ISM Adamo Road SaddleISM (Innovative Saddle Makers) saddles are a revolution within the cycling industry. Their patented, nose-less design provides support for the pubic bones and takes pressure away from the soft tissue area. The result is no loss of blood flow, no numbness and ultimately, less pain and more comfort The Adamo Road is ISM's most popular saddle and is designed to be one of the shorter models. It is used mainly in time trial and triathlon. In keeping with the other shorter, performance saddles in the range, the rear slopes slightly upwards. This provides your hips with outstanding support when you are in an aero tuck or an aggressive road riding position. If you like to remain in one position throughout your ride, the Adamo Road is perfect for you. As a UCI legal saddle, the Adamo Road can be used in road races and time trials at all levels. Independent research shows that traditional saddles don't give enough support to the pubic bones. As a result, they cause pressure in that area of soft tissue that contains many nerves and arteries. This pressure can result in a reduction in blood flow, numbness and pain. The shorter, nose-less design of ISM saddles, coupled with the cut away front area, shift pressure back to the sit bones and relieve this pressure Unlike many saddle manufacturers, ISM does not have gender specific models. Their saddles are designed to relieve pressure and improve comfort for both men and women alike. In case you're wondering about the significance of the word Adamo, it derives from Latin and means 'to fall in love with'. Whether you ride your bike for competition or just for fun, the ISM Adamo Racing saddle will have you falling in love with cycling all over again!
