Introduced in 2011, the Time Trial is a slightly different take on the Racing II saddle. What’s the difference? While it features the same firm padding and rear shape as the Racing, the front arms feature a contoured downward slope. This can aid in allowing the rider to roll their hips forward for high power output, or for increased comfort with a high amount of saddle-to-handlebar drop.
Similar to the other Performance Short seats (Racing II, Road, Typhoon), the Time Trial is best for riders that prefer to stay in one position on the seat, without moving fore/aft very much. This makes it a top choice for triathletes and time trialists who ride in the aerobars, or for flat courses in which the athlete likes to ‘settle in’ to one position and go.
Like all ISM saddles, the Time Trial is nose-less and designed to remove pressure from soft tissue, ensuring maximum blood flow, no genital numbness, and a healthier, more enjoyable ride.
