Forma Saddle

Selle SMP crafts its Forma saddle in the same vein as the Composit saddle but in a slightly wider width perfect for those of us with broader sit bones. The innovative shape and pressure-relief channel are fully intact and without any excessive padding. This keeps weight and bulk to a minimum while maintaining the shape and supportive characteristics SMP saddles are known for.

The Forma sits at 137mm wide and is best suited for medium to large pelvises and it features a thinner profile than other models in this range. At the front of the saddle is the characteristic beak nose shape designed to relieve pressure while seated. SMP's pronounced "free" central channel, further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised to support a powerful 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 is wrapped in leather on the black version and a durable Lorica microfiber on the colored versions. Its durable elastomer nylon and carbon composite shell is supported by stainless steel rails so you'll have a secure and durable perch that'll hold up to both road and mountain applications.

Eliminates Traditional Cycling Pain

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

As many of us know the Selle SMP saddles catch the naked eye due to their unique shape. But what many riders alike may not know is how well their nontraditional design work in sync with how the human anatomy performs under stresses such as long climbs or even longer days in the saddle. The Forma is the saddle for the cyclist that doesn't prefer a lot of padding, or that prefer a more stripped down version of a saddle. The shape works well for anyone that cannot find comfort on a traditional saddle shape such as a Fabric Scoop, or Selle Italia SP-01. The SMP saddles are designed to always keep comfort in mind, allowing you to rack up training and base miles, or have pain from your saddle be the very last thought in a race.
