The world’s coolest saddles with Microtex covers and built in ventilation! Incorporating a wider ventilation channel, Respiro is a range of saddles anatomically designed to fulfill the different needs of both men and women. The various models incorporate a range of additional comfort features including Royal Gel cushioning, modular elastomers to absorb shocks and the ICS integrated clip system to accept SR bags and lights without additional brackets. In warm weather, when leaving a bike in the sun or riding for a long period of time a saddle will increase in temperature. Rising above the rider’s skin temperature, the saddle creates an unpleasant feeling of perspiration and discomfort. Eventually this can cause pain. Respiro (meaning ‘breathe’ in Italian) avoids this by keeping the saddle up to 25% cooler thanks to the cool Microtex cover and the ventilation channel. The women’s models are ergonomically designed to avoid compression at the very centre of the genital area and to equalise pressure on the sides of the channel where delicate and sensitive tissues still support part of the weight.
