Riding on gravel is a blossoming area of cycling. A new popular sport that is presenting new demands and challenges for bicycle manufacturers and fitters. It really is a discipline of cycling, which epitomises versatility. Something that is required in a saddle. With much anticipation, gebioMized's answer to this has finally arrived!
The Gebiomized VALID.
As exclusive dealers, we have been given before launch access into testing and reviewing the new saddle: it delivers.
The VALID saddle is unique, in that it accommodates for a changing saddle position. Necessary in gravel riding. Supporting mid-loading as well as rear loading, both V-shaped saddles support comfort whilst maximising stability. Available in either 140 Cut Out, or 150 Channel, akin to their cousins the AREA and SLEAK, they each serve slightly different purposes.
140 Cut Out
- Loading type mid-section
- Cut Out for perineal pressure relief
- Developed for pressure-sensitive graveller
- Loading type mid to rear
- Saddle shape leads to larger contact area
- Pressure reduction channel
- Developed for graveller aiming for saddle stability
Sitting in between the AREA and SLEAK, the VALID is indeed versatile.
Saddle should not be the bearer of sore news. And this extends to gravel bikes. For more information of the gebioMized VALID saddle. Please do get in touch.
