Cosine Titanium Sprint Road Bike Saddle
Cosine Ti Sprint Saddle
Comfort, support and stability for flexible, speed orientated cyclists. With lightweight titanium rails, minimal cushioning and a flat profile, the TI Sprint saddle excels on time trials, tri stages and high intensity road rides. Top Features of the COSINE TI Sprint Road Saddle Flat profile optimised for flexible cyclists Lightweight Titanium alloy rails with corrosion resistant Chromium Nitride (CrN) coating and fore/aft measurement markers Waterproof Microfibre cover Minimal high density EVA foam padding Solid nylon fibre base Shallow pressure relief channel Narrow nose reduces contact with the inner thigh Product Data Weight (g): 245 Length (mm): 280 Padding Material: High Density EVA Rail Material: Titanium Alloy with CrN (Chromium Nitride) Coating Use: Road Racing, Time Trials, Triathlon Stages Width (mm): 140 Road: Yes In Profile The profile of the TI Sprint Saddle is carefully optimised for comfort in a tucked aerodynamic position. For riders with a flexible lower back, the pelvis remains in a more level stance in the cycling posture. The flat profile is designed to support weight though the sit bones in this position. A shallow pressure relief channel helps distribute weight away from the softer tissue. The 140mm width has been tailored to accommodate the spacing of the sit bones with sufficient area to distribute pressure and offer comfort and stability. The shape quickly graduates to a narrow 40mm nose to eliminate interference with the inner thigh during the pedal stroke. Beneath the waterproof microfibre cover is a layer of high density EVA foam padding. This works in combination with the solid nylon fibre base to provide a firm, minimally cushioned platform with a small degree of flex. 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 Sprint 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 pedalling stance.
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!
