The Delta time, the time difference between a racer' fastest lap and the current lap. The Delta saddle was designed to help riders gain edge needed to always be pushing for their PR or fastest lap. The Delta is the saddle made for those who prefer an aggressive riding style on rough roads/gravel or even the Time Trial bike. It is for those who pedal in a the long and low position, but need just a bit more padding than your typical race saddle. It is one of the shortest saddles we make at 247mm in length, which means it is made for those who love riding in a locked-in position. It has 16mm of PU padding, which dampens the roughness of the gravel roads.
Medium Platform, Flat Profile
The medium platform (145mm wide) and flat profile of the saddle gives the rider the perfect perch for maximum stability while putting down huge efforts. The Delta is the evolution of the Apex and Explorer series. It takes the classic flat profile of the Apex and pairs it with the extra padding of the Delta that allows rider to move into the power position even on rough surfaces.
It is at Smanie’s core to always be pushing the limits as to what we can do to make our saddles more environmentally friendly. We start by producing all of our products from recycled materials. That includes our covers, foam, bases, rails, and even our packaging.
Modern Short Racing Shape with a Cutout
The use extra padding means that the Delta is ideal for long days in the saddle on rough surfaces. The Delta features a short-nose that is designed to keep the rider in the sweet spot and eliminates the need to shift positions on the saddle. While the curved side profile of the saddle creates a clear area for the sit-bones to rest and features a cutout for improved blood flow and reduction of numbness while in a forward or aggressive race position.
