Dynamic Shapes: Giant performance saddles are available in three shapes: Forward, Neutral and Upright. These three shapes are the result of the Dynamic Cycling Fit philosophy to fit each riderís unique pelvic contact condition.
Particle Flow Technology: Free-flowing particles are inserted into two separate pockets within the saddle structure that mold to each riderís unique pelvic contact condition. This reduces pressure points by more than 20 percent and distributes pressure across a broader contact area.
Pressure Relief Channel: Each contact condition shape features a shape-specific channel that reduces pressure on the perineum and improves overall blood circulation for better comfort during long days in the saddle.
Optimized Support: Contact SLR saddles feature a lightweight carbon base connected to 9mm full-carbon rails. Contact SL saddles feature a lightweight composite base with 7mm SST hollow stainless steel rails.
Microfiber Comfort Wrap: All Giant performance saddles feature high-density foam padding that covers the Particle Flow Technology pockets with durable vacuum formed Microfiber material.
Abrasion Resistance: Lightweight nylon material at three key wear pointsóon the two tail edges and the nose of the saddleóprotects the saddle from getting scuffed, damaged or worn.
As one of the three key contact points between rider and bike, your saddle plays a critical role in any riding experience. Giantís newest line of performance saddles uses our Dynamic Cycling Fit concept to produce tailor-made comfort and fit for your body, your position and your riding style. Every Giant Contact SLR and Contact SL model is available in three different options based on the unique shape and angle of a riderís pelvis while riding. Once a riderís natural pelvic contact condition is determined, zones can be chosen.
YOUR PERFECT FIT.
Tested and raced at the pro level by the Rabobank Development Team on the road, and the Giant Factory Off-Road Team for enduro, downhill and XC, the all-new Giant comfort.
Dynamic Cycling Fit
Contact SLR and Contact SL saddles are engineered for maximum performance and fit while in motion. Instead of targeting fit and comfort goals for a static state (sitting), we used advanced engineering and testing methodologies to create shapes and pressure-relief zones that function best during a dynamic state (riding and pedaling).
Pelvic Contact Conditions
Through our Dynamic Cycling Fit concept, Giant created three different fit options for each Contact SLR and Contact SL saddle based on the riderís natural pelvic contact condition while riding: Forward, Neutral and Upright. A simple, easy-to-use saddle selection process can identify this condition to help you choose one that is perfect for you.
