The unique shape of the Selle SMP saddle, takes 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. The width of the Central Channel of the saddle is anywhere from 3cm to 5cm which prevents the pelvic organs and pudendal arteries from being restricted of blood flow.
The rear of the saddles 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 saddleÂs' eagles beak shape Âpoints down and away to relieve pressure from the front of the genitals. Especially beneficial when riding the nose of the saddle while time-trialing. The glider may or not be the best saddle for you. But by looking at the sizing chart and doing a little research on how wide your sit bones are, any Selle SMP will do the job.

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!
