Woman's Elan Sattel Power Ergo Design
Challenge the norm. SCICON presents the new ELAN Saddle, SCICON's first racing saddle and the next development in the brand’s long standing heritage and innovation in cycling.
The new SCICON Elan Saddle paves the way for a new category in the SCICON repertoire, a move made possible thanks to the in-house industry expertise across both saddle design and sports science. The goal? Produce a saddle that provides performance and comfort in both an aggressive race position and a more relaxed riding style.
The result? A performance product for cyclists in need of a lightweight saddle with no compromise on ride comfort, that is field tested and proven for both men and women. The saddle design is well suited for both road cyclists and mountain bike riders alike, thanks to innovative riding position designed with performance and comfort in mind.
Shorter, Ergonomic Design
A Power Ergo Design has been developed by the sports scientists at ASG Bike Science, experts who spend their days bike fitting the world’s best riders and athletes. This performance profile is designed for optimal pelvic rotation, and combines a central cut out to increase blood flow, with innovative Compression Control to track the saddle’s ergonomic advantages.
The saddle is built on lightweight, durable braided carbon fiber rails, holding a carbon fiber reinforced polymer shell to give a stable yet light saddle structure. Upon this, medium density shell foam incorporated in the saddle’s ergonomic design, provides ride comfort and support while maintaining its shape over time. The final product weighs in at just 199 grams in a one size fits all saddle that measures 148mm by 248mm.
“Our short nose saddle design allows for hip rotation, making it the perfect saddle for both riding disciplines, road and mountain bike.” Niklas Quetri, ASG Bike Science head scientist.
Innovation at heart
The SCICON ELAN Saddle is made possible by SCICON’s network of connections and access to advice from leading industry experts, as well as sports scientists and a network of professional athletes that keep challenging SCICON every single day to never stop innovating. Revolutionize your ride and take your ride comfort and performance to the next level.
Power Ergo Design
Slightly shorter and wider than the average racing saddle, the SCICON ELAN has a short-nose and ergonomic design with a wider seat area, following a lightly waved seat profile. Minimising the seating surface, combined with a short nose design and central cut out to remove pressure from soft tissue, the ELAN saddle allows far sufficient hip rotation as well as increased blood flow to improve ride comfort in all riding positions far long days in the saddle with an increase of muscular efficiency of the 10%.
Unidirectional Carbon Rails
The CARBON fiber reinforced polymer shell built onta two unidirectional braided CARBON fiber rails, combined with the Power Ergo Design for a comfortable yet performance ride, weighs in at just 199 grams in a one size fits all saddle measuring 148mm by 250mm.
Check periodically the compression level of padding. lf it goes below middle point the ergonomic advantages could be reduced.
