The Era Dynamic Protek Open returns into the range as an entry-level saddle but still using the most advanced technologies and high quality materials. The Open System is designed for total support and relief in the perineal area increasing comfort.
|Padding Material:||Bio foam|
The Era Dynamic Protek Open is the ideal saddle for those who are new to cycling and require immediate comfort which is guaranteed thanks to the easy and comfortable shape and thanks also to the Open System.
Ideal for use on road or off-road the Protek version features silicone inserted into the cover that are distributed in the areas most subject to wear but not only do you help protect the saddle they also increase bike control when sat in the saddle.
Protek helps to increase the resistance of the saddle to wear and tear. To this purpose, silicone supports have been added on the sides, where it is higher the possibility that the saddle deteriorate because of the friction or abrasion.
The Open System is the result of clinical tests and ongoing research on the anatomical conformation of riders. This feature consists of a gradual opening in the saddle for total support and relief in the perineal area.
A challenge: managing to obtain better comfort in the saddles with gel inserts, lower weight and lasting greater resistance. BioFoam padding is the San Marco solution. The Biodynamic structure that follows the movements of the pelvis during pedaling, guarantees comfort, reduced weight, resistance and ideal support. The “closed cells” surface assures the water repellency of the padding.
This cover is breathable and hard wearing. This material also offers better adherence to the padding, emphasizing the ergonomic shapes of the saddle. It is less deformable and lighter than traditional materials. The particular surface assures an anti-skid effect with an extraordinary grip on the saddle. Its composition respects the standards of bio-compatibility.
Performance saddles are narrower than the models designed for shorter ride comfort. They're intended for riders who have a committed riding style with weight on hands and feet so they're narrower and lighter. High tech padding materials and flexible body designs keep your pressure points comfortable and lightweight chassis components keep the weight down. Most have some kind of ergonomic design to reduce pressure on nerves and allow unrestriced blood flow to your sensitive areas. Womens models have a wider design to suit their naturally wider pelvis. Saddle widths vary across the ranges from narrow (upto 130mm), medium (upto 138mm) to wide (upto 146mm). Narrower saddles are the popular choice for longer distance riders as they do not cause the hips to be placed in an unnatural position. Wider saddles will often feel comfortable initially due to their greater surface area but then progressively decrease in comfort as the miles increase, the correct choice of saddle is a case of getting the balance between initial comfort and overall comfort.
Selle San Marco are proud of their decades of history. Their founder, Comm. Luigi Girardi, with insight and sagacity created in Rossano Veneto an entrepreneurial model to admire and follow. Today the founder's grandchildren - Luigi and his brothers Luca, Giovanni and Antonella - have inherited his dynamism along with the management of Sella San Marco. They run Selle San Marco with the help of their enthusiastic parents Antonio and Giuseppina, who are occupied daily in the firm. "We are approaching 70 years in business, seventy years of vast and constantly increasing production, all of it in Italy," says Luigi Girardi. "We developed and manufactured famous saddles like the Regal, Rolls and Concor, Era models, ridden by the greatest champions of cycling. "Every year we've added new patents and solutions to our collection, saddles designed to meet every need of every cyclist.”
