Grippy downhill saddle

BikeRadar score3/5Find prices on Bicycle Blue Book

The Ti-Fly Storm saddle from SDG comes equipped with titanium alloy rails as well as the Sam Hill inspired micro injected rubber logos that sit 2.5mm up off the saddle surface. 

These buds are designed to create extra grip when the mud is caking the saddle and it starts to get slippy and are not as uncomfortable to sit on as you might imagine (although this isn’t the sort of perch we’d use for epic all-day rides). The rubber logos do what they’re designed to, and do it well.

This new railed version does offer more flex over the stiff I-Beam version in return for a claimed 20g weight penalty – but we think that’s a small price to pay for added comfort.
