Product Description

The Fabric Scoop Sport Radius saddle has comfort by design. Traditionally, a saddle cover is stretched over foam padding and screwed and stapled to the base. By separating cover, base and rail into three discrete pieces, Fabric eliminated the stretch and tension and been able to use a softer foam as a result.

Reinvent your ride

Enjoy unparalleled comfort and performance in a saddle shaped for you. Coming in three profiles, depending on your style of riding, the ground-breaking design reinvents saddle making to create an incredibly responsive, comfortable, light and durable saddle.

Built-in comfort

Our state-of-the-art saddle design builds in comfort to every ride. Our unique three-part construction strips away the compression and tension found in traditional hard, stretched-cover saddles. We do this by bonding a waterproof microfiber straight onto a flexible base, allowing us to use a softer foam, giving you added comfort, wherever you're headed.

Designed just for you

Whatever your style of cycling, we've got a Scoop saddle for you. Try our 'flat' profile if you like to get low to cheat the wind, and place less weight on the saddle. 'Shallow' is if you need a saddle for all types of ride, balancing comfort and movement with a slightly curved profile, flexible base and low-density foam. 'Radius' is if you like to sit upright and enjoy a comfortable ride.

Durable and flexible

Our unique saddle design not only gives you great comfort, but the bonded cover is super-easy to clean, with smooth lines, and superb durability.

Radius is for cruising

The Radius profile has the roundest shape through the rear section and maximum padding. The Radius profile is designed for an upright riding position; typically bikes in this category have handlebars slightly higher than the saddle, causing the rider to sit taller and requiring the most padding to support their weight.

    Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

    Really comfy saddle
    by Anonymous user on 27/08/2020

    The stock saddle on my MTB was becoming worn and uncomfortable so I searched online for recommendations of what to replace it with and this came up. For £30 I thought it was worth a try, and it hasn’t disappointed. Easy to fit, it has provide numb-bum free riding for several days on the trot while on holiday over a variety of terrain. I was surprised how comfortable it is for such a low price. Great saddle so far, only had it a couple of weeks so don’t know how it will last, but at the price it was a real bargain.

    Bought this as a replacement for the standard one that came with my gravel bike. Really comfy and the ‘Scoop’ shape is perfect for my riding position.

    Really comfortable but broken after light use
    by Anonymous user on 22/03/2020

    I would totally recommend this saddle if not for the rails bending and the whole saddle deforming after light use. I am well within the weight limits of a piece of kit like this or and I've not had any terrible crashes with it. A bit dissapointed

    Nicely made saddle with a shape that will work for a wide range of riders regardless of riding style. Lightweight for a manganese railed saddle and a very good price

    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.
