GELU saddle K-3 carbon / perforated | 3K matt
Gelu Carbon Creation was brought to life by Anghel Ivanof in 2013. 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. racing boats, canoes and surfboards.
After an excursion into aviation technology, which started in 1999, it was time in 2005 to apply the knowledge gained to the manufacture 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 orthopedic surgeon, an engineer and some of the best Portuguese athletes, a product was developed step by step that also meets the requirements of the best athletes.
Weighing between 38g to 59g, the saddles of the K series are the most popular saddles from Gelu Carbon Creation.
Small, compact and very flat. This makes the saddles of the K series the most versatile in the Gelu range, as their shape means they fit many sit bones. The central opening has been specially designed to ensure that no pressure is exerted on the prostate region. K-3 is not only the lightest saddle (38 g), but is also considered one of the most comfortable by many athletes.
Every Gelu Carbon saddle is made by hand in Portugal. For maximum comfort and safety, all saddles are checked and certified by an orthopedic surgeon. So you get off your bike with a smile even after the longest tour. A perfect finish also pampers the eye and leaves nothing to be desired in the finished product.
With the K-3, the portuguese have the lightest saddle in the world. Despite its 38g weight, the saddle is approved for riders up to 85 kg. The intended use is limited to racing bikes, leisure bikes and city bikes. The saddle is not approved for use on the MTB.
