Fast & Furious Friday - SADDLES


Today we are going to discuss saddles.  There are many different saddles out there on the market and Tom's stocks a large variety for you to chose from.  Just like bikes there is not one saddle out there that is perfect for anyone (well I should clarify that the snowbike is perfect for everyone but they have different sizes so that doesn't count now does it?)

First up is the Fi'zi:k Aliante Gamma - this is a high end saddle that provides extreme comfort to the bicyclist.

Finally we are going to cover two Terry Saddles: Men's FLX Carbon Saddle and Women's FLX Carbon Saddle.

The FLX Carbon saddle presents the latest evolution of comfort technology at the high end: shell flexibility. It's the ideal choice for elite riders looking for minimal weight and padding. A complete cutaway front to back is the key to comfort and flexibility. Carbon rails: 9.6mm high x 7mm wide. Slimmest profile of any Terry men's or women's saddle with a seamless leather cover. Made in Italy
