The profile is optimized to pair with the taller front ends of sportive, touring and gravel/adventure bikes. These offer more relaxed cycling posture in which the lower back follows a more gentle curve as you reach the handlebars. In this posture the pelvis may tilt forward slightly. The angle between the spine and the legs also becomes more obtuse. As the pelvis tilts forward, more pressure is likely to be applied to the tissue in front of the sit bones. The Ti Endurance saddle features a channel in the padding layer and a cut-out in the base. These alleviate pressure and distribute weight towards the sit bones for a more sustainable and comfortable experience. The 145mm width has been tailored to accommodate the spacing of the sit bones with sufficient area to distribute pressure and offer comfort and stability. The wings of the saddle are curved to accommodate the inner thigh during the pedal stroke, and to offer support in the corners. Worth the weight. Weight is an important factor when choosing components for your bike; it affects how your bike feels, how it handles and its inertia. The COSINE TI Endurance saddle features Titanium alloy rails coated with Chromium Nitride (CrN). These offer exceptional tensile strength, stiffness and corrosion resistance at an extremely low weight. The reduced weight helps you conserve energy as you climb and accelerate, and ultimately saves crucial seconds on your time. Crn/Ti Titanium rails are also highly resistant to flexing and deforming. This makes them far less likely to bend or creak as you ride. COSINE seat rails also feature measurement markers. These help you adjust the fore/aft position of your saddle accurately to achieve an efficient and ergonomic pedaling motion.
Latest saddle deals
I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
