A natural seating area

kinetic Seating: The Manta consists of a group of elements (levers) mounted on a central pivot. These become narrower from the front to the rear ischial area. Elements pivot around a central spine. The support area moves in harmony with a 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 for more miles
  • exceptional cooling and ventilation
  • pretty amazing looking
  • a revolution in bike seating
  • hand finished assembled and shipped from Manta in Scotland
  • no pain, or damage to soft body parts

The only 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”
