Blasting down a bumpy trail is exhilarating, but it can also be a painful experience if your bike isn’t built with the right gear. Thanks to 3D-printing, bikemaker company Specialized and Carbon teamed up to create the S-Works Power Saddle, providing you with a personalized seat for a comfortable ride no matter where you roam.

Utilizing Carbon Digital Light SynthesisTM technology, the bike seat is constructed using 14,000 lattices, allowing the saddle to rebound and flex during your ride. This provides suspension for your bones, as the seat disperses pressure and improves breathability to reduce pain and injuries. What’s even more enticing is that Specialized is planning to customize the saddle via a pressure mapping system for each rider, providing you with the perfect fit. The S-Works’ elastomeric polyurethane lattice structure is the same one used in the Adidas FutureCraft shoes and Riddell’s SpeedFlex helmet. Expect the S-Works Power Saddle to drop 2020.
