Wow. All these solutions for unproperly set up regular saddles. They tire me. And as said before, I'll have a splayed pullet as a retrogrouch version of this saddle

It seems to me something like this has been tried before and never caught on. The target group it would appeal to doesn't ride enough to justify the expense.

Great - more excuses for chafing.

If you want to permanently ruin the entire future of this product, just post it to Advocacy & Safety. It'll create a nightmarish anti-buzz marketing campaign.

Two observations:

Those wacky Germans have a different word for everything!

and

Can you think of another piece of equipment that has more non-solutions than the poor bicycle seat?

My German's a bit rusty, a treatment for cellulite? Or was it a chiropractor trolling for customers?

Sheesh! One more ugly wart to add to already ugly "modern" bikes they sell today!
Really convinces me that the 80's and early 90's WERE definitely the golden age of bicycles.

Exactly: an art-student tribute to H.R. Giger, then the Marketing Dept. said; "Wait! We're called "Comfort Line", let's strap on a couple foam pads from this old backpack...now we're Golden!"
The impractical meets the absurd...creating the ridiculous.

Haha, my German is not so rusty (but not so good to start with!) and that sales pitch on the front page is laughable.

"Bionics are the foundation for this revolutionary seating system.

Bionics occupy themselves with the unlocking of "discoveries of the experienced Nature" and the translation of these discoveries totechnology. The looks, build and movement of the Relax IQ Saddle is found in both the human spine and in rays (fish).

Bc is constituted out of Biology and Technology, and thus expresses how biological concepts can be used for technical means. Bionics is learning systematically from nature. Succesfull examples can be found in the äutomobile and aerospatial industry."

What a load of crap. Brooks isn't selling their saddles by saying it resembles a bull's skull,right?

Grundlage für dieses revolutionäre Sitz-System ist die Bionik

Bionik beschäftigt sich mit der Entschlüsselung von "Erfindungen der belebten Natur" und ihrer innovativen Umsetzung in der Technik. Die Optik sowie Aufbau und Bewegungsablauf des relax IQ Sattels wurde der menschlichen Wirbelsäule sowie dem Rochen (Fisch) nachempfunden.

Bionik setzt sich aus Biologie und Technik zusammen und bringt damit zum Ausdruck, wie für technische Anwendungen Prinzipien verwendet werden können, die aus der Biologie abgeleitet werden. Die Bionik ist systematisches Lernen von der Natur. Hierzu gibt es unzählige erfolgreiche Beispiele u.a. aus der Automobilindustrie sowie der Luftfahrt.

They also sell some pretty legit leather saddles, with their flagship being a 2-ton saddle called the "Kaiser Wilhelm II". They expressly advertise it against the onslaught of the "Big English Brand". Way too funny, you can't make this **** up.

Has anyone who posted tried one? There is some logic to the design.
