Selle Royal’s first reflective saddle hits the market
Selle Royal has launched its first reflective saddle, the Vivo Reflective Athletic. Created with the urban rider in mind, the saddle is designed for added safety as it adds to visibility of the cyclist whilst on the road.
The new saddle increases visibility of the rider through a reflective film sealed on the rear of the saddle. In daylight the film is subtle in colour, but in darkness it uses light from headlamps of cars, bicycles and other vehicles to make the user’s presence known.
The saddle itself is made from a foam matrix structure that increases the elasticity and breathability of the saddle for the best possible durability and comfort. The Vivo Reflective Athletic also features a channel down the centre to help relieve pressure in the pubic area for both men and women, and also added an embossed surface on the saddle where the ischial bones come into contact with it to enhance grip when riding.
“Peace of mind for riders”
The modern and aerodynamic look of the saddle was created through Selle Royal’s Havac production system. This fuses vacuum technology with the lightness of handmade technology for a clean look, whilst helping to increase the water resistance of the saddle to protect against splashes and rain.
Michele Manca, Product Manager at Selle Royal said “The Vivo Reflective Athletic gives that extra peace of mind that riders need when cycling on busy streets. We hope this new saddle will encourage those who have started to enjoy the benefits of a cycling lifestyle this year – whether that’s for fun, fitness or just getting around town – to stay on their bikes as the summer draws to a close.”
