Apart from walking, riding a bike is about as eco as transport can get. But for many, there is one problem: pain.How shall we put this? Erm….after many hours of riding over Europe’s cobblestones, it’s quite likely riders will find themselves in pain in their lower regions. ‘Saddle sore’, if you will, which can make urban biking slightly unpleasant. But one man has thought of a solution.
Martin Moravcik invented a new company, Morgaw bike seats, which produces a new kind of bike saddle with built-in interchangeable shock absorbers. The seat can be adjusted to the rider’s weight for different levels of support: soft, medium or hard. Martin says: ‘these are designed to absorb stress during your ride.’
Martin adds: ‘with this design, we could create exchangeable rails, which is something other saddles don’t have at all.’ Certainly, the designer aims to not only make customers sit more comfortably, but to feel their bike is truly theirs: ‘our customers can also accommodate their taste and customise our saddles and seat posts with different colour schemes. We hope to embody all riders’ needs,’ he says with a grin.
