Morgaw Saddles and Seatposts

 

If someone asked you what you expected from your saddle, you may well answer “comfort”, which seems perfectly reasonable, and then you might say “lightweight”, which again is a reasonable assumption… but would your third answer be “the possibility of changing rails”? Well according to Morgaw, a new Slovakian bicycle company concentrating on making innovative bicycle saddles and seatposts, it would be.
 

Based on those three criteria Morgaw have produced a new saddle which they believe brings something new to cycling. They’ve spent over 2 years developing their new collection and must have got something right as they recently won the IBDC (International Bike Design Competition) Bicycle Innovation of the year 2014.

It says a lot about the state of the buoyant bicycle industry when every component seems to be coming under closer scrutiny and being subject to constant re-development and improvement.

 

Leaving the changing rails bit aside for the moment, the real innovation here lies in the suspension units in the saddle. Suspended saddles are nothing new but where the Morgaw saddles differ is that the suspension, whilst being more comfortable by helping to dissipate the shocks that can be transmitted by saddles into the spine, is also actually designed to make the saddle more responsive to a rider’s body movement, the implication being that it may actually assist in pedalling by working with the rider as opposed to simply being a static platform. The shock absorbers are available in differing stiffnesses to suit different body weights.

The rails are interchangeable which if you’ve every suffered a broken rail may be an important development, but would also allow you to replace the saddle itself without having to change the rails were that damaged…

Morgaw also produce a very nice looking seatpost called the O-sys, which is available in carbon or aluminium. All of their products are availabe with multiple colour options and accessories.

There’s a lot of information on the Morgaw Facebook Page and they are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to support the project.
