Selle SMP adds Blaster saddle to its 2017 lineup

By Stephen Frothingham

LAS VEGAS (BRAIN) — Selle SMP, the Italian maker of anatomically correct saddles, has introduced the new Blaster model to its 2017 line of ergonomic saddles.

The Blaster is based on the SMP Composit model but with the addition of slight padding uniformly distributed across the whole surface of the saddle. The company said the Blaster is perfect for both road and mountain biking, both men and women.

The Blaster features SMP’s exclusive design philosophy of “Your Body Designed by Selle SMP,” which includes a wide central channel that avoids the crushing of the perineun, an “Eagle beak” nose that releases compression on the external genitalia, a rear depression that prevents trauma to the coccyx caused by the road or trail vibration roughness, and wide range of fore / aft adjustment.

The Blaster is available with optional carbon rails and new 2017 SMP colors, Fluorescent Yellow and Light Blue.

MSRP is $260, or $425 with carbon rails.

All Selle SMP Saddles are imported and distributed in the U.S. by Albabici. More information at
