MS9 Outline 2019


A natural seating area

kinetic Seating: the Manta consists of elements (levers) mounted on a central pivot. These become narrower from the front to the rear ischial area. The elements pivot around a central spine, so the support area moves in accordance with the rider’s legs.


Manta’s unique articulated seating provides:

  • a natural seating area
  • zero pressure for the perineum and zero nerve pressure
  • perfect pressure distribution (IMAR) (PDF)
  • optimised comfort provides more enjoyment over more miles
  • exceptional cooling and ventilation
  • a revolution in bike seating
  • hand finished, shipped from Scotland
  • no pain, no damage
  • no compromise

The anatomically correct bicycle saddle


“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, comfort no longer affects my decision to keep riding”
