The pad of Bjōrn Probka saddle is made of cork. The cork is a natural cushioning material with excellent damping properties, which translates into smoothing of the vibrations from the road and still great power transfer.
In terms of cushioning and weight, Probka fits perfectly in between Bjōrn "raw carbon" Sedlo saddle and Setka saddle with 3d printed pad.
Technical specification of the serial Bjōrn Probka saddle: Weight: 105 grams Width: 143 mm, 155 mm Length: 250 Rail to saddle topper: 35 to 45 mm, depending on the position Max rider's weight: 120 kg. You can secure a saddlebag under 10 kg. Max torque: 5 N*m
Comfortable The shape of serial Probka saddle replicates the profile of the Setka saddle. Flexible and supportive, the cork pad deforms under the rider's pressure points over time, adjusting to the rider uniquely. This increases the contact area, providing comfort on long distance. Serial Probka saddle features 8 mm thick pad with pressure relieve channel in the front.
Durable The durability of the cork as material is confirmed by its use in the shoe and furniture industries. The cork pad of Probka is impregnated with a special compound that provides protection against moisture, salt and UV rays. The shell of Probka saddle is made of carbon with a triangular reinforcement pattern underneath. It allows good power transfer while flexing under a high load. Together with oval rails which are constructively bonded to the core, they make a reliable construction proven by time.
Lightweight Probka saddle weighs only 105 grams, which makes it one of the lightest padded saddles in the World.
Customization Since we CNC-mill all pads ourselves, it is possible to create all kinds of customization of the pad: asymmetries in thickness, pressure relieve areas, laser engravings - you call it.
