Glide along in comfort

Upon initial inspection, the Selle SMP saddles may not look like they would be your first choice in comfort. But, looks are deceiving, and once you try it, the Glider saddle may just end up being your favorite saddle. 

They aren't the lightest saddle on the market, but they have been developed and produced after careful consideration of how the body actually interfaces with the bike, and if you are going to spend countless hours in the saddle, comfort trumps weight. The Glider, as with all SMP saddles, features a drop beak-shaped nose which relieves pressure from soft tissue regions. This design also means that when you ride, it's easier to roll forward and keep a flat back.

The paddle (widest part of the saddle) has been slightly elevated so that you have something to push on when you climb or take off in the break away. The center of the 136mm wide saddle features a wide cut out which eliminates pressure in the perineal zone. It also keeps all your "bits" from getting crushed. That "highly technical" term is being used all inclusive of the male and female anatomy. Eliminating pinching means 

The saddle is built upon traditional steel rails and a nylon/carbon fiber composite shell. You won't need to worry about your saddle being able to handle daily grind-fests without collapsing. Additionally, the padding is a foamed elastomer so that it holds its shape. The cover in black is leather and microfiber in the red and white styles.

The Selle SMP Glider Saddle is 136mm x 266mm and comes in Red, White, or Black.

    The unique shape of the Selle SMP saddles take into account different riding positions by cyclists, regardless of being male or female. Selle SMP’s sole purpose is to design a saddle which has the least impact to the compression of the pelvic floor and, at the same time increase blood flow to the leg muscles. Selle SMP saddles offer the following benefits;
    Width of the Central Channel of the saddle is anywhere from 3cm to 5cm which prevents the pelvic organs and pudental arteries from being restricted of blood flow.
    Rear of the saddle€™s cutout prevents the coccyx from touching the saddle thus avoiding counterblows when riding on uneven ground.
    Sides of the saddles design follows the shape of the thigh muscles in order to always have the maximum circulation of blood to the legs.
    Front of the saddle€™s €˜eagles beak€™ shape €˜points down and away€™ to relieve pressure from the front of the genitals. Especially beneficial when riding the nose of the saddle while time-trialing.
    In picking the right saddle for me, I referred to the red saddle chart below.
    The glider may or not be the best saddle for you. But by looking at the chart I've provided and a little research on how wide your sit bones are, any Selle SMP will do the job.
    Feel free to give me a call or shoot over an email with any questions or comments!

    There isn't much point in clicking on the chart, because it's the same size, at least on my PC.

    Hey Peter!
    So if you want to enlarge the image, hold down the key, Ctrl, then at the same time with the center button on your mouse, press down and scroll up. This should enlarge the image. Hope this helps! : )

    Saved my Butt

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I rode for 7 years straight and then took almost 10 years out due to having children and my job turning into a traveling job. Then it was just hard to get back. I started using Zwift to ride online with my Kickr. And suddenly I had a ton of miles and easily hit my yearly mileage goal in a few months. The problem was I noticed my butt was really hurting. I've never been picky about saddles, but it was enough to make me take extra days off. So I called CC and talked to an awesome support sales rep. A few days later I received this saddle. I've ridden more miles and have no complaints about pain. None, now it's just due to my tough workout. I was even able to go online and find a YouTube video which enabled me to install it myself. Something I've never done before. It was so easy!
