Do you know about saddles?
The function of rails do not merely fix the saddle onto the seat post. In fact, all of its material is flexible in some degrees. The function, of which is similar to the suspension on the suspension bikes, can absorb the upward and downward vibrating impact, too. In additions, the rail is one important factor that decides the weight of the saddle. The rails of average prices are made up of steel, meaning they weigh more. Some saddles for special use even use springs, air-bags, and other flexible substance to strengthen the rails flexibility.
The shell is the main part of saddles. In addition to the flexibility like the Rail, helping absorb the upward and downward vibrating impact, the design and figure are the number 1 factors that decide the characteristics of the saddle's function. Although the main material is plastic, but how to find the strong and flexible plastic composition is one of all the manufacturers main concerns.
The thickness and softness of the foam is the key point of easy riding feeling. "The softer, the more comfortable" theory can't be applied in any cases. The softness is usually contrary to the pedalling efficiency and weight. Hence, generally speaking, the models which emphasize the importance of comfort, like city bikes and trekking bikes often come with thin and hard saddles. As for the free ride and downhill being popular recently, they use the thicker foam in order to increase the ability of absorbing vibration.
THE SITTING POINT,
In spite of its small size, saddles could not be seated on any sport at any will. There is often a special spot which we call the sitting point. The sitting point can supply you the most comfortable feelings and the best pedaling efficiency. When riding on the bicycle, we will naturally sit on the point. However, others will make you uneasy and step on the pedal differently.
THE LENGTH OF THE FRONT OF THE SADDLE,
For good function saddles, they are often longer than ordinary ones, in order to provide more various postures of riding. For instance, on the uphill, riders can put their bottoms temporarily more forward to get the best position of pedaling, and adjust the balance of the bike. Longer saddles are also convenient for putting of the shoulders. As for the city bikes and trekking bikes which demand the comfort, they usually have shorter and thicker saddles to let you get on and off the bikes more conveniently and decrease the pressure off of the front aswell.
THE MIDDLE PARTS WIDTH AND CURVE OF SADDLES,
This position is usually where the sitting point is, so that it is especially important. Every kind of saddle has different width and curve depending on the design, usage,riding posture and road conditions. The narrow and pointed saddles will make the contacting area get smaller and consequently make the pressure get larger ; As a result, it causes the feeling of discomfort. The too wide and too flat saddles will also intervene the ongoing of pedalling.
THE CENTRAL PARTS DRILLING HOLE AND CHANNEL OF BODY-ORIENTED DESIGN,
Recently, the body oriented saddles are very popular. They are said to resolve the dumbness and pain caused by long riding. Actually, it is a design which drills a hole or channel in order to elimate and distract the pressure coming from the sensitive part. A body oriented saddle of good composition and stable quality will indeed provide more wonderful riding feelings. However, we are supposed to know that not every body-oriented saddle is all ike that. If the supporting is too soft on the edge and in that case it could make the "sensitive part" trapped on it. Besides, the foam and rail are both important factores. If the quality is unstable, it will make the same models have different riding feelings.
Gel can absorb more impact than the ordinary foam does. As a result, it is used by many manufacturers on the sensitive part. Never the less, the cost, and the weight-gaining is the restriction on the application of Gel. For the effect concerns, the gel is not like the saddle which makes the obvious differences.
