Designed in collaboration with Airbus, this cutting edge project delivers a world first in saddle technology.
Right from the outset, Fabric wanted to push the boundaries of saddle design to deliver a beautiful cutting-edge product that performs at the highest level. Working closely with engineers from Airbus Group Innovation and utilizing Additive Layer Manufacturing technology enabled them to create a saddle design previously considered unachievable using carbon material.
The result is an ultra-lightweight saddle with a distinctly unique, organic form.
By moving the rear mounting points of the rails to the edge of the base, the centre part of the saddle, get more flexibility. In normal circumstances this would make the outside of the saddle even more stiff and uncomfortable, but the way that the rails are designed allows them to act like a leaf spring - which dampens vibration and allows optimum flex across the whole of the ALM saddle.
