Channeling saddle comfort.
Selle SMP designed its new Composit with the same overall design as its SMP4BIKE saddles, meaning the innovative shape and pressure-relief profile is fully intact, but without any of the elastomer foam. This was done to keep weight and overall bulk to a minimum, while still maintaining the supportive characteristics its saddles are known for.
The Composit is best suited for cyclists with average and narrow pelvises, as it features a thinner profile than other models in this range. At the nose, there's the characteristic "beak" shape designed to provide a flat base while sitting, without excessive pressure on the genital area. SMP's pronounced central channel was also incorporated, which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised for an enhanced seated pedaling position, where body weight is divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx while riding over rough surfaces.
The saddle was wrapped in leather for the black version and a durable Lorica microfiber in the colored versions. Its durable elastomer nylon/carbon composite shell rides on stainless steel rails, ensuring a secure perch that'll hold up for both road and mountain applications.
The Selle SMP Composit is available in one size (263 x 129mm) and in the colors Black, Red, and White. It is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 200 grams.
