comfortable bicycle saddle on the planet.
TI-RAILED AND CARBON SPRUNG
“The new saddle will feature a carbon-top designed from an industry-first comfort algorithm and our patented flex-fly slot” said Ryan Hosmer, Global Director of Retail Distribution. “It rests on a titanium rail system embedded into a carbon leaf-spring that provides unseen levels of road-bump absorption. Each side of the saddle flexes independently with every pedal stroke the rider makes, providing significantly less resistance than traditional saddles.”
MAXIMIZING SADDLE DEVELOPMENT
Prototypes of the new design have been 3D printed, 5-Axis CNC-machined, and custom-carbon-molded. UCSD’s composite engineering department is currently measuring the comfort properties of SA’s leather saddles, and the new carbon model will be tuned from the data of these tests to maximize the design and performance for the cycling end user.

While production models are not scheduled for delivery until January of 2016, you can be the first to get this amazing carbon saddle. Supporters of this project will get their saddles in time for Interbike (September 2015), and quite possibly much earlier.
ABOUT SELLE ANATOMICA:
Selle Anatomica was founded in 2007 by ultra-cyclist Tom Milton after years of studying and testing nearly every saddle on the market. He found that saddle pressure on the sit bones while pedaling could be eliminated by cutting a unique slot in the center that allowed each side of the body to move independently, while still providing support. He patented the slot shape and created Selle Anatomica to provide unheard of comfort to cyclists across the globe. Tom passed away while cycling in 2010 and the company is now family owned and operated.
