I'm a bike enthusiast, a composite engineer and a local rider. I have teamed with a another local rider who is a product development engineer to design and manufacture an all carbon saddle right here in St. Louis. We intend to offer 3 different variations for three specific weight segments. Each variation will have a different degree of flex depending on the riders preference. This will allow riders of all weights to select a saddle according to their specific desired flex.
Our intent is to manufacture an all carbon saddle around 100g for a reasonable price and do so right here in St. Louis. We were hoping experienced riders such as yourselves could provide us with feedback and complete the survey (link below)
Attached is picture of the preliminary design and brochure outlining all the characteristics of our saddle. We would appreciate it if you could take 2-3 minutes to review the brochure and complete the 10 question survey. The is will provide us with valuable feedback and help shape the final design going forward
We would greatly appreciate any additional feedback you may have and forwarding the link with documents to anyone else who you may think could provide additional comments.
Please let us know if anyone is interested in test riding one of our prototypes in the coming weeks, it always helps to test and feel the real thing. We may try and set up a demo day in the early spring.
Thanks for all your support.
