From Idea to Success - the History of Selle Royal

Selle Royal was founded in Italy in 1956 with the vision of developing bicycle saddles that improve the comfort and performance of cyclists. Today, Selle Royal's saddles for men and women are characterized by quality, innovation and functional designs. The Italians place particular emphasis on ergonomic design and state-of-the-art technologies. The saddles are the result of decades of research and development. The majority of Selle Royal saddles use the tried and tested Royalgel™ gel padding, which absorbs pressure and distributes it over the entire saddle surface - so that you can benefit from maximum comfort and support even on your longest rides.

Your Riding Position Determines the Right Selle Royal Saddle for Men and Women

The right bike saddle is crucial for comfort, riding pleasure and performance. Selle Royal follows the “Riding Position Concept”, according to which the most important factor is not, as is often assumed, specific characteristics of the male or female anatomy, but rather the riding position and the way in which the ischial tuberosities rest on the saddle. Selle Royal defines three different seating positions for its own saddle portfolio, which indicate the degree of flexion between the upper body and the handlebars and mainly depend on the geometry and type of your bike:

  • Athletic: This position is adopted by sporty cyclists who prefer a stretched riding position, for example on a road bike or more sporty bikes. The angle of the upper body is around 45 degrees. A narrow saddle that offers little padding but allows maximum freedom of movement is ideal for this position.
  • Moderate: Here you sit slightly more upright, with an upper body angle of around 60 degrees, as on trekking bikes. Saddles with a medium width and good padding that combine comfort and efficiency are suitable for this position.
  • Relaxed: In this position, you sit almost upright with an angle of around 90 degrees - just like on Dutch bikes or CIty bikes. Here, wide, heavily padded saddles offer optimum comfort and support your pelvis perfectly.

To help you recognize at first glance which Selle Royal saddle is suitable for your needs, the saddles are marked with the seat position designations.

The Ischial Distance Determines the Ideal Width

Contrary to what many people think, it is not gender, but the distance between your sit bones, i.e. the bones in the pelvic area that support your weight, that is decisive for the choice of saddle. The following applies: the further your upper body is tilted forward, the smaller the contact surface of your pelvis to the saddle and the smaller the contact surface can be. In contrast, an upright posture requires a wider seat in order to provide the best possible support for the anatomical structures.

For optimum comfort, it is therefore important to support these contact points, as this is where most of the pressure is generated. Only in very sporty riding positions can the pressure be transferred to the soft tissue and lead to pain or discomfort in the perineal area. However, with an angle between 45 and 90 degrees, gender and anatomical differences are irrelevant. For this reason, Selle Royal offers unisex saddles in various widths to meet different anatomical needs.

Selle Royal Urban Saddles - Perfect for the City

Whether e-bike, city bike or Dutch bike - with the comfortable Urban saddles from Selle Royal you are well equipped for daily commuting in the city. They offer a wide seat surface and soft gel or foam padding for maximum comfort. These saddles are ideal for short to medium-long distances, such as commuting to work or shopping. Thanks to their ergonomic shape, the pressure is distributed evenly.

Selle Royal Trekking Saddles - For Those Long Tours

The trekking saddles from Selle Royal are designed for long tours and offer a balanced combination of comfort and support. The shock-absorbing properties of these saddles reduce pressure in particularly sensitive areas, which is particularly beneficial on uneven routes. In addition, many trekking saddles are equipped with breathable materials that ensure good ventilation and therefore provide a comfortable seating climate even on intensive rides.
