The Avant uses a slightly shorter, wider body with comfortable padding guaranteeing maximum comfort. It is covered in real leather with Selle SMP completely free central channel. It is an excellent saddle for all those who want comfort.
The Avant features Selle SMP such as the completely free central channel, the original eagle-beak nose and the raised rear make this model additionally streamlined.
SMP's fundamental objective: "To reduce pressure on the perineum and the consequent pressing of neuro-vascular structures in order to decrease the incidence of genitourinary problems and disorders in cyclists". To pursue this objective they set further goals: their saddles must have an innovative design and top quality. Research and development activities led to defining exclusive patents with regard to shape, curvature and the dimensions of the various parts that make up the saddle:
The nose of the saddle (Beak): The characteristic "beak" shape has been designed to provide a flat base for efforts when sitting, for example when facing long uphill climbs and as help in descents, offering greater bike control using the thighs. Furthermore, the most important thing is that the "sensitive areas" are not pressed upward.
The central channel: The central channel's unusual dimensions permits the "sensitive areas" of the human body not undergo any pressure.
Cyclist's sitting position: Body weight is divided between the rear and the lower part of the ischial tuberosities. The position is helped by the rear profile shaped of the saddle in such a way to avoid pressure on the coccyx when riding on rough roads.
The length of the bars/frame: It permits any cyclist to find the correct position on the saddle, making installation particularly simple and efficacious on practically any frame/seat post combination.
Selle SMP was founded in 1947 and is therefore one of the world pioneers in the field.
Active in over 50 countries, it is one of the main producers primary equipment saddles. With the patent SMP4BIKE today enters the world of competition cycling as a protagonist.
The SMP saddle is the pioneer in a new way of conceiving the bicycle saddle: a meticulous study of the positions taken on during the race and the functional analysis of the interactions of the various parts of the body with the saddle.
