When on a road bike, the riding position is moved forward and is mostly static, as opposed to on a mountain bike, when the rider moves on and off of the saddle frequently. The forward leaning road position also causes the pelvis to rotate toward the front, which results in a narrower sit bone angle at the point of contact between rider and saddle.
To accommodate this specific position, GOREĀ® road seat inserts are engineered with a road-specific shape, level of protection, and support to maximize comfort for long days in the saddle.
