Specialized’s Body Geometry design has a more prominent central channel than most – the rearmost two thirds are almost split in half, with just a small bridge across the back to hold it all together.
The kicked-up tail and dropped nose make it look like a swoopy saddle, but it offers the freedom of movement of a flat one. It’s rounded in cross-section, offering a great blend of support and unobtrusiveness.
Carbon fibre rails and thin padding contribute to a very low weight. Uniquely, the Romin is available in four widths (130, 143, 155 and 168mm), one of which should suit nearly everyone.
