Cobb V-Flow Saddle
In high performance road bikes or triathlon bikes, there is a large difference in seating positions when compared to recreational bikes. In the case of a triathlon bike, the rider is rotated much more forward, riding on a completely different part of the pelvic area. The V-Flow range of seats is designed for this type of performance riding. The narrow rear section is especially great at relieving pressure from the hamstring muscle and the upper adductors. These pressure points are two of the leading causes of leg cramps and lower back pain. By analyzing the pressure points and listening to rider input, Cobb came up with a saddle that greatly increases rider comfort. Men need room for their upper legs to be able to swing further back on the saddle, especially while riding on aero bars or on the drops. Seats that have a wide rear area force the rider to move forward on the narrow nose of the seat, which is uncomfortable and leads to high perineal nerve bundle area stress. Cobb's testing showed that the proper seat shape and width offer the support and comfort needed for high mileage, comfortable cycling. Another area that promotes better rider comfort is the exclusive "V" notch in the rear of the seat cut out area. This functions as an air scoop, bringing moisture relief to the center seating area.
