MANTA™ saddle technology


Re-engineered cycle seating, the 2017 MK4-MS9

MANTA saddle MK4 MS9


The MANTA saddle is a complete redesign of bicycle seating. It was developed to provide a natural seating area, on a bike – you are probably sitting on the same area as you read this.

The design consists of a group of elements mounted on a central pivot. These “ribs” become narrower upward, from the thigh support, to the rear ischial section. The elements pivot around a central “spine”,  are moved by, and are in harmony with, a rider’s legs whilst pedalling.

The MANTA saddle’s unique articulation provides a natural seating area, optimised comfort, and the ultimate in saddle ventilation. Designed by the body, to fit the body.

“…this seat, on a fixed gear bicycle is like a perpetual motion machine. There needs to be a really good reason for me to get off the bike now, because comfort no longer affects my decision to keep riding”
