A saddle engineered specifically with the mountain bike Trail rider in mind; whether you compete amongst the world’s elite Enduro racers on an International platform, or if getting lost in your local mountain range is your thing, our n.spire saddle was designed for you.
As with all of our saddles, the n.Spire will be available in 3 different sizing options: 136mm, 146mm, and 156mm. We are huge on proper fit around here, and implore you to take the time to demo and try out our saddles to be sure that you are purchasing the perfect one for your individual sizing.
The n.Spire story is a great one. This saddle was designed in Italy, then the engineering was extensively tested at Ohio State University by not only some of the university’s finest engineers, but engineers that happen to be mountain bikers! What unfolded was a saddle that we are truly proud of. We skimp at nothing so that you can truly #forgetaboutus on each and every ride you go on. And our n.spire is no exception!
An anatomically engineered saddle specifically with the off-road rider in mind; whether you compete among the world’s elite enduro racers on an international platform, if getting lost in your local mountain range is your thing, if you intend to slay your local CX series or grind out countless hours on gravel roads, our N.Spire saddle was designed for you. The N.Spire colorways allow you to find your style and match your saddle to your grips, pedals, decals, frame or even your kit. Used by Pro mountain bikers Polygon UR Team and KS-Kenda Women’s elite racer Jennifer Malik for Enduro and XC applications.
Comfort, without the cut out
N.Spire is based upon an optimal shape for comfort on long rides, while still providing a cut-out that protects riders from nerve damage. The cut-out is created by using varying layers and thicknesses of foam, strategically placed so that when they interact with soft-tissue nerve pressure is relieved. The end result, a saddle that delivers all-day comfort on the harshest of terrains.
Turns out pros from 30 years ago knew something about being comfortable. Looks great, works, let’s not overthink this.
Bio-medically designed supportive foam
Softer, but not too soft. Engineered by a real live bio-medical engineer (who just so happens to be a pro mountain bike racer) to support your important parts. Appropriate for female or male anatomy.
Firm, but not so firm you’ll regret it when you didn’t lower your dropper quite far enough, or when you slightly misjudge that cyclocross re-mount. PATPSBS for short, but we’re more into straightforward science and results, not fancy acronyms.
Full Solid Body Shell
Cut-outs introduce a lot of compromises; shell flex, too-stiff noses, fatigue issues, and undesirable pressure in some positions. We use differing firmness levels of foam to achieve better results, without any of the issues of a cut-out. Added bonus? Less wet butt on rainy or muddy days.
Available, how you want it
Wide and matchy-match for your party ride, or narrow, light and stealth for your race bike.
Riding Posture: Medium/Endurance
