Selle-An-Atomica looking for Beta Testers of new saddle.

Just received an email from Selle-An-Atomica that says they're looking for Beta Testers for the new Titanica X which is designed for 200+ pound riders. If you're picked, and you like the saddle at the end of the testing, you get to keep it.

Good luck! I've ridden the standard Selle-An-Atomica from 225 down to 175lbs and it's served me well. I'm sure this new model will be even better.

I submitted my app. Had to add up my monthly miles. Hope they don't think I'm exaggerating.

I've ridden 3 Titanicos from 235-210 lbs now. I've completely sworn off everything else. But, I still slowly stretch them out and make them squeak a bit. I hope I can give feedback on this before it goes for sale. I'll end up with a few either way, but it would be a lot of fun to get to contribute to the design.

Got this e-mail yesterday saying that I should get more ibstructions today but have not seen anything yet.

Dear Kenneth
Congratulations – after reviewing hundreds of applications, you and 19 others have been chosen as beta testers for the new Titanico X.

We will be testing four colors. We will do our best to match your color preference, but your flexibility is appreciated. The colors are:

Black
White
Golden
Mahogany

Tomorrow we will follow up with instructions, get your color preferences, and provide log in information so you can provide us with feedback on your experiences with this new saddle.

Thank you for your interest in Selle An-Atomica and the Titanico X beta.


Kind regards,


The Selle An-Atomica Team

Not complaining just a little disappointed. The discount is nice and I'll probably buy one in spring. kjc9640 simply must tell us about it.

Cool! I wish I had been picked, but I'm glad someone here was. If you're allowed to, please tell us all about it. Enjoy!

Per the e-mail on Monday from Selle I was to be contacted on Tuesday with additional information. It is now Thursday 3:15 PM and I have yet to hear another word. I sent them an e-mail last night thanking them for picking me, thinking that might stir the pot a little but have not heard anything yet.
