Saddle Up Air / Bicycle saddle

Saddle Up Air
Saddle Up Air

'Saddle up' means to get on a horse put a saddle. Riding a bicycle for a long time, we feel pain on hips. To resolve this inconvenience, the posture of horse riding is applied here. When one saddles a horse, the waist and pelvis move rhythmically; however, when one rides a bicycle, the saddle of the bike is fixed, increasing pressure on body. Therefore, the saddle on the seat tube slides front and rear, and up and down. It makes bike riding, exercise of lower part of the body, to be exercise of the whole body, moving the arm, waist, and pelvis all at the same time. Air-system equipped in the soft pad of the saddle provides comfortable riding.
