Recognizing the importance of proper saddle fit, Giant created a program that considers the unique and variable conditions of a cyclist's connection to the saddle while riding. We call this philosophy Dynamic Cycling Fit. Whatever type of riding you prefer, you can enjoy the comfort of a saddle that feels like it was made just for you.
Giant performance saddles are available in three shapes: Forward, Neutral and Upright. These three shapes are the result of the Dynamic Cycling Fit philosophy to fit each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition.
Particle Flow Technology
Free-flowing particles are inserted into two separate pockets within the saddle structure that mold to each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition. This reduces pressure points by more than 20 percent and distributes pressure across a broader contact area.
Pressure Relief Channel
Each contact condition shape features a shape-specific channel that reduces pressure on the perineum and improves overall blood circulation for better comfort during long days in the saddle.
Contact SLR saddles feature a lightweight carbon base connected to 9mm full-carbon rails. Contact SL saddles feature a lightweight composite base with 7mm SST hollow stainless steel rails.
Microfiber Comfort Wrap
All Giant performance saddles feature high-density foam padding that covers the Particle Flow Technology pockets with durable vacuum formed Microfiber material.
Lightweight nylon material at three key wear points—on the two tail edges and the nose of the saddle—protects the saddle from getting scuffed, damaged or worn.
