The Specialized Power saddle set the stage for the current revolution happening in the road cycle saddle market. Originally designed as a female-specific seat, the Power saddle was first introduced in 2015 and is a popular choice for both men and women. The Power has evolved into a whole line of saddles in various widths, shapes, and textures, with the latest version (“Women’s Power Pro”) designed specifically for female riders (“Mimic” technology limits swelling in sensitive areas). All Power Saddles are relatively short in length and feature a wide central relief channel. These saddles are most at home on road bikes, however a handful of athletes were spotted in Kona sporting Power saddles on their tri rigs.
