Specialized Body Geometry Saddles
With over a decade's clinically-endorsed testing behind them, Specialized BG saddles have much to commend them. Originally developed to address reports of cyclists suffering numbness or even impotence caused by restricted blood flow between the genitals and ass (the perineum) every Specialized BG saddle has a groove/recess, to relieve pressure on this intimate area.
Body Geometry cutaway aside, Specialized BG saddles are the equal of any in their price range for their sit bone support and their quality construction.
'Designed with a little extra padding and wider surface area, this carbon-reinforced saddle excels during all-day races or long training rides.'
