Product Description

The Charge Spoon Saddle is extremely popular for all XC, Trail, Enduro and Road riders. Why? Because it is extremely comfortable. The longer you ride in this saddle the more you'll appreciate it. No more numbing pain on your sit bones. 

It's light too at just 285g.

Charge have put a lot of thought into the design of the Spoon saddle. It's a mid-width saddle with a pressure relief channel that also keeps the blood flowing to your legs.

The shape is very supportive with the sweep towards the rear and drop at the nose. This nose has enough width to allow you to shift forwards on steep climbs or when you're really powering along - you can alter your riding position.

It's durable too, the Spoon will perform for a long time. It's simply fantastic and at this price point… untouchable. Just look at the positive reviews it receives.

Comfy saddle
by Anonymous user on 31/08/2020

I bought 1 of these saddles. It was so good I've since bought 2 more. I've used many saddles over many years and I find the spoon to be up there with the best.

Charge Spoon Saddle
by Anonymous user on 19/08/2020

Bought this for my mountain bike as the one on my touring bike is so comfortable; day after day in the saddle without padded shorts without complaint. I wouldn't buy anything else now. Cheap too, excellent saddle.

Super comfortable straight from the box
by Anonymous user on 20/07/2020

I've changed all my bike saddles to Charge Spoon now. The oldest feels just the same as the brand new one. They are comfortable, light weight and far cheaper than others.

Love my Spoon..
by Anonymous user on 16/07/2020

My first Spoon has just given up the ghost after 4 years of abuse, so just bought my second. Unbelievable good value for money and super comfy, although takes a few weeks to 'bed in'. Excellent service from Tredz as usual!

Brilliant Saddle, comfy and a bargin
by Anonymous user on 14/07/2020

Already had one fitted to my winter bike so when my MTB saddle rail bent it was a no brainer to order another one, super comfy saddle which has let me ride 60+ miles at a time with no issue. Shame that they have discontinued the model as it is, if you are looking for saddles give one of these a try and save yourself a fortune trying one of the big brand big bucks options.

Saddle Guide

 

Saddle Guide

Back in the saddle again

A suitable and comfortable saddle is incredibly important while cycling. You only have three contact points with the bike while cycling - your feet/pedals, hands/handlebars and your saddle. Because of this, it's vital your bike saddle is comfortable to make life easier and prevent chafing, numbness and all manner of unpleasant nether-region complaints.


Choosing the right saddle

Sitting comfortably?

It can be a bit of a task finding the right saddle for you. Just because a saddle has lots of padding doesn't necessarily mean it will be the most comfortable. It all depends on the shape of your behind, your style of riding and your level of tolerance.

Luckily, saddles are an inexpensive upgrade so try a few out to find the perfect perch for your posterior. Ultimately, you need support - the weight needs to be on your sit bones (the bony parts of your bottom) and not on sensitive tissue areas.

For casual riding, a wide, heavily padded seat gives you plenty of cushioning and support. For racing, you don't need as much support, so a narrow saddle is better and won't obstruct your leg movement as much as a wider saddle. Men's saddles tend to be long and thin. Some have padding from foam or gel inserts. Women's saddles are shorter in length and wider at the back.


How to measure your sit bones

Finding your correct sit bone width is easy, and you can do it at home. 

All you need is a flat bench or seat, something to rest your feet on, a piece of cardboard, some chalk and a tape measure. Check out our video to see what you need to do.


Construction

What's in a saddle?

Let's take a look at the geometry of a saddle and some of the features you'll find.

A saddle with steel rails

Rails

Rails (sometimes called the cradle) are found on all saddles and attach it to the seatpost. They are made from steel or lighter materials such as carbon fibre, magnesium or titanium.Some saddles have hollow rails to make them lighter still.

A Brooks leather-covered saddle

Covering

Saddles are commonly made from high-wicking, durable man-made fabrics such as Lycra, vinyl or synthetic leather. Leather saddles are timeless and stylish, medium weight and extremely durable, although they are more expensive, need covering to protect them from water damage and have to be 'broken in'.

A saddle with gel padding

Comfort Features

Made from metal frames with springs, padded or 'mattress' saddles imitate a mattress. Gel saddles are made from similar material used in cosmetic surgery implants which moves with you to protect sensitive tissue and cushion your body.


Performance Saddles

For speed or endurance

These saddles are narrow and lightweight (sometimes with titanium or carbon rails), with minimal padding and a stiff top.

Mountain bike-specific performance saddles have a shaped rear, downward sloped nose and can be reinforced on areas that impact when you crash. Aggressive off-road riding saddles are longer for more fore/aft body position adjustments.

Comfort Saddles

Cushioned perch

These saddles are useful with comfort bikes or hybrids where the handlebars are higher or as high as the seat, requiring more weight to be put on the saddle. Comfort saddles are well padded and wide, especially at the back.

Women's Saddles

For the female form

Women tend to have wider pelvic bones than men, therefore female-friendly saddles are shorter in length, wider at the back and have pronounced cutaways at the sides.

As with men's saddles, you can still choose different widths with many brands, to suit your own body shape.

Specialized have a range of saddles specifically designed for women

Saddle Accessories

Extra comfort and care

There are a variety of products available to keep your saddle dry, in good working order and also to help you ride more comfortably on it. A pair of padded shorts or tights gives you amazing extra comfort which is essential for long rides.

Leather saddles need a bit of moisturising - treat them to some treatment wax. Keep your saddle dry with a rain cover. Easy to transport, quick to dry and inexpensive.
