Anyone who has ridden a bike for any length of time does not need to be told that occassionally a sore derriere can be a problem!
The company Stylyx has introduced its new range of road bikes with a uniquely shaped seat and upright riding position.
Stylyx Managing Director, Peter Clutton: “The final solution involved developing new patented design technology for the bike frame and applying a ‘seat integrated’ approach to each bike’s design, where a specific seat shape is integrated with frame geometry and rider-positioning from the very outset of the design process.”
The bike seat is designed to remove the pressure and chafing of the inner thighs whilst providing an unhindered leg action to make full use of pedaling power.
“The seat provides correct anatomical support through the buttocks (with no body contact at the riders central crotch area) and removes the lower back strain brought on by “pelvic float” (lateral movement when pedaling),” said Stylyx.
The frame design and riding position
The frame design positions the rider in an upright position, with the rider’s bodyweight directly over the seat, eliminating the “bent spine” riding position and correspondingly reducing the risk of back pain or injury. This positioning, combined with the correct support from the bike seat, is designed to produce a much healthier riding position.
The patented “Personal Positioning System” (PPS), allows every rider to adjust the riding position to suit personal differences in leg length, arm length, and body length and achieve the ideal riding position for his/her physique.
