Protect and decorate your saddle
The saddle cover (in gel or foam) is not the essential element that the cyclist thinks of first when looking for equipment. Nevertheless, it has become a must for any long-distance hiker or urban cyclist looking to gain a little comfort. Cheap and quick to install, it provides better footing in all seasons.
The saddle cover allows you to protect your saddle from bad weather and UV rays thanks to covers guaranteeing waterproofness, to keep your buttocks dry! The Urban Proof brand offers saddle covers made from 4 plastic bottles for a minimal ecological footprint.
The saddle cover is also becoming a fashion accessory with models with original and colorful patterns for cyclists looking to personalize their bicycle.
Before the purchase remember to note the type of saddle that equips your bike (road saddle or comfort saddle of Dutch bike - generally wider)
For its installation, nothing could be easier, the covers are sold with a small cord that will be tightened, adjusted and tied to the saddle. Others are equipped with a rubber band that encircles the entire saddle.
