The bike seat for fixie is a key part of the comfort you will have on your bike. Indeed, the fact that the transmission via the fixed gear requires the cyclist to pedal continuously to advance, slow down and brake requires a suitable type of fixie saddle.

Choosing a bike seat for fixie :

bike seat for fixie is curved on the top, narrow and short. It can be slightly raised at the rear for better support, its shell is relatively rigid to withstand a high pedaling frequency.

There is no strict rule in the choice of a saddle for a fixie, in fact each cyclist has his own ergonomics, his own points of support. On the other hand, the shape, the covering and the padding are criteria which should allow you to converge towards a solution. Indeed, the shape of a leather saddle will tend to be formed by the anatomy of the cyclist who uses it after many kilometers, on the other hand a covering in imitation or in sky will keep the same shape.

If you are using cycling shorts with a padding which will tend to absorb vibrations in this case you may want to choose a shell and a firm saddle padding.

Designers and manufacturers of fixie saddles offer many models with sometimes bright colors, coverings with different textures, or an appearance reminiscent of the oldest models. Here are the most popular brands: Extra +, Selle Italia, San Marco, Selle Monte Grappa and Brooks England which designs and manufactures leather saddles by hand with a know-how inherited from a long experience since its creation in early twentieth century.
