Designed on your body
“Top” design seat and a 100% carbon structure. Winner of the Product Design Award 2006.
The Full Carbon model is the top of the SMP range and it is intended for cyclists looking for the lightest weight possible. The patented features by Selle SMP, such as the completely free central channel, the original eagle-beak nose and the raised rear give these models an interesting aerodynamic touch.
Suited for thin people with narrow pelvises.
Surveys conducted by various universities in the United States, in Norway and in Austria have shown that the squashing of pelvic organs and pudenda arteries may have serious consequences on the genital apparatus of athletes and amateurs. The Patent SMP arises from the study of the different p ositions assumed by the racer in the various phases of the course and by the consequent interaction between the saddle, pe lvic organs and genitals – male and female – with an aim to preventing their getting squashed and rubbed, and at the same time increase the blood flow to the leg muscles. The central channel of the saddle, 3 to 5 cm wide, prevents the anus, the prostate, the pudenda veins the deep dorsal vein and artery of the penis, scrotum and testicles, and the labia majora and minora, and clitoris, not to be squashed at all, allowing a continuous and completely natural blood. In the SMP saddle the cyclist’s sitting position is spread out between the buttocks and the lower part of the bone of the pelvis (the ischiatic tuberosities).
The front part, characterised by the original eagle’s beak shape avoids the genitals from being squashed and offers a good supporting base in the characteristic thrust pedalling.
In the lower part of the saddle there is a concavity that prevents the coccyx from touching the saddle, thus avoiding the counterblow caused by uneven ground.
The line of union between the front and rear part follows the shape of the thigh muscles in order to always have the maximum circulation of blood for greater pedalling power and the reduction of bothersome tingling.
