Saddles

Bike saddles are very personal objects.  Ask several cyclists of their favorite models and you will receive very different responses—even if the riders are similar in size and skill level. In the next few pages you’ll find a range of seats designed for varying physiques, riding styles and shape preferences.  With over 30 thoroughly-researched, rider-tested models, WTB offers the ideal perch for everyone from world champion racers to their grandmothers.  No matter what your age, gender or ability level, we’re guessing that you’re not a fan of numbness or pain in your nether regions.  Because we care about your comfort, you’ll find several key anatomically-friendly features that span the entire WTB saddle line.  These proprietary designs place more support on your ischial bones (“sit bones”) and less weight on sensitive soft tissue.  As a rule, WTB saddles are flatter in profile than others.  Our profile supports your sit bones and relieves pressure from sensitive areas, whereas rounder saddles pull the pelvic girdle apart, placing pressure where you don’t want it.

 

SADDLE TECHNOLOGY DEFINED

LOVE CHANNEL®

Found on all WTB saddles, the Love Channel has one very important task: protecting your body from unwanted pressure.  The central depression provides soft-tissue relief without sacrificing the structural integrity of the saddle.

COMFORT ZONE®

Featured exclusively on high-end WTB saddles, these small windows are cut away from the base of the saddle to provide additional relief from pressure on sensitive areas.  Comfort Zone is a subtle difference that provides impressive long-term comfort.

LUXZONE

This comfort-enhancing window is featured exclusively on the Valcon saddle.  Similar to our proprietary Comfort Zone soft tissue relief area, Lux Zone reduces pressure on sensitive soft tissue.

DNA PADDING

Found on all of our high-end models, this dense padding dramatically reduces the weight of the saddle.  DNA padding also features superior memory properties, which conforms to your individual anatomy.

SOFT-SHELL

WTB’s shock-absorbing, dual-compound saddle base.  Soft-Shell saddles minimize trail vibration while providing a rigid platform for efficient pedaling.

FLEX-TUNED SHELL

The Flex-Tuned shell boasts an exceptional mix of comfortable flex and firm efficiency. Not as supple as the Soft-Shell and not as stiff as the Carbon Composite, Flex-Tuned saddles provide the happy medium that is ideal for most enthusiasts.

NYLON / CARBON COMPOSITE SHELL

The WTB Composite shell consists of nylon or carbon fiber composite. It provides a firm and supportive feel for unparalleled performance and efficiency.  This base is found on our top-level Silverado, Valcon, Devo, and Deva, .

ABR CORNERS

These durable patches of material protect the corners and sides of the saddle from rips and tears.

TITANIUM RAILS

Titanium rails offer an unparalleled strength-to-weight ratio as well as superior vibration damping characteristics.

NICRO TUBULAR RAILS

NiCro is a hollow alloy rail material that is close to as light as titanium, but available at a more economical cost. 

CARBON RAILS

Carbon rails offer the lightest weight option with extraordinary shock absorbing characteristics.  Found on our top shelf Valcon and Silverado saddles.
