WFSGI Installs Bicycle Saddle Committee
LAUSANNE, Switzerland – After a UCI request to provide scientific information on the development of bicycle saddles from a performance and a medical perspective the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI) put in a dedicated committee.
Dave Schindler and Piet van der Velde have been elected as chairpersons of the WFSGI Bicycle Saddle Committee. “We are very happy that two experts in the development of bicycle saddles joined this group in leading positions,” states the WFSGI in a press release.
Chairman of the committee Dave Schindler from ISM Saddles will represent the committee. Piet van der Velde from Selle Italia was elected as vice-chairman of the committee to support Dave with his profound knowledge and broad experience in the bicycle industry.
The WFSGI is now ready to renew the regulations for bicycle saddles in close collaboration with the UCI. The Saddle Committee currently has seven WFSGI member companies who are all involved in bicycle saddle manufacturing.
