Specialized Romin Evo Expert Gel Saddle '16
With its carbon shell and titanium rails the Romin Evo Expert Gel Saddle is a performance-oriented Specialized Body Geometry saddle, optimised for road bikes.
Its wide flat nose facilitates 'riding on the rivet' on sprints. The nose drops down at the front to help prevent it hooking up your shorts as you manoeuvre on and off the saddle. Its wide Body Geometry cutaway channel helps prevent perineal nerve and artery compression that can cut blood flow and cause numbness.
- Stiff, reliable carbon-reinforced shell for all-day riding efficiency.
- Lightweight and supportive PU foam with gel inserts for increased comfort on long rides.
- The hollow titanium rails are lightweight and durable.
- The Micromatrix synthetic leather saddle is tough, lightweight and water resistant.
- Available in 3 sizes to correspond with the distance between your sit bones.
- 26cm long (one cm shorter than previous versions).
- 270g - based upon weighing a 155mm-wide Specialized Romin Evo Expert Gel Saddle at Bike Co-op HQ in October 2015.
Specialized Body Geometry Saddles
Specialized BG (Body Geometry) saddles have been the world's best sellers since their introduction in the late 1990s. And probably deservedly so. When you sit on a conventional bicycle saddle, pressure on the perineum compresses sensitive penile nerves and arteries. This can reduces blood flow by as much as 75% according to clinical studies conducted at the University of Cologne. Pressure on the perineum can cause saddle-induced numbness, soreness, and in the worst cases, temporary impotence. Bicycle saddles are a serious business, guys.
Working with sports' scientist, Roger Minkow, Specialized addressed these issues by developing their BG (Body Geometry) saddle range. BG saddles come in a comprehensive range of styles to suit every budget and every style of riding. The one factor that defines Body Geometry is the fact that every BG saddle has a cutaway channel in the middle, which Specialized call the V-groove AKA The Minkow Wedge. Having nothing there reduces perineal pressure to such a degree, the University of Cologne studies concluded that riding on a Body Geometry saddle was as safe and benign as sitting on a padded armchair.
