Combo – Saddle / Seat Post

edited all Ray is one of our returning clients… Clients? To be honest, he is more like our family member.

Original weight of Ray’s saddle was 95g, seat post 129g, clamping system 40g = 264g. Goals: get rid of as much weight as possible and achieve minimalistic look.

It is easy to get rid of the weight as long as you know what you’re doing and using right materials for right purpose. But to achieve required aesthetics by overcoming regular engineering solutions was a bit of a challenge. We came up with our own, new solution, which hasn’t been used before. It also led us to discovery of a new (at least for us) fibre layup system, which had to be done in different stages. This project took us longer then we’ve originally expected, but it was worth waiting. Especially when final result doesn’t just looks good but also weigh 122g less (almost 1/2 of the original weight).

More combo projects are coming at the beginning of 2015.

Ray: “Hi Ed, finally feel ok so I went for a ride today and the combo was groovy. Seat is really comfy and position feels spot on. Awesome work. Many thanks.”
