More Comfort with Selle Royal

According to a survey of over 300 gynaecologists and urologists, on average more than 75% of their patients experience pain or feelings of numbness in their nether regions when riding. Selle Royal claims to have successfully addressed this problem and offers the solution with its Ergogel saddles.

In a test run especially for Selle Royal among the German and Dutch medical specialists participating in this survey, more than 75% of the doctors declared that they did not have any symptoms of pain when using Ergogel saddles. 72% of the doctors stated that Ergogel saddles are more comfortable than any other saddle.

93% stated clearly that they would have no problem to recommend this saddle to any of their patients to help resolve problems. Selle Royal worked with the support of Prof. Baeyens from the University of Brussels to create saddles that are adjusted anatomically to male and female physiques.

Ergogel men’s saddles feature a 35 millimetre wide central depression, which relieves the pressure from the prostate and reduces the compression of pudendal arteries and nerves, optimizing the blood flow to the penis and eliminating feelings of numbness. Ergogel women’s saddles feature a narrower depression, which avoids the compression of the tissue at the centre of the saddle. ErgogelT saddles have all been individually designed to maximize ergonomic relief.

Lookin Cover Keept Saddle Cool

The 2010 Lookin saddles range combines two comfort features: the new and innovative cool cover, which keeps the saddle cover up to 25°C cooler in the sun, and Royalgel. Laboratory tests proved the Lookin cool cover can keep the saddle’s temperature as much as 25°C lower, reducing the unpleasant feeling of sitting on a hot surface. Royalgel is claimed to reduce pressure on the prostate / pubis, and sit bone areas by up to 40%. Royalgel does not age, harden or migrate. Lookin saddles are available for men and women in sport, athletic, moderate, and relaxed versions.

Ventilation Channel Cools Respiro

Respiro is Selle Royal’s top-line saddle, dedicated to the more demanding cyclist. These saddles have been specifically designed to help cyclists enjoy longer rides. It features an innovative cool cover and a ventilation channel which also relieves pressure on crotch, while reducing sweating. The cool cover keeps the saddle cover up to 25°C cooler in the sun.

When riding for a long period of time or leaving your saddle in the sun, a saddle can start to dramatically increase in temperature. Rising above the rider’s skin temperature, the saddle creates an unpleasant feeling of perspiration and discomfort. Eventually this discomfort can cause pain. Respiro avoids this by keeping the saddle cooler thanks to the cool microtex cover and the ventilation channel. Available for man and woman in sport, athletic, moderate and relaxed version.
