Elegant, slight curves accentuate this inviting shape that redefines what comfort is capable of at such a low weight.
From where the pavement ends, to B-road pursuits and cyclocross run ups, our SL8 saddle provides irrefutable comfort in a minimalist, svelte package.
Bike saddles are very personal objects. Ask several cyclists of their favorite models and you will receive very different responses—even if the riders are similar in size and skill level. In the next few pages you’ll find a range of seats designed for varying physiques, riding styles and shape preferences. With over 30 thoroughly-researched, rider-tested models, WTB offers the ideal perch for everyone from world champion racers to their grandmothers. No matter what your age, gender or ability level, we’re guessing that you’re not a fan of numbness or pain in your nether regions. Because we care about your comfort, you’ll find several key anatomically-friendly features that span the entire WTB saddle line. These proprietary designs place more support on your ischial bones (“sit bones”) and less weight on sensitive soft tissue. As a rule, WTB saddles are flatter in profile than others. Our profile supports your sit bones and relieves pressure from sensitive areas, whereas rounder saddles pull the pelvic girdle apart, placing pressure where you don’t want it.
Saddle Technology Defined
Love Channel - Found on all WTB saddles, the Love Channel has one very important task: protecting your body from unwanted pressure. The central depression provides soft-tissue relief without sacrificing the structural integrity of the saddle.
Comfort Zone - Featured on all WTB saddles, these small windows are cut away from the base of the saddle to provide additional relief from pressure on sensitive areas. Comfort Zone is a subtle difference that provides impressive long term comfort
DNA Padding - Found on all of our high-end saddles, this dense padding dramatically reduces the weight of the saddle. DNA padding also tends to hold its shape better over long rides and the lifetime of the saddle, which is important for long-term comfort.
Standard Padding - Single density foam found on our Comp and Race level saddles. This foam is soft to the touch and is a great option for anyone experiencing sore contact points on their saddle.
Soft Shell - WTB’s shock-absorbing, dual-compound saddle base. Soft-Shell saddles minimize trail vibration while providing a rigid platform for efficient pedaling.
Flex Tuned Shell - The Flex-Tuned shell boasts an exceptional mix of comfortable flex and firm efficiency. Not as supple as the Soft-Shell and not as stiff as the Carbon Composite, Flex-Tuned saddles provide the happy medium that is ideal for most enthusiasts.
Nylon/Carbon Composite Shell - The WTB Composite shell consists of nylon or carbon fiber composite. It provides a firm and supportive feel for unparalleled performance and efficiency. This base is found on our top-level Silverado, SL8, Hightail, and Deva saddles.
ABR Corners - These durable patches of material protect the corners and sides of the saddle from rips and tears.
Narrow, tapered nose and midsection minimizes chafing during longer pedaling sessions.
Short overall length for seamless on-off transitions.
Thin, lightweight padding keeps the overall weight down.
