Choosing the Right Triathlon Bike Saddle


Triathlon bikes have unique requirements to fit triathletes properly and provide a comfortable ride free of saddle sores when triathletes get down in the aero triathlon bike position. Triathlon Taren unboxes some COBB Saddles and discusses some of the decision factors that triathletes need to consider when selecting a saddle for their tri bike.

  1. Nice vid man – congrats on Worlds too. Just finished week 5 of your sprint plan and it's been great so far!

  2. Great Vid! Totally agree with getting saddle fit at LBS. The saddle my Tri bike came with looked and felt awful. Had the bike and saddle fitted and now love the setup! Did IM Boulder this year and the saddle was comfortable for the whole ride.

  3. Would love to see how you get fit for the saddle. I'm definitely going to be getting a new saddle in spring.

  4. I use an ISM Adamo on a road bike, IMO they aren't restricted to tri bikes, great saddle compared to the awful ones you usually get by default. Not sure if there couldn't be a better saddle for me, but I like my ISM

  5. My new bike has the Adamo saddle on it and HOLY COW I was sore after the first ride! I think I'm getting it more dialed, but I'm not 100% sold on it yet. It seems to be a bit too wide for me as well.

  6. 6:02 "……thoradosis…" What? Lordosis is the curve in the lower back ….the lumbar region.
    Kyphosis is the curve in you upper back or the thoracic region.
    What you said is not a thing. At all. Nope.

  7. Started using a ISM 2.1 and I love it. Took some figuring out where to sit and to roll my hips forward, but now I love it.

  8. Not gonna lie….around the 6:25 mark you lost me! I couldn’t stop watching Pete 😂 He is absolutely hilarious, love his soulful expressions 👌🏻 Pete wants more camera time!

  9. On your next saddle video, it would be cool if you can include tips on proper height and positioning. I love that Cobb include the rear bottle and tool bag into one unit and I love their M. design too. I've been happy with my San Marco Selle saddle but I'm always open for new designs as well. Thanks Taren.

  10. In the end…it's all about the butt. See what I did there? And you could use a bigger knife next time to get into those boxes. 😜

  11. Hey Taren I'm trying to build my own tri bike and I was wondering if you had any extra split nose saddles? Thanks

  13. I would be inteyrested in whether you think Rak- it would help make my transition faster – I found it at www.tri-trained.co.uk/store/p2/Rak~it.html
