SWITCHGRADE™ A game-changing new bike component that lets you change your saddle angle on the fly so you can climb easier, get rowdy on descents, and cover distances in comfort.
Let customers speak for us
Currently running this on a banshee titan I can’t get the seat post low enough on. Love it for the super steeps. Climbs and descents!
Great machined piece.
So, I herniated a disc in November and I had my eye on the SwitchGrade for a while wit the thought that Climb Mode would help out a lot and I must say, this thing is a life saver! I love the feeling of the saddle pushing me more upright and forward for climbs. The DH tilt looks totally rad as well. Amazing built quality and lever action too. I love this thing!
Super Produit pour ma pratique!!!
Finition vraiment top qualité au rendez-vous
Je recommande vraiment le SwitchGrade
Merci pour cette belles inventions
E’ un idea fantastica funziona sia per ottimizzare la salita che per la discesa costruito con materiali eccellenti molto solido lo consiglio.
The SwitchGrade has really made climbing steeps more comfortable and efficient. I can really lay the power down without wasting energy holding on to the handlebars and trying not to slip off the back of the saddle
I was looking for a solution to avoid tilting up my enduro seat everytime I ride bikepark as I like to have maximum space to move on the bike. The Switchgrade solve my problem with downhill position but most of all, reduce lower back pain while gaining rear wheel traction uphill.
No doubt this will be an enduro standard soon.
Ce support de selle est super, je peut enfin des grosses côtes sans que le velo ce cabre, on peut choisir sa trace et profiter de la motricité. L'essayer, c'est l'adopter
Went out on my first ride with the Switchgrade today. Climbing is much more easier, efficient and less tired at the end of my ride. I hope that it lasts for years to come.
I never knew I needed it until I started using it.
This kit is very helpful, you need to get used it to it cause at first time use, you will have to stop and switch to climbing and then at the top stop and then switch to down seat position. After a few rides though, I got used to it switching on a fly from climbing to going down without stopping. It’s hard to ride without it!
Hi, my First feelings when using SwitchGrade are amazig. On the First 1'30h long climb I was 10minutes faster without any extra effort, but my lungs have been reminded by the whole Time that the body is not yet ready for so much faster pace. Back pain was also 90% lower. When descending, the position seat for dh gives me more control over the bike, I was faster on the descent too. With the suspension, this was the Best upgrade on my bike.
Switch Grade I Will be highly recommended to anyone with back pain problems, and also to everyone else...
Any hesitation of purchasing a somewhat pricey component was put to rest before 1st hr of riding was complete, no joke. This thing is the sh!t. I'm 5'6" and ride a medium Scott Genius after last couple years of riding a small frame trail bike so it's more to handle but I've been blown away with how much I love the climbing position with the Switchgrade. I tricked out my build with high end components but the Switchgrade is my favorite addition. Look fwd to bike park season and more enduro opening when it dries up to fully test the positive position. Great customer interaction as I even had a chat on IG about some customizing options the week before I received mine and he mocked up a raw/gold combo just out of curiosity. I stuck with the Gold Rush but just shows how passionate they are about happy customers. Cheers
I’m tall for size large Transition Repeater and Sentinel I ride. I prefer a smaller bike vs a larger size. I run a 240mm dropper. The SwitchGrade allows me to get into a better position for climbing and descending. A real problem solver for me. I also appreciate the craftsmanship and North American manufacturing. Great product!
I got my SwitchGrade 2 weeks ago. It's well built, installation was a breeze. This is something that I didn't even know I needed until I tried it, way more comfortable on the climbs with the seat tilted forward!!! I highly recommend this!!!
I use it with a Oneup dropper on my trailbike, works great for steep uphills and is nice to have for downhill! Installation was easy! I managed to live without it for more than 30years - but now looking forward to biking with SwitchGrade all the years to come 😊!
The Experts weigh in...
ELIMINATE GROIN & BACK PAIN, CLIMB EFFICIENTLY, DESCEND WITH CONFIDENCE
“I’ve been riding the SwitchGrade for couple weeks now, and I simply love it. Having the ability to get a proper seat positions for climbing and descending is a game changer, it’s a product I’ll use all the time on all my bikes 🤘” - Yoann Barelli, Professional Freerider, Proprietor, Into The Gnar Progression Team
“Tried it last night for first time! Amazing in climbing, flat, and descending mode!! So good!! Easy to Switch, solid, and good angles! I will need to use one of these forever now! Ha ha Well done sir!! Everyone should have these!!” - Brett Tippie, Professional Freerider, MTB Legend
"After spending a few long days in the saddle with SwitchGrade installed, I can definitely say that the benefits are noticeable. From a biomechanics perspective, the forward tilted position definitely creates a more anteriorly rotated pelvis in the seated position. That's anatomy speak for better lower back posture, and better power transfer during seated, steep climbs. From a shredding perspective, the rearward tilt gives you a noticeably increased standover height over your dropped saddle for full send, downhill procedures. I can't wait to get more time on the bike with Switchgrade aboard." - Dr. Josh Harris DPT, Osteopractic, MTBer, Owner, Somercycle Bike Shop
"When riding up a steep slope, a traditionally neutral saddle tilt will cause the pelvis to tilt posteriorly. This has a number of implications, both above and below the level of the hip. In addition to over-lengthening and stressing muscles of the lumbar spine, an aggressive posterior pelvic tilt alters the position of the hip joint relative to other structures in the body. This changes the leverage capabilities of the hip and surrounding muscles, particularly in regards to hip extension. Excessive posterior pelvic tilt also has a negative impact upon quadriceps muscle recruitment, and has the potential to affect the degree of terminal knee extension during pedal stroke. What this boils down to is both an uncomfortable and inefficient riding position. A negative saddle tilt, such as that provided by the SwitchGrade, helps mitigate this change in pelvic tilt during steep, seated climbing." - Dr. Adam Phaneuf, Professional Bike Fitter, Owner, Apex Chiropractic and Rehab
"As a coach who is always looking for ways to help riders feel more comfortable on the bike, I saw immediately how this could keep pressure off their sensitive under-bits for those long steep climbs. After riding on the Switchgrade I was surprised by how much I missed it when riding on my bikes without one. It made my normal saddle position I've been riding for 20yrs feel like it was pointing straight up when climbing. I plan to introduce a lot of new people to the Switchgrade and to make sure all my bikes have one on it."- Harlan Price, Level II PMBIA Instructor, Owner/Head Coach, Take Aim Cycling
