GELU saddle K-3 carbon/perforated | 3K matte
Gelu Carbon Creation was brought to life in 2013 by Anghel Ivanof. Anghel has more than 20 years of experience in processing composite materials. It all started in the early 1990s with the manufacture and repair of carbon components for e.g. B. speedboats, canoes and surfboards.
After an excursion into aviation technology, which began in 1999, it was time in 2005 to apply the knowledge gained to the production of high-quality bicycle parts. The first prototype of a carbon saddle saw the light of day in 2006.
Thanks to the close collaboration with an orthopaedist, an engineer and some of the best Portuguese athletes, a product has been developed step by step that also meets the needs of the best athletes.
Weighing between 38g and 59g, the K Series saddles are Gelu Carbon Creation's most popular saddles.
Small, compact and very flat. This makes the K-Series saddles the most versatile in the Gelu range, as their shape allows them to fit many sit bones. The central opening has been specially designed to ensure that no pressure is exerted on the prostate region. Not only is the K-3 the lightest saddle (38g), it is also considered by many athletes to be one of the most comfortable.
Each Gelu Carbon saddle is handcrafted in Portugal. For maximum comfort and safety, all saddles are tested and certified by an orthopedist. So you get off your bike with a smile even after the longest tour. A perfect finish also spoils the eye and leaves nothing to be desired in the finished product.
With the K-3, the Portuguese have what is probably the lightest saddle in the world. Despite its 38g weight, the saddle is approved for riders up to 85 kg. The area of intended use is limited to racing bikes, leisure bikes and city bikes. The saddle is not approved for use on MTBs.
