Scientia R>3 Technical Specifications


BODY CONTOUR

 

A radius-specific design to provide optimum comfort for differing spine angles. The more inclined the Riding Position, the smaller the edge-radius.

 

CURVA SUSPENSION

The unique curved suspension design is attached at the rear of the base to offer exclusive comfort by avoiding pressure on the seat bone contact points and guaranteeing additional lateral flexibility.

 

REAR PLATEAU

Indentation in the saddle middle whose shape and dimensions have been studied to correspond to ischial variations for greater comfort.

3D SKIN GEL

Royalgel™ is placed intelligently at critical points of contact on the saddle surface for added shock absorption, while reducing overall saddle weight.

CENTRAL RESERVOIR

Indentation in the saddle middle whose shape and dimensions have been studied to correspond to ischial variations for greater comfort.

CUSTOM FITTING

Find the centres of your two ischial impressions and measure the distance between these two points with a ruler. The result is your ischial distance.


At e-bikeshop, we understand saddles can be a pain in the a*se! That's why we have Selle Royal Scientia custom fit measuring tools in house to tailor fit a saddle to YOU - the rider.

The nine models in the new Selle Royal Scientia saddle range are created by combining two
main rider characteristics: their riding position and their “Ischial variation” – the
measurement between their ‘sit bones’. This service is offered in store FOC with the saddle purchase.

Selle Royal, along with researchers from the Sport University of Cologne, the
largest sports university in Europe, have undertaken extensive research – having
applied scientific theory, data collection and testing methods – to understand the
fundamental design characteristics essential to optimising well-being and overall
cycling performance.

This research is coupled with Selle Royal’s own market-leading understanding of
saddle design and technology to create Scientia, a full spectrum of nine saddles
with profile styles and dimensions that correspond to different riders, delivering
optimum comfort and increased performance for all.

The research we have done at Selle Royal over the years gives us a great insight
into cyclists’ requirements from a saddle, but the detailed scientific data
collection, analysis and interpretation by the team at Sport University of Cologne
gives us a fantastic base of empirical evidence on which to apply our designs

says Roberto Bucci, project leader and brand manager at Selle Royal.
Using hundreds of volunteers, the university’s researchers developed rigorous
methods for quantifying the classic considerations of saddle design: gender
differences, saddle shape, and the role played by ischial distance.

Afterward, a
list of recommendations were published and passed on to a team of designers
tasked with combining these proven fundamentals with designs for a new range
of saddles.
“It was a challenge put on the table following years of ergonomics experience,
but as a humble brand we decided to test our products and our beliefs using
cutting edge technologies and scientific research together with the university of
Cologne; the conclusion was that we scientifically reinforced our beliefs,”
added Roberto Bucci.
