SDG launches new Radar mountain saddle

SDG has launched the new Radar mountain saddle, the latest performance model by the Californian brand.

It builds on over two decades of saddle manufacturing and development, and is developed to be the “perfect saddle for everything from trail riding through to enduro shredding”.

A post on the Silverfish website said: “SDG knows that you want to be sitting comfortably and that riders want to be out ripping up the trails for longer. With this in mind and equipped with feedback from EWS racers who are seeing increasingly longer transition stages, it set about constructing a saddle with exceeded the needs to riders.

“By increasing the saddle’s edge flex at strategic points SDG was able to improve pedalling comfort and performance when riders were fully loaded with water, tools and everything else they needed for a big day in the mountains. This increased edge flex has been aided by an all new base mounding and rail fixture at the rear, offering support while still allowing for flex where needed.

“Up top, SDG has formed the top level EVA saddle foam down the centre creating a full length tip-to-tail, deep peri-canal which relieves pressure when seated, perfect for long climbs or all day trail sessions. Once the trail points downhill and riders flick their dropper levers lowering their saddle, riders will benefit from increased wheel clearance thanks to an increased cut out rear edge to stop tyre buzz even during those bike park g-outs.”
