"This device could be a game-changer for many bikes and riders of all types."
"I ride with multiple folks for whom this could be the best upgrade to their riding experience since the dropper post."
"One seat position isn't actually the optimum position most of the time… sometimes on the super steep climbs you've got to get your weight right over the front and at the same time keep some pressure on the saddle so I think this is a really cool idea."
"All body types will benefit from the improved ergonomics when climbing and feel less vulnerable with a seat in a friendly, positive angle while descending."
I have skipped rides before when my seat was angled for downhill parks but there was some interesting pedaling action in the same town, but not this summer. Can't beat a tipped-back seat for downhill: it gives you a bunch of extra butt clearance, and it's way more comfy when coasting downhill on smooth sections. This thing is a miracle. If you don't have a dropper, get one of those first (you crazy weight weenie you), but this is pretty amazing too.
Great, we'll engineered bit of kit.... already making a difference to my riding. Highly recommended
La switchgrade se monte facilement et l'utilisation est très instinctive. On ressens bien chaque clic de position.
Je mets 4 étoile car j'aurais aimé retrouver un réglage d'angle maxi et mini.
En effet, sur mon vélo scor je trouve l'angle de la position montée trop sur l'avant et j'aurais aimé pouvoir le reduire afin de pouvoir utilisé cette position de manière agréable sur des montées a partir de 8%. Actuellement je suis obliger de l'utiliser plutôt a partir de 12% et en dessous, je suis légèrement gêner par la position intermédiaire.
Pour info, j'ai une selle fizik aidon .
Merci en tout cas pour cette innovation.
It’s already been said, but this SwitchGrade really makes a difference to your riding, the increased confidence is inspiring, another product you thought you didn’t need but actually ought to welcome with open arms. Need to buy another one for my hardtail
