«A saddle with a too wide "delta" area causes some tightness in the inner thigh area, where we can find the femoral biceps and the other hamstring muscles - explains Alessandro Mottola -. If these muscles do not have enough space to move freely, some residual tension may be felt even after the end of the athletic performance. The cyclist unconsciously tries to adapt himself by moving forward, looking for points to relieve the stress caused in this area. Moving forward implies the alteration of all the biomechanical data detected in the tests. The thigh-bone won't work in optimal conditions, fact that will have an impact on efficiency. Major pressures could end up being applied to the knee joint, which could eventually cause localised pain and also a considerable loss of strength».
«Together with Selle Repente - affirms Mottola - we have worked around these issues creating a large seat with a suitable support surface, larger than traditional models (for a more powerful thrust uphill), while reducing the internal “delta” area, for a freerer legs movement. Efficiency is improved thanks to a more natural pedaling motion and increased number of pedal strokes per minute; the result is a more intense feeling of comfort and well-being».
