Product Description

The Gusset S2 Saddles are available in three distinct styles to suit your riding style.
Performance AM Saddle

With design cues from today’s high end, cutting edge bike designs. The S2 AM is our best looking saddle to date, with unique, premium features designed around today’s rider.

We’ve invested in a custom foam base for a unique look and to provide extra pressure relief on long rides. As riders we also ride in the rain a lot, so we also added new rubber Anti-slide™ grip points under your sit bones to improve wet weather performance.

Key Features:
  • Unique staple-less, hardwearing fabric top with custom rubber grip points
  • Custom shaped foam padding with relief channel for extra comfort
  • Built in shock absorption through the saddle base and rails

Performance SM Saddle

Born for the new kids on the block. The S2 SM saddle mimics the shape and dimensions of our new unisex AM saddle with the same performance features.

The SM features a central cut channel foam base to provide extra comfort and styling.

It also shares our new rubber Anti-slide™ grip points with the AM model but with more height to improve wet weather performance and positioning on the bike for little shredders.

The SM also works flawlessly for downhill bikes and we’ll have the entire One Vision Global Racing UCI Downhill Team running them along with our entire S2 components range this season!

Key Features:
  • Smaller overall length and width for junior riders
  • Unique hardwearing fabric top with custom rubber grip points
  • Equally perfect for downhill bikes

BMX/Dirt Jump DJ Saddle

Designed in conjunction with our factory rider Matt Jones, we took the new look and feel of our S2 AM and put them into our best ever pivotal dirt jump/slopestyle saddle. Featuring Pivotal stealth technology that tightens through the seatpost and taking the unique  rubber Anti-slide™ grip points from the S2 AM saddle and applying them to the nose of the saddle, it provides extra grip when throwing barspins or grabbing it for superman seat grabs. From one of the best riders in the world, to your bike.

Key Features:
  • Subtle design with hardwearing fabric top
  • Custom rubber Anti-slide™ grip points on nose
  • Pivotal Stealth fitment

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.

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.
