Selle Royal, along with researchers from the Sport University of Cologne, the largest sports university in Europe, have applied theory, data and methods to bicycle saddle research in an attempt to unmask the fundamental design characteristics to optimizing well-being and overall cycling performance. Using hundreds of volunteers, the researchers developed rigorous methods for quantifying the classic considerations of saddle design: gender differences, saddle shape and the role played by ischial distance. The result is Scientia, a full spectrum of nine ergonomic saddles scientifically engineered to precisely and comprehensively fit each rider.
