Power Pro Saddle With MIMIC

We've been asking, and Specialized has answered. The Power Pro Saddle with Mimic takes multiple factors into account, wrapping a lightweight shell with comfort that women riders have been demanding for years. On the high end of Specialized's Power Saddle line for ladies, its carbon fiber shell smooths our ride and shaves off grams for a lighter kit, while hollow titanium rails add durability.

The cut-out saddle isn't for everyone, and for us ladies—some of whom have been riding in silent discomfort for years—it's the opposite of what we want. Enter Mimic technology, which uses decades of Body Geometry knowledge and methodology in order to create comfort women cyclists can finally enjoy. Mimic's multi-layer cushioning system is molded into the saddle, and designed to imitate the body's response to differing types of pressure. This creates equilibrium in soft tissues, stopping numbness and discomfort before it cuts our ride short.

  • A lightweight saddle designed specifically for women
  • Body Geometry design is lab-tested to ensure proper blood flow
  • MIMIC uses 5 layers of foam to minimize soft tissue swelling
  • Stiff carbon shell delivers a smooth riding experience
  • Level II padding built with medium density foam
  • SWAT-compatible mounts are molded in to add storage options
  • Differing widths accommodate your sitz bones personally
  • Item #SCQ00D8

Mimic can be for men!

I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

My sitbone size: 113 Saddle size: 143 mm As soon as I saw that Competitive Cyclist carried Specialized, this saddle went to the top of my short list of ones I wanted to try. Having done a bit of research I learned that the MIMIC technology, although designed for women, can be used for men in order to alleviate pressure in the groin area. The MIMIC technology allows the pressure points on your sit bones to balance across the entire area of where you’re sitting rather than just on your sitbones. As someone who frequently rides for more than 5 or 6 hours at a time, I found that this saddle did exactly what it was meant to do. For me, it did a much better job than the regular Specialized Power saddle (without Mimic) at relieving pressure points, which allowed me to ride longer and more comfortably. Aside from the Mimic technology, I really found a favorite in the power saddle. Personally I found that once I set up the saddle correctly, the shape of the saddle actually allowed me to pedal more strongly than with other saddles I’ve used in the past. It is worth noting that because the saddle is shorter than others it will require a different setup on the fore and aft positions than other saddles might. It’s also worth noting that this saddle is going to be more aggressive than other saddles in both the cutout and support. When Specialized created this saddle they meant it to be for power. That being said, due to the shorter nose, there is less room to move forward and backward on the saddle, so if that's something you're looking to have on longer rides, you may want to consider something like the Romin saddle. If you’ve tried this saddle and have found that it doesn’t fit well for you, I would personally recommend trying the Power Arc saddle as it has a slightly different curve but the same intended design. Overall this is a great saddle to start with if you're looking for a new saddle for road, gravel, cyclocross or mountain. It's a saddle that does really well across all disciplines.
