Specialized Lithia Comp Gel Women's Saddle '17

The Specialized Lithia is a lightweight sporty saddle with BG (Body Geometry) gel inserts strategically positioned to cushion the sit bones.

Specialized designed the Lithia to be a super comfortable saddle without the frumpy look of too many 'comfort saddles'.

  • The large BG cutaway down the middle of the saddle eliminates a regular saddle's area of maximum pressure on sensitive tissue
  • Light polyurethane foam padding with gel inserts cushion the sit bones
  • The Specialized Lithia Comp Gel saddle's fibre-reinforced base offers excellent support with a little 'give'
  • The Micromatrix synthetic leather cover is tough, lightweight and water-resistant
  • The saddle's hollow chromoly rails are lightweight and strong
  • The saddle is 270mm long
  • We stock this saddle in two widths, so you can chose a saddle that's wide enough to support the sit bones, and no wider
  • The 143mm wide saddle is 340g
  • The 155mm wide saddle is 343g (manufacturer's published weights)

Here's how Specialized describe their Lithia Comp Gel Women's Saddle
'Plush, comfortable and with sleek looks, the Women's Lithia Comp Gel saddle is light and soft enough for anything from longer fitness rides to casual weekend cruising. To ensure this, we gave it our plush Level 3 padding and sturdy, supportive design.'

Specialized Body Geometry Women's 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 labia can cause discomfort.

Working with sports' scientist, Roger Minkow, Specialized addressed this issue by producing their BG (Body Geometry) range of saddles. 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 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.
