The MANTA Saddle
- Ride as far as you like without a saddle imprint
- Kinetic support, encourages 360° pedalling
- Adaptive Ray Tech™ equals a fluid riding experience
- A naturally comfortable support when pedalling
Cool & Dry & Comfortable
No other design offers MANTA levels of support.
Traditional saddles rely on a seat ‘nose’ to support a proportion of the riders weight, any pressure there is too much pressure, they have not changed since the 1800’s, 99% are still basically the same.
With advances in medical technology we have a greater understanding of how we are affected over time, or even by one big bump. With cycling increasing in popularity as a carbon-neutral, or a convenient ultra-low impact e-bike method of transport, for leisure, and exercise, much research has been conducted on the effects of cycling on riders, with a focus on the saddle as the weakest link in an otherwise healthful and joyful activity.
Numerous studies link the use of traditional saddles with even long-term damage to areas involving the perineum, which were not evolved to take a human’s bodyweight – up to 7x that bodyweight – riding over potholes, kerbs, speed bumps…
Riders are beginning to be more open with the problems caused by saddles, and much more aware of the health risks that have existed for too long with traditional saddles – carbon fibre cutouts, insets, and 3D printed seats are much the same as ever, under shiny details.

Seat comfort and performance go hand-in-hand
The MANTA saddle consists of an adaptive surface: “Adaptive Ray Technology” – in action comparable to the wings of a manta ray – a dynamic surface in harmony with the rider.
Multiplying the supported area, alleviating high pressure points, and providing an increase in groin blood flow unique to cycling, this provides beneficial side effects on, and off the bike, you won’t know you’ve been on a bike.
These are the effects of more than just a reduced decrease in flow in comparison to others (as claimed by many designs) we provide a measurable, and significant increase in blood flow, such as found in sports other than cycling.
