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 nerves and arteries. This can reduces blood flow by as much as 75% according to clinical studies conducted at the University of Cologne, which concluded that pressure on the perineum was the most common cause of saddle-induced numbness and pain.

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 section 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.

Any saddle purchased from any of our shops is covered by our no-quibble comfort guarantee. That is, if it fails to make you more comfortable, return it to the shop within a month of purchase, and we'll replace it with an alternative saddle (or a gift voucher) to the same value.
