Koobi PRS Century Bike Saddle

11 Jul

Choosing a bike saddle is one of the most personal decisions any cyclist can make. A saddle that is perfect for one rider might be considered a form of torture to another. Last year I purchased a Koobi PRS Century Bike Saddle and it is has been one of the best cycling purchases I’ve ever made.

Until last year I cycled an average of 3,000 miles a year. After purchasing the Koobi PRS Century Bike Saddle I was able to ride over 4,650 miles last year and I give most of the credit to this saddle. In the past 12 months I’ve put in over 6,000 miles while riding on a Koobi saddle and I can’t imagine riding on anything else. The reason I tried the Koobi in the first place was their 30-day money back guarantee. After my first ride on this saddle I knew I would not be sending it back.

What makes Koobi saddles so great? Well, they are designed to almost force you to put your weight on your sit-bones and once you learn to do this both your power and comfort will increase quickly. Each saddle also has a feature they call tunable suspension—several sets of elastomer springs that offer up to 4/10 inch of travel. These elastomer springs absorb road shock incredibly well.

Koobi makes several saddles and I chose the PRS Century because it is designed for cyclists who ride at least six hours a week but who do not want a firm saddle. These lightweight saddles are custom-built and come with either Ti Alloy or Manganese rails and there are models for both men and women.

Koobi saddles are not cheap—they cost around $200 each. However, I think this is money well spent. I know you could save a lot of money by getting an inferior saddle, but I would rather enjoy riding my bike instead of spending time complaining about how sore my backside is because of a cheap saddle!

How good are the Koobi saddles? After riding on a Koobi for just a couple of weeks I order two more saddles (one for a mountain bike and the other for my second road bike). I think the best compliment I can give them is this: after riding for six hours on a Koobi saddle I can go into a restaurant and sit on a hard chair without any discomfort at all.

The best way to buy a Koobi Bike Saddle is by visiting Koobi’s Website. You can also call them at 1-877-Ride-Koobi (877-743-3566).
