Forma has the same structure and design as the Carbon lite model. The body in elastomerized Nylon 12 filled with carbon fiber is covered in real leather in the black versions and microfibre in the colored ones. This model is not padded, therefore Forma is particularly suited for cyclists used to pedaling on rigid seats with an average width. The Forma model has been designed for cyclists who are looking for greater seat comfort compared to that guaranteed by the narrower Composit version. The patented features by Selle SMP such as the completely free central channel, the original eagle-beak nose and the raised rear make these models additionally streamlined. "Designed on your body", the advertising slogan for the seat, defines it best.
Indicated for people with a medium-wide pelvis.
1 : Central channel : The result of extensive biomechanic studies on saddle positioning and on the structure of the gumain pelvis, it is distributed over the whole length of the saddle, from the rear to the tip. Whatever the position assumed by the cyclist, it avoids compression of the perineal structures, preventing on the on the one hand and risk of vein, artery and capillary occlusion. On the other hand, the occurence of nerve injury (among the most common being tingling and numbness).
2 : "Eagle beak'' Tip : Designed to allow the rider to adopt even extremely low positions on the handlebars that involve an increased prone rotation of the pelvis, comfortably and without crushing of the uro-genital area. The exclusive shaoe if the nose also constitutes an ideal support base for the classic ''thrust'' style of pedalling.
3 : Rear depression : Protects te coccyx from bruises and shocks caused by the roughness of the terrain.
4 : Frame length : The saddle is by far the part that most influences the cycling position. The SMP Saddle seat tube offers the widest adjustment range and allows any person to fing the perfect forward / backwardnsaddle positioning, like on a made to measure bike.
5 : Sitting position : Shared between the buttocks, the ischial tuberosities and the high branch of the ischium. Depending on your anatomical build you can chosse from different shape and padding combinations.
