As a regular bicycle rider, I know how important it is to choose the rightmost saddle for a safe and relaxed ride. You probably also think in this way if you riding bicycles for some time. That is why Selle SMP TRK Gel Saddle is a saddle you might consider for better riding experiences. Here is a short SMP TRK Saddle Review for further information.
SMP TRK Saddle Review: An Overview
|Saddle Rails||Steel Rail|
|Dimensions||10.24 X 6.89 X 2.56 Inches|
The first thing you will notice on SMP TRK Saddle is it’s extremely thick cushioning on the hip-contact area. This ensures your pelvis bones never touch the hard shell and you seat in comfort while cycling. Plus, it is a unisex saddle and designed in that way too. For both male and female riders, it remains pressureless in the private area. Apparently, you can be comfortable like a home couch on this saddle.
Selle is always well known for its durable saddles and user-friendly saddles. This one is not different as well. With Gel padding forms, it has more improved comfort. While riding, it doesn’t pressure you at any certain point and hurt you. Rater its clever engineering spreads rider weight evenly on the seat.
In my opinion, the Selle SMP TRK Gel Saddle Black is a great choice if you want a good combination of durability, comfort, and performance.
What I Like:
● Comes with a large center cut. It makes the saddle more flexible and provides gentle airflow at the bottom.
● It weighs 0.5 Kilograms. Meaning, it doesn’t distort the balance of the bicycle.
● The gel padding form gives you extra comfort prevents the seat from overheating.
● The steel rails are very durable and long-lasting.
What I Don’t Like:
● Little heavy as a performance saddle.
● May not be wide enough to provide full comfort to very big size riders.
FAQs: Selle SMP TRK Gel Saddle Black
What is the weight and width of this seat?
Answer: The manufacturer’s website does list all the Selle San Marco SMP saddles with weight specifications as well. The website from the manufacturer is a great resource.
How does it fasten to the seat post? Is it a standard mount?
Answer: Your seat post should have a clamp with screws to grasp the rails under the seat. The seat comes with rails. Can’t really say it’s standard but I was able to install it easily without any special parts.
What’s the difference between medium and large?
Answer: The sizing is actually M for men’s and L for Ladies. Not really Medium or Large from the research I have done on the seats.
How do I determine if I need the large or medium seat?
Hi, great question. The Medium seat is actually the Men’s saddle (Med=Men). The Large seat is for Ladies (Lg=Ladies). This is just the way SMP has designated the seats. There is not a large or medium for men. Just know that the Medium is for Men.
Thanks for looking,
