Smanie has a tremendous passion for all things two-wheeled. It is through this passion that we strive to design innovative, high-quality, eco-friendly saddles that put the rider's passion first. As experienced cyclists, we know better than anyone else that the most important feature of a saddle is that you forget about it while riding. Only then can you optimally concentrate on the road or trail in front of you and optimally enjoy surroundings. Smanie saddles are environmentally friendly and designed in Columbus, OH.
Smanie saddles sometimes have 2 the same saddles but these then differ in weight and in price this is because they are different anyway. The main difference between the two saddles is the use of the chromoly rail, which is much lighter than the steel rail, and also the padding material. The steel rail or sports saddles use PU foam and the chromoly rail saddles use EVA foam. EVA is much lighter than PU and provides more comfort during longer rides because the foam can withstand extreme deformation after 3 hours, whereas PU then begins to deform much more.
