The Giant Romero SL saddle is a high performance saddle specifically designed for trail and enduro riding. Featuring a flexible chassis design with a nylon/glass fiber composite base to provide increased flexibility, as well as Side-Flex technology for inner leg comfort, the Romero SL also features all-new built-in Particle Flow padding to enhance shock absorption but retain base flexibility.
Key Performance Factors
ULTIMATE FLEXIBILITY & COMFORT
Designed, engineered and tested to deliver ultimate flexibility and comfort, from weekend single track shredding to full-on enduro racing, Giant Romero saddles feature Side-Flex technology that provides more comfort where thighs contact the saddle while descending in attack position, as purpose-built free-flow particles in the saddle padding offer increased shock absorption while seated.
PRO RIDER PERFORMANCE
Designed with input from our pro riders, the all-new Giant Romero saddle series has been tested in the most demanding off-road conditions. With Side-Wrap high-elastic padding covering all edges and providing better side and rear protection when moving quickly on and off the saddle, the purpose designed nose provides the optimal length, width and thickness of padding for just the right amount of support when attacking steep climbs.
Apt for virtually all mountain bikes, from trail to gravity, Giant Romero saddles feature carefully considered contours that work with either steep or slack seat tube geometry.
As Giant’s first performance mountain bike-specific saddle, the Romero SL is the result of a close collaboration of pro athlete testers and Giant engineers working with new technologies to deliver a new level of support and comfort.
Side Wrap Technology
A durable yet smooth and elastic Side-Wrap padding covers all the edges of the Romero, reducing the abrasion and impact that can happen when navigating corners in attack position and descending over rough terrain.
Optimized Long Nose Design
With an optimized long-nose design, down-sloping nose shape and optimal pad thickness, the Romero provides maximum support when attacking punchy, steep climbs.
Side Flex Technology
Featuring all-new Side-Flex technology, the Romero allows the sides of the saddle base to flex and adapt, reducing the abrasion and impact on the inner thigh that can happen when descending technical terrain at speed.
Nylon/Glass Fiber Composite Base
Compared with a carbon base, a nylon plus glass fiber composite base offers greater flexibility in multiple directions when pedaling or moving forward to attack steep climbs
Built-in Particle Padding
Using Particle Flow technology inherited from Giant road saddles, but applying it slightly differently, the Romero directly inserts two particle pockets into the padding of the saddle and provides full shock absorption and comfort while still giving the base the flexibility it needs.
Giant Rebound foam is our premium saddle padding that features optimal density foam with incredibly high elasticity at a super low weight. Optimal materials distribution also provides ultimate comfort and shock absorption and contributes to overall weight savings.
Techs & Features
Giant’s free-flowing high-elastic particles are inserted into two separate pockets that mold to each rider’s unique pelvic contact condition to provide further comfort and support. The particles deform more easily under pressure, providing superior comfort and high rebound performance, resulting in reduced pressure points across a broader contact area.
