product description
The Cobb Cycilng V-Flow saddle is designed specifically for performance riding. By analyzing the pressure points and listening to riders' input, Cobb came up with a saddle that greatly increases rider comfort.
With the use of a Form Sensor Aray TekScan unit, Cobb was able to plot the exact skin pressure points over the areas that male riders use. In high performance road bikes or triathlon bikes, there is a large difference in seating positions when compared to recreational bikes. In the case of a triathlon bike, the rider is rotated much more forward, riding on a completely different part of the pelvis area.

The narrow rear section is especially great at relieving pressure from the hamstring muscle and the upper adductors. These pressure points are two of the leading causes of leg cramps and lower back pain.

By analyzing the pressure points and listening to riders' input, Cobb came up with a saddle that greatly increases rider comfort. Men need room for their upper legs to be able to swing further back on the saddle, especially while riding on aero bars or on the drops. Seats that have a wide rear area force the rider to move forward on the narrow nose of the seat, which is not comfortable and leads to very high Perineal nerve bundle area stress. Cobb’s testing showed that the proper seat shape and width offer the support and comfort needed for high mileage, comfortable cycling. Another area that promotes better rider comfort is the exclusive “V” notch in the rear of the seat cut out area. This functions as an air scoop, bringing moisture relief to the center seating area.

John Cobb is Internationally famous for his work with cyclists in wind tunnels. He has spent time developing the bottom side of these saddles to help guide the air to help the cyclist with more comfort. Keeping the riders’ chamois dry greatly reduces saddle sores and seat rashes. The internal base of the seat is another innovative area that helps cradle the rider for further relief of lower back stress. The swayback design gently holds the rider’s torso so that he or she doesn’t constantly slide forward and back on the seat. As the rider pedals with more pressure, the VFlow cradle gives a front support zone that the rider can pull against for increased power. One has to be comfortable to go fast and to go very far. The V-Flow saddle helps with both speed and comfort.

great all round saddle
August 22, 2011
This is a great all round saddle. You will be pleased with the contours of the saddle and the amount of padding. Just right for long rides or races. I have this saddle on my tri bike and my road bike. It allows the rider to shift positions as necessary for comfort as well as peak performace and efficency. It is durable and easy to clean as well as lighweight enough for racing. Cobb has it right on this one - comforable enough for those long distance training rides and lightweight enough to race in
Pros:
Durable, Good Padding, Lightweight
Best Uses:
Mountain Biking, All Around, Long Rides, Road Racing, Triathlon

Vee Awesome Saddle
December 17, 2010
The Cobb V-Flow is one awesome saddle. Its light weight yet durable design has broken the fine line of comfort and speed. Bringing up a new era of racing saddles. The V-Flow has many comfortable positions in which you can experiment with where you want to rest, and how. Providing an overall great ride no matter what the circumstances maybe. Many cyclists tend to overlook the importance in a saddle for its handling and control abilities (which many cyclists don't need to have superior handling). The V-Flow has the perfect width of the base to provide excellent control in hip pitch, with out being too wide or bulky. For the cyclists who can corner and handle good, you will love the control the V-Flow offers. For century racers, the V-Flow will test and push your endurance to new limits. The comfortablity of the V-Flow can easily last 4-6 hours straight on the saddle. This saddle is a great investment for anyone who is a cycle enthusiasts, commuter, racer, or some one looking to get into the sport of cycling. Note: As a member of the TriSports.com staff, I was provided this product at no charge to test and review
Pros:
Lightweight, Durable, Good Padding
Best Uses:
All Around
