The legal stuff

Saddles are either bought outright or with a 30 day trial. You can return an outright saddle as long as it has not been used and is in the condition it was sent out in- Tags attached and packaged it was sent in. (No cheeky little rides)

Saddle Trial on 30 day approval

  • The trial fee varies per product as this price is related to the retail price

  • Trial saddles can be saddles from our saddle library and may have been used previously and therefore not always brand new saddles however should you have received a trial saddle it can be exchanged for a brand new before the end of the trial period should you be keeping the saddle. We do aim to send brand new saddles when possible and all saddles sent will be fit for purpose and fully sanitised.

  • Please take care of the saddle, as it is the customers – (the holder of the account that the saddle is purchased on) responsibility to make sure that the saddle is kept in good condition throughout the trial period and thereafter, the customer is also responsible that the saddle is kept safe from theft and loss, as if you cannot return then you will be unable to return the saddle for the part refund.

  • It is recommended that the saddles are returned via a tracked postal facility as The Seat Post  cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage in the post when being returned.

FREE Online Bike Fit

No this is not ideal - however - nothing is ideal currently. Lets face it. The UK is a bit of a lockdown mess. I have looked at online fitting and its a service that I can offer for free and I do term this a "bikefit" very loosely. Ideally a few side and front images of the bike set up - no rider - riders on and then we look at a few positions. - Still images. Then if you are able some moving shots from the side and front.

8 of the top 15 riders at Kona 2019 used this saddle

But you don't need to be a pro to get into the right saddle, or get that professionals advantage. The JCOB Delta 38 is the latest saddle design from master designer John Cobb. Based on the very popular Type 5 saddle, the Delta 38 is significantly narrower than any other full spit nose saddle on the market, something triathletes have been asking for since the beginning of split nose saddles. 105mm long seat rails to give a broad range of adjustment, the nose is 55mm wide so th

Caring for your bum on the bike.

Like all aspects of any training, be careful how you build-up- take your time and allow your body and that sensitive area to adapt.
