The additional weight of e-bikes creates new challenges when it comes to lifting your bike onto a rack, moving it around the garage, or hoisting it over rocks and roots on unrideable sections of trail. The Devo saddle solves this problem with its patented Pickup handle, which aids in lifting or pushing an e-bike in both transport and on-trail situations while remaining completely unnoticeable to the rider while pedaling. Our new Fusion Form base technology balances overall comfort and durability by fine-tuning the fiber content and dialing in a flex profile that is best for the Devo. Medium thickness padding eliminates pressure points in the sit bone area and provides lasting comfort for long rides that go a little longer than planned. The width contour of the Devo gradually increases for the front half of the saddle before quickly widening out to create the primary area for sit bone support. This allows you to stay seated and crank hard without the insides of your thighs rubbing on the saddle edges. A wide nose allows you to scoot forward to keep the front wheel on the ground during steep climbs that are only conquerable on an e-bike.
While it may look like the hole interferes with where you sit on the saddle, we strategically placed Pickup behind the sit bone contact area to make it completely unnoticeable while pedaling. We’ve confirmed this through hundreds of hours of ride testing and pressure mapping. Pickup provides an easy way to lift, push and transport your e-bike without sacrificing any pedaling comfort in the process.
The Devo is available in a Medium (142mm) width, which is designed to best fit riders with sit bones that are 100-130mm apart. Versions of the Devo with cromoly or stainless steel rails feature our HLX padding, while the model with titanium rails features our premier DNA padding. HLX padding is plusher than our DNA padding, which makes it a great option for those who prioritize squishiness rather than weight savings. DNA is our high-performance padding that holds its shape incredibly well to provide unbeatable comfort and support on long rides while also minimizing saddle weight.
