Respiro / saddle

Respiro

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

EUROBIKE AWARD 2006

In hot weather, when leaving a bike in the sun or riding for a long period of time a saddle can warm up. Rising above the rider’s skin temperature, the saddle creates an unpleasant feeling of perspiration and discomfort. Eventually this discomfort can turn into pain. Respiro, meaning breathe in Italian, avoids this by keeping the saddle 25% cooler thanks to the "Cool Microtex" and the Ventilation Channel.
