Why ride a MANTA?


The MANTA saddle has taken over 11 years of research, design and testing in collaboration with leading technologists and manufacturing companies such as DuPont™ to reach the saddle we have today.

The sole focus has always been to produce an effective cycle saddle that both combines exceptional performance and comfort whilst removing the potentially harmful and uncomfortable “saddle nose” designs which exists on all other saddles..

The MANTA saddle has been specifically designed to suit all riders of all ages and genders and cross multiple riding disciplines from leisure and commuting to road race and mountain biking.

So whether you use your bike to commute to work or are an avid cross country mountain biker you will feel equally at home riding a MANTA. You can also be sure in your mind that you can continue on for mile after mile in total comfort without harming your body.

No other saddle on the market today offers the same level of comfort and support whilst also maintaining performance and promoting correct posture as the MANTA bicycle saddle.

Traditional saddles typically rely on the “nose” to both support the riders weight and for riding stability. This design at first glance does seem logical and sensible and indeed it was in the 1800’s.

With today’s advances in medical technology we now have a much greater understanding of the human body and how outside influences can affect us. With cycling continuing to increase in popularity as a carbon neutral method of transport and for leisure more and more research is being conducted on the effects of cycling on the rider with specific focus on the saddle.

Many direct studies have directly linked the use of traditional saddles with long term permanent damage to the areas around the perineum which were never designed to take humans weight as they are forced too when riding.

We are only now beginning to see some of the health risks that exist with traditional saddles.

Unique Patented Design, Invented & Made in Scotland


MANTA, and the MANTA saddle are uniquely a product of Scotland’s diversity of talent, its engineering, and rugged environment. Designed and manufactured in North-West Scotland, developed in Edinburgh, Cambridge, and Taiwan.

We pay exceptional attention to our manufacturing process and use local suppliers for all our parts and custom components. We are on first name terms with everyone in our production loop ensuring we can provide the very best product possible.

Each saddle is individually hand assembled and tested by our technicians in and around Scotland who are experienced and who themselves use the saddle daily.

When you buy a MANTA saddle you are buying into Scotland’s innovation, cycle design (pedals for eg) and manufacturing heritage.

The MANTA saddle incorporates cutting edge Adaptive Ray™ technology and is the only saddle which dynamically moves in conjunction with its rider.

The lever based design concept mirrors that of the human body itself and indeed the bicycle and creates the perfect interface between man and machine.

The human body and the bicycle are exceptionally efficient machines, by improving the connection between these machines its possible to dramatically improve long term performance whether that’s commuting to work and being less tired or winning that 100 mile road race.

The choice is yours.
