''


Saddle represents the most intimate connection between the cyclist and its bike. The latest generation of Syncros saddles offers every rider the maximum performance and comfort. The new range is the result of countless months of researches and development : a unique mix of design, science and testing.


SCIENCE & DEVELOPMENT


SCIENCE & DEVELOPMENTErgonomics is a true science and at Syncros, engineers learnt it for a while; the saddle development process uses a new custom pressure mapping solution with an extremely high sensor resolution. 

 

This equipment allows gathering quantitative data about the interaction between the rider and the saddle, keeping in consideration the weight, the bone structure and the soft tissues of the cyclist.

 

The sensor helps identify if any areas on the saddle cause “hot spots” of high pressure. This equipment allows engineers to run controlled studies allowing a dynamic analysis of the pressure distribution on the saddle.

 

FITTING


Saddles are part of the 3 points of connection between the rider and its bike with the pedals and the grips. Otherwise, the saddle is the one which support the main weight of the rider; it has to be the most fitted one to avoid transforming any ride into a disaster source of pain.

The philosophy behind Syncros saddles is the result of countless testing hours, pressure mapping sessions, mechanical and biomechanical engineering designs.

 

POSITION ON THE BIKE


The posture of the rider determines which portion of the pelvis is in contact with the saddle. The shape of the saddle must properly support the skeletal structure while relieving pressure on the soft tissues of the rider in that posture.

POSITION ON THE BIKE

Our studies have shown that a central channel offers the same ergonomic advantages as a cut-out design. The channel provides more support for your ischial bones, and redirects weight off of sensitive tissue.

 

CONSTRUCTION


All Syncros saddles share the same production features. Made of three distinctive parts: cover/padding, shell and rails. This new manufacturing process removes any stiches, seams or extra material. Resulting in a really clean and good looking product.

SADDLES CONSTRUCTION

 

1. SYNCROS SADDLES USE A MICROFABRIC COVER VACUUM-BONDED TO THE RIGHT AMONT OF PU PADDING RESULTING IN A MORE DURABLE AND WATERPROOF SEAT.

2. SYNCROS SADDLES’ SHELL IS BUILT WITH 2 OPTIONS OF MATERIAL.

3. SYNCROS SADDLES LINE-UP FEATURES 3 DIFFERENT RAILS MATERIAL OPTIONS.

The new manufacturing process allows a cleaner finish without any extra the bulk and make it easier to clean.A light weight carbon reinforced with nylon shell is used on the topnotch 1.0 and 1.5 lines. It features a substantial flexibility characteristic to reduce vibrations.

Our topnotch 1.0 line uses a solid and 7x9mm oval carbon version.

We trust for our middle level model into the titanium rails which provides durability and resistance against abrasion. Our entry level features CrMo rails with anti-corrosive coating.
