Kontact Anatomical Saddle $110
The Kontact saddle was developed based on the research of Joshua Cohen, P.T., M.S., author of Finding the Perfect Bike Seat. It features a relatively flat rear portion to support the sit bones and has a softer gel zone in the center of the saddle’s long bulbous nose (instead of a cutout) to provide perineal relief. Testers found the nose to be a bit too narrow and rounded for comfortable nose riding, so the saddle is best for a relatively upright posture or riders who sit toward the back of the saddle.
