ergotec FUTURA / Adjustable seat post

ergotec FUTURA

EUROBIKE AWARD 2013

ergotec FUTURA

EUROBIKE AWARD 2013

On a bike the wrong seat position means wasted energy. Positioning the saddle in an optimum way in relation to the pedals makes the cycling action more economical and ensures freedom from physical problems in the long-term. Many bicycle frames are not ideally adapted to the body of the cyclist in terms of size, and conventional seat posts are not able to achieve the necessary adjustments in an optimum way. The frequent result is problems with the knees and muscles. The solution to this problem is provided by ergotec. Within a semi-circle of 50 mm the saddle can be fixed in whatever position is required, giving it a unique adjustment range.
