About Unified Sport & MANTA
MANTA for your ride
MANTA for your health
MANTA’s designer is cycle obsessive.
Rarely bothering with a car, avid cyclist, sculptor and varied construction engineer (project manager/builder), Jon sees the bicycle is a sublimely fun, and supremely efficient machine for human transport. A perfect tool to provide viable, clean, safe cities. This was motivation enough to seek a genuine seating solution. The MANTA saddle was designed to revolutionize all our riding experiences.
Time to be part of a revolution.
Why choose MANTA?
In stark contrast to bicycle efficiency, bike seating has been much the same since its inception. Not supportive enough, not supporting in the right places. Large traditional saddles are too restrictive.
Pain is the body’s way of saying something isn’t right. It affects endurance and enjoyment, especially over distance, you think you get used to it, as you go numb. Eventually soft parts become hardened.
The MANTA is designed to suit all riders from 10 years-on (and from 2-ish, soon), it is found to be therapeutic, via increased blood-flow* (research results coming).
Time to enjoy a new sensation.
*The MANTA is unique, in increasing groin blood-flow during cycling.
“I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species… the Condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. Humans came in with a rather less impressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. But then someone at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency for a man on a bicycle – a man on a bicycle blew the Condor away” – Steve Jobs
