• Selle Anatomica Saddles Are Now Available at Everyday Cycles!

July 17, 2019 0 Comments

I've been riding Selle Anatomica saddles for just about as long as the company has been around! With a Wisconsin backstory, and the leather still tanned in Milwaukee, these saddles really fulfill the "made-in-our-backyard" credo we go for here at Everyday Cycles.

I just mounted up an X2 series saddle with the new modular frame system on my Chumba Ursa Major fatbike. Some of the interesting features of the new design are:

  • Independent Flex-Fly movement that allows the leather shell flex at 3 different pivot points on the frame 
  • Next Gen modular frame now has tubular stainless steel sails and includes Chicago Screws to make changing the leather out easier than ever.
  • Plus, the new frame contributes to the lighter weight of 420 grams vs the traditional Series 1 Chromoly framed H1 that weighs in at 515 grams.
  • All Selle Anatomica saddles are handmade in the USA in San Diego, CA.

The X2 is designed for riders from 120 - 190 lbs while the H Series is recommended for riders over 190 lbs.

I'll keep you posted on the new X2 down the trail!

Meanwhile, Tony has also been using Selle Anatomica saddles since they first became available. He has this to say about his experiences:

I first saw a Selle Anatomica while I was on the campus of UW Milwaukee. It was bright yellow and didn’t really look like most saddles so I had to ask the guy about it. He said it was the single best saddle he’d ever ridden and has thousands of miles on it. While my first custom bike was being assembled I noticed a Selle Anatomica on the shelf and decided to give it a try. I was totally hooked! The saddle felt great from day one. NO break in period, I threw a leg over and never looked back. I now have 3 that I can swap between my bikes with matching seat post diameters. I don’t believe I’ll ever purchase anything else. Well worth the investment!
