Selle San Marco SHORTFIT Supercomfort Gel Open-Fit Racing Wide
SHORTFIT is the perfect saddle both from the aesthetic and technological point of view. It has the virtue of satisfying the most demanding cyclists, and it never disappoints those who test it for the very first time. It is a light and comfortable saddle that ensures remarkable performances. The design is unique, and the ergonomics have been redefined through a specific study in order to find a perfect balance between support and relief zone.
The Supercomfort version is perfect for multiple types of users:
1. Riders who don't spend a lot of time on a bike. If on average, the ride doesn't last more than 2 hours, it is better to use more padding. In this case, the sustaining subcutaneous tissues don't have to adapt to prolonged pressure.
2. Riders who spend a lot of time on a bike. If you spend more than 5-6 hours on the saddle, you need thicker padding, considering the time that the subcutaneous areas are subject to pressure.
3. For riders who prefer rough terrain and use Gravel Bikes, the Supercomfort saddle better absorbs the vibrations caused by bumpy surfaces.
The Shortfit Supercomfort was developed considering the specific components that determine the level of comfort:
- Padding: The Racing version features a layer of Biofoam combined with an additional layer of Gel. These are merged with variable thickness depending on the support area in order to optimize the part that comes into contact with the pelvic bones.
- The long central cutout (Open-Fit) guarantees all-day comfort and support on the whole length of the saddle. This feature improves blood flow, preventing numbness and providing relief from pressure on the perineum. Recommended for individuals with averagely high pelvic rotation.
- The covering features micro-perforations to facilitate airflow and keep contact surfaces dry.
This saddle features the side profile of the seating surface with a central depression of more than 5 mm that is similar to a curved line. For this reason, it is listed as a Waved saddle. Recommended for individuals with both flat back (retroverted pelvis) and accentuated lumbar arch (anteverted pelvis).
