Product Details

Specialized Toupé Sport Saddle

The Specialized Toupé Sport Saddle is the same fundamental shape and boasts the same Body Geometry cutaway channel as the Specialized Toupé Pro saddle - Cycling Weekly magazine's best buy in £100 saddles.

  • The Specialized Toupé Sport is vacuum-formed to create a durable, waterproof saddle.
  • Patented Body Geometry design - lab tested to assure blood flow to sensitive arteries.
  • The Specialized Toupé Sport is padded for comfort, but not too much so it doesn't compromise the saddle's efficiency.
  • Light and super-durable steel rails.
  • Sizes: 270 x 143mm or 270 x 155mm
  • 315g - based upon weighing a 143mm wide Specialized Toupé Sport Saddle at Bike Co-op HQ in September 2014.

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.

'This waterproof saddle is supportive and plush for all-day fitness rides, casual spins or commuting.'
