Bontrager are pushing hard in the saddle market, investing in all sorts of pressure-mapping and 3D motion capture tech to help with design. The Evoke is the mountain bike-orientated result, and it’s packed with trail-friendly features.


The squared-off corners and flat, well-padded nose all work well, giving plenty of weight shift options with easy transitions between them. A hollow on the mid-section relieves pressure on your parts, although some may favour a deeper channel. 

The Evoke is more swoopy in profile and flat in cross-section than some. It can be bought in three widths (as well as a women’s version). Your Bontrager dealer can measure your behind (you just have to sit on a pad) and tell you which you need.
